Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots NFL Betting Preview, Updated Odds
After the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons NFC Championship game (official betting preview), the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots game takes place. New England is -6 with a total almost evenly split between 49.5 and 50. The game opened at -6 -115 and 50.5. There is no clear-cut public consensus. Just 56 percent of bets are on New England. As Bob Warner of Lines-Maker.com reminds us, “Despite the public’s love of favorites, the deeper into the playoffs it goes in any sport, the more support they have for underdogs.” Also, 59 percent of bets are on the over, a smaller-than-usual majority for public bets, which lean heavily to overs.
Pittsburgh is 11-6 against the spread having gone under 12-6. This includes 6-3 and 7-2 respectively on the road. The Pats are a stunning 14-3 in the back pocket, but are also an under squad by a 10-7 road. However, they went over 5-4 home with a 7-2 spread mark. The Pats enter on a six-game spread winning streak. Get the famed Tailgate Party official gambling preview below:
