Steelers Trying to Avoid Four Straight Losses with Cowboys Coming to Town

A month ago the Pittsburgh Steelers were 4-1 and looked like a serious Super Bowl threat, but after three consecutive losses they’ve begun to fall out of contention for one of the AFC’s top playoff spots. Things won’t get any easier for the Steelers on Sunday when they host the Dallas Cowboys — owners of the longest win streak in the NFL at seven.

Shark Bites
  • The Steelers are 7-2 SU in their last nine games after losing as a favorite.
  • Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for 3 or more TDs in his last six games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Cowboys' last eight games as underdog.

Pittsburgh backers presumed that a bye week and the return of a healthy Ben Roethlisberger would be the remedy to getting back on track, but the Steelers looked flat in a 21-14 loss to the Ravens in Week 9. They’ve also failed to cover the spread in three straight games — two of which they were the favorite in.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, have been printing money for their backers as their seven-game win streak includes seven consecutive covers. The Cowboys are 7-0-1 ATS on the season and bettors will be interested to know that the last time they won eight straight games was way back in 1993.

Taking a look at the total which opened as the highest on the Week 10 slate at 50, the teams have combined to go 5-11 O/U on the season and they’ve also combined to top the 50-point mark just three times this season.
