Steelers-Broncos Pick

The Monday Night Football matchup is a great one, as the 6-1 Denver Broncos host the 5-2 Pittsburgh Steelers at 8:35PM ET.

Bet NFL Week 9

The Steelers defeated the Vikings 27-17 as a 6-point favorite in Week 7, giving them plenty of confidence heading into their bye. LaMarr Woodley scored on a fumble recovery in that game and Keyaron Fox scored on an interception return to give Pittsburgh the win and cover.

The Broncos suffered the first loss of the season last week in 30-7 loss to the Ravens. Kyle Orton passed for 152 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions for Denver, while Knowshon Moreno rushed for 39 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Denver failed to cover as 4.5-point underdogs.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Steelers 3-point favorites over the Broncos on Monday night. The over/under total for this game has been set at 40 points.

Some trends to consider in this game is that Denver is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games, while the over has covered in four of Pittsburgh’s last five games, and in four of the Steelers’ last five games on the road.

Even though their loss last week to the Ravens was a bit surprising, the Broncos still aren’t getting enough respect. They’re 6-1 on the year and are 6-1 against the spread this season, yet still find themselves underdogs at home.

The Steelers have won four straight, but only covered in two of those games and were fortunate to cover two weeks ago against Minnesota. Without those two fourth quarter defensive touchdowns, Pittsburgh wouldn’t have covered the 6-point spread against the Vikings.

Our free pick for this game is the Broncos +3. Denver has risen to the occasion several times this season, especially at home where its beaten the Cowboys and Patriots as underdogs. We don’t think their 6-1 record is a fluke and believe they’ll beat Pittsburgh outright on Monday night.

Our NFL Week 9 Free Pick for this matchup is: DENVER BRONCOS +3 and OVER 40.
