Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers – 12/29/19 NFL Pick, Odds & Prediction
The Pittsburgh Steelers go to Baltimore, Maryland to take on the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday at the M&T Bank Stadium. The Pittsburgh Steelers are fighting for a chance at the playoffs, as they will take the last spot in the AFC playoff if they’re able to beat the Baltimore Ravens.
The Steelers have been exceptional on defense, as their offense cannot produce much with a fourth-string quarterback in Duck Hodges. The Steelers gave quarterback Lamar Jackson his worst game of the season when they faced off earlier in the season. However, Lamar Jackson is much better now that he has a full season under his belt, and is maybe the most dangerous player in the NFL. If the Steelers want any chance of winning, they are going to need to get TJ Watt to Lamar Jackson and Minkah Fitzpatrick to intercept the football.
The Baltimore Ravens are coming off of a game against the Cleveland Browns. The Ravens attempt to better their record for playoff seeding and attempt to continue their terrific offense that ranks first in points per game.
The Baltimore Ravens have been the best team in the NFL, as the Ravens have the most explosive player in the league currently, Lamar Jackson. It’ll be interesting to see if the Baltimore Ravens decide to sit Lamar Jackson and give him some rest before the playoffs start, or if they choose to try to knock out their division rivals and get the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs.
Pittsburgh is 9-5 ATS this season
Over is 3-11 for the Steelers this season
Baltimore is 8-6 ATS this season
Over is 8-6 for the Ravens this season
I don’t think the Baltimore Ravens will care as much for this game as the Pittsburgh Steelers will. Also, with Lamar Jackson’s worst game being against Pittsburgh, the Steelers might have some answers against Jackson, and I don’t think that the Baltimore Ravens want to expose some of their weaknesses to the teams watching film before the playoffs. I think the Steelers win this one due to Lamar Jackson not playing. Final score prediction, Pittsburgh Steelers win 28-21.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Steelers compete in the National Football League (NFL), as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) North division. Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC.
In contrast with their status as perennial also-rans in the pre-merger NFL, where they were the oldest team never to win a league championship, the Steelers of the post-merger (modern) era are one of the most successful NFL franchises. Pittsburgh is tied with the New England Patriots for the most Super Bowl titles (6), and has both played in (16) and hosted more conference championship games (11) than any other NFL team. The Steelers have won 8 AFC championships, tied with the Denver Broncos, but behind the Patriots’ record 11 AFC championships. The Steelers share the record for second most Super Bowl appearances with the Broncos, and Dallas Cowboys (8). The Steelers lost their most recent championship appearance, Super Bowl XLV, on February 6, 2011.
The Steelers, whose history traces to a regional pro team that was established in the early 1920s, joined the NFL as the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 8, 1933, owned by Art Rooney and taking its original name from the baseball team of the same name, as was common practice for NFL teams at the time. To distinguish them from the baseball team, local media took to calling the football team the Rooneymen, an unofficial nickname which persisted for decades after the team adopted its current nickname. The ownership of the Steelers has remained within the Rooney family since its founding. Art’s son, Dan Rooney owned the team from 1988 until his death in 2017. Much control of the franchise has been given to Dan’s son Art Rooney II. The Steelers enjoy a large, widespread fanbase nicknamed Steeler Nation. The Steelers currently play their home games at Heinz Field on Pittsburgh’s North Side in the North Shore neighborhood, which also hosts the University of Pittsburgh Panthers. Built in 2001, the stadium replaced Three Rivers Stadium which hosted the Steelers for 31 seasons. Prior to Three Rivers, the Steelers had played their games in Pitt Stadium and Forbes Field.
