Why Bet The Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh has won three straight and looked pretty good in overpowering the New York Giants in their 24-14 win on Sunday while Buffalo fell completely apart in their humbling 38-24 loss to red-hot Oakland – after jumping out to a commanding 24-9 lead. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 14-of-20 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers to victory.
For the season, Roethlisberger has thrown for 3,034 yards with 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions while dual-threat running back Le’Veon Bell has rushed for a team-high 817 yards and three touchdowns. Perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown has caught a whopping 88 passes for 1,052 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Why Bet The Buffalo Bills
The Bills have lost three of their last five games overall and fell completely apart in their humbling 38-24 loss to Oakland last weekend despite being up 24-9 midway through the third quarter.
Starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed just 18 of 35 passes for 170 with no touchdowns and one interception while veteran running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 170 yards in the loss. For the season, Taylor has passed for 2,292 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions while McCoy has rushed for a team-high 949 yards and nine scores.
Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Bills have a slight edge in scoring over the Steelers, but Pittsburgh has the edge in points allowed. Still, the Bills don’t have the leadership – or defensive competence – they need in order to stop Ben Roethlisberger and a desperate Steelers team that is tied for first place in the AFC North with Baltimore.
The Steelers are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games against Buffalo while the Bills have gone 1-4 ATS in their last five games and 2-4 SU in their last six. More importantly, I don’t trust the Bills and underachieving head coach rex Ryan very much and neither should you. Simply put, Pittsburgh gets another great effort from their stupendous trio of Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown to win outright and cover the NFL betting line.
My final score prediction is Pittsburgh 28 Buffalo 24
