San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers point spread

 And we will close our NFL divisional playoffs preview with the odds and point spread on the San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game, the final playoff of the week. The Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) had little competition securing the spot in the divisional playoffs, while the San Diego Chargers had to literally rush through the Colts and move forward in the playoffs with 17-23 victory. And if the previous meeting between the Chargers and the Steelers in the middle of the regular season, won 11-10 by the Steelers, is any indication of the AFC divisional playoff, the last Sunday football game should be the cherry on the cake.

 It's hardly a surprise that the popular online sports betting website Bookmaker (official) has listed the Pittsburgh Steelers as the favorite of the two teams to win the divisional playoff battle on Sunday. The Steelers are sitting on odds -265, while the Chargers will be once again the underdog of their playoff game with odds +225 on victory. The San Diego Chargers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers point spread is posted at -6 points chalk the Steelers at Bookmaker and the total agreed upon by the odds makers is 38 points even. Looking at how the betting is going at the sportsbook, the Chargers vs. Steelers game is the only on of the four this weekend where the bettors are actually taking the favorite team. And rightfully so, according to the betting trends, San Diego is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games, but Pittsburgh is 8-3 against the spread in its last 11 games when playing San Diego and the Steelers are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing at home against the Chargers.

 For Pittsburgh the only big question remains starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, although the QB did a full practice on Thursday, recovering from a concussion. Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson remains questionable for the Chargers vs. Steelers playoff game after missing Thursday practice, although Darren Sproles proved more than worthy with 328 all-purpose yards last game, including the winning touchdown. San Diego tight end Antonio Gates also missed Thursday practice, but linebacker Brandon Siler did a full one and should be ready for the San Diego vs. Pittsburgh playoff game on Sunday.
