While the Pittsburgh Steelers rebounded in impressive style last Sunday, it was a feat we could not match with the BTSC staff picks after both of us went 8-7 against the spread and the totals.
Although there are seven road favorites in Week 16, the Steelers are not one of them as 6.5-point underdogs for their matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Six games feature a spread of more than a touchdown, with four contests separated by double-digit lines.
Pittsburgh can clinch a division title with a win over New Orleans and a loss by the Baltimore Ravens (+4) when travelling to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday night. Even if the Ravens win, they can still guarantee themselves of at least a playoff berth in 2018 with a win on Sunday and a loss by both the Indianapolis Colts (-9.5) hosting the New York Giants and a loss by the Tennessee Titans (-10) at home against the Washington Redskins.
Given the relative quality of their opponents, the Steelers’ best chances of receiving some help this weekend rests with the Chargers. Go Bolts!
