Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts: Predictions, picks and odds for NFL Week 12 matchup




The Pittsburgh Steelers (3-7) head to Indianapolis to face the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts (4-6-1) dropped their first game under interim head coach Jeff Saturday against the NFL-best Philadelphia Eagles. Despite the loss, the Colts showed fight and renewed tenacity. It has been the identity of the team since Saturday took over at the helm.

The Steelers are 1-4 on the road this season. Rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett continues to progress but gets a tough challenge against a Colts defense that ranks 11th overall in points allowed.

Here's a look at the betting details and USA TODAY's NFL staff picks for the Steelers vs. Colts Week 12 game:

Lorenzo Reyes: Steelers 24, Colts 21

I'm still not sold on the Jeff Saturday Colts, despite their playing with more intensity and efficiency since Frank Reich got fired. As long as Pittsburgh can generate a pass rush, it should generate turnovers. That will be the key to the upset.

Safid Deen: Steelers 23, Colts 17

This has all the makings of a matchup between top running backs like Colts star Jonathan Taylor and Steelers starter Najee Harris. But Steelers edge rusher and reigning defensive player of the year J.J. Watt will have the biggest impact on this game.

Lance Pugmire: Colts 21, Steelers 17

Expect the defense to carry this Monday night affair - the total is 39.5 - with Jonathan Taylor controlling the clock and providing the difference.

Jarrett Bell: Steelers 27, Colts 23

Nate Davis: Colts 24, Steelers 20

Tyler Dragon: Colts 24, Steelers 17
