Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Steelers’ 11-0 start is a distant memory. Pittsburgh has gone from being the center of “odds to remain undefeated” discussions, to struggling to secure the AFC North. The Steelers blew an enormous opportunity against the Bengals last week, losing 27-17 to a third-string quarterback. As such, Pittsburgh is a 1½ -point dog in its own house vs Indianapolis. The Colts are heating up, and most recently defeated the Texans for the second time in three weeks, winning 27-20. Indianapolis committed zero turnovers, and played consistently well on both sides of the ball. Colts’ QB Philip Rivers was efficient, connecting on 22-of-28 throws for 228 yards, including two TDs to WR Zach Pascal. Rookie RB Jonathan Taylor continued his stellar season, recording 83 yards on 16 carries while hitting paydirt in the process. Taylor has compiled 233 rushing yards and three touchdowns over his last two games, and is white hot lately. The Colts have won three in a row, and five of their previous six. Indianapolis is in contention for the AFC South title, and it can clinch a playoff berth with a win. Pittsburgh is 2-4 ATS over its previous six contests, and has looked worse every week since the loss against Washington. It’s almost like the Steelers’ confidence was zapped once the WFT knocked them off of the undefeated pedestal. Indianapolis is 5-2 ATS on the road in 2020, and is projecting to cover in Pittsburgh. Colts 26, Steelers 17
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
With Philip Rivers and T.Y. Hilton in sync, the Indianapolis Colts have better chances of winning the AFC South.
Also, rookie RB Jonathan Taylor has been sensational over the last three weeks, giving them the opportunity to expand the playbook in the red zone.
The Colts average 28.5 points per game, and the total has gone over in eight of their last 12 games against an opponent from the AFC.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost three games in a row. In each of those games, they scored 17 points or less.
RB James Conner and TE Eric Ebron remain questionable, but Benny Snell, Diontae Johnson, Juju Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool are ready to carry the load.
The Steelers are in a must-win situation. They average 26.1 points per game and the total has gone under in eight of their last ten games played in December.
