Mark Andrews Total Receiving Yards, O/U 60½
With 654 receiving yards, tight end Mark Andrews has been the Ravens’ only reliable target. For comparison, wide receiver Devin Duvernay is the second-leading receiver with only 378 yards. The Steelers will focus on taking away Baltimore’s biggest threat in the passing game. Tight ends average 50.8 yards per game against Pittsburgh.
Andrews has been under 55 receiving yards in four of his last five games against the Steelers. Plus, backup quarterback Tyler Huntley could limit the passing game even more. He has a career passer rating of 77.3, compared to Jackson at 96.7.
- Pick: Under 60½ (-105)
Kenny Pickett Total Interceptions, O/U ½
Betting on interceptions is often overlooked, but don’t make that mistake for this matchup. Baltimore’s ball-hawking secondary has 11 interceptions, which is the fifth-highest mark in the league. The Ravens also rank fourth with 1.7 takeaways per game.
Pittsburgh’s quarterback Kenny Pickett had early turnover woes with eight interceptions in his first five appearances. In the last four games, Pickett has zero interceptions. However, the Steelers’ last four opponents did not rank in the top 10 of takeaways per game.
Generating pressure can also force interceptions. The Ravens rank top-five in team sacks. The last time the Steelers faced a top-five pass rush, the Philadelphia Eagles totaled six sacks and 11 QB hits. Pickett threw an interception in that game. Sunday will be a rude awakening for the Steelers’ rookie QB.
- Pick: Over ½ (-105)
