NFL Betting Online Odds:
The Ravens fly into this weekend’s action sporting a 2-1 record that ties them alongside the Cincinnati Bengals for the No.1 spot in the AFC North. Technically, since Baltimore lost to the Bengals 34-23 in Week 2, the Ravens are automatically No. 2 in the division. With that in mind, it’s clear the club could really use a divisional win this Sunday. However, since Baltimore is 0-3 in their last 3 matchups against Pittsburgh, it’s clear they’ll need a little help getting this win on Sunday. Luckily for the Ravens, they should be getting that help from the Steelers defense. Right now the Steelers are giving up a whopping 30.0 per game while Baltimore is only giving up 17.0. It should be stated that Baltimore hasn’t faced offensive as explosive as the ones Pittsburgh has faced. We’ll see how they handle Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense, who put up 29.3 per game, this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Joe Flacco (889 passing yards, 6 TD, 2 INT), Alex Collins (116 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and John Brown (222 receiving yards, 2 TD, 12 REC).
The Steelers enter this weekend’s AFC North battle sporting a 1-1-1 record. The franchise was able to pick up its first win of the 2018 NFL betting online season this past Monday night in Tampa Bay 30-27. That contest was being labeled as a must win matchup for the Steelers, given how terrible they fared in the first two weeks of the season. Ultimately that victory kept the Steelers from losing too much ground in the divisional race. On top of that, they now have an opportunity to climb the divisional ladder by taking care of Baltimore at home. Surprisingly, the Steelers are being pegged as the sportsbook favorites. This is likely a result of the high-level of competition they’ve faced this season coupled with how many weapons they have on offense.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (1,140 passing yards, 7 TD, 4 INT), James Conner (213 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (356 receiving yards, 1 TD, 27 REC).
