Betting market: The Patriots opened up as 2.5-point favorites against the Steelers in Pittsburgh, with the total sitting at 49.

Ben Roethlisberger has been a home underdog once prior to this week over the last 4 seasons — against Tom Brady and the Patriots (New England won, 27-24). Evan Abrams

Trends to know: The Patriots lost to the Dolphins on the final play of their Week 14 matchup. Since 2003, Tom Brady is 34-11 against the spread following a regular-season loss. John Ewing


This will be the Patriots’ second straight game away from Foxborough, but no quarterback has come close to achieving the success that Brady has had playing back-to-back road games.

Brady is 21-10-1 (67.7%) ATS in the second of two straight road games since 2003, covering by 6.5 points per game. When the Pats face an opponent with a record better than .500 in this spot, Brady is 16-4 (80%) ATS, covering by 12 points per game. Abrams

Did you know? There are not many more accomplished quarterbacks in the NFL than Brady and Ben Roethlisberger, and this is just the 11th time they’ll face each other. (Big Ben is 3-7 ATS in their meetings.)

Here’s how the two stack up against the spread. Abrams
