The Steelers are 11-5-1 against the spread in their last 17 games played in October, are 21-8-2 against the number in their last 31 road games versus a team with a winning home record and are 20-8 at the betting window in their last 28 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

Where they have struggled is coming off a loss, where they are just 4-13-2 against the spread in their last 19 games.
OUR PREDICTION: Ben Roethlisberger continues to have issues on the road compared to at home but I don't see how Joe Flacco and Co. keep up this afternoon. Flacco has been highly ineffective after missing all of preseason recovering from a back injury and with the amount of problems the team has along its offensive line, I don't see how the Ravens move the ball today. Baltimore's defense is much better than what it showed a week ago in London but the bottom line is that it still got lit up by Blake Bortles and had no time to decompress after flying cross-country Despite the fact that the Steelers are on the road and this is a rivalry game, I don't like much about the Ravens' chances this afternoon.
