Can Denver contain Brown?
Antonio Brown doesn’t have a lot of quiet games, but will he be silenced tonight when the Pittsburgh Steelers face the Denver Broncos?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Pittsburgh is favored at home in this game, as the Steelers are getting odds of -7 points against the Broncos. The over/under total for the game has been set at 45.5 points. These two meet today at 4:25PM ET and the game airs live on CBS.
Brown is second in the NFL in receptions (100) and receiving yards (1,397). He also has seven touchdowns this season for the Steelers (8-5, 8-4-1 ATS), but today he faces the Broncos (10-3, 7-6 ATS), which come in with the league’s best passing defense. Denver is giving up just 188.2 passing yards per game this season and the Broncos also allow the fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers at just 9.5 per game.
Oddsmakers still have given Brown some lofty numbers to hit tonight, as his over/under for receptions is 7.5 and his over/under for receiving yards is 102.5. Denver has held four of its last five opponents to just 60 yards from receivers, total. Brown is certainly at another level, but he will also draw plenty of defensive attention. Brown has at least 8 receptions in six games this year and at least 102 receiving yards in seven games.
