Steelers game today: Steelers vs. Raiders injury report, spread, over/under, schedule, live stream, TV channel
By Peter Panacy
The Steelers return home 1-0 in Week 2 and face off against the 1-0 Raiders, and Still Curtain breaks down the latest odds and how to watch.
It was a bit of a shock to see the Pittsburgh Steelers pull off the surprising Week 1 upset on the road against a heavily favored Buffalo Bills team in contention for the AFC crown this season.
But no one on Pittsburgh’s defense was shocked. This unit set the tone early and ensured the black and gold would start off the year 1-0 before heading home to face off against the Las Vegas Raiders, who are also coming off a thrilling Monday Night Football overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
Doing the Steelers a nice favor in the process.
Steelers injury report vs. Raiders Week 2
The following players were listed on Pittsburgh’s Week 2 injury report ahead of the game versus Las Vegas:
- DT Carlos Davis (knee): OUT
- CB Joe Haden (groin): questionable
- LB Devin Bush (groin): questionable
- TE Zach Gentry (ankle): questionable
Pittsburgh having a relatively clean slate of health is certainly good news, although watching how both Haden and Bush perform on the field, should they be good to go, might be necessary to help guard against Raiders tight end Darren Waller.
Steelers vs. Raiders odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 2
Already boasting home-field advantage, the oddsmakers over at WynnBET are listing Pittsburgh as a 6.5-point favorite in Week 2 against Las Vegas.
The line is -285 for the Steelers, likely predicated on the stifling defense, while the over/under is set at 47.0.
Week 1’s win over Buffalo suggests quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Co. might struggle to move the ball on offense, yet Pittsburgh’s defense should be more than capable enough of playing complementary football, giving the offense some good field position and making life easier on Big Ben and his offensive supporting cast.
Look for the home team to win out here by a score of 24-21, even though the Raiders would end up covering the spread.
