NFL Week 8 New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers OddsThe New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers will fight on Sunday to pick up a win at Heinz Field. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

As has been the case all season, will rest once again become rust for another NFL squad? We say yes, especially with Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick a surprising 4-12-2 ATS with extra time off in his career versus foe off a SU win… and that was before the whole CBA thing.

This is also probably not the best spot for the Brady Bunch to be walking into as the Steelers are a mind-boggling 24-5 SU and 26-3 ATS in October with revenge.

What’s even better in this matchup of AFC Super Bowl hopefuls for Steelers’ supporters is they get the Black and Gold in the rare role of home underdog.

Remember – these two met in this building less than a year ago and it was Pitt who was a 4.5-point favorite.

The roles have changed a little too much for our liking this NFL betting season and we can’t help but back a team that is 6-1 ATS in its last seven tries as home dogs and one that is 22-5 ATS as dogs with revenge, including 5-0 ATS at home and 10-3 SU and 11-2 ATS with Big Ben at the helm.

But is it wise going against mighty New England and making the Steelers our 5* Best Bet of the Week, you ask? In a nutshell, yes – especially with the league’s worst defense laying points into the league’s best.

Like Steve Miller once said, “Take the money(line) and run!”  Sportsbook Money line: Patriots - 145
