Dolphins vs. Steelers 2013 odds: Pittsburgh slightly favored

Pittsburgh and Miami square off in a crucial game for the final AFC wild card spot.

The Miami Dolphins visit the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday afternoon, with both teams fighting desperately for the No. 6 seed in the AFC.

Coming into the contest, Pittsburgh is favored by three points with an over/under of 41, according to Oddsshark.com. This season, the Dolphins are 7-5 against the spread. The Steelers are 6-6 ATS.

Pittsburgh sustained a brutal loss on Thanksgiving night to the Baltimore Ravens when it failed to succeed on a 2-point conversion down 22-20. Now, at 5-7, the Steelers likely need to run the table over their final four games and then hope for a little help.

Miami is feeling good about itself after trouncing the New York Jets last week at MetLife Stadium. The Dolphins are tied with the Ravens for the final AFC playoff spot at 6-6, but lose the tiebreaker on head-to-head. With a victory over the Steelers, Miami can basically eliminate Pittsburgh from the playoff race with a victory.
