Steelers vs. Patriots Free Pick
The NFL will kick off its 2015 season tonight at 8:30PM ET when the Patriots host the Steelers. Is New England being overvalued by oddsmakers?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Patriots are 7-point favorites over the Steelers while the over/under is sitting at 51 points. At one point the number was as low as 2.5 when it appeared Tom Brady would miss the game due to a suspension, but the line jumped back up to 7. As for the total, it opened at 48.5 before jumping to 51.
Neither team is going to have a great running game but if it gets sloppy in the rain, Pittsburgh should be better with DeAngelo Williams at running back. Pittsburgh also has more weapons at receiver with Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton along with Heath Miller.
New England lacks a strong pass rush and its secondary misses Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, who left in free agency. Expect Tom Brady to be a bit rusty after not playing much in preseason.
