The Line: Pittsburgh Steelers +3 -- Over/Under: 42.5
The Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers will match up on the NFL circuit Sunday.
Baltimore enters this game at 2-2 on the year. The Ravens won their first pair versus the Dolphins 59-10 and Cardinals 23-17 but fell 33-28 to the Chiefs and 40-25 to the Browns.
In the Browns loss, Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson posted 247 yards with three TDs and two picks, while Mark Ingram had 71 yards rushing. Willie Snead added 61 yards and a TD off two catches there.
Over on the Steelers’ side, they’re 1-3 this year. Pittsburgh opened up with losses to the Patriots 33-3, Seahawks 28-26 and 49ers 24-20 but took care of the Bengals in Week 4 27-3.
In the Cincinnati win, Steelers QB Mason Rudolph had 229 yards with two TDs and James Conner added 42 yards rushing. Conner was also the lead receiver in that game with 83 yards and a score on eight catches.
The Ravens are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 in October. Baltimore is 1-4 ATS in their last five in Week 5 and 1-4 ATS in the last five versus the AFC.
Meanwhile, the Steelers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the AFC North. Pitt is 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 in Week 5 and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 in October.
Baltimore really didn’t show up in the Cleveland game, and 30 points allowed in the second half did them in. Offensively they’ve done pretty well at scoring, but they’ve coughed up a combined 73 points over their last two games.
As for the Steelers, they’re still trying to find their bearings after the loss of Roethlisberger, but the big divisional win in Week 4 is a good start. Still, I don’t think Pittsburgh is ready to keep up here—even at home—so I’m going Ravens.
