Monday Night Football betting odds for the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Washington Redskins opened at Washington -3.  Some of the wise guy outfits have brought this line down to -1.  Bookmaker.com had the line at -3 still heading into Monday afternoon.

Pittsburgh is 3-0 against Washington but only 1-2 Against The Spread.  All three of those games were played in Pittsburgh during the years 1997, 2000 and 2004.  Pittsburgh has been a dominating team throughout that period but comes into this matchup relatively even with the Redskins.

As good as Washington has played, they have not been blowing teams out at home.  Pittsburgh has also won a series of games on the road, albeit against all losing teams.

The Steelers are 1-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Monday games.  They are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss. 

The Redskins are 22-8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Sagarin Ratings suggest Washington should be a -2 ½ home favorite and this indicates that the line here is relatively accurate.

Some keys to victory as noted in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

To win, the Redskins must ...

1. Drill Ben, drill. The Redskins have only 10 sacks, but they will no doubt try to copy the game plan of the other NFC East teams.

2. Get Clinton to the (White) house. Portis has more runs of 20-plus yards than any other back in the league and has scored seven TDs.

3. Have Campbell be m-mmmm good. He has had two games in which he has completed more than 73 percent of his passes.

To win, the Steelers must ...

1. Knock the El out of Antwaan. The former Steelers receiver has completed both passes he has attempted this season.

2. Be the boss of Moss. The 5-foot-10 receiver already has three 100-yard receiving games, three more than the Steelers have managed.

3. Springs some big plays. WR Nate Washington has TD catches of 48, 50 and 65 yards and the Redskins will be without their top corner.Keys to victory.
