Why Bet on Titans versus Steelers
In NFL Week 8, Levis showed why so many NFL scouts and analysts had him going much higher in the Draft. The former Kentucky star torched the Atlanta Falcons defense when completing 65.5% of his passes for 238 yards and throwing 4 TD passes.
DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-6 targets for 128 yards. DeAndre caught 3 of Levis’s 4 TD passes. Derrick Henry caught 4 passes and rushed for 101 yards in the Titans’ 28-23 victory.

Why Bet on Steelers versus Titans
Although Kenny Pickett may or may not play, the backup is Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky, a former number one NFL Draft pick, has a ton of starting experience. Trubisky will play well if called upon.
Not only that, but the Steelers’ defense is good enough to contain Levis to Hopkins and to keep Derrick Henry from taking over the game. In addition, the matchup happens on Pittsburgh’s field. So the Steelers have a big edge.

Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers Final Betting Prediction
Losing Kenny Pickett isn’t ideal because although Trubisky has starter’s experience, he hasn’t been the starter this season and should have trouble against a decent Titans’ defense. Another Pittsburgh injury could have a more devastating impact.
The Steelers’ top secondary player, and best defender after T.J. Watt, suffered a hamstring injury in the loss against Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Without Fitzpatrick, the Steelers could find life difficult. Levis and Hopkins have already developed a great rapport and if you spend too much time worrying about the Titans’ passing attack, Tennessee’s rushing game will leave you in the dust.
The game can go either way. So right now, it makes sense to take the points on the Titans. If Pittsburgh wins, they’ll do so by no more than 3.
