The Seahawks lost their last game to the Rams on Thursday in Seattle but played a decent game. The Steelers played their second best game of the season, beating the Broncos in a game that wasn’t really ever close.
Pittsburgh lost another heartbreaker of their own, almost beating the Vikings in Minnesota as double-digit underdogs. The Steelers were extremely close to winning in 2 games this season and were competitive in games against the Packers and 49ers.
The Seahawks are ranked by Football Outsiders as 9th in the league heading into Week 6, while the Steelers are ranked 21st. PFF has a similar rating for overall team stats.
The Seahawks really could have won that last game against the Rams. They got off to a good start and there were a bunch of odd turnovers early. This came could have sailed over by halftime the way both teams were slinging the ball and getting chunks of yardage.
Russell Wilson got hurt and tried to play through it but couldn’t. Geno Smith was actually really good in his absence, leading the team to a 99-yard TD drive. He did throw an interception on the final drive to seal the game, however.
According to Football Outsiders, the Rams just barely outplayed the Seahawks in that game despite winning by 9. It was more of a field goal type game throughout. It makes me think the Rams aren’t as good as people think right now and the Seahawks are slightly better.
This Seattle team will have to go without Wilson at QB, but the good news is that Pittsburgh’s QB is not very good either. The line of +5 is a little disrespectful even with a backup under center.
Pittsburgh beat the Bills in the first game of the season and everyone thought they were going to be a surprisingly good team this year. Fast forward to Week 6 and we see the Steelers are mediocre at best, and bottom 10 at worst.
Pittsburgh has a good run defense and pass rush, so they’ll make things tough for Seattle’s QB. They’ll make the Seahawks beat them through the air, which will be tough without Wilson. These two teams are very alike at the moment.
Neither team can defend the pass very well and have a good pass rush. The Steelers have the big edge in run defense though, and homefield advantage.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Seattle Seahawks +5
The Seahawks are the bet in this matchup. As mentioned above these two teams are very similar. Neither will have a very good QB, neither are good in pass coverage, and both are decent at pass rushing.
The Steelers will have an edge stopping the run, but that just means Seattle will pass more. That’s probably worse for Pittsburgh since their coverage is so bad. Therefore, I believe this line shouldn’t be higher than +3.
