Posted: Nov 28, 2022Last updated: Dec 2, 2022

The Pittsburgh Steelers will return to action from a short week this Sunday afternoon when they take on the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 4 at 1 p.m. ET.

The Falcons have one of the strongest rushing attacks in the league, while the Steelers are still trying to figure things out on offense.

Steelers vs Falcons Odds

As of Friday, Dec. 2, the Steelers are listed as 1-point favorites at Caesars Sportsbook. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise given the Falcons’ home-field advantage, but their underdog status shows that the oddsmakers believe the Steelers are the better team.

Take a look at the best Steelers odds and Falcons odds for the 2022 NFL season.

Steelers vs Falcons Implied Totals

Steelers 21.5, Falcons 20.5

The bookmakers have the Steelers barely edging out the Falcons in a low-scoring game. Both teams are projected to struggle to reach 20 points, which seems right considering their respective strengths and weaknesses.

Steelers vs Falcons Prediction

Steelers 20, Falcons 17

This isn’t looking like the most favorable matchup for the Falcons, even when considering Pittsburgh’s struggles this season. Ultimately, this one will come down to how effective Atlanta can be in the run game.

The Falcons have posted high marks this year when it comes to their rushing attack, ranking fifth in yards per attempt, third in total attempts, and ninth in touchdowns. On the other hand, they rank 31st in passing yards and attempts and 21st in touchdowns.

The Steelers seem capable of withstanding such an offense. Pittsburgh ranks dead-last in passing touchdowns allowed, but just fourth in rushing and sixth in yards per attempt.

Marcus Mariota and the Falcons will likely need to challenge the Steelers through the air, but seeing as how they’ve logged fewer than 200 yards passing on six occasions this year, it’ll be hard to rely on them to produce — even against this dismal defense.

It’ll be close, but I like the Steelers to prevail on the road in Atlanta.

Steelers vs Falcons Bet Tips

Here are a few Steelers vs Falcons betting trends to consider before making your bets:

  • Atlanta is 7-5 against the spread, while Pittsburgh is 5-5-1.
  • This is Pittsburgh’s first game this season as a road favorite.
  • The Falcons are 2-2 when Mariota throws for 2-plus touchdowns this season.

Steelers vs Falcons Best Bets

Steelers Moneyline (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Steelers should be able to move the ball relatively easily against the Falcons’ suspect passing defense, which should be enough for them to steal a win on the road. Look for Kenny Pickett to have one of his most complete games thus far.

Under 42 Points (-110) at Caesars

WAGER: 1 Unit

Neither one of these teams has been particularly strong on offense this season (especially the Steelers), and Pittsburgh’s defense should be able to limit a lot of the damage that we know Atlanta’s ground game can produce.
