We’ve entered the fourth season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.

Starting bankrolls have reset to $10,000, with the maximum bet being to win $1,000 and the minimum wager $300. Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-2016 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-2015.

Pittsburgh Steelers minus-7 vs. Tennessee Titans: $650 to win $600

The Steelers' offense hasn't been as explosive as expected this season at just 20.8 points per game (19th in the league), but this is a good opportunity for Pittsburgh to find its stride.

Tennessee can't rush the quarterback. At all. The Titans rank dead last in the NFL in sack percentage, as they bring down the opposing quarterback on just 3.7 percent of passing plays. Picture Ben Roethlisberger dropping back, scanning the field, looking, looking, patting the ball, looking some more, setting his feet, and then finally slinging a pass deep downfield. In your head, is his intended receiver wide open? If you answered yes, then you should probably take Pittsburgh to cover this line.

Current Standings: Granger (9-9, $11,675), Brewer (14-12, $10,070), Keefer (12-12-1, $9,641), Grimala (7-7, $9,055)
