Jets Steelers Odds: Spread, Moneyline, Total

When using the odds table above, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make. 

Wagering on the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A “plus” sign in front of the spread is the underdog, and a “minus” sign is the favorite. The Steelers would need at least a four-point win if you bet on Pittsburgh to cover the point spread (-3). A spread bet on the Jets would win if New York wins the game or loses by two points or fewer. When there is a flat number like this one (-3) a push comes into play if the Jets were to lose by three points.

Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.

The total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

JETS VS. STEELERS WEATHER REPORT

The weather isn’t expected to have much of an impact on this matchup, as the temperature is expected to settle in at 60 degrees by kickoff. There is a small chance for light rain, though models are showing it may be clear by kickoff on Sunday. 

Even so, you should be wary of allowing the potential weather to impact your handicap. Games with lots of rain and snow usually drive down totals but doesn’t always mean it will go Under. Sportsbooks obviously adjust their lines based on weather, so it’s up to the bettor to decide if the book adjusted the line enough.

JETS VS. STEELERS BETTING INSIGHTS

Why Jets Can Cover The Spread

Hesitant to pull the trigger on difficult throws and making minimal impact as a runner, Mitchell Trubisky looks like a poor bet to last much longer as Pittsburgh’s starting QB despite reports that HC Mike Tomlin will stay patient with the struggling veteran. The Jets will get QB Zach Wilson back from injury, to try putting a spark into this young offense. Jets HC Robert Saleh always has his team playing with maximum effort. It shouldn’t be difficult for the Jets to keep up with Pittsburgh. The Steelers rank bottom 10 in offense EPA, yards per play, yards per pass thus far in 2022. 

Why Steelers Can Cover The Spread

There are some major holes to pick from an offensive and defensive perspective when it comes to the Jets that Pittsburgh can take advantage of on Sunday. The Jets rank bottom five in defense DVOA, defense EPA, pass defense DVOA, Offense EPA, points per play, yards per pass. The Steelers are 12-3-1 against the spread in their last 16 games played in October and are 10-1 straight up in their last 11 games at home against the Jets. The Steelers can take advantage of the trenches in this matchup. Fourth-string LT Conor McDermott is slotted to play on quarterback Zach Wilson’s blindside following Mekhi Becton knee injury, Duane Brown shoulder injury, and George Fant’s placement on I.R. Fourth-round rookie Max Mitchell is New York’s starting right tackle. Pittsburgh ranks eighth in sacks.

Reasons To Bet The Over

Wilson’s pass-catcher corps is as explosive as any in the league. Elijah Moore is playing the most snaps among Jets wideouts, while Garrett Wilson is shaping up to be a productive first-round pick. Corey Davis has a stable role in three wide receiver sets. Tyler Conklin has emerged over C.J. Uzomah as Gang Green’s primary tight end. Diontae Johnson is Pittsburgh’s lone bankable pass-catcher at this point, commanding a lofty 32% target share on Trubisky’s attempts. Including playoffs, Johnson has drawn double-digit targets in 16 of his last 20 appearances. This year’s Jets are allowing a tremendous amount of wide receiver production in 2022, surrendering the fourth-most yards per pass. Behind Johnson, TE Pat Freiermuth ranks second on the Steelers in targets (21), catches (11), yards (138). 

Reasons To Bet The Under

The Steelers also have gone under the game total in five of their last five home games. Ironically the Steelers have also gone under in five of their last five games against the Jets. New York’s play volume is bound to regress eventually. Joe Flacco’s Weeks 1-3 passing attempts are the most by any quarterback through three weeks of a season. The scoring should surely come down in this spot on the road for the Jets. The Steelers additionally rank eighth in red-zone defense thus far.

JETS VS. STEELERS PROPS: MATCHUPS TO WATCH

Steelers defensive line vs Jets offensive line: The Steelers can take advantage of the trenches in this matchup. Fourth-string LT Conor McDermott is slotted to play on quarterback Zach Wilson’s blindside following Mekhi Becton knee injury, Duane Brown shoulder injury, and George Fant’s placement on I.R. Fourth-round rookie Max Mitchell is New York’s starting right tackle. Pittsburgh ranks eighth in sacks.

Breece Hall vs Steelers defense: Breece Hall made a notable move atop New York’s backfield in Week 3’s loss to Cincinnati, out-snapping Michael Carter 42 to 36 and out-touching Carter 14 to 12. The Jets traded up to select Hall 36th overall in this year’s draft. The Jets clearly envision Hall as their lead back of the imminent future. Hall is going up against a Steelers defense that yielded the most rushing yards per game to opposing running backs in 2021.

  • Hall rushing prop: O/U / ()

FINAL THOUGHTS

Not too many people will take the Steelers with the three points, but Pittsburgh has shown us they can play even against some of the elite teams. With the Jets having Zach Wilson start for the first time in 2022, I believe the Steelers take care of business at home and cover the three points. Best of luck betting Jets Steelers odds.
