New York At Pittsburgh 2016 NFL Winning Predictions

Written by on October 7, 2016

There are a couple of different strategies to adopt when wagering on which team will be the eventual winner of the Super Bowl. There are some bettors who are confident right from the let go, and who get their wagers in before the start of the season. It’s a risky way to go, but you might just get your selection at some very favorable betting odds. The other way is to sit back for the opening few weeks of the season to see how things play out. Are the teams who were the early Super Bowl 51 betting odds favorites living up to the hype, or are they falling well short of expectations? One team that looks very much as advertised are the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 6-time champions are off to a 3-1 start, and have an offense that is beginning to look borderline unstoppable. This week, the Steelers will play host to the New York Jets, who have seen their season get off to a dismal 1-3 start. The Jets need something to kick start their season, and a win in the Steel City might just be the perfect tonic.

Why bet on the New York Jets

The New York Jets got their season off to a pretty decent start, beating Buffalo, and coming very close to recording a big win over the Cincinnati Bengals. It has been all downhill from there, though, as they have lost their last two games, and have only managed to put 20 points on the board in the process. On the positive side of things, the Jets have been magnificent against the run, and have yet to give up a 100-yard game this season. The flipside of that, though, is that their secondary has been getting shelled, routinely giving up the big plays, which is not what you want to do against an explosive Steelers offense. The Jets have a 2-0 record against the AFC North in the last couple of seasons, so there is hope.

Why bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers

The depth that the Steelers have on offense has been in evidence through the opening 4 weeks of the season. Despite being without Martavis Bryant for the year, and Le’Veon Bell for the first 3 games, Pittsburgh still managed to put 108 points on the board. That number is all the more impressive when you see that they only managed 3 points against the Eagles in Week 3. This is a team that can hurt you in a lot of different ways, and while the defense has given up a lot of yards through the air, you need to look at the number of passing attempts made by the opposition. These are generally teams forced to throw the ball because they are so far behind.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Le’Veon Bell returned from suspension last week and delivered 144 yards in 18 carries versus the Chiefs. He may have a tougher time against the Jets, but the Steelers have so many weapons to choose from, it hardly matters.
