PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Ravens are receiving 52% of the tickets and 61% of the money to cover the spread as a road underdog on Sunday night.

INJURY REPORT: Jeremy Maclin is dealing with a back injury but is probable to play for the Ravens. Meanwhile, linebacker C.J. Mosley (ankle), running back Terrance West (calf), and receiver Breshad Perriman are all questionable. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (Achilles) joined guard Marshal Yanda (ankle) as current Baltimore players that are out for the year.

On the other side, Antonio Brown is probable with a toe injury but JuJu Smith-Schuster has been suspended one game for his hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and won't play Sunday night. Ryan Shazier is also out for the year after suffering a terrifying back injury in that same game in Cincinnati, while safety Mike Mitchell (ankle) is questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams and is a perfect 4-0 in the Ravens' last four divisional games. The under is also 13-5-1 in the Steelers' last 19 games versus AFC North opponents, is 7-3 in their last 10 games on grass, and is 19-8 in their last 27 conference games. This figures to be a typical Baltimore-Pittsburgh game: Physical and relatively low-scoring.
