Ravens vs. Steelers Free Pick
NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ravens are 3.5-point favorites versus the Steelers, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 40.5 points. Baltimore is 7-2 overall and 2-2 on the road, while Pittsburgh is 6-3 overall and 4-0 at home.
Line Movement: The Steelers opened as a 3-point favorite but the spread flipped as soon as the news broke that Ben Roethlisberger would miss the game with an injured shoulder and ribs. The Ravens are now 3.5-point favorites and the total has dropped from 46 to 40.5.
Public Betting: Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 85% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Ravens. This information is subject to change leading up to kickoff, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most up-to-date NFL public betting numbers.
NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take the over. According to latest NFL trends, the over is 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings between these two teams in Pittsburgh and 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings overall. The over is also 6-2 in the Steelers’ last eight games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game and 19-7-1 in their last 27 home games versus a team with a winning road record. Even with Byron Leftwich under center, the Steelers should reach the end zone a few times against a Baltimore defense that has struggled since losing defenders Ray Lewis and Ladarius Webb. And with the Ravens scoring 55 points last week against Oakland, Joe Flacco and Co. should have plenty of confidence coming into tonight.
