Fans will get to watch one of the biggest football games of the weekend as the Patriots vs. Steelers live stream online and televised matchup arrives Sunday afternoon. Coming into the game, Pittsburgh has won eight-straight and will have the home field advantage. Tom Brady and New England are trying to bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins. The winning team will help their case for possibly securing the top seed in the AFC as the playoffs are quickly approaching. Here’s the latest game preview with the point spread, total, game time, TV channels, and how to watch the Patriots vs. Steelers live streaming online.
Despite being on the road against a red-hot Pittsburgh Steelers team, the visiting New England Patriots are currently listed as favorites. The Odds Shark NFL odds for this game indicate that most sportsbooks offer New England as two-point favorites for the spread and -135 to -140 on the moneyline. The Steelers are priced at +114 to +120 as home underdogs. For the over/under bettors, the points total is sitting at a consensus of 52.5 points for the complete game. The total has gone towards the “under” in seven of the last nine Patriots games, while it’s gone over in four of the Steelers’ last five games.
However, one trend to consider for those trying to pick this game is how successful Tom Brady and the Patriots have performed against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pats are 8-2 over their last 10 meetings with the Steelers. The last time the two squads faced off was in the AFC Championship Game way back in January of this year. As NFL fans know by now, New England won that game 36-17 to advance to the Super Bowl where they captured yet another title to add to their dynasty. That loss may not sting too much now for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers, but realizing how important home field is could drive them towards victory today.
Running back Le’Veon Bell only had six carries for 20 yards in that game as he was lost early in the first quarter with a groin injury. He’ll be on the field today and is currently second in the NFL behind rookie Kareem Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs for total rushing yards. Bell has 1105 on the season and is averaging 3.9 per carry. The team also has Antonio Brown leading the league in receiving yards with 1,509 total, and Roethlisberger at fourth among quarterbacks with total passing yards (3,744). Tom Brady ranks second with 3,865 but depending how today’s game goes, “Big Ben” may be able to pass Brady on the list.
