Pittsburgh stormed back to beat Denver & move to 9-5. Baltimore is 4-10 and would love nothing more than to beat their bitter AFC north rivals, and deal a blow to their playoff hopes.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -10 -105 at Pinnacle
The Steelers were favored at -10 on the road and the NFL odds moved to -10.5, then back to -10. Pittsburgh outscored Denver 21-0 in the second half of a 34-27 win at home, and the Steelers have now scored 30 points or more in their last six games. No offense is scarier in the NFL right now, and that is awful news for the Ravens, who were romped 34-14 at home by Kansas City. The Ravens have allowed 69 points in back-to-back losses at home to Seattle and Kansas City, both at home, and Pittsburgh's offense might be more explosive. The Steelers will also have revenge on their minds as they lost to the Ravens 23-20 in Week 4 in overtime, but they were without QB Ben Roethlisberger. The Ravens also had QB Joe Flacco, who has been injured. Baltimore won't give up easily against their biggest rivals, but they're going to be overmatched on paper.

Injuries
The Steelers are probably about as healthy as they have been all season, which is great news. Roethlisberger is probably still bothered by his knee or maybe his foot, but it isn't hindering him at all. Pittsburgh needs him for this playoff push as they're technically in the final spot thanks to a tiebreaker over the New York Jets, but losing would throw a massive wrench in their plans.

CB Jimmy Smith has a thigh injury that could cause him to miss this game, and the Ravens need all the defensive backs they can get. The secondary held up well in the first meeting with the Steelers, but they were facing Michael Vick. Roethlisberger is a little better than Vick, you could say.

 

Trends
The Steelers are 7-4-3 ATS this season, going 3-2-1 ATS on the road, while Baltimore is 3-9-2 ATS, including a terrible 0-6-1 ATS at home. The total is set at 47.5 and the Steelers have gone under eight times, and the Ravens have gone over seven times.

The Ravens are 7-3 SU and 4-4-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Steelers, and this is the highest spread since November 2007 when Pittsburgh covered a 9-point line at home. In Baltimore, the Ravens are 7-3 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 against the Steelers.
