Just when you thought the Steelers vs. Bengals rivalry was enough to fill the physicality quota for the season, Pittsburgh now prepares for their other arch rivals in the Baltimore Ravens.

As the bitter rivals prepare for a prime time affair on Sunday Night Football at Heinz Field, there is plenty on the line for both teams. For the Steelers, a win would clinch their second straight AFC North crown, and a playoff spot in the process. However, a Ravens upset win would be huge for their hopes of claiming a wild card spot in the AFC Playoffs, while a loss would create a manic race for the final two spots of the playoff picture.

With that said, it is time to check in on who the NFL experts, who produce weekly NFL picks, are taking in this AFC North grudge match between these two rivals.

If you are looking for some websites who are ‘all-in’ for the Steelers, you have your choice. The folks at ESPN and even the haters at SB Nation all have the Steelers as their unanimous selection in this Week 14 game.

Want a website which is clinging to the Ravens pulling off the victory? I guess CBS Sports is your place to be, but only one expert there, and it is Baltimore homer Jason La Confora, who is taking Baltimore to go into Heinz Field and give the team a huge statement win.

These are only a few websites who make picks on a weekly basis, but there are a ton of websites who have experts give their opinions on the winners of every game on the NFL slate. What about all those other sites?

This is where our friends at NFL Pick Watch come in to lend a hand. NFL Pick Watch, which takes all expert picks across the internet and puts them into an easy-to-read chart, sees the Steelers as heavy favorites in this game. In fact, according to NFL Pick Watch, 94-percent of experts are taking the Steelers this Sunday night.

Las Vegas likes the Steelers, NFL experts like Pittsburgh too, but if one thing has been proven throughout these contentious games, it is how whenever the Steelers and Ravens match up it is a close game.
