The betting market seems to be of the belief Vegas avenges that defeat in their home opener with points managing to hit the board. This is an extremely winnable game for both sides evidenced by the online sportsbook initially opening the game at a pick ‘em.

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, the Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Las Vegas Raiders from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV. Kickoff time for Sunday Night Football is set for 8:20 p.m. ET with television coverage on NBC. The lookahead betting lines for this AFC showdown hit the board with Pittsburgh lined a pick ‘em and the total set 41.5. Though Pittsburgh has taken in 60 percent of the bets and 56 percent of the money according to midweek wagering reports, the pointspread has moved in the direction of the home team with the Steelers bumped up to 2.5-point underdogs. Reverse line movement anyone?! The Steelers proved to be a winning investment away from Heinz Field a season ago in going 5-4 SU and 6-3 against the closing NFL odds with the under cashing on five occasions and an average of 38.8 points scored. Though a high majority of the written bets and taken money has come in support of the under for this tilt with the Raiders, the O/U has jumped 1.5-points to 43 letting it be known that reverse line movement has infiltrated the total market as well. The thinking behind the move just might be the fact that both running games will be able to have their way with each defense ranked in the bottom third of the league at stopping the run through two weeks of play. Najee Harris is in dire need of a good showing, and the Vegas run D just might prove to be the gift he so desperately needs. Same goes for Josh Jacobs who will get the pleasure of running up against Pittsburgh’s league-worst run defense that’s been carved up since Cameron Heyward went down with an injury in the Week 1 home clash against the 49ers.

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 2 Recap

Nothing like Monday Night Football in the Steel City where Pittsburgh has won a gazillion games in a row dating back to before any of us were ever born. All jokes aside, Mike Tomlin’s crew once again circled the wagons with the lights shining their brightest to score the huge 26-22 comeback win over the division rival Browns to get into the win column for the first time in the 2023-24 NFL betting season. The end result ended up costing the online sportsbook with 64 percent of the money backing the Yellow and Black to close out the week. That being said, the win couldn’t have been any more fluky with the defense outscoring the offense in the touchdown department. The first score occurred when Alex Highsmith pick-sixed Deshaun Watson on the game’s very first play propelling Pittsburgh to an immediate 7-0 lead nine seconds into the match. The second occurred midway through the fourth quarter with the Steelers trailing 22-19. Highsmith strip-sacked Watson and the ball was scooped up by T.J. Watt which led to the defensive end’s first career touchdown. Save for a 71-yard touchdown strike to George Pickens, Kenny Pickett wasn’t able to get the offense going with it combining for 255 yards and only nine first downs. It managed a 4-of-14 showing on third down and never once reached the Browns red zone. OC Matt Canada still has plenty work to do with this unit. Either that or he needs to finally be kicked to the curb to let someone with a fresh outlook take over. This garbage product is way past being stale!

The Rooney family has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1933. Original owner Art Rooney bought the franchise after hitting a big bet on a horse race. As incredible as it sounds, the Steelers were not a success in the first four decades under Rooney’s ownership. In fact, they were a laughingstock. From 1933 through 1971, the Steelers had one playoff appearance.

In 1972 the franchise saw a dramatic turnaround that has lasted until today. Pittsburgh made the playoffs as AFC Central champions. In the 1972 AFC divisional playoffs, the Steelers beat the Oakland Raiders with the famed “Immaculate Reception.” The franchise took off with eight consecutive playoff appearances and four Super Bowl titles.

Stability is the hallmark of the Steelers. Since 1969 they have had three head coaches. Mike Tomlin has served in that role since 2007.
