Steelers Need Victory to Stay Alive – November 2

Updated:

It’s only the beginning of November, but the Pittsburgh Steelers need a win on Thursday Night Football to keep their postseason hopes alive. The Steelers are currently 4-3 and trail the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens (6-2) by two games. If history is any indication, Pittsburgh should add another W in the win column tonight. Will Sports Hub’s experts buy into these historical trends?

The Steelers have won four straight against the Titans

Whatever our Sports Hub handicappers are doing, it’s working. Our top-5 cappers over the first two months of the season are all SportsHub exclusive handicappers. And, they all have winning percentages of 60 percent or higher and have added at least $700 to their bankrolls. If you are planning to bet on the Steelers or Titans tonight, let Sports Hub help you make your final decision.

Steelers Have Owned Tennessee

What is very interesting heading into tonight’s game is that the Steelers have dominated the Titans for the last 20 years. Pittsburgh and Tennessee have not played each that often since they are in different divisions in the AFC. However, in their 11 games since 2003, the Steelers are 8-3 straight up. Over the last 10 years, the two teams have played four times. The Steelers have won all four!

Pittsburgh has also fared well in primetime games recently. The Steelers have won their last five straight games under the lights and they are 5-1 ATS in their last six. As challenged as the Steelers may be, they are 8-3 both SU and ATS in their last 11 games. What has powered that run is a defense that can score. In the Steelers first primetime game this season, the defense scored twice as Pittsburgh beat Cleveland 26-22.

The Steelers will face Tennessee rookie quarterback Will Levis tonight. Levis started last week in place of starter Ryan Tannehill, who is injured. Levis became the third quarterback in NFL history to throw four touchdown passes in his debut. Tennessee scored 28 points, its highest since 2021, and upset Atlanta as 2.5-point underdogs. Can the Titans win on the road in Pittsburgh? The Steelers are 5-1 against Tennessee when playing in Pittsburgh.

Our Experts Shine Again

William Taylor was the Sports Hub guru last night nailing all of his picks and topping the leaderboard in winnings. After him, two more Sports Hub experts were perfect, and two more rounded out the top-5. When I talk about how good our handicappers are, I’m not just blowing smoke.

Day after day, the best handicappers are here at Sports Hub. They are the big reason why Sports Hub is becoming the go-to source for sports picks. In addition to the top handicappers in the world, our computer picks and free picks win consistently too. All of these are accessible with a Sports Hub membership.

So, just how good were our cappers yesterday? Let’s find out.

  • Top dog: As mentioned, William Taylor was No. 1 on the leaderboard yesterday. He was a perfect 4-0 and added $400 to his bankroll. It’s been a nice three-day tear for William, who has correctly predicted 8 of 11 picks. 
  • We went 3-0: Not one, but two Sports Hub experts turned in 3-0 days. Both Al Grant and Dan Jones won $300 on their picks yesterday. Al is actually one of our top NBA cappers right now and he hit three basketball picks last night. Over the last seven days, Al is 12-6 and has added $495 to his bankroll. Two of Dan’s picks were on the NBA.
  • Old school Sal: Good ole Sal Lombardi continues his winning ways. Sal put in 10 picks yesterday and went 6-4. He ended up $298 to the good after hitting all four of his NHL picks. Remember, Sal is one of our leading NHL experts here at Sports Hub. Over the last seven days, Sal has earned $1063 on his NHL picks!
  • Rounding out the top-5: That would be the new guy, Randall Dickelman. He put in a whopping 14 picks yesterday and ended up going 9-5. Even better, he earned $237 to add to his bankroll. Like Sal, Randall is an NHL expert here at SportsHub. Over the last seven days, he is right behind Sal on the leaderboard. Randall is 34-22 and has winnings of $790 over the last week!

Rangers Win the World Series

Baseball is finally over. The Texas Rangers were held hitless and scoreless for six innings before they finally got to Arizona ace Zac Gallen. That was the big news from Wednesday. And then just like that, the odds are out for next year’s World Series champion. The Atlanta Braves are the favorite once again. 

A basketball legend passed away yesterday and the Lakers were finally able to beat their crosstown rival, the Clippers last night. 

What’s trending in sports? 

  • World Series champions: The Rangers broke through in the seventh inning and ended up beating Arizona 5-0 to win the franchise’s first World Series title. Texas pitcher Nathan Eovaldi pitched six innings, gave up four hits, and held Arizona scoreless. Eovaldi picked up the win to go 5-0 this postseason, tying a MLB record for the most wins in the playoffs.
  • Another World Series MVP: Corey Seager won a World Series MVP with the Dodgers in 2020. He hit .286 with three home runs and six RBIs to win a second World Series MVP for Texas. Seager joins some pretty elite company. Only three other MLB players have won two World Series MVPs – Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, and Reggie Jackson.

  • Legendary hoops coach passes away: Basketball lost a legend. Love him or hate him, Bobby Knight was one of the most successful coaches ever in college basketball. Knight won 902 games, which was the NCAA record when he retired. It is currently fifth all-time. Knight was known for his brash personality and maybe best known for throwing a chair onto the court during a game between his Indiana Hoosiers and Purdue. 
  • Becoming a legend: Bruce Bochy was enjoying retirement when he got a call from the Texas Rangers. A year later, Bochy is the sixth MLB manager to win four World Series championships. The other five – Casey Stengel, Joe McCarthy, Connie Mack, Walter Alston, and Joe Torre – are all in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
