Sunday Night Football: Steelers vs Raiders, Odds & Picks: Jimmy G Shreds Steelers cover

The Pittsburgh Steelers are in Sin City for some Sunday Night Football as they played the Raiders in Allegiant Stadium.

Both teams head into tonight’s game with a 1-1 record. The Steelers beat the Browns on Monday Night, but were man-handled by the 49ers in Week 1. This will be Pittsburgh’s first road game.

On the other sideline, the Raiders beat the Broncos in Week 1 at Denver, in a 17-16 snooze fest. Last week they hosted the Buffalo Bills, and were blown out of their own stadium, 38-10. The Bills looked much better than they did in Week 1.

Let’s break down tonight’s game!

Steelers Raiders Sunday Night Football Prediction Picks

In this prime time game between two mediocre teams, I lean with the favorite at home with the more experienced QB.

Yes, Jimmy G is on a new team and has not looked great so far, but neither have Kenny Pickett and the Steelers.

This is picking a “lesser of the two evils” in my opinion, and I guess I’ll lay the juice on ML with Las Vegas.

Mike Tomlin is always solid on the road, but I think the Raiders find a way to pull this off against the Steelers at home.

One could even call this a “bounce back spot at home” for the Raiders… we all love that narrative.

The Pick: Raiders ML (-150) BetOnline

Jakobi Meyers over 4.5 Receptions (-105) Bovada

Steelers Raiders Sunday Night Football Prediction Picks

Jakobi Meyers scored for us on Week 1, but he didn’t play in Week 2 due to a concussion.

Meyers caught 9 of his 10 targets in Week 1 for 81 receiving yards and 2 TDs. He was on the field for 44 of the offenses’ 55 snaps, and led the team in targets and receptions.

Meyers is the clear #2 option behind Davante Adams, but he showed out and established some chemistry with Garoppolo in Denver. I think Jimmy G looks his way plenty tonight with some quick passes against this Steelers’ secondary.

Five catches seems way too low for essentially even money, so I’ll take that, and sprinkle on Meyers to score.

Bonus Pick: Meyers Anytime TD (+240)
