Steelers vs. Colts Total Pick
Will the under cash this Sunday for sports bettors when the Indianapolis Colts host the Pittsburgh Steelers at 1:00 p.m. ET?
Matchup: Steelers (6-2) at Colts (3-6)
TV: CBS, 1:00 p.m. ET
Line: Steelers -10 (45)
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 45 points after hitting the board at 43. The Steelers, meanwhile, opened as a 9.5-point road favorite over the Colts but the line is up to 10 at the majority of sports books.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, over 60% of public bettors are backing Pittsburgh and laying the points.
KEY TRENDS: The Steelers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, are 8-3 against the number in their last 11 road games, and are 9-4-1 against the number in their last 14 games versus conference opponents. The Colts, meanwhile, are 9-1 against the spread in their last 10 games played in November but are just 1-9-1 against the number in their last 11 games following a win.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in four of the lsat five meetings between these two teams and I’d take it again on Sunday if the Steelers were firing on all cylinders. But they’re not. Le’Veon Bell has started to find more running room than he did earlier in the year but Ben Roethlisberger continues to struggle moving this passing attack.
Even if the Steelers do move the ball consistently against a horrible Colts defense, will Jacoby Brissett score enough on Pittsburgh to help contribute to the over? I doubt it. I think the total for this game has been set too high.
