Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Point spread and line

The preview of the NFL Week 15 game Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, including the point spread and betting lines.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Point spread and line One of the best football game in Week 15 is without a doubt the matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars (9-4) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-4). The Steelers will try and keep the leading position in the AFC North away from the Browns on Sunday and the Jaguars, although pretty much waived AFC South, are still on the road to the playoffs via wild card, if they could keep away the 8-5 and 7-6 competition in the American Football Conference. The last time these two football teams met was in 2006 and the Jaguars took the victory home 9-0. But the odds makers are siding with the Steelers this week. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports the point spread on the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Pittsburgh Steelers is sitting at -3.5 points chalk the Steelers with total listed as 37 points. Pittsburgh is also the odds favorite at Bookmaker, the line on the Steelers sitting at -190 and the Jaguars hold underdog line of +160.

 Three major players for the Steelers missed Wednesday practice, however, and those are the quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, cornerback Bryant McFadden and wide receiver Hines Ward. At this point it remains unknown if these football players will make the list on Sunday. But Jacksonville is also dealing with a few injuries, defensive end Reggie Hayward and linebacker Mike Peterson are out for Week 15, and CB Rashean Mathis, DT Jeremy Mincey and RB Fred Taylor all missed practice yesterday. Offensively the Jags and the Steelers match up pretty well, with 23.5 and 23.8 points respectively scored per game. Of course, the defense will be the Steelers primary weapon, leading the league with 245.5 yards and 14.5 points allowed on average. Keep in mind that Jacksonville is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games and Pittsburgh is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games. The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Pittsburgh's last 11 games when playing Jacksonville.
