Steelers vs. Titans Week 7 Prediction
One of the best matchups on Week 7’s NFL schedule features the Steelers taking on the Titans at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. Laying just 1-point as a home favorite, are the Titans the best play on the board or will the Steelers cash as the small dog?
477 Pittsburgh Steelers (+1) at 478 Tennessee Titans (-1); o/u 51

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin
Diontae Johnson was removed from Pittsburgh's Week 7 injury report. Steelers are hoping to have Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster available for a full game for the first time since Chase Claypool's emergence. With James Washington still active as the team's go-to deep threat, the fallout of Pittsburgh's expanded target tree is something worth monitoring on Sunday. Both Claypool and Johnson remain fantasy players' safest options with Smith-Schuster falling in line as a FLEX play.
Tennessee Titans DFS Spin
Titans TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) has no injury designation on the team's Friday practice report. What looked like a fairly serious ankle injury won't keep Smith out of the Titans' Week 7 game against the Steelers. Fantasy managers should keep the touchdown-scoring machine in their lineups. The Week 7 streaming dream of Anthony Firkser was fun while it lasted.
Steelers vs. Titans Betting Prediction
This matchup is too close to call from a spread standpoint but I do see some value in the total. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Nashville. The over is also a perfect 4-0 in the Titans’ last four games overall, is 4-0 in their last four home games and has cashed in five of their last five games when they’re coming off a win.
