The Pittsburgh Steelers will be underdogs in their own building for the fourth time this season when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Steelers opened as 1.5-point underdogs for their Week 8 AFC showdown, and it will be the fourth straight time they’ll be favored to lose at home this season. The Steelers were 1-point underdogs to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1, two-point underdogs to the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 and 4.5-point underdogs to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

The Steelers won two of those three games outright, beating the Browns and Ravens, while failing to cover against the 49ers. On the whole, the Steelers are 4-1 against the spread as an underdog this season and have covered in four straight games as an underdog after beating the Los Angeles Rams, 24-17, as 3.5-point underdogs on Sunday.

The Steelers have had five of their six games go under the total, a trend that has also continued for four consecutive games.

The Rams are 3-3 against the spread and have covered in two of the last three weeks in victories as favorites against the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons. The Rams have had four of their six games go under the total.

Jacksonville has also been hot against the number. The Jaguars are 5-2 against the spread and have covered in four straight weeks. This will only be the second time they have been favored as a true road team. They covered a 3.5-point spread with a 10-point win over Indianapolis in Week 1. The Jaguars played two of their seven games in London.

The Steelers and Jaguars will kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Acrisure Stadium.
