Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars Pick and Preview
NFL Betting Preview
Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2)
Sunday, 8:15 pm Eastern – NBC
SBG Global Opening Line: Jaguars - 4 , Total 36.5
One of the best games on Sunday should be in Jacksonville as the Jaguars host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars have owned the Steelers lately, winning the last four meetings between the two teams including last year’s playoff game. “We have some recent history with those guys,” Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin said this week. “They are a very good football team.”
SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Jaguars at Home.
Last year the Jaguars sacked Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger 11 times in the two games. Roethlisberger has been sacked 15 times already this season, most in the AFC. Last week the Steelers survived against Baltimore, winning 23-20 in overtime but lost rookie running back Rashard Mendenhall for the season with a fractured shoulder. Running back Willie Parker has been out with a knee sprain. “Injuries always happen at a bad time,” Tomlin said. “They’re part of the game. I’m not going to complain about them and go `Woe is me.’”
Jacksonville escaped with an overtime win of their own last week as they won 30-27 against Houston. Quarterback David Garrard had 236 yards passing and 41 yards rushing to lead the Jaguars. Sunday night’s game could be low scoring considering the Steelers have the second ranked defense in the NFL.
