Pittsburgh at Denver (-6.5)
Pittsburgh is banged up, no doubt about that. Pittsburgh has been banged up all year, maybe forever; it’s sort of their thing. Granted, they are in legitimate rough shape this week, how can you count them out?
The line opened at 5.5 and has moved a full point. Maybe someone knows something about Roethlisberger, but I’ve got a feeling a separated shoulder isn’t keeping him out of this one. The Steelers have a run game and defense that can force mistakes.
I don’t believe Pittsburgh in their current state is the better team, but I also don’t believe they are nearly a touchdown underdog either.
Pick: Pittsburgh +6.5
