Ravens at Steelers OddsShark Matchup Report

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers, second in the Super Bowl 52 odds, appeared to be on their way to their first loss since Oct. 8 when they went down 17-0 in the second quarter against the Bengals on Monday. Instead, Pittsburgh tied the game in the fourth quarter and kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired to outscore Cincinnati 13-0 in the fourth quarter and come away with a 23-20 victory.

It continued Pittsburgh's flair for the dramatics over this winning streak, as five of the seven games have been decided by six points or fewer, and three of the last four have been decided by a field goal.

In their last 15 home games against division rivals, the Steelers are 12-3 SU and 9-4-2 ATS including a current run of 5-0 SU and 3-1-1 ATS, per the OddsShark NFL Database.

Baltimore Ravens

For the second time in a span of five games, the once-anemic Baltimore offense managed to put up 40 points on an opponent, this time in a 44-20 win at home over the Detroit Lions. The win brought Baltimore's record over the team's last five games to 4-1 SU and 3-1-1 ATS and its overall record to 7-5 SU and 6-5-1 ATS.

This record puts the Ravens firmly in control of their own destiny with sole possession of the sixth seed in the AFC Wild Card standings heading into Week 14. Baltimore is 10-2 ATS in its last 12 games against division rivals.

Sunday night's total is set at 44 points. The UNDER is 4-1 in the last five games between these two teams.

The last time these two teams met, Baltimore got stomped 26-9 on its home field. The Ravens would love to return the favor in what should be a much closer game this time around.
