NFL betting fans have been impressed with the resurgent Ravens and it looks as though the Steelers have finally hit their football betting stride at the perfect time. The Baltimore Ravens have been one of the most consistently profitable NFL betting commodities this season as they are 14-4 against the NFL odds.
Defense is the main reason for Baltimore’s football betting success as they ranked 2nd overall in the league. The Ravens defense was definitely the NFL betting difference last week in their 13-10 win at Tennessee as 3 point dogs.
Quarterback Joe Flacco, while not considered a true football betting asset, has not made mistakes in the post season which is all that is asked of him. Baltimore is a strong NFL betting road team with a mark of 8-2 against the spread. As a NFL betting dog the Ravens are 7-3 against the board this year.
Since November 20 the Pittsburgh Steelers have really gotten their NFL betting stride going. Pittsburgh has beaten the NFL odds in 6 of their last 7 games entering this matchup. The Steelers wore down San Diego last week 35-24 in a NFL betting cover as 6.5 point chalks. Pittsburgh’s main NFL betting asset is its top ranked defense.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has improved his play and he would seem to be the NFL betting difference in this matchup if he brings his best game. Last week Big Ben threw for 181 yards and a TD with no picks. Willie Parker ran for 146 yards in last week’s Steeler win with 2 TD’s.
Pittsburgh has a good NFL betting trend going against the Ravens in which they have covered 14 of their last 21 home games against Baltimore. The two teams have gone over the total in 7 of their last 8 meetings at Pittsburgh. Baltimore did cover at Pittsburgh this year, however, in a 23-20 loss to the Steelers as 3.5-point dogs.
