The Pittsburgh Steelers opened as road favorites in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders, but that line dramatically swung the other way after their ugly Monday Night Football win over the Cleveland Browns, and the Black and Gold kicked off Week 3 as field goal underdogs. It doesn’t seem likely that pattern will carry over into Week 4 against the Houston Texans.

The Steelers have once again opened as road favorites, with Pittsburgh giving up three points on the betting line for Sunday’s game against the Texans as of early Monday morning.

Other books have the Steelers as high as 4.5-point favorites, but Bet MGM has them as -3. New customers to Bet MGM can get $200 in bonus bets when they sign up and place a $10 bet.

The Steelers, obviously, covered the spread and then some, beating the Raiders outright, 23-18 while improving to 2-1 on the season. It was the team’s second outright victory as an underdog. As long as the line holds, they’ll be entering Reliant Stadium in Houston as a favorite for the second time.

The Texans are 1-2 against the spread. They failed to cover as 9.5-point underdogs in their 25-9 Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. They then lost by 11 points as 1-point favorites to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2. This past Sunday, they routed the Jacksonville Jaguars, 37-17, after entering the game as 7.5-point underdogs. Two of Houston’s three games have gone over the total.

The Steelers and Texans will kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday from Reliant Stadium in Hoston.
