Are the Denver Broncos overrated, and are the Pittsburgh Steelers underrated? The answers to these questions are likely going to be answered on Sunday when the Broncos visit the Steelers. Denver currently sits at 3-1 and Pittsburgh’s record is 1-3. Plenty of betting chances so we are going to look at some odds and betting lines and will give you our expert advice.
Our Broncos vs Steelers Prediction on the spread betting
The current line is PIT Steelers -1.0 @ -110 and quite honestly, our team is puzzled by this. Obviously, the bookies think that Teddy Bridgewater won’t play in the game, but this hasn’t been decided yet. Even with Drew Lock under center, the Broncos may still be the right side to bet here.
The Steelers are 1-3 ATS and Denver is 3-1. That ‘’famed’’ Steelers defense allows an average of 357.8 yards per game while The Broncos defensive unit keeps its opponents to 267.8 yards and is currently 4th in the league in this metric. We don’t think Pittsburgh can score effectively with their 16.8 points per game (28th in the league).
The Denver Broncos odds at +1.0 make complete sense to us.
Our best bet and score prediction on the Denver vs Pittsburgh game
All bookies suggest that this will be a low-scoring affair with the total being set at 39.5. This is the type of line you set when two backup quarterbacks face each other. Seems like Big Ben is now outside of the top 32 QBs in the league.
We think this is exactly right as Pittsburgh struggles to put any points on the board. That being said, our best pick on the match would be the Pittsburgh Steelers to score under 19.5 @ +100. The yards per play for the Steelers are 4.9 and the total yards per game that the team achieves are only 310.8. Ben Roethlisberger cannot move and can barely complete a pass. He currently has 1033 pass yards, 4 TDs and 4 interceptions in 4 games. This bet definitely tells you that the Pittsburgh Steelers odds to score over 19.5 aren’t great. Bet the under.
Players to keep an eye on during the match
Von Miller: After taking 2020 with an ankle injury Miller has looked good so far this season. He has racked up 4.5 sacks in 4 starts and we just may see one or two more on Sunday.
Najee Harris: The Steelers will need their 1st-round running back to step up. Harris has an average of 13.8 carries per game this season and that’s not enough. He has only 2 touchdowns and this needs to improve too.
