Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season features an exciting slate of matchups, including a Sunday Night Football tilt between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers have been heating up lately, winning for the fourth time in their last five outings with a 13-10 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders. Meanwhile, the Ravens bounced back from their latest loss with a 17-9 win over the Atlanta Falcons, led by an impressive defensive effort that included linebacker Roquan Smith racking up 15 total tackles (seven solo).

Can the Steelers continue their winning ways on the road? Or will the Ravens pull off another impressive performance at M&T Bank Stadium?

Steelers vs Ravens Prediction & Pick

While it's still too early to tell if the Ravens will have Lamar Jackson (knee) back under center this week, it won't really matter. After all, Baltimore already defeated the Steelers, 16-14, back in Week 14 without Jackson and there's no reason to believe why backup QB Tyler Huntley can't lead the home team to another victory.

Sure, the Steelers have won three straight road games, but those wins came against the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts: all sub-.500 teams. Pittsburgh is currently 0-4 straight up on the road against teams with winning records (as of Week 17) while also owning the seventh-worst scoring margin in away games this season (minus-6.8).

With a loss eliminating the Steelers from playoff contention, look for a motivated Ravens squad to get the job done in Baltimore.

Final Score Prediction: Ravens: 19 | Steelers: 13

Steelers vs Ravens Betting Trends

- Pittsburgh is 2-7 straight up in its last nine games against the AFC.
- Baltimore is 1-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last five home games against Pittsburgh.
- The total has hit the under in six of Pittsburgh's last eight games against Baltimore.
- The total has hit the under in each of Baltimore's last five home games.

Steelers vs Ravens Best Bet

All signs are pointing to a low-scoring AFC North battle. For starters, the Steelers are averaging just 17.5 points in their last four games, whereas the Ravens have averaged 11.5 PPG in that span. Furthermore, the total has gone under in each of Baltimore's last five home games, as well as in six of the last eight Steelers-Ravens tilts.

This should be a hard-hitting battle won in the trenches, so look for a low total to reflect that.

Bet: Under 36 Points (-110)
