NFL Week 8 Pick and Preview — Pittsburgh Steelers at Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions

Pittsburgh and Detroit Look for Solid Showing

Are the Pittsburgh Steelers the best team in the NFL? They’ve looked very good this year. They’ve got a tough test coming up Sunday night when they visit the Detroit Lions. The Lions are coming off the bye week.

Pittsburgh is a 3-point road favorite at press time with a total of 45.5. NBC has the coverage beginning at 8:30 PM ET.

The Steelers have experienced some setbacks in their two losses to Chicago (+7.5 at home) and Jacksonville (+8 away). Otherwise, they’ve played quality football on both sides of the field, overcoming issues like RB Le’Veon Bell’s training camp holdout and injuries on the offensive line.

The Under was on a 6-0 winning streak before the Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 29-14 last week (Over 40.5).

Detroit got off to a quick start this year, but things have been unravelling since their offensive line got smashed by injuries in September. Tackle Greg Robinson (ankle) joined the list two weeks ago and wasn’t active during the open portion of Monday’s practice session; right guard TJ Lang (back) did practice after missing their Week 6 loss to New Orleans (–5 at home).

I think you will be safe taking the Over 45.5 on the BetAnySports Line.
