Okay BetUS sports betting faithful, Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers look to remain unbeaten when they hit the road to take on the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars in a Week 11 pairing that looks like a sportsbook betting mismatch just waiting to happen.
Pittsburgh will look to take another step toward claiming the AFC North crown while Jacksonville is hoping to pull off the huge upset to snap a lengthy losing streak. With these AFC counterparts heading in polar opposite directions, let’s find out if the Steelers can cover the chalk against the Week 11 NFL odds to improve on their standing as one of the hottest ATS teams in the league.

Moneyline: Steelers -500 (9-0) | Jaguars +400 (1-8)
Pittsburgh jumped all over Cincinnati early to record an emphatic 36-10 smackdown over their AFC North division rivals in Week 10 as Roethlisberger tossed four TD passes while Diontae Johnso had six catches for 116 yards and one touchdown. Rookie wideout Chase Claypool added four receptions and a pair of touchdown catches.

Point Spread: Steelers -10½ (7-2) | Jaguars +10½ (4-5)
The Steelers covered the spread as 6.5-point home favorites last weekend to improve to a blistering 6-1 ATS over their last seven games. Jacksonville put up a great effort in their surprisingly close 24-20 road loss against Green Bay to cover the spread as a 9.5-point road dog to improve to 2-0 ATS over their last two games. I’m a little wary of the high, double-digit spread and I like the way rookie quarterback Jake Luton has looked in two starts, but these teams aren’t close in talent on either side of the ball and Pittsburgh’s defense can make even the most seasoned veteran signal-caller look pedestrian. The Steelers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite while Jacksonville has gone 2-5 ATS in its last seven games.
Pick: Pittsburgh to Cover
Okay NFL betting nation. Quick question. Will the Pittsburgh Steelers go undefeated in 2020?
Over/Under 46 points: Steelers (4-3-2) | Jaguars (5-4)
The Steelers have gone 4-2-2 O/U over their last eight games and Jacksonville has put at least 20 points on the board in three straight. The Over is 4-1 in the Jaguars last 5 games as a home underdog, but I don’t think the Jags are going to score enough points in this one to push the final score over the 46-point total in this one. I’m leaning toward the Under in this Week 11 pairing, but just barely.
Final Score: Pittsburgh 35 Jacksonville 10
Steelers at Jaguars Props Predictions
Pittsburgh should score early and often against a Jaguars defense that gives up a whopping 30.1 points per game. Conversely, the Jags will almost certainly struggle to find their way into the end zone with Bud Dupree and TJ Watt making life hell for Jake Luton.
Total TDs in the Game Over/Under 5½
Over 5½ TDs +125
Under 5½ TDs -150
I’ve got Pittsburgh scoring five touchdowns and the Jags finding their way into the end zone once. Add it up and the Over looks like the selection for this props odds wager. Besides, the +125 ‘Yes’ selection is value-packed in my eyes.
A Team to Score Three Unanswered Times
You can use any of today’s new-age online acronyms like…LOL…LMBO or even…WTF. Pittsburgh easily scores three consecutive times in this Week 11 matchup.
Steelers to win by 7-10 +450
Steelers to win by 11-13 +1000
Steelers to win by 18-21 +800
Steelers to win by 22 or more points +300
Clearly, oddsmakers are expecting this Week 11 meeting to be a blowout of epic proportions. While the 11-13 point win is offering a stunning +1000 return, i think the +600 selection here is the most likely outcome!
