On this occasion, sportsbook action should be split. Pittsburgh’s loss to Washington may chase away prospective bets.

Pittsburgh Steelers Team Overview

Undefeated Pittsburgh was stunned by Washington Monday 23-17 as 5.5-point home chalk. And then under the total of 44 cashed in too. Pittsburgh is 11-1 straight up, 8-4 on the board, and 4-6 under the total. Overall, the Steelers rank 21st for total offense and 7th for scoring. Defensively the Steel Curtain ranks 1st for points allowed. Owing to skeptics did the Washington loss bring some “I told you so” commentary.

Pittsburgh’s ground game was manhandled against Washington. Cause by this the Washington defense could focus on the pass. With no rushing threat, Ben Roethlisberger was burdened. Of major concern is that the Steelers rank 29th in the NFL for rushing. Washington coach Ron Rivera cracked the code. To beat Pittsburgh, lock down the ground game. And then focus on the pass.
