The oddsmakers over at Draftkings sportsbook have finally released their opening lines for the Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Week 14 matchup. This time, they’re the underdogs.


Spread: Ravens +1
Over/Under: 38
Moneyline: Steelers -115, Ravens -105

It seems Vegas is uncertain of the quarterback situation heading into Week 14, as a week prior, the Ravens were favored by 4.5-points on November 29. Traditionally, home teams get around a three-point boost, too, so it sounds like Vegas believes in Baltimore but the home boost for the Steelers will put it in their favor.

Taking a wider scope on this, let’s just take this for what it is. A Ravens vs. Steelers game will be close? You don’t say?! It’s kind of like all the other ones lately, looking at the last four games.

  • 13-16 (L)
  • 19-20 (L)
  • 14-19 (L)
  • 24-28 (L)

Close games define the AFC North, just as they define all other division matchups across the NFL. The one-point line makes sense regardless of whether the signal caller on Sunday for the Ravens is Lamar Jackson or Tyler Huntley.
