All odds current as of publication but subject to change. Check out the latest Bills-Steelersodds here.
PICK 1: Bills +2.5
The Bills have been great on the road because they’ve been great at not turning the ball over, committing just three turnovers the last eight games. The Steelers’ defensive success has been predicated on creating turnovers.
The Steelers’ overall success lately, going from 5-5 and on the ropes to 8-5 and firmly in the playoff hunt, has also been aided by a weak schedule. Devlin Hodges will find a new level of challenge here. Expect a low score, but I trust Josh Allen and Devin Singletary to make more plays.
Pick 2: Under 37 Points
Both these offenses are no match for the defenses they’ll face Sunday night. Josh Allen and his dual-threat antics can give a lot of teams fits, but the Steelers held Lamar Jackson at bay (231 total yards, with three INTs) in an overtime loss earlier this year. Hodges was average at best against the Bengals and Cardinals. Moving the ball against the Bills will be considerably tougher.
PICK 3: First Score — Bills FG
Three of the last four Bills games have opened with a field goal, and two of those were by Buffalo. The last three Steelers games have also started with three points on the board, but only twice in the last seven games (since their bye week) have the Steelers been the first to score in their games.
PICK 4: Highest-Scoring Quarter — Second
The Bills and Steelers combine to average 13 ppg in the second quarter, a couple points higher than any of the four frames. They also surrender a combined 9.7 ppg in the second, which ranks No. 1 combined in points allowed. In what could be a low-scoring game, the second looks like a good spot for both teams.
PICK 5: Bills Moneyline & Under
The defenses have the advantage regardless of which team has the ball, but the Bills have the playmakers and haven’t been deterred by playing on the road.
