Steelers vs. Redskins Odds
Monday Night Football’s doubleheader kicks off tonight at 7:10PM ET when the Washington Redskins host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Here are the latest odds.
According to the oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Steelers were favored on the road, as they were given odds of -2.5 points against the Redskins. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 49.5 points. These two haven’t met since the 2012 season, but the Steelers have won five straight meetings, going 3-2 against the spread in those five contests. These two have also hit the under in five straight meetings.
The Steelers are coming off a 10-6 season where they had just a number of injuries to deal with. This season, Pittsburgh comes in with Super Bowl aspirations as they return a very potent offense. While Le’Veon Bell is out for the first three games, the team still has Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown to lead the way. They had the third-ranked offense in 2015, averaging just under 400 yards per game. The defense needs to improve some, as they allowed 363.1 yards per game last season, but part of that was due to the shootouts Pittsburgh got into thanks to their explosive offense.
The Redskins are coming off a NFC East title in 2015 despite having the 28th-ranked defense in the NFL. Washington has tried to address that in the offseason, adding Josh Norman to the secondary. On offense, the Redskins have some potential. Kirk Cousins is playing on a 1-year deal after throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns in 2015. He developed Jordan Reed into the tight end many have thought he could be, catching 87 passes for 952 yards with 11 touchdowns. This game definitely has the potential to be another shootout with both quarterbacks healthy and ready to go.
