The Steelers Ravens spread has not moved off the number “3” since opening Baltimore -3.  The Ravens were getting just over 60 percent of the backing on the spread while the money line action was fairly even.  The total 39 was also getting relatively balanced betting action.

While Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has said he will play after suffering a broken bone in his right foot, it remains to be seen how effective he will be.  Roethlisberger wore a protective shoe during practice on Friday.

Baltimore and Pittsburgh both sit atop the AFC North division with 8-3 records.  Only the Jets and Patriots have been records in the AFC.
