Citizens of the Keystone State beware. One day before we celebrate Halloween, the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers are scheduled to meet at Lincoln Financial Field to play a football game. Let’s hope that there are no injures on either roster and that no fans are injured in the days that lead up to or follow the game.

The Birds and Black and Gold aren’t rivals per se. They typically only meet once during a four-year period, and they only meet this year because, as you know, every team plays 17 games now. There is something that you need to be made aware of though if you aren’t already privy to how this works.

These are two stories teams with two rabid fan bases. Whenever they cross paths, cross-state chatter ensues and fireworks follow. It would be wise to expect more of the same.

Eagles versus Steelers Odds Week 8

According to FanDuel, the Philadelphia Eagles are favored by 10.5 points. The moneyline is -520 for Philly compared to +400 for the Steelers. The Over/Under is set at 44.5 points. We’d probably bet the under on the point total, but everything makes sense in terms of the numbers presented.

Every look at the Steelers and each attempt to watch them operate on offense leads to the same question. How on Earth is this team going to score points? They’re solid on defense, but eventually, every good defensive unit wears down if overworked on game days. Just give Pittsburgh’s most recent loss a gander if you need evidence of that theory.

Kenny Pickett is in a good situation. He couldn’t have landed with an organization that’s any more patient or stable. He’ll need that just as Ben Roethlisberger needed the same courtesies back in 2004.

As of right now, the Eagles are the better team, and we for all intents and purposes expect them to win this one going away. As stated earlier, the 10.5-point total makes perfect sense to us. Final score: Eagles 27, Steelers 13
