UNBELIEVABLE:Pittsburgh Steelers are looking forward for….

The Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7) go on the road to play the Baltimore Ravens (13-3) on Saturday, January 6 at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Pittsburgh is coming off a 30-23 win on New Year’s Eve on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. Baltimore, meanwhile, clinched the first seed in the AFC with their 56-19 win over the Miami Dolphins. Steelers On Brink Of Playoffs  Pittsburgh won’t know their playoff fate after their Week 18 game on Saturday, as there are five ways the Steelers make the playoffs:

Steelers win and a Colts-Texans tie     Steelers win and Buffalo loss     Steelers win and a Jaguars loss/tie     Steelers tie and Colts and Texans do not tie and Jaguars lose

(Even with a Steelers loss) Colts and Texans do not tie, Jaguars lose and Broncos win  The Steelers will be remaining with Mason Rudolph at quarterback who’s 37-for-54 for 567 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in three games, but two starts which he has won.

Pittsburgh’s offense has struggled this season averaging just 17.9 PPG which ranks 27th while averaging 204.3 passing yards per game and 115.9 rushing yards per game.

Defensively, the Steelers are allowing 19.6 PPG.  Pittsburgh’s running back Najee Harris is dealing with a knee injury.

Today’s Top Expert Picks from our Sponsors (Your content continues below) Ravens Resting Starters  With the top seed in the AFC locked up, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced quarterback Lamar Jackson and other starters will be resting on Saturday.

“You just kind of consider all things. There’s not really any one thing that goes into it,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

“Just all things considered, it seemed to be the right thing to do. You have conversations with Lamar [Jackson] and others, and you make the decision.”  With Jackson sitting, the Ravens will turn to Tyler Huntley who’s 206-for-314 for 1,811 yards, seven touchdowns, and seven interceptions in his career. This season, Huntley has thrown just nine passes but has thrown for two touchdowns. However, he is no stranger to starting games as he’s started eight regular season games and one playoff game.

Baltimore is currently averaging 29.6 PPG which ranks second while allowing 16.4 PPG which is the best in the NFL.  Tuesday’s Top Plays Today’s Top Plays   Tim “Money” Michael – 7-1-1 NBA Run Grab Tim’s Tuesday NBA Best Bet For Just $45 – CLICK HERE  Will Rogers – 10-2 NBA Run – Snatch up Will’s NBA Divisional Total Of The Year For Just $30 – CLICK HERE  Tom Macrina – 17-8 CBB Run – Snag Tom’s Tuesday Night CBB Best Bet For Just $29 – CLICK HERE  Brick Haus Sports – 14-2 NHL Run – Grab Brick’s Tuesday NHL 108 Best Bet For Just $29 – CLICK HERE Best Bets Full-Game Side Bet  Rating:  Although Baltimore will be resting Lamar Jackson and some other starters, Tyler Huntley has proven to be a capable quarterback and should be able to keep this game close. Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers have won their past two games with Mason Rudolph, the games are still close as the Steelers’ offense continues to struggle.

This Ravens defense should be able to limit the offense of Pittsburgh, while Baltimore will likely try to run the ball and control the clock to keep this game close.

Getting above a field goal is key, so as long as it stays above 3.5, take the Ravens and even sprinkle the moneyline here.

Take the Ravens at +3.5 -110.  Prediction: Ravens +3.5 -110 Full-Game Total Pick  Rating:  The under is also the way to go in Saturday’s game between the Ravens and Steelers. Both Baltimore and Pittsburgh have great defenses, while both offenses will likely run the ball quite often which will keep the clock running and speed up the game. With the Ravens’ backup offense in play, there will likely be some turnovers and fewer points than what we are used to seeing with Baltimore.

This season, Pittsburgh is 10-6 in hitting the under and on the road is 5-2.  Take the under here as this seems like a 17-14 type of game.  Prediction: Under 35 -110 Written By Cole Shelton , “Cole Shelton”  Cole Shelton graduated from Sheridan College in 2017 and while he was there, began enamored with sports betting.
