As long as Mitch Trubisky is under center, the Steelers can't be trusted. When TJ Watt was healthy, Pittsburgh could rely on a stellar defense to overcome pitiful QB play, but the run defense looks awful without its leader. As a result, I expect a big game from the Jets on the ground and think they have value at any spread above 3.

Joe Flacco certainly has his limitations as well, but a potential Zach Wilson return gives New York value. If Wilson returns, I expect the spread to close right at a field goal. If he doesn't, then we won't lose any value on the number. Thus, lock the Jets in now at +3.5 and you're good either way.

When you've got guys that can do THAT to defenders, your offense should be alright. Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore will benefit from having a better quarterback under center, but the biggest reason to back the Jets is their strong tandem in the backfield.

Pittsburgh allowed 171 rushing yards to the Browns, so this is Michael Carter and Breece Hall's best chance yet to shine. I'll be targeting their props this week, but for now I'm comfortable backing the Jets in a bounce-back performance.

New York is 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last four games as road underdogs, while the Steelers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine as home favorites. Expect both trends to continue as the Jets keep things close on the road once again.
