The Pittsburgh Steelers have a short week of preparation as they host the Detriot Lions coming off their bye week. With a four-game winning streak, the Steelers once again need to take care of business at home against an NFC opponent.

When it comes to the betting lines for Sunday’s game, the following information is the current consensus spread and over/under for the Steelers this week as reported by DraftKings Sportsbook.


Game Info: Week 10

Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers

Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021 at 1:00 PM

Betting line: -9

Over/under: 43.5

Last Regular Season Meeting: Steelers (W) 20-15 vs Lions

Win streak: 5 games PIT

Last 3 Meetings: PIT 3 - 0 DET

Last 10 Meetings: PIT 9 - 1 DET


The opening line on the game was at -7.5 after the schedule was announced in May. Since then, the line has remained relative steady before settling in at -9 ahead of the Steelers Monday night game and maintaining through Tuesday morning.

Being the favorite on Sunday, the Steelers have a current moneyline of -410 to win the game straight up, which is the equivalent of 10/41 odds. So a $20 bet placed on the Steelers over the Lions would have a payout of $24.88 ($4.88 plus the original $20 bet). The Lions have a current moneyline of +310, or 31/10 odds. Therefore the same $20 bet placed on Detroit to win straight up would have a payout of $82 ($62 plus the original $20 bet).

The Steelers are 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 games and are 3-5 against the spread in their last 8 games against Detroit. The Steelers also have gone UNDER in 5 of their last 8 games and have gone UNDER in 7 of their last 10 games against the NFC.

If looking at the futures bets at DraftKings.com, the Steelers odds to win the Super Bowl are 45/1 after Week 9. The Steelers odds to win the AFC Championship are now 22/1 odds. As for winning the AFC North, the Steelers are currently at 11/2 odds behind the Browns at 9/2 odds and the Ravens at 4/7 odds, and ahead of the Bengals with 7/1 odds.
