NFL Betting Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Giants
Exciting game in the works for Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers coming off back to back wins travel to take on the New York Giants who are on a four game win streak. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Giants as -190 favorites giving up -3 points to the Steelers.
The New York Giants are on a roll this season with a 6-2 record giving them a comfortable hold on the NFC East. Their latest victory an impressive 29-24 win on the road where the offense wasn’t firing on all cylinders but the defense stepped up to put the game out of reach. Kicker Lawrence Tynes going 5-5 certainly helped as well.
Giants QB Eli Manning didn’t have a great game throwing just 15 completions on 29 attempts and an interception. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw had 22 carries for 78 yards while Andre Brown had three carries for 21 yards and a score. WR Rueben Randle led New York in receiving with 2 catches 68 yards. Hakeem Nicks had four catches for 46 yards, and Victor Cruz was mostly silent with two catches 23 yards.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have scratched their way back from a rough start putting together consecutive wins to push their record to 4-3 just one game behind the NFC North leaders the Baltimore Ravens. Their last game a convincing 27-12 victory at home over the Washington Redskins.
Against the Redskins QB Ben Roethlisberger displayed why he is still one of the best in the league throwing 24 completions on 33 attempts for 222 yards, and three touchdowns. RB Jonathan Dwyer provided a spark for the Steelers running game with 17 carries for 107 yard, one of which broke away for a large 34 yard gain.
The New York Giants are on fire and I look for them to continue their hots streak with a win at home against the Steelers. New York’s offense should play better than last week against Washington, and we seen how their defense can take over a game
This could be a close one so I am leaving the -3 alone and going with the juice of the money line -190 Giants over the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s defense has looked soft and aged at times this season, and are certainly not nearly the same defense without safety Troy Polamalu in the secondary.
