Take #476 Raiders Over Steelers
(NFL) Pittsburgh vs. Las Vegas, 09/24/2023 8:20 PM, Score: 23 - 18
Point Spread: -2.50 | -120.00 Las Vegas (Home)
Result: Loss
Neither team has really found a rhythm offensively yet, Pittsburgh has scored just 19 offensive points and punted 13 times, with 24 total first downs. They did beat the Browns 26-22 on Monday night behind two defensive TD's, and Pickett really hasnot lived up to the hype yet, and the Raiders are tied for last in ppg at 13.5, however we think McDaniels has a good game plan here and gets Garoppolo to protect the ball and gets Josh Jacobs to bounce back after a terrible performance vs the Bills. Remember Vegas looked terrible vs the Bills but it's hard to fault them for that as Buffalo is elite on both sides of the ball, and the Bills were coming off that terrible MNF loss to the Jets so they were ticked, and the Raiders came off an emotional week 1 victory vs the Broncos, so they were already in a let down spot have to travel to the east coast. This time Pittsburgh has to fly west, this is the Raiders home opener so they will have a ton of motivation to do well, and we like the Raiders to do well.
