The Ravens come into this game off of an impressive 28-10 thumping of arch rival Cleveland, giving rookie QB Joe Flacco his second straight win and a 2-0 record against the football betting line. The Steelers are coming off of a rough 15-6 loss at the hands of in-state rival Philadelphia in which starting RB Willie Parker and DT Casey Hampton got hurt.
The Ravens defense has been phenomenal so far this season and allowed just 169 total yards against Cleveland while forcing QB Derek Anderson into throwing three interceptions. Last week, RB LeRon McClain was the star of the game by carrying for 66 yards and two touchdowns, while Pro Bowl S Ed Reed returned one of Anderson’s interceptions for a touchdown.
For the Ravens to stay undefeated, rookie QB Joe Flacco must improve from his 13-of-19 129 yard and two interception effort. After having the NFL’s worst pro football gambling record last season (3-13 ATS), the Ravens 2-0 start against the NFL betting line shows a solid turnaround in the eyes of NFL sportsbettors.
The Steelers meanwhile were heralded as one of the AFC’s best teams by most prognosticators until last week’s ugly loss at Philadelphia. The offensive line gave up a shocking nine sacks in the game, which included six in the second quarter alone. Pro Bowl QB Ben Roethlisberger was also ineffective, completing just 13-of-25 passes for 131 yards and one interception.
The Steelers vaunted rushing game also ran for just 33 yards on 19 carries overall. With the Steelers defense holding opponents to 14 PPG on average, it comes as no surprise to NFL gamblers that the Steelers last two games have comfortably sailed under the ‘total’ per the closing pro football betting odds.
Currently, NFL lines show the Steelers as seven-point home favorites with a game ‘total’ of 35.5. You can bet on this game and fulfill all your other NFL wagering desires for Week 4 at Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook, where the player always comes first.
