The Pittsburgh Steelers have opened as home underdogs to the New Orleans Saints for their Week 10 home game at Acrisure Stadium coming out of the Week 9 bye.
The Steelers are 2.5-point underdogs to the Saints, according to odds posted Tuesday morning by FanDuel Sportsbook. The Steelers have a +126 money line and the over/under total for the game is 41.5.
The line opened at 2.5 on Sunday, moved briefly to 3 points on Monday, then moved back to 2.5 after the Saints lost to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
So far this season, the Steelers are 3-4-1 against the spread, and 3-3-1 as an underdog. They won outright in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals and in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers covered an 11-point spread as road underdogs to the Miami Dolphins with a six-point loss in Week 7.
As home underdogs, the Steelers are 1-0-1, pushing a three-point spread against the New England Patriots in Week 2 in addition to beating Tampa as 9.5-point underdogs.
The Saints are 3-6 against the spread after failing to cover as one-point underdogs in their 27-13 loss to the Ravens. New Orleans is 1-2 as a favorite this season. They did not cover a six-point spread with a 1-point win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1 and lost outright as a 1-point favorite over the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. The Saints have been a home favorite just once the season, when they covered a 5.5 point spread against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5.
Three of the Steelers’ eight games went over the total, with five going under. The Steelers have gone over 41.5 points four times this season.
The Saints have gone over the total five times in nine games, and have had more than 41.5 points scored five times.
