Week 15 Odds: Steelers vs Broncos

Tomlin Ben Steelers

Two of the hottest teams in the AFC meet in Steeltown when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Denver Broncos.  Both teams are entering the stretch run hot, but the favorite is just 2-5 ATS in the past seven games between the Steelers and Broncos.

Shark Bites
  • The Broncos are 5-2 SU in their last seven games at Heinz Field.
  • The Steelers are 9-0 SU and ATS in their past nine games in December.
  • The OVER is 11-1 in the Broncos’ past 12 games against the AFC North.

Brock Osweiler was pretty much fed to the wolves in the Broncos’ last game. Despite being just Osweiler’s fifth career start, he was forced to throw 51 times and ended up being sacked five times by Khalil Mack. Defensively, the Broncos are still the best in the NFL and have allowed a combined 57 points in their last four outings.

The Steelers are 4-1 SU in their past five games thanks to an explosive offense that has averaged 35.2 points during that span. Pittsburgh’s aerial attack has been the leading cause for this offensive boom as the passing game has accounted for nearly 80 percent of their offensive yardage.

Betting fans looking to back the visiting Denver Broncos in this one found them as 6.5-point underdogs earlier in the week, while the total was settling in the neighborhood of 45 at shops such as Bovada.
