Cardinals vs. Steelers, Week 13: Pick against the spread
Pittsburgh comes into this game as a 5.5-point favorite, as of Monday evening. The Steelers look like a new team after firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada, taking down the Cincinnati Bengals. Quarterback play has been a massive issue for the team, but they’ve found ways to win thanks to a stellar defense.
The Cardinals are now into their fourth week with Kyler Murray back and have gone 1-2 so far in that span, including two straight losses to end up here. On the season, Murray has 719 yards passing, good for 240 per game, just under 100 yards per game on the ground, five total touchdowns and two picks. He’s also been sacked nine times. The Steelers have 32 sacks this season, so expect that number to climb even more.
Still, despite a strong defense, the Pittsburgh offense is pretty weak. Expect a Steelers win, but it might be close.
