    The Baltimore Ravens will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC North showdown on Saturday in NFL Week 18. The Ravens (13-3) have already clinched the top seed in the AFC playoff bracket, while the Steelers (9-7) need a win and help to earn a postseason bid. Baltimore is expected to rest many key starters, including quarterback Lamar Jackson.

    Saturday's kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Pittsburgh is a three-point favorite in the latest Steelers vs. Ravens odds, while the over/under for total points is 34.5. Before you make any Steelers vs. Ravens picks of your own, you NEED to check out the NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
