Sports Betting – Steelers at Packers NFL Odds

December 15th, 2009 by Leave a comment Go to comments

The world of sports betting know that the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-7) are still a good football team. Maybe. After losingon the NFL Odds five games in a row it would be very easy for this team to throw in the towel. But with an outside shot of still making the playoffs expect this team to come out fighting against the Packers (9-4) in week 15.

Green Bay is very tough opponent and probably the best team in football that doesn’t lead its division. On offense Aaron Rodgers is a top five QB in the sports betting and the run game has proven surprisingly resilient. On defense the Pack got off to a slow start but it’s got its new schemes down pat and has been highly effective over the past month.

For the Steelers, nothing has been effective lately. The team hasn’t won a game since the first week of November. Worse still, it’s given up fourth quarter leads in almost all of its losses.

Still, this team is the defending world champ and favored in the NFL Odds by 1 point in this matchup. And the odds of a team with this talented of a roster losing six games in a row seems astronomical.

Big Ben should come out firing and the defense will do what it always does: stop the opponent but give up big plays over the top. The Packers will put some point on the board the Steelers will put up more. Pick the Steelers to win this sportbetting odds showdown in Pittsburgh in what should be one of the better games of the week.
