The New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers have won a bunch of Super Bowls between the two of them of late, and they are going to meet in NFL betting action in a crucial tilt on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.
The Steelers are clearly the team in need of the win the more of these two squads. Of course, in the AFC, 4-3 doesn’t look all that bad, especially with the Baltimore Ravens looking all dinged up in the AFC North. Still, with just one win on the road this year, Pittsburgh has to figure out how to take some victories away from Heinz Field. The good news is that that one road triumph came in the team’s last trip to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers have won and covered two games in a row, outscoring the Bengals and the Washington Redskins 51-29 combined. Both games also stayed ‘under’ the ‘total’. Injuries remain a big concern for the Steelers. RB Isaac Redman and RB Rashard Mendenhall are both questionable with a knee and Achilles injury respectively, and C Maurkice Pouncey figures to sit again this week with a leg injury. S Troy Polamalu has already been ruled out with a calf problem. All of that is putting a ton of pressure on QB Ben Roethlisberger, who is doing a yeoman’s job this year of keeping this team going.
The Giants were left for dead at the start of the year when they were beaten by the Dallas Cowboys, but last week, they got their revenge by going into Big D and picking up the victory to improve to 6-1 over the course of the last seven games. QB Eli Manning has gotten the wins, but he is going to need to do more to lead this team to the Super Bowl again in all likelihood. The second generation quarterback has thrown for a bunch of yards this year with 2,301 through half of the season, but a 12/8 TD/INT ratio is suspect. When you look at the defensive numbers, those really aren’t all that impressive either, knowing that three of the last four teams have scored at least 23 against this squad. Still, it’s hard to nitpick, knowing that the team has scored four straight wins and has gone 4-1-1 ATS in its last six games. Remember though, that the Giants have been outdone by 228 total yards in their last two games combined.
The Giants won this game four years ago when these two met in the Steel City, coming up with a 21-14 triumph. It marked the third straight cover in this series for New York. That all comes to a close on Sunday though, as Big Ben and the Steelers are going to figure out some way to make the G-Men pay for their close calls that they have had in the last few weeks. Pittsburgh 21 – New York 20
