Bettors like the Steelers as an underdog on Thursday night

The first two weeks of Thursday Night Football featured Josh Allen, Matthew Stafford, Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes. This week, the NFL gifts us Mitchell Trubisky and Jacoby Brissett.

Bettors like Pittsburgh

If you blow a 13-point lead in less than two minutes to the New York Jets, bettors are going to have a hard time backing you with their hard-earned money just a few days later. That seems to be the case on Thursday.

Unders have been money so far this season, as 21 of 32 games have gone under the total. That has been especially true in prime time, as 6 of 7 prime-time games have gone under the total. It’s rare that the majority of the…
