The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a 23-20 win against the Indianapolis Colts that was a much closer ball game than it should have been. Heading into the game against the Houston Texans, the Steelers find themselves opening up as three-point underdogs.
According to OddShark.com, the line has moved from Pittsburgh +3 to Pittsburgh +4 at some places. Clearly, oddsmakers are concerned with the mounting injuries on the Steelers' offensive line and their increasingly-lackluster rushing offense. The over/under for the game opened up at 45 1/2 and has dropped to 45 on most boards. Looks like Vegas is expecting a low-scoring game.
The Texans are coming off a tough loss, but the betting public clearly thinks the home team will cover the typical home field advantage of -3, pushing the Texans to a four-point favorite. The Steelers are 1-2 against the spread this year, the Texans 2-1.
