Week 11 point spread: Steelers vs. Jets, Rams vs. 49ers On Sunday the struggling New York Jets (1-8) will welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-2) and things are just not looking good for them. There is no surprise that the Steelers are favorites with betting odds -500 and the Jets are dog with odds +350 at the online bookmaker Bodog Sports.

Betting trends indicate that Pittsburgh is 10-4 against the spread in its last 14 games and the NY Jets are 1-5-1 against the spread in their last 7 games.

 The Jets remain at the bottom of the NFL rankings in defense and offense and if they could beat the Steelers No.1 ranked defense on Sunday, it will be the biggest upset ever. Pittsburgh's running backs Dan Kreider and Willie Parker have been upgraded to probable and are expected to join the team in New York, and so does LB Andre Frazier. Latest reports indicate that Jets will feature Kellen Clemens as the starting quarterback once again, even though Chad Pennington was upgraded to probable this weekend. NY Jets TEs Joe Kowalewski and Chris Baker, DE C.J. Mosley and WR Brad Smith are all expected to be ready for the Sunday football game. At this point, however, there is no reason to believe that the Pittsburgh Steelers would fail to cover the -10 points spread.

 Also on Sunday the St. Louis Rams (1-8) will visit the San Francisco 49ers (2-7) and this game could bring some nice betting action this weekend. The Rams did a number on the Saints last week 37-29 and Bodog Sports have taken notice and placed St. Louis as the favorite on their betting sheet this week with odds -160 and the 49ers are underdog with odds +140. The point spread on the St. Louis Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers is currently sitting at -3 points chalk the Rams with the total at 39.5 points. Keep in mind that St. Louis is 2-7 against the spread in its last 9 games and San Francisco is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games.

 The 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has been upgraded to probable for the Sunday game, but QB Shaun Hill remains questionable and coach Mike Nolan said that veteran Trent Dilfer will start against the Rams. Wide receiver Ashley Lelie is out for Week 11 and so is DT Aubrayo Franklin. The St. Louis Rams have listed WRs Isaac Bruce and Dante Hall as probable for the Week 11 game and C Brett Romberg is the only questionable player on the team for Sunday.
