5* NFL OVER/UNDER GAME OF THE WEEK
St. Louis vs. Pittsburgh,
12/24/2011 13:00 EDT,
Score: 0 - 27
Total: -105/+34½ Under
Regardless if Ben Roethlisberger plays in this game, I really like the Rams and Steelers to go under the total of 34.5 set for this game. St Louis has continued to fight hard defensively, despite the offense doing little to nothing.
The Steelers focus coming into this game will be running the football against the leagues worst run defense. St Louis comes in giving up 153.4 ypg on the ground. By running the ball Pittsburgh will eat up a lot of the clock, and it will also keep their defense fresh.
Knowing that the offense might not provide much in this game, I look for the Steelers defense to take it upon themselves to make sure they win this game. The Rams have scored more than 13-points once in their last seven games. Just a few weeks back they went on the road and were shutout 26-0 by the Steelers.
The UNDER is 6-1 in Rams last 7 vs. a team with a winning record, 34-16-1 in Rams last 51 road games, and 7-3 in Steelers last 10 vs. a team with a losing record. BET THE UNDER 34.5!
