The Steelers got a much-needed win over the Broncos on Sunday and could find themselves at 3-3 heading into their bye week if they can defeat the Russell Wilson-less Seahawks on Sunday Night Football at Heinz Field. With Wilson out due to a broken finger and veteran backup quarterback Geno Smith filling in, the odds of a Steelers win are much greater. However, Smith did perform well when he replaced Wilson last Thursday night against the Rams.
According to Oddsshark.com, the Steelers are 5-point favorites against the Seahawks and the over/under is 42.5 points. The Seahawks opened as 2.5-point road favorites on the look-ahead line
