Pittsburgh vs Tennessee betting odds preview

A couple of teams with hopes of returning to the playoffs this season begin their 2013 campaigns when the Pittsburgh Steelers, after going 8-8 last year, host the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field (1 pm ET, CBS).

With a week to go before this game kicks off the Steelers were favored by seven points over the visiting Titans, who are coming off a 6-10 season.

Tennessee has trended heavily UNDER (6-1 past 7 season openers) and even moreso when those openers happen on the road (7-1).

Pittsburgh on the other hand has played 6 straight September OVERs, while slumping overall to just a 3-8 ATS mark as a favorite lately.
