MINTY BETS: It's time for some Sunday Night Football as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Seattle Seahawks. The Steelers are five point favorites and the total is 42. I'm Minty Bets joined by Jared Quay and Pam Maldonado and we're here to give you our favorite picks for this game. Jared, let's start with you. What is your pick for this game?

JARED QUAY: I'm picking not to watch it. I don't know. I'm not liking any of these teams. But for some reason I got a feeling an under is going to hit. Obviously, the Seahawks defense looked terrible the first couple of weeks and then they came alive the last week.

Steelers are known for defense. Both of these teams are going to try to run the ball, which is turn the clock down. And I just think 42 points isn't a lot, but I still think that it goes under, just because these are the dog fighting 16-19 games that the Steelers like playing. So I'm not going to touch a side, I'm just going to do the under.

MINTY BETS: Wow, OK. Very risky. All right, I will go next and I actually like the Seahawks plus five here. Now I know both these teams are riddled with injuries, so it's going to be an ugly game like you said, Jared, but I think Geno Smith is a great, experienced backup for Russell Wilson. Ben Roethlisberger seems to be having a really rough season and I think if Seattle can force some turnovers here, they can cover and possibly win straight up.

Seattle's offense is third in yards per play while Pittsburgh is on the opposite end of that list. So I like Seattle plus the points. Pam, what do you have for us?

PAMELA MALDONADO: I like both of your picks. I'm going with also the under on 42. What helps unders? Punting and Seahawks lead in total punts in the NFL, if you can believe it. And that's with Russell Wilson.

And now you have a backup quarterback. They have 25 total punts on the season. What also helps unders? Not scoring.

The Steelers offense, as you mentioned Minty, they are six worst in points per play. But the Steelers defense top five in limiting opponent touchdowns, 12 field goals allowed on the season instead of converted touchdowns. I like the under on 42.

MINTY BETS: We will be watching this with our eyes closed.

JARED QUAY: We're Looking for ugly football, ugly football.
