Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Free Pick
It’s “Big Ben” vs. Joe Flacco which could mean that this game has the potential to be a shootout but I expect a gameplan of Baltimore having dominated the game. Pittsburgh has an aging defense which was a major issue last season for the Steelers and it remains a concern after the unit was gouged repeatedly this season. The Pittsburgh defense has still been one of the worst units in the NFL this season and this matchup went poorly for Pittsburgh in week 2 with the Ravens winning 26-6 at home. John Harbaugh will keep the defense over Le’Veon Bell, he knows that Pitt offense won’t work if the rushing game can’t be established.
All three Baltimore losses have come by seven or fewer points and the Ravens look like the much more legit 5-3 team statistically when comparing these squads. The Ravens are 75 points superior in point-differential and Pittsburgh has played the second weakest schedule in the NFL at this point. John Harbaugh doesn’t take kindly to losing and his Ravens are on a 7-2-1 ATS the last 10 after a defeat. With Justin Forsett as a Workhorse the Ravens have won games, eating the clock and keeping his defense out of the field.
