In what should be an entertaining contest, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers will clash in a Preseason Week 2 game Thursday night game at Lambeau Field that has the following NFL lines from our best USA sportsbooks;

PACKERS STEELERS
Moneyline
+150 -170
Spread

Total
42.5 42.5

The current public NFL consensus is in favor of the Packers with a -170 moneyline.

Coming off a 31-14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in their preseason opener, the 1-0 Steelers will be looking for their second straight road win as they enter this matchup as (+3) underdogs according to our top-rated sportsbooks.

In their last win, the combination of quarterbacks in Mason Rudolph and Joshua Dobbs threw for 192 passing yards with one touchdown to one pick. In the air, it was receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Damoun Patterson that combined for 148 yards on seven receptions with two touchdowns. It was an impressive opening win as Pittsburgh scored in every quarter while the defense gave the Philadelphia offense fits.

On the Packers side of the ball, they too are coming off a victory as they disposed of the Tennessee Titans by a 31-17 score to give them a preseason home opening win. Backup quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle performed well with 264 passing yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Outside of Brett Hundley throwing a pick, the Packers have to be pleased with their opening performance finding at least one touchdown in three of the four quarters.

Heading into this matchup, the Steelers have won five of their last seven preseason games, while Green Bay as been equally impressive winning seven of their last nine preseason games all leading to what should be an exciting game.

Prediction/Pick

Two football teams that have played well over the years in preseason, we should expect each of these teams to play hard as role players fight to make the team.
