Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens betting preview

The Pittsburgh Steelers will need as many breaks as possible to reach the playoffs and they may be getting one when they host the Baltimore Ravens at 1 p.m. Sunday at Acrisure Stadium. PHN readers can cash in on the DraftKings promo exclusive and Steelers bets, too.

Before we get to the Steelers bets, there are two DraftKings offers:

Easy money — Bet $5, and if either QB throws for one yard, you win $150 guaranteed.

The Ravens have listed Lamar Jackson as doubtful with a knee injury. Tyler Huntley would start in his place.

Huntley has made just four starts in his NFL career. The Ravens are 1-3 in those games.

While the Ravens (8-4) are tied with the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North lead, the Steelers (5-7) are tied with the Cleveland Browns for third place. Despite winning back-to-back games for the first time all season, the Pittsburgh Steelers are two games behind the New York Jets (7-5) for the seventh and final playoff spot in the AFC.

Here are the Steelers odds and lines vs. Ravens at DraftKings:

Spread: Steelers -2 (-110), Ravens +2 (-110)

Moneyline: Steelers -130, Ravens +110

Over/Under: 37 O (-110), U (-110)

Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Preview

Huntley rallied the Ravens to a 10-9 victory over the Denver Broncos last week after replacing Jackson. Huntley’s 2-yard touchdown run with 28 seconds left capped a 16-play, 91-yard drive.

Huntley completed 27 of 32 passes for 187 yards and was intercepted once. He also rushed for a team-high 41 yards on 10 carries.

In last year’s regular-season finale, Huntley started against the Steelers in Baltimore as the Ravens rested their regulars in anticipation of the postseason. The Steelers won 16-13 and got some help to make the playoffs.

The Steelers held Huntley to 16-of-31 passing and 141 yards while intercepting him twice. However, he had 72 rushing yards in 12 attempts.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, though, are just 24th in the NFL in total defense this season and 28th in passing defense.

The Ravens will be getting their first look at Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett as the teams are meeting for the first time this season.

Pickett continued his steady if unspectacular play last week in the Steelers’ 19-16 victory over the Falcons in Atlanta. He had a 16-of-28 day for 197 yards and one touchdown.

It was Pickett’s fourth straight game without being picked off after throwing eight interceptions in his first five games. He also was not sacked in a start for the first time in his brief career.

One thing worth watching is if Pickett and the Steelers will get George Pickens more involved in the offense. The rookie wide receiver had only one reception for two yards against the Falcons and pitched a fit on the sideline because he felt was not getting targeted enough.

Pickens has just 11 catches on 21 targets over the last five games. In the previous four games, he had 21 catches and 27 targets.

Overall, Pickens has 37 receptions for 512 yards and two touchdowns. He ranks third on the team in both receptions and receiving yards behind Diontae Johnson (61, 565) and tight end Pat Freiermuth (50, 597).

Perhaps Pickens will get more opportunities against a Ravens defense that is second in the NFL against the run but 25th against the pass.

Steelers-Ravens games are traditionally close, and the outcome could come down to the kickers. The Steelers activated Chris Boswell from injured reserve Saturday, but the Ravens’ Justin Tucker has made 50 of 52 field goal attempts against Pittsburgh in his career.

Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Prediction

While the Steelers held Huntley in check last season, he’ll be running the Ravens’ first-team offense this time around. Look for the mobile Huntley to give Steelers’ suspect defense problems in a small upset in what could be a higher-scoring game than expected.
