Steelers Seven Point Favourites To Beat Titans on the Road

Published on November 17th, 2014 4:50 pm EST

This week's edition of Monday Night Football will see the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Tennessee to do battle with the Titans.

According to the bookmakers, the Pittsburgh Steelers are seven point favourites to win on the road:

Pittsburgh Steelers, -7, 1.95
Tennessee Titans, +7, 1.87

The straight up odds look like this:

Pittsburgh Steelers, 1.31
Tennessee Titans, 3.60

These odds mean that the Steelers have a 76.34% chance of winning the game straight up, while the Titans have just a 27.78% chance of winning.

The over/under line for the contest currently sits at 46 points. The big question is - what type of Steelers offense will we see tonight? The one that put up massive numbers against the Colts and Ravens or the one that stunk up the joint against the New York Jets?

The Tennessee Titans desperately need a victory on Monday night as they currently sit with a record of 2-7. The Titans started out the season with an inspiring 26-10 road victory against the Kansas City Chiefs but have since gone 1-7. The Titans are faced with two consecutive road games (Philadelphia, Houston) after tonight, which means that their season will essentially be over if they can't muster a win at home tonight.

Ben Roethlisberger is the key to tonight's game. Can the Titans control "Big Ben", who has passed for over 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns so far this season? If not, the Titans are in for a very long night.
