Pittsburgh Steelers Face the Atlanta Falcons: Week 15 NFL Odds and Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers

vs

Atlanta Falcons
Sunday, December 14, 2014 1:00 PM ET
Georgia Dome

 

The 5-8 Falcons have won three of their last five games, 2-3 ATS, and enter Week 15 in first place in the underachieving NFC South.

The OVER has prevailed in Atlanta's last three after six straight wins for the UNDER and it could be a good bet to go OVER again. These teams rank last and third last in yards per play defense, meaning they give up lots of yards on each play.

Atlanta has just one win at home in their last three, but are 4-2 ATS in six home games this season.

The 8-5 Steelers will be gunning for a third straight road win following a 42-21 victory in Cincinnati in Week 14. That win ended the Steelers' three-game ATS losing streak and vaulted them into the top AFC Wild Card spot. The OVER is a strong 6-1 in the Steelers' last seven games with Pittsburgh averaging 31.1 points per game during that stretch.
