Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens Betting Preview
When the Steelers and Ravens kick-off, the calendar will read 2023. But pick any year since Baltimore reentered the league, and this game means something. Throw out the Steelers vs. Ravens stats. This game is intense even when these teams are at opposite ends of the NFL standings.
The Steelers vs. Ravens odds will rely heavily on how the teams performed when they played in Pittsburgh three weeks earlier, and those odds will rely on the play of Lamar Jackson and the health of the Baltimore secondary.
As good as the Ravens have been in recent history, the Steelers came into the 2022 season with four straight wins against their division rival. They also led the all-time series 32-24 before this season began.
Last season’s game in Baltimore was won by the Steelers in overtime. In Pittsburgh a month before that, the Steelers won 20-19. The last time this matchup wasn’t decided by one score was the last time the Ravens won, 28-10, in 2019.
Seven times these teams have played into overtime, and four times they have met in the postseason. Following the 2008 season, the Ravens and Steelers played for the AFC Championship Game, which was won by Pittsburgh 23-14. The Steelers went on to beat the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.
One of the most important Steelers vs. Ravens stats to know is how each team does as an NFL pick against the spread. Make sure you know their NFL stats for 2022, but also take a look at the historical date ATS. Last season Pittsburgh was 8-10 against the spread, including the playoffs, while Baltimore was 8-9.
Of course, we also know from last year that as Lamar Jackson goes, so go the Ravens. The Steelers vs. Ravens odds will reflect how effective he has been in the last few weeks and how healthy he is by Week 17.
This game is being played at M&T Bank Stadium, located in downtown Baltimore and the home of the Ravens since it opened in 1998. For the first two years of the Ravens existence, they played at old Memorial Stadium, the former home of the Baltimore Colts, before M&T Bank Stadium opened.
When the stadium first opened, it was known as Ravens Stadium at Camden Yards because of its baseball neighbor, Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Prior to the start of this season, the Ravens were 136-57 in the regular season at M&T Bank Stadium and 3-4 in the playoffs. The Steelers, however, have won four of the last five meetings at M&T Bank Stadium and are 13-13 in Baltimore overall.
Betting Tips for Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens
Be sure to look at the NFL schedule as you analyze the Steelers vs. Ravens odds. Pittsburgh spends Christmas at home against the Raiders before traveling to Baltimore to celebrate the New Year. The Ravens are at home against Atlanta over the Christmas weekend before hosting the Steelers.
Both of these teams like to run the football, and the Steelers vs. Ravens stats will swing heavily on which team has the most effective rushing attack. The Steelers bang it inside with a steady dose of Najee Harris, while the Ravens run game is set up by the speed and athleticism of Jackson.
The playoffs and playoff seeding is at stake for this game and at this point in the season, making it an even better NFL matchup than it normally is.
