UPDATE: The Bills versus Steelers game has been postponed until Monday at 4:30 PM due to inclement weather in Buffalo on Sunday. What follows is the original write up previous to the postponement.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the biggest underdogs in the NFL on Wild Card Weekend, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth betting on.

A recent trend for the Buffalo Bills -- Pittsburgh's opponent in the first round of the playoffs -- suggests that the Steelers may be in a great spot to cover the spread.

Buffalo is a dreadful 0-7 against the spread in its last seven games as a double-digit favorite.

Pittsburgh is a much different team from early in the season, as Mason Rudolph has really gotten the team's offense going over the final three weeks of the regular season.

However, the Bills have been playing some of their best football as well, storming back from a 6-6 record to win the AFC East this season.

Here's a look at the latest odds for this game:

The Bills trend isn't the only one that bettors should consider when wagering on this game.

It certainly puts the Steelers in a good spot, but there is even more reason to like them as an underdog this week.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is 57-34-5 ATS as a head coach as an underdog, the best mark since he took over in 2007.

That trend has continued this season, with the Steelers covering the spread in six of their 10 games as underdogs in the 2023 campaign.

While oddsmakers may expect this to be a lopsided game, don't be shocked if the Steelers are able to hang around.
