Expecting the Steelers to bounce back off last week’s embarrassment va the Patriots. Pittsburgh is typically better off a loss – 16-9 ATS off an L since 2014 – and I think they have advantages on both sides of the ball here. Seattle’s offensive line ranked 31st last week in pass blocking efficiency and 5 of their 9 O lineman were on the injury report this week. Pittsburgh’s front 7 is very strong and should play much better than last week. I think Pitt overall was distracted and not mentally right vs New England after seeing Antonio Brown sign with them 24 hours before. Seattle just let Andy Dalton throw all over them (without AJ Green) and Big Ben usually bounces back from these type of games. The last time Pittsburgh lost by 30+ points was in Week 16. The following week they beat the Chiefs 43-14. Seattle is also 1-8 SU and ATS their last 9 road openers and didn’t cover by 8.3 ppg in those 9 games. Steelers bounceback today.
