    Understanding Public and Money

    Read More

    Think of 'Public' as the percentage of people betting on each side and 'Money' as how much money is being bet. When there's a big difference between the 'Public' and 'Money' data, it usually means that the more serious bettors (referred to as 'Sharp Money') are favoring a particular side.

    Adam's Analysis:

    Do we need to go over Mike Tomlin’s history against rookie quarterbacks? There’s a reason why the Steelers are field-goal favorites on the road despite the Texans showing offensive proficiency under C.J. Stroud. Houston is still a young team that needs to find consistency, particularly up front where T.J. Watt should have a field day in the offensive backfield. The limit here is -3 for Pittsburgh as this will likely be a low-scoring game. But the more experienced unit with the more talented defense should push through in the end … even if it’s offense is struggling. Pittsburgh on a 5-0 ATS streak in road games

    Matt's Analysis:

    Houston is down to its third-string left tackle against TJ Watt & Co. That likely will not go well for CJ Stroud (whom I already played to have his first pick). Mike Tomlin only has four career losses against rookie quarterbacks.

    Bob's Analysis:

    Houston got their first win of the season last week in Jacksonville. CJ Stroud has yet to throw an interception this season and has been impressive thus far. The Steelers have struggled offensively, relying on their defense to win both games this season. Kenny Pickett has not gotten the protection needed to make plays for the offense as the offense only average 275 yards per game. Houston has the momentum returning home after their first win.

    Mike's Analysis:

    Nico Collins was only targeted three times in Week 3, which he turned into two catches for 34 yards. Prior to that, he had 80 receiving yards in Week 1 and 146 in Week 2. In those games, he received 11 and nine targets, respectively. C.J. Stroud has looked great through three games, so with the expectation that Collins receives a heavier workload against the Steelers, I’m on the over.

    Josh's Analysis:

    This is take number on an upstart Texans team that remains a work in progress but should be a live underdog. The past two weeks, the Steelers have benefitted from favorable matchups and self-destructing opposition. They are favored Sunday based largely on reputation and public perception.

    Dave's Analysis:

    Look for this line at 33.5 at even money -- laying this much juice isn't ideal. But riding with Stroud is ideal as he's averaged 40.3 pass attempts per game. The only time he's been below 44 pass attempts was last week in a blowout win over Jacksonville. This one should be more competitive, not a blowout. Houston can't run the ball, ask anyone who has Dameon Pierce in fantasy. Stroud however has been awesome, completing 64.5% of his throws, ranking top-10 in yards per attempt with zero interceptions and, most importantly, thrown at the seventh-highest rate at 63.8% of his snaps. Pittsburgh has seen 40-plus pass attempts against them in each of its past two.

    Mike's Analysis:

    Twenty-eight times, rookie QBs have tried. All but four times, they have failed to guide their teams straight-up past the Steelers under Mike Tomlin. The bearded veteran coach keeps those first-year guys contained. C.J. Stroud was wow-some for the Texans last Sunday versus Jacksonville, but the Pittsburgh defense is less forgiving. The Men of Steel have beaten Cleveland and Las Vegas the past two weeks. Houston is as good as neither.

    Matt's Analysis:

    Stroud has been so good as a rookie (I'd much rather have him than PIT's second-year Kenny Pickett) that him throwing a pick is an "underdog" to not throwing one Sunday. Sorry, but rookie QBs don't go four straight starts to open a career without an INT. In fact, the only previous NFL QB to have zero INTs in his first four starts with a minimum of 30 attempts in each was Gardner Minshew in 2019. Can't say I expected Minshew to be that guy. The Steelers are going to have Stroud under duress all day (lead in sacks) and have four picks.

    Erik's Analysis:

    The Steelers defense should feast against Texans rookie QB C.J. Stroud and a banged-up offensive line. Plus, I still don’t trust the Pittsburgh offense to light it up. Both teams had several bog plays last week that you cannot just assume will keep translating. Go Under.

    R.J.'s Analysis:

    The decimated Houston offensive line faces a tough test in the Pittsburgh pass rush, but those injuries haven't mattered over the last few weeks with C.J. Stroud playing well. The Steelers offense was unimpressive again last week outside of a 72-yard TD, averaging just 4.4 yards per play otherwise. Houston just slowed down a better offense despite their defensive injuries, and I have a lot more trust in what this coaching staff is doing than what's going on in Pittsburgh. The Texans also have a sneaky rest advantage after the Steelers' issues getting back to Pittsburgh Sunday/Monday. Grab the hook while you can get it at DraftKings.
