The Steelers ruined plenty of people’s bet slips last week with their come-from-behind win over the Bills, while the Raiders were determined to do the same before scoring a walk-off touchdown in overtime against the Ravens.
You’d be foolish to read too much into either of those games, but that still hasn’t stopped the bookies from laying the Steelers at -5.5 in their home opener.
Both teams gave up over 400 yards defensively last week, but I think the Steelers have an edge here after the Raiders struggled to contain Lamar Jackson and Ty’Son Williams last week on the ground.
Najee Harris showed brief glimpses of why the Steelers thought so highly of him on draft day last week, and with Big Ben throwing for less than 200 yards, it wouldn’t be surprising if Mike Tomlin tries to run it down Vegas’ throat this week.
