49ers Vs. Steelers Odds: The Niners Are Slight Favorites

Prepare for a close one.

Tonight's Monday Night Football game between the San Francisco 49ers (10-3) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3) is suspected to be a nail-biter based on Vegas' current odds.

The 49ers first opened as one-point favorites and are now sitting at 2.5 heading into tonight's game. The odds did not open until a couple days ago due to oddsmakers' concern over Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's injury.

Known as arguably the toughest quarterback in the league, Roethlisberger sprained his left ankle during a 14-3 win over the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 8 and practiced for the first time on Friday, though he was limited. But Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has said that if Roethlisberger is healthy enough to play, he'll play.

The 49ers need a big win after a surprising 21-19 loss to the Arizona Cardinals last week. Star linebacker Patrick Willis did not practice on Friday and is still doubtful with a hamstring injury.
