Betting market: Though the Steelers are getting more than 68% of bets at the time of writing, the line has not been moving in their favor against the downtrodden Jags (see live betting data here).

After opening at +6, the Jags have actually dropped to +5.5 a couple of times and reached as low as +5 thanks to some sharp action earlier in the week.

I wouldn’t be shocked for the Steelers to make a push toward the key number of -7, but nothing suggesting that move has happened … yet. — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Pittsburgh has won and covered five consecutive games. On average, the Steelers (6-3 against the spread) are covering the spread by 5.2 points per game.

Since 2003, it has been profitable to fade teams that have covered the spread on average by five or more points after the first month of the season: 369-296-18 (56%) ATS, per our Bet Labs data. — John Ewing

The Steelers played on Thursday Night Football last week and now have 10 days of rest before facing the Jaguars on Sunday.

A popular question this week will be if Big Ben and the Steelers have an advantage with extra rest. A quick answer: No. In Roethlisberger’s career, he is 17-18 ATS on at least 10 days of rest. — Evan Abrams
