Steelers Titans Betting – Battle Of Unbeaten Teams Goes Sunday In Tennessee

The Pittsburgh Steelers spent the offseason dealing with the scrutiny of having their starting quarterback suspended six games for a second sexual assault accusation in the last three years. With Roethlisberger out, the Steelers had a huge hole at an important spot, and it was a major storyline concerning how the team would perform without their franchise quarterback. An easy schedule and a reduced suspension gave Pittsburgh fans hope that if they could escape the first couple of weeks with a record close to .500, the Steelers would be able to compete for a playoff spot this year. Pittsburgh beat the Atlanta Falcons 14-9 week one, but will be in for an even tougher test this weekend when they travel to Tennessee to battle the Titans

Why To Bet On The Steelers?

It was no secret that the Steelers were going to rely heavily on their running game and defense to get through the first few games of the season while Roethlisberger sat. The real surprise came when the Falcons could do nothing to stop Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall, who ran 22 times for 120 yards and a touchdown. The Steelers will go back to the run against the Titans, and considering that Raiders’ running back Darren McFadden looked solid in their loss, the run game should challenge the Titans’ defense. The final score against Atlanta might be a little misleading, as quarterback Dennis Dixon was shaky early, and the Steelers missed a late field goal. If Pittsburgh picks up where they left off in the week one win, they could very well be 2-0 after week two.

Why To Bet On The Titans?

The Titans absolutely dominated the Raiders 38-13 week one, providing the exclamation mark for an opening week in which all but one team from the AFC South won, and that was the defending AFC-champion Indianapolis Colts, who lost to the Houston Texans. Tennessee has been nearly unstoppable since quarterback Vince Young took over for Kerry Collins last year, and are 7-2 since that point. Young threw for 154 yards and two touchdowns, but even more importantly did not make a crucial mistake and turn the ball over. Running backs Chris Johnson and Javon Ringer combined for a 6.9 yard per carry average, but will be tested more by a stronger Steelers’ defense.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Titans dominated the Raiders week one, but will face a much tougher run defense in the Steelers, who frustrated Michael Turner and the Atlanta running game last week. The key will be Tennessee’s ability to get after Dixon, and considering they got to Oakland’s Jason Campbell four times in week one, it will be difficult for the Steelers’ replacement quarterback to get away from oncoming pass rush unless the line can step up their betting on NFL play.
