Vikings: What are the Chances…?

The Steelers are currently a five point favorite over the undefeated Vikings. That’s too much. If I were a betting man, I’d bet the Vikings. Don’t get me wrong. The Steelers have a good chance of winning — in fact I’m picking them to win (55 percent chance) — but even if Pittsburgh comes away with a victory, it will likely be by a narrow margin.

What gives me pause is the fact that the Steelers have been unable to put together a complete game thus far in 2009. And it’s going to take a 60-minute effort to defeat a team as good as Minnesota.

The key matchup in the game figures to be Steelers left tackle Max Starks versus Vikings DE Jared Allen.

“What are the Chances...?” is 4-2 in 2009 and 43-15 all-time.
