NFL Week 4: Steelers vs Packers Game Odds & Info
Why bet on Pittsburgh versus Green Bay?
The Bengals upset the Steelers on the moneyline last week. But it makes sense how that could happen. First, Cincinnati versus Pittsburgh is a rivalry game. Second, T.J. Watt, the Steelers’ best defender, didn’t play. Watt should play this Sunday. If he does, Pittsburgh’s defense will make life hard for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense.

Why bet on Green Bay versus Pittsburgh?
It took Green Bay a couple of games, but the Packers are finally back to playing Green Bay football. Beating the San Francisco 49ers on the road is a big deal. Rodgers orchestrated a final second game winning drive that ended in a Mason Crosby field goal. Also, cornerback Kevin King could return to the field for this.

Pittsburgh Steelers versus Green Bay Packers Final Betting Prediction
The Steelers played a fantastic first game when beating the Buffalo Bills 23-16. But since upsetting Buffalo on the moneyline, Pittsburgh has turned into a bad football team.
The Las Vegas Raiders upset the Steelers 26-17 in NFL Week 2. Last Sunday, Pittsburgh failed to score more than 10 points in a terrible 24-10 loss to the rival Bengals.
New Orleans trounced Green Bay in the Packers first game. But since then, Rodgers and the Pack have rolled. GB dominated Detroit 35-17. The Pack played close to perfect football in the 30-28 road win against the 49ers.
Even if Watt plays, the Steelers will have trouble containing Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, Davante Adams and the rest of the Packers’ skill players. More importantly, Pittsburgh can’t rush the football and can’t score enough to keep up. Packers win and cover.
