Rams: Point spread, line and odds
The betting preview, including
point spread, line and odds, of the NFL Week 16 Thursday game
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. St. Louis Rams.
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.

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.
