Pittsburgh Steelers at Las Vegas Raiders Preview & Picks

Pittsburgh are tipped to cover as an underdog on the road.

The Steelers defense was opportunistic last time out and is now facing a quarterback prone to turnovers.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers are 6-3-0 ATS in their last 9 road games
  • Pittsburgh are 7-4-1 ATS in their last 12 non-division games
  • Las Vegas are 4-8-0 ATS in their last 12 non-division games
  • The Under has cashed in 4 of the last 5 meetings

Head To Head

  • Las Vegas Raiders lead the all-time series 17-14
  • Pittsburgh Steelers won 13-10 when the teams last met in December 2022

Pittsburgh Steelers Form

Pittsburgh are heading out on the road for the first time this season looking to build on a Week 2 win.

The Steelers opened the season at home with a tough assignment against San Francisco, and it proved to be a night for the offense.

Kenny Pickett threw two interceptions and was sacked five times as they were blown out by the 49ers, 30-7.

The Pittsburgh offense splutter again in Week 2, against division rivals, but the defense stepped up to win the game.

The Steelers defense had two touchdowns on defense, including a game-winning fumble return by TJ Watt that clinched a 26-22 victory.

Las Vegas Raiders Form

Las Vegas come into Sunday Night Football with a 1-1 record after two underwhelming offensive displays.

The Raiders opened up with back-to-back road games and managed just 27 total points over those two matchup.

First up was a divisional clash with Denver and it took a strong defensive effort to snatch a 17-16 victory.

Las Vegas failed to improve offensively a week later, and this time the defense did not come to the rescue.

The Raiders gave up five touchdowns and failed to put up a single point in the second half as they were blown out in Buffalo, 38-10.

Verdict

This is likely to be something of a defensive grind and turnovers could be the key in this one.

Pittsburgh have shown their opportunistic streak through the first two weeks, so we like them in the role of underdog.
