GAME OF THE WEEK (NFL): MIKE'S TOP RATED WEEK 9 SIDE
Indianapolis vs. Pittsburgh,
11/03/2019 13:00 EDT,
Score: 24 - 26
Point Spread: +1/-115 Indianapolis
The 3-4 Pittsburgh Steelers are coming into this contest as winners of two in a row, but I think we can all agree that it's not all that impressive to beat up on Miami and the LA Chargers.
Here they'll face a very tough opponent in the 5-2 Indianapolis Colts who have won five of their last six and three in a row with quality wins over KC and Houston mixed in. The Colts have held opponents to just 16.3 ppg over a three-game stretch and the Steelers are not the greatest team moving the ball with backup QB Mason Rudolph at the helm. Additionally running back James Conner is banged up and at risk of missing this game.
Note that Pittsburgh has been outgained in all but two of its games (against Miami and Cincinnati), and often by triple-digits.
The Steelers will play on a relatively short week and are just 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game. Additionally, the Colts are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games while the Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
10* play on Indianapolis Colts.
