A key AFC matchup will take place in Miami on Sunday as the Dolphins take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Miami comes into the game with a 3-2 record (3-2 ATS), while Pittsburgh is 4-1 on the season (4-1 ATs). The game is set to get underway at 1 PM EST.
The Steelers handled the suspension of QB Ben Roethlisberger with relative ease, going 3-1 in his absence. His return last week made the team look like a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Big Ben tossed 3 touchdowns in a 28-10 win over Cleveland and rated his performance as a B-. That is scary news for the rest of the league if he continues to improve as the season goes on. They feature the number one ranked defense against the run at a paltry 63.6 yards per game allowed. The team is also ranked first in the NFL, allowing a scant 12 points per game. With Roethlisberger back in the fold, the team looks even more dangerous if they only need to put up 2 touchdowns every week to win.

Miami comes into this game after a big win last week. The team knocked of Green Bay at Lambeau by a score of 23-20 in overtime. The Dolphins enter this game as a bit of puzzle, having gone 3-0 on the road, but 0-2 at home so far. The team really has not done anything particularly well and has seen the Wildcat formation basically die this season as teams have adjusted to its nuances. Miami is 24th in the league in points scored per game and 23rd in points allowed. In some ways, it is surprising that they are 3-2 but they have won some close games at the end. Nobody on the team has more than 2 touchdowns and nobody has run for even 300 yards yet on the season.

Steelers vs. Dolphins Prediction for Week 7:
Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – The Steelers are one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl now as they feature one of, if not the best defense in the NFL. On top of that, they have a motivated and focused Roethlisberger back under center. On the other side of the field, something peculiar is going on with Miami at home. They are 0-2 at home this season and are 15-41-1 in their last 57 home games ATS. Look for the Steelers to keep up their momentum in this game and drop the Dolphins to an even worse home record.
Game Total Prediction (TOP PLAY) – Pittsburgh has been absolutely stingy on defense so far this year, allowing just 12 points per game to their opponents. In the past few years (decades?), the team has relied on having a tough defense and playing in lower scoring games. On the other side, the total has gone under in 24 of the Dolphins’ last 34 home games against a team with a winning record. Look for a low scoring game in this one.
