Raiders vs Steelers Predictions & Odds

Posted: Dec 20, 2022Last updated: Dec 20, 2022

The Las Vegas Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers will meet this Saturday, Dec. 24, at 8:15 p.m. ET in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception.

Both teams come into this matchup at 6-8 on the season and with an outside shot at making the playoffs. Neither side has an easy path there, but Las Vegas is in a slightly better position.

Raiders vs Steelers Odds

As of Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 1 p.m. ET, the Steelers are listed as three-point favorites at Caesars Sportsbook. With Pittsburgh having home-field advantage in this matchup, it’s not surprising to see sportsbooks giving them a slight edge.

Raiders vs Steelers Prediction

Steelers 26, Raiders 21

The Steelers have impressed in recent weeks, going 4-2 since their bye in Week 9. The offense has seen a significant uptick in production during that time, averaging 21.8 points over their last six games compared to just 15 through the first eight.

That bodes well for their chances of putting up a fight against a Raiders defense that ranks 23rd in points allowed per game while struggling against the pass.

With that said, Las Vegas should keep pace with ease. Davante Adams remains one of the best wideouts in the NFL, and Josh Jacobs‘ 11 rushing touchdowns are one off from his career-high.

I still don’t see this game being too high-scoring, but each team should have enough success on that end of the field for the Over to hit. Ultimately, though, I like the Steelers to hold on and take this one en route to their seventh win of the year.
