Steelers vs Cardinals 2019 NFL Week 14 Lines, Analysis & Prediction

 
  • When: Sunday, Dec.8 at 4:25 pm ET
  • Where: State Farm Stadium, Glendale, AZ
  • TV: CBS
  • ATS Odds: Steelers -2 ½
  • Over/Under Total Odds: 43 ½

Why the Pittsburgh Steelers are a good bet  -2 ½?

Pittsburgh started their third-string quarterback in Week 13. Look what happened? Devlin Hodges led the Steelers to an improbable 20-13 win over the rival Cleveland Browns. Hodges didn’t produce Peyton Manning like stats. He did make the offense efficient. He also only threw a single interception. Pittsburgh’s defense has played like one of the best units in football the past 6 weeks. If Hodges plays within himself, the Steelers defense will do the rest.

Team Statistics

Offense:
  • Total Yards: 291.3
  • Passing Yards: 200.5
  • Rushing Yards: 90.8
  • Points Scored: 19.7
Defense:
  • Total Yards: 317.2
  • Passing Yards: 213.5
  • Rushing Yards: 103.7
  • Points Allowed: 18.8

Why Arizona Cardinals are a good bet +2 ½?

The Arizona Cardinals have sputtered straight up in their last 4. They remain one of the top teams in the NFL against the spread, though. The Cardinals are 7-4-1 ATS. They’ve gone 2-1-1 ATS in their last 4.  Pittsburgh’s defense is tough. It won’t be easy to break down. But Kyler Murray can run or pass the football. That should keep the Steelers’ D guessing.

Offense:
  • Total Yards: 331.8
  • Passing Yards: 217.7

Steelers vs Cardinals Final NFL Betting Analysis

Arizona suffered a massive beating at the hands of Jared Goff and the L.A. Rams in Week 13. Goff threw for 424 yards and 2 touchdowns. Devlin Hodges doesn’t have to play like Jared Goff for the Steelers to win this game on Sunday.

If Hodges doesn’t make any mistakes, the Steelers win and cover. Arizona has a good offense. It faces one of the better defenses in the NFL on Dec. 8, though. Only one team has scored more than 21 points against the Steelers in the past 6 weeks. Pittsburgh beat Indianapolis 26-24 in that game.

The Steelers allow 18.8 points on average from 317.2 yards per. Arizona won’t move the football with consistency. That means, Pittsburgh takes this SU and ATS.
