NFL Playoffs Betting –San Diego Chargers (8-8) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)

NFL betting on Sunday has the Pittsburgh Steelers favored at home against the San Diego Chargers in AFC Divisional playoff action.

It is a football betting rematch of a game just over a month ago where the Steelers came away with an 11-10 victory. "We're familiar with them. They're familiar with us," San Diego coach Norv Turner said.

NFL betting odds have Pittsburgh favored but the Chargers are one of the league’s hottest teams, having won five straight including last week’s overtime win against the Indianapolis Colts 23-17 in the Wild Card playoff round.  The Chargers definitely look like a much better team than they were back in November. "I believe we're a lot better team now than we were six weeks ago or eight weeks ago," Turner said.

NFL betting stats determine the first meeting between the two teams was weird in more ways than just the final score.  NFL betting stats demonstrate that Ben Roethlisberger passed for 308 yards, Willie Parker ran for 115 yards and Hines Ward had 124 yards receiving and yet the Steelers didn’t score a touchdown. The Steelers should have had a touchdown to end the game but the referees blew the call and Troy Polamalu’s touchdown was not allowed, costing football betting gamblers that took the Steelers the cover.

Pittsburgh finished the season winning six of their final seven games as NFL betting numbers display.  NFL playoffs betting stats register that since 1994, the Steelers are 5-0 in their first playoff game after a bye. Football betting history indicates that this is the fourth time in the past three seasons the Steelers and Chargers will have played.  The Steelers are 6-1 against San Diego since 1995 as NFL betting stats have it.
