San Francisco vs Pittsburgh: 49ers Travel Cross-Country to Battle the Steelers
Making a West to East road trip, San Francisco rolls into Pittsburgh as part of the early action on the National Football League Week Two betting board at the YouWin online sportsbook. The 49ers are fresh off a solid performance at home against the Minnesota Vikings while the Steelers look to rebound from an opening night loss on the road to the New England Patriots. Kickoff for this NFC West vs AFC Central clash is slated for 1:00 PM ET on September 20, 2015, at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. We like the Steel City Crew in this contest.
Pittsburgh is shorthanded and looking for answers on defense
Call it the “luck of the draw” but someone had to face an angry QB Tom Brady and the rest of New England Patriots squad in Week One and Pittsburgh drew the short straw. The Steelers 28-21 loss at Gillette Stadium looks closer than it actually was as the Pats were up 28-14 before Pittsburgh scored with two seconds left on the game clock. While missing RB Le’Veon Bell and WR Martavis Bryant hurts, both players are under NFL imposed suspensions, the Steelers still have plenty of weapons on offense in this contest. The Steel City defense keeps us from loading up on this contest.
San Francisco 49ers: West to East travel following a late MNF contest is a tough task
While the Steelers have had ten days to lick their wounds, San Francisco has had just six days to enjoy their 20-3 smothering of the Minnesota Vikings during the late game Monday Night Football action in Week One. Following a full shift of players and coaches in the offseason – the 49ers NFL 2015 season forecast was not a good one. Some of that talk was put to rest after Niners RB Carlos Hyde piled up 182 total yards and two touchdowns versus the Vikings. The defense played their part as well as Minnesota was held to just 302 total yards. We still aren’t sold on San Francisco.
Pittsburgh vs San Francisco: NFL Week two Prediction: While it’s not a “be all – end all” the 49ers making the cross-country trek to play an east coast contest is tough task here. The journey is complicated by the fact that the Steelers have had four extra days of rest and game-planning time. We are backing the Steel City Crew with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted on the betting board at the YouWin online sportsbook. Connect to YouWin via the odds image below.
