NFL Football Betting Lines for Wk 11’s Thursday Night GamePosted by: Mike Davis
Thursday night football makes his return this week with an enticing AFC matchup to keep NFL football betting coming back for more. To be specific, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be hosting the Tennessee Titans this Thursday night, giving us a matchup that will certainly play a hand in determining the playoff picture in 2017. Let’s take a look at what the sportsbook betting lines are predicting for this Thursday night football matchup.
Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers – Thursday, November 16th
When: 8:25 pm ET
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh
Stream: CBS Sports, NFL Game Pass
NFL Football Betting Odds:
Tennessee Titans +6 ½ (-109) 44 (-105)
Pittsburgh Steelers -6 ½ (-111) 44 (-115)
The Tennessee Titans ride into this Week 11 matchup flaunting a 6-3 record that ranks the franchise 1st in the AFC South. Technically, the Titans share a 6-3 record with the Jacksonville Jaguars – the current No. 2 in the division. But with Tennessee owning an early Week 2 win over the Jags, there’s no question as to who this division truly belongs to. That said, the Titans will need a strong finish to the 2017 NFL football betting season in order to solidify their standing at the top of the division. Luckily enough for Tennessee, they just happen to be riding a 4 game winning streak so keeping the good times rolling shouldn’t be too far out of the question. However, this Thursday’s game against the Steelers should help clarify whether or not this team is a playoff contender or even a conference contender. By the looks of it, the online sports betting odds are going Tennessee all the way.
The Steelers come into this Thursday night matchup sporting a 7-2 record that gives them the lead in the AFC North by a considerable amount. Right now the biggest threat Pittsburgh is facing in the division is the 4-5 Baltimore Ravens, not exactly something you would keep in mind if you were in the Steelers’ position. Below the Ravens are the 3-6 Cincinnati Bengals and the still winless 0-9 Cleveland Browns. With just 9 games under their belt in 2017, it’s pretty clear that the Steelers will be winning the AFC North in 2017.
Pittsburgh is coming off a 20-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts that marked the club’s 4th straight win. The Steelers are no strangers to this type of success as they are coming off a year in which they made it all the way to the conference game. Considering the current scope of the AFC North, last year’s conference will likely become a big talking point for the Black & Gold as the season drags on. Last season, the Steelers were eliminated from Super Bowl contention by the New England Patriots. Considering that the Steelers and Pats are currently tied at 7-2, a lot of attention is starting to revolve around these two teams. Given the recent drop the Chiefs have experienced, there’s no question that Pittsburgh and New England are the best teams in the AFC.
