Houston Texans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
45 un-105 at PINNACLE
|Play Type: Top Premium|
I’m playing on the TEXANS/STEELERS UNDER. Both teams will be looking to make their mark on the defensive end, with Houston ranking among the league bottom-feeders in passing yards against and the Steelers coming off an embarrassing loss in Cleveland.
The Texans have made a habit of keeping the total low following a loss, going 0-5 O/U in their last five after an ATS defeat and 1-5 O/U in the previous six after being beaten straight-up. Their only Over result in that span came last time out, as they fell victim to Andrew Luck’s 370 yards and three TDs in a Thursday night loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Consider the Steelers’ pass offense a significant step down from there, and expect a full-scale ground assault as a result.
The Steelers offer a handful of inviting Under trends, going 0-7 O/U in their last seven October games, 1-5 O/U in their last six Monday tilts and 1-4 O/U in their previous five contests against AFC opponents. Pittsburgh will dare Houston to win on the ground, having held opposing quarterbacks to the 10th-fewest yards per game in the air (225.8). And while Houston’s rushing game has been solid so far this season, it could be tough to gain much traction with the Steelers constantly stacking the box.
In short, expect plenty of long, grinding drives from both teams - ideal conditions for a prime-time Under.

Ben Burns burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s, first making his selections available to the public in 1998. Now entering his tenth year, Ben has become one of the most successful and well-respected handicappers on the entire Internet.
From 1998 to 2006, Ben had his selections documented by the Big Guy Sports Monitor. During that time, he accumulated numerous seasonal titles in all the major sports. In fact, competing against a field of 150, Ben's NFL selections still rank as #1 of all-time there. With such a commanding lead over the field, it is highly unlikely that his all-time NFL record there will ever be matched.
Like all handicappers, Ben goes through both hot and cold streaks. However, whether winning or losing, he always "tells it like it is." Perhaps more importantly, as his many fans are quick to point out, Ben's winning weeks tend to greatly outnumber his losing ones. Note that Ben followed up an extremely strong 2006 with an even better campaign in 2007!
Ben is known as a "Totals Expert" and his over/under plays are highly sought after in all sports. In addition to his "total" success, Ben's "sides" are also known for their sizzling hot streaks. While he advocates playing all his selections equally, Ben's knack for nailing his "Big" plays is truly remarkable.
Ben capped off a highly successful college football season by winning his Bowl Game of the Year, a 41-10 wire-to-wire destruction on Georgia over Hawaii. Ben's NFL playoffs didn't go as well though and he lost his first ever Super Bowl selection, when the Patriots were upset by the Giants. Despite that rare setback, Ben's Super Bowl record remains at 10-1 for his career. Additionally, his NFL playoff picks remain a powerful 47-22 (68%) ATS the past six years. Ben isn't just a football expert though, as his hockey, baseball AND basketball picks are also highly respected.
Ben logs extremely long hours. His hard work clearly shows itself in his high quality writeups and extraordinary long-term records. If you're looking for an honest, hard-working handicapper with a documented history of success, give Ben Burns a try. We're sure that you'll be impressed!
