Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Steelers are 3-point favorites to beat the Broncos. The total, meanwhile, sits at 46.5 points. As of this writing, 67% of the public betting tickets are on the Steelers to cover the point spread.
Ben Roethlisberger completed 27-of-47 passes for 314 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Jaguars. Roethlisberger also added the game-winning 1-yard touchdown run with five seconds left to give the Steelers a come from behind victory after being behind 16-0 with 2:09 left in the third quarter. Things got off to a disastrous start as Roethlisberger had just 53 passing yards at the half with two interceptions. He found Antonio Brown on a 78-yard busted coverage to get the Steelers on the board and then added an 11-yard score to Vance McDonald late in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger will be a QB1 option next week on the road in Denver.
Case Keenum completed 19-of-32 passes for 205 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 victory over the Chargers. Keenum faced pressure from Joey Bosa all day, but was never sacked. The 30-year-old got off to a sluggish start, completing just nine of 17 throws for 56 scoreless yards in the first half. Keenum found a little more daylight after halftime, however, reviving Emmanuel Sanders after he was invisible for much of the first three quarters. The first-year Bronco was money on the final drive, converting five of six passes (the lone incompletion came when he spiked it to stop the clock with three seconds remaining) for 86 yards as the Broncos walked it off on a game-winning field goal by Brandon McManus. Keenum and the 4-6 Broncos host Pittsburgh in Week 12.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 12-1 in the Steelers’ last 13 road games versus a team with a losing home record.
The under is 4-0 in the Broncos’ last four home games and is 9-2 in their last 11 home games versus a team with a winning road record.
The Steelers were getting shutout for most of their game last Sunday against the Jaguars but rallied in the fourth quarter to pull off an impressive victory. Big Ben struggled in the win but then again, he has struggled against that Jacksonville defense the last three times he has faced the Jags. If the Steelers can get Von Miller blocked then Roethlisberger should have a bigger game Sunday than he did last week. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams.
