Ravens-Steelers Have a Penchant for Going UNDER Totals

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are both coming off disappointing losses last weekend and will look to right the ship in what’s perennially an exciting AFC North matchup. 

Xbet opened the Ravens as 2.5-point home underdogs with a total of 43.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Steelers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games after a loss.
  • The Ravens are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games at home.
  • The Steelers are 5-0 SU in their last five games against their division.

If you’re hesitant to back Baltimore right now, I don’t blame you. The Ravens got absolutely manhandled by the Jacksonville Jaguars, of all teams, in London by a score of 44-7. Baltimore allowed quarterback Blake Bortles to have the game of his life, as the signal-caller tossed four touchdown passes to finish with 244 yards on 20-of-31 passing in the win. 

Joe Flacco hasn’t been anything special in 2017, which doesn’t bode well as he faces a solid Steelers defensive unit. Flacco hasn’t thrown for more than 217 yards in a game this year and was pulled from the loss to the Jags after throwing two interceptions and completing just eight of 18 passes for a measly 28 yards. 

The UNDER tends to be a profitable wager when these teams collide, evidenced by the UNDER going 3-1 in the previous four clashes between the AFC North rivals. 

The Steelers offense hasn’t fully gotten off the ground yet in 2017, but it’s just a matter of time before the trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown starts lighting it up. That day could come Sunday against the suddenly weak-looking Ravens. 

If the Steelers do pull out a win, they’ll have to reverse a solid trend working in the Ravens’ favor. In Baltimore’s last 11 vs divisional foes, the Ravens are 10-1 ATS.
