Steelers vs Titans NFL Thursday Night Betting Odds

Pittsburgh Steelers: Closing in on top of division

Even though it is still early in the schedule, the Steelers saved their season by defeating the Eagles at home on Sunday. Baltimore sits atop the AFC North with a 4-1 record but Pittsburgh can make a move closer to the top with a win Thursday over the host Titans. The Steelers will be without star safety Troy Polamalu after he re-strained his calf against the Eagles but linebacker LaMarr Woodley should be in the lineup even though he strained his right hamstring on Sunday.

Tennessee Titans: Going nowhere fast

Tennessee comes into this game with a 1-4 record after taking a 30-7 beating by the Vikings on Sunday. The Titans will be without injured quarterback Jake Locker for a third straight game. It was a short week for both teams but Tennessee will need to find a way to protect quarterback Matt Hasselbeck if the team wishes to have a fighting chance against the Steelers. This is a game that the Titans very well could win, especially with the injuries on the defensive side of the ball for Pittsburgh.

This game does not bring with it much intrigue but it makes for a great game to bet on because of how lopsided it could wind up being as the struggling Titans host the Steelers. The top online sportsbook of Sportsinteraction.com has the Steelers as -6.5 (-110) favorites over the host Titans. This should be an easy win for the Steelers, who do not take any opponent lightly under head coach Mike Tomlin. Back the Steelers on Thursday night to overtake the Titans.
