Jets vs Steelers Odds, Trends, and Free Pick – January 23rd, 2011 ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
The betting line for this year’s AFC Championship Game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers opened up at -4 in favor of the Steelers and quickly was bet down to -3. As of Tuesday night, the line has moved back up to 3.5. I expect the line to stay around there or even go back to 3. The total opened up at 38.5 and has not moved at Sportsbook.com. Right now, the betting public is just about split right down the middle on both the total and spread. To help you better decide who to bet, take a look at these trends for tonight.
Jets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in January.
Jets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff road games.
Steelers are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 playoff games.
Steelers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 playoff games as a favorite.
Over is 8-2 in Jets last 10 games in January.

Over is 10-1 in Steelers last 11 playoff home games.
Over is 19-2 in Steelers last 21 games in January.
Jets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
My Prediction: The Jets have beaten Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back-to-back weeks. They’ve already beaten Ben Roethliesburger in Pittsburgh this year. There’s no reason to believe they can’t do it again. Take the points. I think the Jets will be in the Super Bowl in 2 weeks.
