Ravens vs. Steelers: Week 4 NFL Lines & Spread Prediction

Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Two AFC North football betting rivals will clash in Pittsburgh this weekend, where the Baltimore Ravens will attempt to put an end to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ undefeated start to the season.

Few projected that head coach Mike Tomlin’s team would be so successful early on this year, particularly without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but has been the case as Pittsburgh has the chance now to run the table before their suspended signal caller makes his return following next week’s bye.

The Ravens on the other hand have been far from perfect, surviving a close game against the winless Cleveland Browns to improve to 2-1 one week after losing at Cincinnati.

A tough schedule and injuries on both sides of the ball have slowed a team considered to be a favorite to get to the Super Bowl, and it will be interesting to see if Baltimore can put together a second consecutive win this week when they play their third road game in four weeks.

Football Betting: What The Ravens Will Have To Do To Win

The Ravens continue to be a work in progress, but considering the injuries the team has incurred and the fact that they can move in to a tie for the division lead with a win this week is a testament to how deep they are. Baltimore ranks first against the pass, but has struggled moving and stopping the ball on the ground, which are two of Pittsburgh’s strengths.

Quarterback Joe Flacco will have to win this week’s battle of the signal caller’s for the Ravens to be successful, while Baltimore has to get its running game going after such a productive season last year.

Football Betting: What The Steelers Will Have To Do To Win

Regardless of who has been under center for Pittsburgh, this team has found a way to win. The silver lining that separates their perfect start from establishing themselves as a legitimate contender at this point is the team’s that they have faced, but even that is not enough to downgrade Pittsburgh’s performance so far.

The Atlanta Falcons and Tennessee Titans are both tied for top spot in their respective divisions with a combined 4-2 record, which means their only two losses this season came against the Steelers.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were 2-0 before taking on Pittsburgh, and despite tempered expectations the game was the second week in a row that the Steelers had to travel. The league’s third-ranked rushing units and third-ranked rush defense have been the staples in getting Pittsburgh one win away from entering the bye week perfect.

Football Betting: Outlook & Pick

Despite this being their third road game and third contest against a division opponent in as many weeks, the Ravens come in to this game favorites.

The Steelers may be more talented at all but one spot this week, and that should be enough to get them to the bye perfect.

Football Betting Pick: Ravens -1.5
