Online Football Betting – Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

Online football betting attention will be focused on New England on Sunday as the Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This late afternoon game on CBS television will attract a lot of gamblers looking to make an NFL bet.

Online football betting odds in past seasons would have seen the Patriots as solid home favorites against the Steelers in this matchup.  That is not the case this year as the Patriots are without injured quarterback Tom Brady.  New England is fighting for a playoff spot and is no longer invincible at home.  Online football betting history is going to favor the Patriots in this matchup but that has to be looked at cautiously since those numbers included Brady at quarterback.  The Patriots have won three of the last four home meetings against Pittsburgh according to online football betting numbers but this game on Sunday will be tough.  The Steelers may want a little revenge considering they have lost the last three meetings against New England including 34-13 last year.

Online football betting gamblers making an NFL bet on the total might normally lean to the over in this matchup based on history but again, this season is different.  The Steelers have the top ranked defense in the NFL according to online football betting stats and the New England offense is not what it was a year ago.  Online football betting history does show that four of the last five meetings between the two teams have gone over the total but that may not mean much in this game.  One online football betting trend that might apply is on the Steelers.  They are a solid under team on the road and an over team at home according to online football betting stats.  Since 2005 they have gone under the online football betting total more than 60% of the time on the road.  The Patriots, surprisingly enough, are a very good under team at home, and that was with Brady at quarterback.  They go under the total 60% of the time at home according to online football betting statistics.
