Pittsburgh snapped a four-game losing streak both on the field and at the window with a 24-9 victory versus the Browns last Sunday in Cleveland. Before covering as an 8-point favorite, the Steelers had failed to cover in losses at Miami, versus New England, at Baltimore and versus Dallas. The Steelers improved their record to 5-5 with the victory and are 5-5 against the spread this season.

The Colts have now won back-to-back games for the first time this season. After beating the Packers 31-26 in Green Bay as a 7.5-point underdog, Indianapolis held on to beat Tennessee 24-17 as a 3-point home favorite last week. With that win, the Colts are now 5-5 on the year and 5-4-1 against the spread. They're 3-2 straight up at home this season.

OUR PREDICTION: If you're going to pick one game to bet the over this week, this matchup might be the best option. The Colts are averaging 26.3 points per game but are surrendering 27.3 PPG defensively. As for the Steelers, they're averaing 23.8 points per contest and allowing 21.5 PPG. Pittsburgh's defense looked good last week but it was against the feeble Cleveland Browns. Luck should be able to take advantage of a defense that can't rush the passer and is allowing 267.9 passing yards per game (26th in the NFL). Likewise for Big Ben, who should shred the Colts' secondary. The over is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams.
