The Steelers and Saints will be facing off this weekend in what’s widely considered the biggest game of the week. This match could very well end up as a preview to the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh is hot off a statement win against the New England Patriots, and could be ripe for a letdown. The Saints wiped out the Panthers on Monday Night Football, on their way to a 12-2 record. The Saints currently have an NFL-best record, and are favored to go all the way.
The Saints have recently finished off three straight games on the road, winning 2 of them. On their first game back at home, they are primed to perform well to close out the season. Their win here could cement their status as the top seed in the NFC.
The Saints are an excellent team after a win, where they have covered 9 times out of 11 in their run, including a perfect 4-0 current winning streak against the spread. They’re a perfect 6-0 straight up in the current streak against other AFC teams while covering two-third of them.
Trends show that the Saints are the smart pick here to cover.
My prediction: Take the New Orleans Saints -5.5
