Betting market: The Steelers are not a popular pick, as bettors aren’t willing to lay all those points following Pittsburgh’s loss to the Chargers. I’m sure James Conner’s injury hasn’t helped their case, either.
Trends to know: Home underdogs of 10 or more points have gone 46-33 (58%) against the spread since 2003. Late in the season (December and January), these teams have gone 25-8 (76%) ATS, according to our Bet Labs data.

Ben Roethlisberger is 0-3 ATS in Oakland, making it one of two places that he has no career ATS wins and three ATS losses. The other is Tennessee.
What differentiates Oakland? He’s 1-2 straight-up in Tennessee, but 0-3 SU in Oakland. — Evan Abrams
