Jets Have Long History of Stinking in Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers are flying high these days while the 1-3 Jets might be on the verge of crashing. Coming off two straight losses in which they were outscored by a combined 31 points, they’ll head to the Steel City to play the Steelers. Going all the way back to 1981, the Jets are 1-7 SU in Pittsburgh, covering the spread in just two of those games.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Jets' last 15 games against the Steelers.
  • The Steelers are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games as home favorites.
  • The Jets are 7-21 SU in their last 28 games as road underdogs.

The Steelers are clicking at home this season at 2-0 SU and ATS, and have now won six in a row SU going back to last season. Ben Roethlisberger has torched defenses in those games and has recorded at least three TD passes in five consecutive home games, with an average of 336 passing yards during the streak. With the spread hovering at around seven points, it’s worth noting that six of Pittsburgh’s last eight wins at home were by eight points or more.

The Jets entered the season as a bit of a sleeper, but they’ve fallen flat the past two weeks. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a total buzz kill for Jets fans as he’s thrown nine — yes, NINE — interceptions the past two games.

The Jets defense could be in for another long day after allowing 1140 yards through the air in their first four games, bad enough for sixth-worst in the NFL. The Steelers are tied for the most receiving touchdowns in the league with 11.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
