Packers at Steelers OddsShark Matchup Report

Pittsburgh Steelers

As the Steelers' extremely consistent defense continued to play well last Thursday, the offense had a breakout day. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 299 yards and four touchdowns with 144 of those yards and three of those touchdowns going to Antonio Brown.

The offense will be without breakout rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster this Sunday as he will be sidelined with a hamstring injury. Le'Veon Bell had nine catches in the win last week and could pick up some of the slack in Smith-Schuster's absence.

The Steelers have been sensational in their last 15 games as a home favorite with a 13-2 SU and 10-3-2 ATS record per the OddsShark NFL Database.

Green Bay Packers

Just one week after showing some signs of life in a 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears, the Packers hit a wall last Sunday against Baltimore in a 23-0 shutout loss. The team is 1-4 SU and ATS in five games without Aaron Rodgers and nothing about a matchup against one of the best defenses in the NFL suggests that things are likely to change this Sunday. Green Bay has lost each of its last four games on the road against the Steelers and are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against teams with winning records.

Sunday night's total is set at 43.5. The UNDER is 8-2 in Pittsburgh's last 10 games as a betting favorite.

This will be the first time since 2010 that the Packers have been a double-digit underdog. Green Bay is 0-6 SU and 2-3-1 ATS in its last six games as a double-digit dog, and the fate of this game will likely lie on the defense. The Packers won't be able to put up many points on this Steelers defense, so it will be up to their defense to prevent this game from getting out of hand.
