The Pittsburgh Steelers are listed as big road favorites this weekend after thrashing two AFC foes the last two weeks.
The Steelers opened as 7-point favorites for Sunday’s road game against the Miami Dolphins, according to VegasInsider.com. The early money appears to be on the Steelers, as Pittsburgh jumped to a 7.5-point favorite at most books.
The Steelers have been rolling since losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, 34-3. Pittsburgh destroyed the Kansas City Chiefs, 43-14, two weeks ago before dominating the New York Jets, 31-13, last weekend. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown nine touchdown passes the last two weeks.
The Dolphins have been one of the worst teams in the NFL and have lost their last two games by double-digit margins. Miami is 1-4 against the spread and hasn’t covered either of their two home games this season. The Steelers are 4-1 ATS and 1-1 on the road.
