Bet NFL Week 3 Games


The Steelers are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games played in the month of September and are 8-3-1 against the number in their last 12 games overall. They've also covered the spread in five of their last seven road games and are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games following a win of more than 14 points.


The Bears are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus a team with a winning record and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six home games. That said, they're just 1-8 against the number in their last eight games in September.

OUR PREDICTION: Ben Roethlisberger is now notorious for playing explosive at home but somewhat lackluster on the road (his numbers are still good away from Pittsburgh, but the splits are dramatic). Thus, the Steelers should score plenty but a 30-point performance is unlikely. On the other side, the Bears' offense has struggled under Mike Glennon but their defense appears improved under John Fox and Vic Fangio. When Atlanta came to Chicago in Week 1, the Bears blanketed Julio Jones and dominated the Falcons' offensive line with an improved front four. I expect the something on Sunday, with the Bears doubling Antonio Brown and keeping Le'Veon Bell somewhat in check.
