The Pittsburgh Steelers are a -6 ½ home favorite across the board after opening at -5.  The line at some books initially dropped to -4 ½. 

From Sports Illustrated:

You may recall the Tennessee Titans are the last team to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, stomping the eventual Super Bowl champs -- and their Terrible Towels -- 31-14 in a Week 16 showdown that wrapped up the AFC's top seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs for coach Jeff Fisher's club.

But there's a flip side to that fun fact, and it still stings to admit it in Tennessee. The Titans haven't won a game since that beatdown of the Steelers on Dec. 21, and the juxtaposition of how these two elite teams fared after that highly emotional game couldn't be starker.

"We've had a bad taste in our mouth ever since,'' Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said. "Even though we went 13-3 last season, nobody feels like we accomplished anything. For us personally, our fans, our coaches, the way the season ended last year was a tremendous disappointment and a tremendous letdown.''

While much of the betting action was going the Steelers way, this was not as lopsided a game as most.  Nearly 65 percent of the action was on Pittsburgh and the spread.  70 percent of the money line action was going to the Steelers as well. 

This line is not likely to move past 7.  Bet it now at Sportsbetting.com.
