Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts Sunday Night Football Betting Odds

The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts Sunday Night Football betting odds opened at Steelers -10.5 as the road favorite with the line not moving as of Saturday, an indication that the oddsmakers and betting public believe the Colts to likely be the worst team in the league without Peyton Manning. 

Sportsbook.com Line & Total: Pittsburgh -10.5 & 39.5

Opening Line & Total: Pitt -10.5 & 38.5

Things won’t get any easier for the Peyton Manning-less Colts when the Steelers visit for Sunday Night Football.

After a disastrous Week 1, the Steelers shut down the Seahawks in Week 2, limiting them to 164 total yards in a 24-0 victory. Leading the Titans the last two seasons, Colts starter Kerry Collins has lost to Pittsburgh twice (1-1 ATS), throwing for 393 yards and turning it over three times in those games. The Colts were worn down by Cleveland’s physicality in Week 2, allowing 13 fourth-quarter points in a 27-19 loss. Collins is completing just 50.7% of his passes through two games this year, throwing for just 388 yards. The Steelers are 10-5 ATS as a favorite since the start of last season, including a perfect 5-0 ATS when favored by at least a touchdown during this span.

Pittsburgh got a scare last week when QB Ben Roethlisberger left with a knee injury, but all reports are saying his knee is fine to play on Sunday. Despite his injury, Roethlisberger still connected on 22-of-30 passes for 298 yards and a TD against Seattle. Mike Wallace has already been targeted 20 times this year, catching 16 of those balls thrown in his direction for 233 yards. On defense, the Steelers could be without DE Brett Keisel (knee) and DB Bryant McFadden (hamstring) who are both listed as questionable.

Indy’s offense has been brutal, averaging 260.5 total yards per game, which ranks fourth-worst in the NFL. Both touchdowns the offense produced have come in garbage time. Trailing 34-0 in Week 1 at Houston, Indy got in the end zone with 9:17 left. Last week the Colts scored a touchdown with 24 seconds remaining, but still lost to Cleveland 27-19. Collins is averaging a mere 5.6 passing yards per attempt, as only Reggie Wayne (172 rec. yds) has surpassed 75 receiving yards in the first two games this year. A bigger concern for the Colts could be stopping Pittsburgh’s rushing attack, possibly without LBs Gary Brackett (shoulder) and LB Ernie Sims (knee) who are both deemed questionable. Indianapolis doesn’t usually have the underdog role, but the Colts are 11-6 ATS when getting points since 2006.
