The terrible Monday night football schedule continues this week as the 0-6 Miami Dolphins travel to the Steel City to take on the 2-4 Pittsburgh Steelers. With a win the Steelers will throw themselves right back into the Wild Card conversation, while the Dolphins will be looking to get their first win of the season Monday night.
Below is my best bet for the Monday night football action between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers. All lines are from FanDuel Sportsbook
Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers (-14): O/U 44 points (-105/-115)
The Miami Dolphins remain one of two winless teams after a 31-21 road loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. The Dolphins scored the most points against the Bills defense and were down just three before the Bills sealed the victory with a touchdown on an onside kick attempt. Miami may not win more than one game this season, but I think the will of Ryan Fitzpatrick will make some teams very uncomfortable in the Dolphins last 10 games. After four straight blowout losses the Dolphins have lost by one point to the Washington Redskins and this 10 point loss to the Bills. Miami is 2-4 ATS and the under has hit in four of their six games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to use the momentum they gained before their bye to go on a midseason run and get back into the playoff race. After starting 0-3 the Steelers knocked off the winless Cincinnati Bengals 27-3 before falling 26-23 to the first place Baltimore Ravens. The week before the bye the Steelers went into Los Angeles and knocked off the Los Angeles Chargers 24-17 to improve their record to 2-4 heading into the bye week. With some very winnable games ahead of them, a win Monday night would throw the Steelers right into the Wild Card race. Pittsburgh is 3-2-1 ATS and the under has hit in four of their six games this season.
Series History: The Pittsburgh Steelers took a 14-13 advantage in this matchup after winning the last matchup in this series – a 30-12 win in the AFC Wild Card game back in 2017.
Game Prediction: Should the Steelers, and Mason Rudolph, be favored by two touchdowns against anyone in the league? I am backing the Dolphins at +14 Monday night.
