The Baltimore Ravens are hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers in NFL Football action on Sunday. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on CBS. The NFL Odds for the game have the Ravens favored to pick up the win.
NFL Odds Ravens -2.5 Total: 43 points
The number here is indicative of Ben Roethlisberger not starting today for the Steelers. Reportedly the Steelers are going to decide Sunday morning between Big Ben and Mike Tomlin on the quarterback’s availability. Pittsburgh should be fine whether he plays or not, especially moving forward.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is completing 61 percent of his passes but he’s got one more interception than touchdown on the year. That’s obviously not a great ratio, especially for a team in the Ravens that throws the football as much as they do. His favorite two targets have been Mike Wallace (35 catches) and Dennis Pitta (38) but they’ve combined for only three touchdowns.
The Ravens have dropped four straight overall and it’s tough to really determine how good they are this season. The wins in the opening three weeks came over Buffalo, Cleveland and Jacksonville. The Steelers have dropped two in a row, but they remain atop the AFC North standings with a record of 4-3.
Pittsburgh’s defense has allowed the fifth-fewest points in the league this season, Baltimore sits right in front of them. With both teams dealing with some injuries and the uncertainty of Roethlisberger playing as he is a legitimate “game-time decision” look for the defenses to be big factors here.
