Patriots vs Steelers Prediction

Pittsburgh’s passing game didn’t look good in their last game against Arizona. I’m not anticipating a sudden turnaround, which is why I’m favoring New England as 6-point underdogs.

Our model sees the over/under line for this matchup being to low and like the outlook of this game surpassing 30 points. The betting model spit out this game finishing with a combined 43 points.
