NFL Betting: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Houston Texans Odds

2011 NFL Week 4 Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Houston Texans Odds After watching both teams play in September, the Steelers – not surprisingly – dress up as dogs for the first this in this series (2-1 SU & ATS, all as favorites).

It should also come as no surprise that the numbers look awfully good for the defending AFC champs in this rare underdog role. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

For starters, they are 5-1 ATS as dogs versus the AFC South. In fact, the dog in Pitt / AFC South matchups is a bone-jarring 10-1 ATS.

And in his rare trips to the kennel, HC Mike Tomlin is 9-5 ATS when taking points, including 9-1 ATS if the O/U total is less than 45 points.

There’s no question this is a step-up game for the Texans and if they pass this test, they are indeed the new Kings of the Hill in the AFC South.

And while they gave a supreme effort last week in New Orleans before falling late, our betting database reminds us that in its franchise history Houston is just 2-7 SU and ATS in games off its initial loss of the season.

We should also point out that HC Gary Kubiak has not handled success well in his fi ve-plus years in the league, posting a 7-19-2 ATS mark when his team is .500 or greater.

Tomlin failed to grab the bone on opening day against Baltimore. Not today. A must take.

The current betting is Texans 3-point favorites versus the Steelers, while the game's total is sitting at 45½.
