Ravens vs Steelers Prediction, Odds & Best Bet for Week 14 (Pittsburgh Takes Advantage of Lamar Jackson's Absence)
Ravens vs Steelers Week 14 Game Info
Week 14 of the 2022 NFL season includes an AFC North collision between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Ravens are coming off a low-scoring 10-9 win over the Denver Broncos. Unfortunately, they lost starting QB Lamar Jackson to a knee injury in the process. Meanwhile, the Steelers are feeling themselves lately, winning for the third time in their last four tries with a 19-16 victory against the Atlanta Falcons.
Can the Ravens survive potentially being without their starting signal-caller? Or will the Steelers take advantage of the situation with a strong effort at home?

Ravens vs Steelers Prediction & Pick
With Jackson suffering a PCL tear and missing the next one to three weeks, the Steelers get the honor of facing Ravens backup QB Tyler Huntley. The 24-year-old signal-caller is 1-3 in four career starts and didn't look too special in relief last week, averaging just 6.9 yards per pass completion — noticeably down from the Ravens' 10.6 average before the game (No. 13).
The Steelers haven't been great this season, but the lack of Jackson makes this winnable. The Ravens just lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road two weeks ago and without their star playmaker this week, the former will be in trouble.

Ravens vs Steelers Best Bet
Since drafting Jackson 32nd overall in 2018, the Ravens own an uninspiring 2-5 record whenever he isn't under center. They've lost four straight games without him and have been held to 19 or fewer points in four of the last six games that he's missed.
Without having to deal with Jackson, I can see the Steelers should be able to win this one by at least a field goal. Besides, Pittsburgh is a solid 5-2 ATS in its last seven games, whereas Baltimore has failed to cover the spread in six of its last eight.
Bet: Steelers -2.5 (-118)
