Our free pick will come from Monday night football as the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to face the San Francisco 49ers.
Monday night football will begin from San Francisco at 8:30PM Eastern Time and ESPN will provide a national cable broadcast.
With our free pick we will play on the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers to play under the total of 38 points.
Pittsburgh starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and is doubtful for this contest.
Even if he goes he will not be too mobile and will need to dink and dunk to avoid hits.
When Charlie Batch played last year to open the season while Roethlisberger was suspended the team leaned heavily on the run and their defense.
The game totals were extremely low.
The Steelers defense will have to step up and they have shown to do so when Big Ben is out of the lineup.
The San Francisco 49ers continued to be a ground and pound team eating up yards on the ground and burning clock as the season has worn on.
San Francisco behind Alex Smith at quarterback has been atrocious inside the red zone and it will eventually be their undoing in the playoffs.
This will be a hard hitting defensive affair as both teams will look to pin each other deep inside their own territory on offense.
Long fields lead to longer drives which lead to field goals and lower scores.
Bet Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers under 38 points.
