Who We Like: Pittsburgh. I just don’t trust Brett Hundley to keep the game close. The Steelers haven’t exactly been blowing many teams out this year but they did last Thursday night in a victory over the Titans. The game was close until the fourth quarter when Pittsburgh pulled away. Now that it’s November and we’re inching closer to the playoffs, the Steelers will start hitting their stride.
Green Bay is 3-9 against the spread in its last 12 games in November, is 1-4 against the number in its last five games coming off a loss of more than 14 points, and is winless at 0-4 against the number in its last four games versus a team with a winning record.
On the other side, the Steelers are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six home games, is 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 7-3-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
