Packers vs. Steelers Total Pick
Will Sunday night's matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers fall under the betting total? Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET.
Matchup: Packers (5-5) at Steelers (8-2)
TV: NBC, 8:30 p.m. ET
Line: Steelers -14
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 43.5 points after hitting the board at 41.5. The Steelers, meanwhile, opened as 14.5-point home favorites to beat the Packers but the line is now down to 14.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, just over 60% of the tickets are on the Steelers to cover the double-digit spread this weekend.
KEY TRENDS: The Packers are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games coming off a loss and are 1-4 against the number in their last five games overall. On the other side, the Steelers are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six home games and have now cashed in four of their last five games.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 13-3 in the Steelers' last 16 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points. It is also 35-15-1 in their last 51 games overall, is 37-17-1 in their last 55 games coming off a win, and is 22-8-1 in their last 31 games when they covered the point spread in their previous game.
The Steelers have a ton of offensive firepower but they've been an under-producing machine this season. As for the Packers, they were shut out last week at home by the Ravens, whose defense is on par with the Steelers' D. Brett Hundley can't move this Green Bay offense and the Packers have been exposed for a below-average team without superstar Aaron Rodgers. I don't see how Green Bay scores more than 7-10 points on Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
