Pittsburgh Steelers -1.0 . Total 43.0

TV: CBS

The Indianapolis Colts take their record of (5-2) on the road for a clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-4). The Colts enjoyed a win over the Broncos this past Sunday.  The Colts won 15-13, thanks to a game winning 51 yd field goal by Adam Vinatieri.  The Steelers enter this game on a short week, having beat the Dolphins 27-14 on Monday night. 

In the win over the Broncos, Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed 15 of 25 passes for 202 yds.  Marlon Mack led the rushing attack with 76 yds on 19 carries and a rushing score. Jack Doyle led the Colts in receptions with 4, while totaling 61 yds.  Vinatieri made up for his missed field goal and missed extra point, thanks to his 51 yd game winning field goal.  Vinatieri was 3 of 4 on field goals for the game.  The Colts out gained the Broncos 318 to 279, while committing just one turnover.

The Steelers fell behind early in the 1st quarter 14-0 and trialed at halftime 14-10.  The Steelers put up 17 points in the second half and kept the Dolphins scoreless, to keep the Dolphins winless on the season.  Mason Rudolph was 20 of 36 for 251 yds, 2 TD's and 1 pick. James Connor ripped off 145 yds rushing on 23 carries and found the end zone once.  Juju Smith-Schuster hit the 100 yd mark for the game, reeling in 5 catches for 103 yds and a score. The Steelers forced 4 Dolphin turnovers en route to the victory. 

Recent Betting Trends:

The Colts are 2-0-1 ATS as the away team.    

The Colts are 4-2-1 in all games this season.

The Colts are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games vs the Steelers.

The Steelers are 1-2 ATS as the home favorite.

The Steelers are 8-2 SU in the last 10 vs the Colts.

The under is 5-2 in Steelers games.

At this point, it is uncertain if Steelers running back James Connor will play against the Colts.  Connor suffered an injury in the win over the Dolphins. The Colts have a defense that is in the middle of the pack.  The Colts average the 5th most rushes per game, while the Steelers give up over 100 yds rushing per game.  With James Connor not 100% and may not play, I like the under here.  The under has been profitable when the Colts are on the road and the under is 5-2 this season for the Steelers.  Either team could win this game, so I am going to take the under.  Final score prediction, Colts win and the total goes under 21-20.
