Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals Odds, Prediction, and Pick
As we take a look at the week 7 NFL match-up's, there are quite a few that stick out above the rest, and one of them is the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers and Cardinals are two teams that are pretty tough to figure out overall. The Steelers looked pretty bad in week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens in their 35-7 beatdown, but have looked pretty solid all around since that point. The Steelers have won 4 out of their last 5 games, and while people have said that they don't look the same as they did in the past; their record doesn't lie as they sit at 4-2 and pushing for the top spot in the AFC North. The Cardinals on the other hand have not lived up to the hype that was surrounding them before the season, and quarterback Kevin Kolb just hasn't been able to push this team over the hump. Kolb has 5 touchdowns and 6 interceptions this season, but more importantly the Cardinals are sitting at 1-4 and are riding a 4 game losing streak. The team hasn't been able to pull out a win since week 1 against the Carolina Panthers, and have lost to teams like the Seattle Seahawks (who are 2-3), and the Minnesota Vikings (who are 1-5). This match-up will kick off at 4:05pm EST, and should be one of the more interesting betting match-ups of week 7 in the National Football League.

This one has the look of a tough task for the home team, and I'd be shocked to see it go any other way. The Cardinals offense has struggled a bit it seems, and more importantly their defense has struggled mightily. I can't see how this Cardinals defense can stop Ben Roethlisberger, Rashard Mendenhall, and Mike Wallace, and keep this game at anything less than a one touchdown game in the end. I like the Steelers offense to hit on all cylinders in this game, and head back home to Pittsburgh with a nice road win to send their overall record to a solid 5-2.

As many people in the betting world are, it was a bit of a shock to see the Cardinals only as 3.5 point underdogs. Arizona hasn't shown much this year, and this match-up against Pittsburgh will be one of their toughest in the first seven weeks of the season. I see the Steelers getting the job done here, thanks mainly to their offense; but also from a good all around defensive game from Troy Polamalu and company. I'm picking the Pittsburgh Steelers to get the win and the cover here.
Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers -3.5
