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.

The Raiders have gotten 55% of bets and 80% of the cash as of writing (see live data here), moving from +11.5 to +10 since opening. Mark Gallant

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.

The Raiders covered as 14-point home dogs to the Chiefs last week. John Ewing

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
