The Pittsburgh Steelers are traveling to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 4 the 2021 NFL regular season. While the Steelers won their opening game only to drop two straight, the Packers have done the opposite as they fell flat in Week 1 only to respond with a two-game winning streak. With two teams heading in opposite directions, it will be up to the Steelers to break both trends to get their season back on track.

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 oddsshark.com.

The opening line on the game was at +2.5 after the schedule was announced in May. This line moved to +6 before Week 3 and settled in at +7 on Monday. After the announcement on Tuesday that some players, especially T.J. Watt, will return to practice this week, the line moved back to +6.5 points.

Being the underdog on Sunday, the Steelers have a current moneyline of +250 to win the game straight up, which is the equivalent of 5/2 odds. So a $20 bet placed on the Steelers over the Packers would have a payout of $70 ($50 plus the original $20 bet). The Packers have a current moneyline of -300, or 1/3 odds. Therefore the same $20 bet placed on Green Bay to win straight up would have a payout of $26.67 ($6.67 plus the original $20 bet) .

According to Oddsshark.com, the Steelers are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games and are 5-2 straight up in their last 7 games played at Lambeau Field. The Steelers also have gone UNDER in 12 of their last 17 road games and have gone UNDER in 6 of their last 7 games against the NFC.

If looking at the futures bets, the Steelers odds to win the Super Bowl are 80/1 after being at 35/1 after Week 2. The Steelers odds to win the AFC Championship are now 40/1 odds. As for winning the AFC North, the Steelers are currently at 12/1 odds and are behind both the Ravens and the Browns both at 23/20 odds as well as the Bengals with 9/1 odds.
