Steelers vs. Colts 2022 NFL Week 12 Odds, Preview & Pick

Why Bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers?
Pittsburgh doesn’t rank better than twenty-second in any offensive category. The Steelers average 312.2 yards per game, ranking twenty-seventh.
Pittsburgh ranks twenty-third in passing yards per, 204.4, and twenty-second in rushing yards each game, 107.8. The Steelers score 17.8 each contest, ranking twenty-eighth in the league.
Rookie QB Kenny Pickett is completing over 65% of his passes, which is a terrific stat. But Kenny has thrown 3 TDs to 8 picks.
Pittsburgh wouldn’t have won 3 games if it wasn’t for their defense. The Steelers allow 24.5 points per game but that’s only because the offense never wins the field position battle.
Pittsburgh’s D ranks seventh in rushing yards allowed but dead last in the NFL in passing yards allowed. The Steelers have 14 takeaways this season, ranking tenth in the NFL.
Why Bet on the Indianapolis Colts?
As bad as Pittsburgh’s offense is, the Colts’ O is worse. Indy averages less than 16 points per game. The points per game average ranks thirty-first in the league.
Indianapolis has turned the ball over 19 times, making the Colts the worst team in the NFL at taking care of the pigskin. Even with Jonathan Taylor toting the ball, Indy manages just 98.7 rushing yards each game.
It’s a shame Indianapolis’ offense is so bad because the Colts’ D has been solid. Indy allows an average of 307.6 total yards per game, ranking fifth.
Opponents average 113.5 rushing yards, which ranks eleventh. Opponents pass for under 195 yards per game, ranking seventh. The Colts allow 20 points per game but Indy has just 10 takeaways and only Stephon Gilmore has a pick. Yannick Ngakoue leads the team with 6.5 sacks.

Steelers vs. Colts Expert Betting Predictions
The team that scores first might win the game. No, seriously. That’s how bad these offenses are.
So the first play to consider is backing under the total. It seems ridiculous that neither team will score enough to break 40, but both these teams not only have trouble moving the ball but also have decent defenses.
Because of their defense, the Steelers are the play. It’s difficult to see Indianapolis having success against Pittsburgh’s D while it’s possible Tomlin comes up with a strategy that leads to Pickett finding some success.
Also, taking the points in a game between two teams that don’t score many points is almost always a good move. Pittsburgh covers in the season’s worst Monday night matchup.
