Steelers vs. Rams: Point spread, line and odds We will start the NFL Week 16 previews of the game with the point spread and betting line on the Thursday game between the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5) and the St. Louis Rams (3-11). The Steelers are on their 2-game losing streak with loss to New England and last week to the Jaguars at home, two games which moved them to a tie with the Browns for the AFC North title. And on Thursday Pittsburgh will get their best chance to reclaim the leadership with a game against the Rams, who sitting on the bottom of NFC West have given up playoff hopes a long time ago. It's a very important game for the Steelers and the fact that they will be the favorite on the road is no shocker. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports (instant deposit avail), the point spread on the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. St. Louis Rams game is currently sitting at -8 points chalk the Steelers with the expected total at 43.5 points. At another online betting firm, Bookmaker, Pittsburgh is also the odds favorite, the line on the Steelers sitting at -360 and the line on the Rams is +300.

 Being the NFL leaders in defense capabilities, allowing 258 yards for 15.6 points, the Pittsburgh Steelers should have little problems covering the spread on Thursday night. When betting, keep in mind that Pittsburgh is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games and St. Louis is 4-2 against the spread in its last 6 games. Also, the total has gone UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh's last 5 games on the road.
