The Steelers are on the verge of clinching another AFC North division title (three game lead on Baltimore), while the Packers are fighting week to week just to stay above the .500 mark, currently 5-5 through 10 games (4-6 ATS).

Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Dating back to 1933, it’s hard to believe the Steelers and Packers have only met 34 times, including an amazing Super Bowl back in 2011. The Packers won that Super Bowl, and also have the edge head to head all-time with a 19-15 record. Currently, the Steelers open up as 13.5 point favorites, the teams largest point spread of the season, and that is not good news for the Packers, as they are 0-4 ATS against teams with winning records.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers are coming off an embarrassing 23-0 loss at Lambeau Field to the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday afternoon. Quarterback Brett Hundley struggled once again, throwing three interceptions in the loss. So far in five appearances (four starts), Hundley has thrown just two touchdowns, against seven interceptions on the season, and the Packers are 1-3 when he is the starter. The Packers are currently ranked 20th in scoring (20.4) and 23rd in total yards (308.8). In the past five games, the team is 1-4 and the defence has allowed 118 points against for an average of 23 points against per game.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are not only one of the hottest teams in the AFC, winners of five straight games, but also a well-rested one, coming off a Thursday night win home to the Tennessee Titans (40-17). The Steelers defence picked off four interceptions in that game, the first time the team has done that since 1997. Through 11 weeks of the season, the Steelers are 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS. Receiver Antonio Brown is proving to be, not only the league’s best receiver, but a possible MVP candidate. His 1026 yards receiving leads the league in that category, 14.7 yards per catch is ranked third, and he also has six touchdowns.
