Steelers vs. Saints Preseason Pick

NFL Picks Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New Orleans Saints Preseason 8/26/16

The line has jumped two full points in tonight's preseason matchup between the Steelers and Saints at 8:00PM ET. Will tonight be high-scoring?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Saints are now 3-point home favorites versus the Steelers after opening as a 1-point fave. As for the total, the number opened at 45 but has been bet down a half point to 44.5.

Bet Tonight's NFL Preseason Games

The Steelers were shut out in their second exhibition game, losing 17-0 to the Eagles at home as a 2.5-point home favorite last week. With Ben Roethlisberger out, Landry Jones was an awful 12-of-20 passing for 111 yards and four interceptions. Dustin Vaughan didn't fare much better at 7-of-13 passing for 67 yards, but at least he avoided turnovers.

The Saints didn't look much sharper offensively in their second preseason game either, falling 16-9 to the Texans last Saturday. Drew Brees attempted eight passes, completing five for 29 yards with an interception. His backup Luke McCOwn was 14-of-19 for 118 yards with no touchdowns and no picks.

OUR PICK: The Saints scored 22 points in Foxboro their opening exhibition game, so the nine-point total they had last week was an aberration. The same could be said about the Steelers scoring zero points last week. Roethlisberger is expected to play tonight after not suiting up for either Pittsburgh preseason game. Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are likely to play tonight as well, meaning the Steelers should contribute heavily to the scoring. Take the over.
