The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts on Monday Night Football. Here are the odds and our prediction for the game.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will try to avoid further embarrassment during the 2022 season on Monday Night. For the first time in his NFL coaching career, Mike Tomlin sits on a 3-7 record, and it’s possible that things only get worse against the 4-6-1 Indianapolis Colts in Week 12.
The Colts fired their offensive coordinator several weeks back before deciding they had seen enough from head coach, Frank Reich. The Jeff Saturday hiring was met with criticism, but his team beat the Raiders in his first game as Indy’s head coach and he nearly escaped with a win over the Eagles in Week 11.
Meanwhile, the Steelers are coming off their first 30-point game since Week 11 of the 2021 season, but we don’t expect that to be the trend. Here are the odds and our predictions this week for Steelers vs Colts on Monday Night Football:
Steelers vs Colts Odds Week 12
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-point underdogs against the Colts to begin Week 12, according to Fanduel Sportsbook. On a neutral playing field, this game is probably a pick’em, but the home-field advantage goes on Indianapolis here. Tomlin’s team has a moneyline of +126 and the over/under for this game is currently set at just 39.5 points.
Steelers vs Colts Prediction Week 12
Despite Pittsburgh’s recent 37-30 shootout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, it would be unwise to expect a high-scoring affair in this one. In fact, this could prove to be a downright slugfest. The Steelers offense shot up from 31st to 28th in the NFL in scoring since the bye week, but Pittsburgh and Indianapolis were the bottom two teams in this department just two weeks ago.
Though Kenny Pickett looks to be trending in the right direction, we aren’t predicting a dominant performance from the rookie in Week 12 against a stout defense that allows just 20 points per game on the season.
We do, however, believe that the Steelers are able to win this game under the lights. After their defense was humiliated in Week 11, T.J. Watt and company are going to turn up the intensity against the Colts. We like the Steelers moneyline this week as well as the under on the points.
