Steelers-Titans (Take 2) Headlines Weekend Betting At WV Sportsbooks

Posted on October 23, 2020

If there’s any silver lining to the postponement of the NFL game between Pittsburgh and Tennessee earlier this season, it could be that the game taking place this coming Sunday instead might make it an even bigger deal. Steelers-Titans odds at West Virginia sportsbooks certainly aren’t shying away from the contest.

As it includes two of the three still-undefeated teams in the league, this game should draw a lot of fan attention. For bettors, however, the question is where the best value is.

Breaking down Steelers-Titans odds at WV sportsbooks

Over the course of the week, the line on this contest has moved to as low as a single point. It’s easy to see why. Both franchises enter this contest leading the league in important categories.

For example, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has the third-highest quarterback rating among full-time QBs with at least 100 pass attempts this season. That’s helped Tennessee tie for third in offensive touchdowns so far, also averaging nearly five yards per carry on the ground.

Pittsburgh’s defense continues to be scary for people like Tannehill, posting a league-leading 24 sacks in five games. Opponents are averaging a league-low 218.4 passing yards per game against the Steelers, and that defense has given up just 12 touchdowns in five contests.

So, the 1 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS at Nissan Stadium in Nashville will pit a dynamic offense against a stalwart defense. What does that mean for WV sports betting fans?

The pending regression to the mean for Pittsburgh’s defense might come in this road game. The over has hit in 13 of the last 14 Titans day games.

Additionally, the Steelers have won in 12 of their last 14 games against opponents from the AFC South. Again, this seems like a prime opportunity for some normalizing there. Here’s the action on the contest as of early Thursday morning:

There’s no need to wait for Sunday afternoon to watch your bets play out, however. Just like Pittsburgh, the WVU football faces a tough road test this weekend but will do so a day earlier.

WVU odds against Texas Tech

After this game, WVU will be halfway through its truncated 2020 schedule. The Mountaineers have played just one road conference game so far, so this will be an important contest for taking momentum into the second half.

While the two offenses are comparable, the defensive side of the ball is where WVU should have a huge advantage. Texas Tech averages allowing over twice as many yards per game (499-240.3) and nearly three touchdowns’ worth more points per game (39.5-18.8) than the Mountaineers.

The kick will be at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2, and WV sportsbooks do favor WVU to keep the Red Raiders winless in Big 12 play.

Battle for Ohio highlights other regional NFL action

With the Philadelphia Eagles playing Thursday night and the Baltimore Ravens on a bye, other regional NFL action drops to just two contests this week. One features the second meeting of Ohio’s two NFL franchises this season.

The Cleveland Browns won the first meeting between these two teams on Sept. 17. WV books like them to sweep the Cincinnati Bengals at 1 p.m. ET on CBS on Sunday.

Like Cincinnati, the Washington Football Team also hosts a divisional opponent that sportsbooks predict will be a rude visitor. Although the Dallas Cowboys have been the vastly superior offensive team, the loss of quarterback Dak Prescott reduces the spread on this game to a mere point. Kickoff for this game is slated for 1 p.m. ET on Fox.
