Joshua Dobbs QB vs. Kenny Pickett QB

Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs has completed 62.8% of his passes this season, but has struggled to move the chains consistently. While he has shown flashes of playmaking ability, Dobbs has been sacked 17 times behind Arizona’s porous offensive line. He’ll need to avoid Pittsburgh’s aggressive pass rush to give his offense a chance.

Meanwhile, Steelers rookie Kenny Pickett is coming off his best performance yet in last week’s win over the Colts. The first-round pick threw for 174 yards and 3 total touchdowns, displaying poise and leadership in crucial moments. Pickett will look to build off that outing at home against the Cardinals’ 23rd-ranked passing defense.

Struggling Ground Games Collide

The Cardinals have had major issues with their rushing attack, averaging a league-worst 81.7 rushing yards per game. James Conner is Arizona’s lead back when healthy, but he’s missed the last three games with an injury. In his absence, Eno Benjamin has filled in respectably. However, neither back has had much room behind an offensive line that’s allowing the most sacks in the NFL. The Cardinals will need marked improvement up front to get anything going on the ground.

Dynamic Steelers Receiving Duo

Pittsburgh boasts one of the most dangerous receiving duos in the league featuring breakout rookie George Pickens and second-year man Diontae Johnson. Pickens is averaging a robust 16.3 yards per catch while Johnson has a team-high 60 receptions. They present a challenging matchup for Arizona’s subpar pass defense that is allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 66.7% of their throws. If Kenny Pickett can get time in the pocket, expect him to take plenty of shots downfield to Pickens and Johnson against this vulnerable Cardinals secondary.

NFL Betting Odds: Pittsburgh Steelers -155, Over/Under 39.5

The oddsmakers have installed the Steelers as 2.5-point home favorites with the total set at just 39.5 points. Both numbers indicate expectations for a lower-scoring defensive battle between these inter-conference foes.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Picks

This game will likely come down to quarterback play, an area where Pittsburgh has a clear edge. Kenny Pickett is gaining confidence while Joshua Dobbs has been inconsistent all year guiding Arizona’s dysfunctional offense.

The Cardinals have also really struggled on the road, going 0-6 straight up this season away from home. Meanwhile, the Steelers have been strong at Acrisure Stadium, covering in four of their last five.

Based on these trends and analysis, Pittsburgh is the recommended play despite laying 2.5 points. Some of the best betting websites have this line right around 3, so it’s worth getting the hook on the key number. Pickett and the Steelers should do just enough against an inferior opponent.

Score Prediction: Steelers 23, Cardinals 13
