The line on this AFC Wildcard has shot up from Pittsburgh -8.5 all the way to -12 with Matt Moore expected to start in place of the still injured Ryan Tannehill. 

It’s not immediately clear why this line is into the double digits as Pittsburgh considers Moore a serious threat and the veteran quarterback has performed well up to this point, minus last week’s game against New England.

"Moore is a savvy veteran. He’s one of those backups that you really are concerned about because their experience belies their position," Stellers head coach Mike Tomlin said. "We’ve seen other guys like that in the past. But you also have to acknowledge that [coordinator] Clyde Christensen and company over there -- they do a great job of schematically aiding the quarterback position in terms of protecting it. Whether it’s pocket movement or spreading you out and quick passing, they do a nice job schematically, in terms of protecting the position as well."

Part of the reason for the significant line move is Pittsburgh’s heavy money line action with over 90 percent backing.  The action continues to be balanced on the spread.

The OVER is 10-1-1 in the Steelers last 12 playoff home games with a total here of 45.5.

As a favorite of 10 or more points, the Steelers are 11-25 Against The Spread since 1992.
