Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Preview
The Pittsburgh Steelers come into this game 5-3-1 overall after getting the 16-16 tie last week against the Lions. In that tie game, Backup Quarterback Mason Rudolph filled in for Big Ben, who was in health protocol. Rudolph went went 30 of 50 for 242 yards for 1 touchdown and 1 interception. The latest reports today are saying that Roethlisberger will be cleared and you should see him start this Week 11 game.
Running back Najee Harris continues to be the star of the Steelers and he didn’t disappoint in Week 10 putting up 105 rushing yards. Harris should put up big numbers is this matchup, since he’ll be going up against this Chargers defense that’s currently the worst in the entire league. LA’s defense is giving up an average of 155 rushing yards per game.
The Chargers are the second-worst in the league when it comes to stopping teams on third downs, so the key for the Steelers to pull off the upset will be taking advantage of these two weaknesses that LA has on defense.
The bad news is that the Steelers offense on the road hasn’t been great this season so far and are only scoring an average of 18.3 points per game.
The good news is that their defense on the road this season is ranked 6th in the NFL, only giving up an average of 17.7 points per game.
Pittsburgh is 2-6 against the spread in their last 8 games and the total has gone under in 4 of the Steelers last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC.
Los Angeles Chargers Betting Preview
The LA Chargers need a win this week after losing three of their last four games including in Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings, 27-20. In that game, the Chargers only put up 82 yards of rushing and 171 yards in the air. If they want to beat these Steelers and covert that spread then both Quarterback Justin Herbert and running back Austin Ekeler will need to play to their potential.
The Steelers let running back D’Andre Swift put up 130 yards on the ground last week, so you should expect Ekeler to have a monster game. Even with LA struggling in all kinds of ways, they still sit 5-4 overall. They are definitely luckily that they’re in the AFC West where the Chiefs, Raiders and Broncos have also been really struggling.
At home this season, Los Angeles has the 8th best offense in the NFL that’s scoring an average of 27.2 points per game, but their defense hasn’t stepped up and currently giving up an average of 26 points per game.
