The Pittsburgh Steelers are just one-score favorites this week, but an overwhelming amount of experts are taking them over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Steelers hold a few advantages over the Eagles this Sunday. Pittsburgh has been one of the healthiest teams in the league this year, while Philadelphia has suffered some major injuries in the early going. As a result, just two of Mike Tomlin’s players could be sitting out this Sunday, while a handful of Eagles starters may not take the field.

When it came time for oddsmakers to set the line for this game, it wasn’t surprising to see that the Steelers were 7-point favorites, courtesy of The Action Network.
