Event: (479) Pittsburgh Steelers -6 at (480) New York Giants (o/u 45.5)
Date/Time: Monday, September 14 at 7:15 p.m. EDT

It’s hard to understate the obstacles that New York will face this season. New head coach Joe Judge was never a coordinator at the college or pro level, and now he’s running an NFL team without the benefit of any preseason games. The starting left tackle is a rookie and their starting center has never played the position before. That is A LOT to ask against an established organization like the Steelers.

It’s easy to forget because he missed all of last year, but Ben Roethlisberger was a legitimate MVP candidate in 2018. He threw for 5,129 yards (career high), completed 67-percent of his passes and threw 34 touchdown passes (career high). Rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool should be a nice compliment to JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson.

A few trends, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

  • Road favorites of 3.5-6.5 points went 25-14 against the spread last season.
  • The over went 10-6 in New York’s games last season, while the under went 12-4 in Pittsburgh’s games.
  • New York went 2-6 against the spread at home last year.
