This game was originally scheduled for Thanksgiving Day but was postponed for a week after a coronavirus outbreak in Baltimore.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic affected the pro league’s offseason, training camp, and NFL preseason.

The game went ahead when the teams played at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on a Wednesday, just as they did the previous year during the regular season.

Key players on each team included:

  • QB Ren Roethlisberger
  • QB Robert Griffin III
  • Defensive end Calais Campbell
  • Defensive tackle Brandon Williams
  • RB James Conner

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens entered NFL Week 12 having lost three of its last four games.

Baltimore running backs made it one of the NFL’s top rushing teams with a 4.9 yards per carry and 160.5 yards per game average. The Ravens also were a top-10 NFL team in third-down conversions with 45.5%.

Baltimore had an outstanding defense and ranked close to the top of the NFL in scoring defense with 19.5 points per game allowed.

The team’s total defense and pass defense against wide receivers were also excellent versus other NFL teams.

Its defense allowed an average of 333 yards per game, which ranked it 8th in the NFL. The Ravens were also highly ranked in other categories, such as No. 5 in the league for fewest touchdowns scored by offenses, by allowing 14 TDs.

The defense also held opponents to 34% in third-down conversions.

In addition, Baltimore had a solid special teams unit. Kicker Justin Tucker missed just one kick (over 50 yards) and was perfect on extra-point attempts.

Meanwhile, the special teams achieved an average of 30.4 in kick return yardage.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers were the only NFL team still undefeated with a 10-0 record atop the AFC standings. The Steelers were also 4-point underdogs when they beat the Ravens in Week 8, winning by a large average point differential.

A key factor in the team’s victory was that the Ravens played without several offensive players, including:

  • Quarterback Lamar Jackson
  • RB J.K. Dobbins
  • RB Mark Ingram
  • Tight End Mark Andrews

On defense, linebacker TJ Watt had 9 sacks, which tied him for third in the NFL, and also racked up 14 tackles for loss yardage. Meanwhile, linebacker Vince Williams had 14 tackles for a loss of yardage.

Pittsburgh had sack artists in defensive end Stephon Tuitt and linebacker Bud Dupree, who would tackle the QB behind the line of scrimmage.

Meanwhile, Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick racked up four interceptions for the season.

Head coach Mike Tomlin led the Steelers to a league-leading scoring defense and completion percentage allowed, sacks, interceptions, and quarterback rating allowed.

Steelers vs. Ravens: How to Bet

When placing NFL bets, like betting on Ravens vs. Steelers odds and betting lines, you have several options.

Proposition Bet: This bet is on a specific event or individual player in a match. These side bets are more often on individual players.

Parlays: These are accumulator bets that include more than one part known as a leg. Bettors only win the bet if they win all legs.

Teasers: Bettors can move a point spread to a more favorable line, which lowers the betting odds.

Moneyline: This straight-up (SU) bet is popular in pro leagues like the NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB. Bettors simply pick the game’s winning team.

Over/Under: This is also known as a totals bet. An oddsmaker sets a combined total score of the two teams. Then bettors must pick either “over” or “under” that score.

Here’s an example:

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns (45)

Let’s say Cincinnati beat Cleveland 24-23. In this case, the over bets win because the combined score is 47, above the projected total score.

Futures Bet: This bet is on an event after the current day, including the Super Bowl or MVP winner. In many cases, futures bets are several months away, such as at the end of the NFL season.

Live Betting: These bets are also known as play-in bets and allow bettors to wager after the opening kickoff airs on networks like NBC.

Live bets allow bettors to wager at different stages of the game, like the first half. They can place bets on changing odds as the game unfolds.

Point Spread: The points by which a team wins or loses determine the bet’s results.

Here’s an example:

Ravens -3.5 vs. Steelers +3.5

The minus sign (-) indicates the favorite of the NFL game, and the plus sign (+) indicates the underdog. In this scenario, the Ravens are the 3.5-point favorites.

The Ravens “cover the spread” if they win by four or more points. On the other hand, a Steelers bet wins if Pittsburgh loses by fewer than three points or wins outright.

You can also place bets on other NFL teams, including:

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • Buffalo Bills
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Chicago Bears
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Dallas Cowboys
  • Denver Broncos
