The Baltimore Ravens will play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Baltimore Ravens are 8-4 this season after they defeated the Denver Broncos by a score of 10-9 in their last game. Baltimore lost Lamar Jackson early in this game, but their defense was able to hold Denver to only 272 yards and 2-12 on third down attempts in the win. The Baltimore Ravens are averaging 23.8 points per game with 192.4 passing yards per game and 157.8 rushing yards per game. Lamar Jackson is doubtful for this game, so it is likely that Tyler Huntley will start this game at quarterback for the Ravens. Kenyan Drake has rushed for 421 yards and three touchdowns, while Mark Andrews has caught 56 passes for 654 yards and five scores for Baltimore. The Baltimore defense is giving up 19.7 points per game and 330.5 yards per game.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 5-7 this season after they defeated the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 19-16 in their last game. Pittsburgh out gained Atlanta by a total of 351-306 and held them to 3-10 on third down attempts in the win. The Pittsburgh Steelers are averaging 17.8 points per game with 199.3 passing yards per game and 117 rushing yards per game. Kenny Pickett has thrown for 1,797 yards, four touchdowns, and eight interceptions for the Steelers this season. Najee Harris (questionable) has rushed for 671 yards and four scores, while Pat Freiermuth has caught 50 passes for 597 yards and one touchdown for Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh defense is allowing 23.1 points per game and 362.6 yards per game.

Baltimore is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 December games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games. The under is 7-2 in Baltimore’s last 9 games. Pittsburgh is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 7-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 9 home games. The underdog is 19-6-3 ATS in these two teams last 28 head to head meetings.

Baltimore comes into this game dealing with some injuries, a sputtering offense, and a backup quarterback. Pittsburgh has won two games in a row and will have home field advantage. Lamar Jackson is a huge missing piece for the Ravens, if he cannot play in this game, and we saw how their offense looked without him last week. With Lamar’s status doubtful, I like Pittsburgh here.
