Today’s Ravens vs. Steelers NFL Week 12 matchup was originally scheduled for primetime on Thanksgiving night, but due to positive COVID tests in Baltimore was initially pushed back until Sunday afternoon.
Positive tests and contract tracing forced the NFL to move Ravens vs. Steelers a couple of more times, eventually landing on this afternoon.

After the parade of schedule changes and evolving player news, the Ravens vs. Steelers spread reopened at Pittsburgh -10 and quickly climbed to -10.5.
And once the line moved off the important spread of 10, sharps jumped on the opportunity to grab the Ravens at +10.5, likely explaining why this number is back to the opener (click here for live NFL odds).
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track instances of market-wide line movement caused by respected bettors, suggest that smart money hit Baltimore on Tuesday morning.
Our NFL public betting data concurs, as the Ravens are attracting 46% of the money on just 34% of the spread tickets. This reveals that the bigger bets — ones more likely to come from wiseguys — are landing on the road underdogs.
Since 2003, 10 is the fourth-most frequent margin of victory in NFL games, serving as a classic reminder that pros bet on numbers, not teams.
