Although the teams are close in proximity in Pennsylvania they rarely meet in the regular season. This is only the seventh meeting in the last 20 years according to NFL betting stats.
NFL football betting stats show that Pittsburgh and Philadelphia have met only twice since 2000. Both games were in Pittsburgh and the teams split the two meetings according to NFL football betting history. The last time they played was in 2004 as the Steelers routed the Eagles 27-3 according to NFL betting history. The game in 2000 saw the Eagles win 26-23 according to NFL football betting stats.
NFL football betting in this matchup should be exciting as both teams are considered Super Bowl contenders. NFL football betting experts see that the Steelers are led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Willie Parker while the Eagles rely upon quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook. Both teams were very impressive in Week 1 routs and NFL betting experts have upgraded their Super Bowl chances. The injury to New England quarterback Tom Brady may play a part as many NFL football betting experts believe a number of teams can compete for the title now that Brady is hurt.
The NFL betting matchup between the Eagles and Steelers should be one of the most popular in Week 3. Amazingly enough though it might not be the national TV game since Jacksonville and Indianapolis meet at the same time on Sunday in NFL football betting Week 3 action.
The defenses in this NFL football betting matchup could decide the outcome of the game. The Steelers and Eagles both look improved this season on defense and the winner of this NFL football betting matchup might be the team that slows the other offense down. With superstar quarterbacks and exciting running backs, it could come down to which defense makes the most stops. Isn’t that often the case though in NFL football betting? The team that gets the big stop on defense oftentimes is the winner in NFL football betting.
