NFL odds Week 11: Ravens vs. Steelers

SB Nation's OddsShark has the latest on the line for Sunday's Ravens vs. Steelers matchup, which has, unsurprisingly, changed a bunch since Ben Roethlisberger went down with an injury last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Steelers, playing at home, were initially the favorites, but the line "swung seven points in a few hours" on Wednesday.

That still only makes the Ravens 3.5-point favorites, which still seems overly generous to a very banged-up Steelers team that will be without its franchise quarterback. Backup Byron Leftwich will play instead, just as he did when Roethlisberger left the game against the Chiefs, and if Leftwich's performance last Sunday is any indication, the Steelers' offense will be a lot more pedestrian. It doesn't help that receiver Antonio Brown is unlikely to play, either.

That doesn't mean the Steelers are dead in the water, of course. The Ravens scored 55 points against the Raiders last week, but before that hadn't really been dominant on either side of the ball, despite their 6-2 record. But I'd still figure Baltimore ought to be a pretty heavy favorite this weekend.
