The Las Vegas Raiders and the Pittsburgh Steelers meet in week 16 NFL action from Acrisure Stadium on Saturday night.

The Las Vegas Raiders will look to build on their 30-24 win over New England in their last game. David Carr has thrown for 3,348 yards, 23 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 61.2% passing while Josh Jacobs leads the Raiders in rushing with 1,495 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Davante Adams leads the Raiders with 86 grabs and 1,275 receiving yards with 12 touchdowns while Mack Hollins has 628 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Denzel Perryman has a team-high 79 total tackles while Maxx Crosby has a team-high 11.5 sacks this season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will hope to build on a 24-16 road win over Carolina last time out. Kenny Pickett has thrown for 1,797 yards, 4 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 65% passing while Najee Harris leads the Steelers in rushing with 790 rushing yards this season. Diontae Johnson leads Pittsburgh with 77 grabs for 745 receiving yards while Pat Freiermuth has 630 receiving yards and George Pickens has 643 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Myles Jack has a team-high 100 total tackles including 59 solo tackles while Alex Highsmith has a team-high 11 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick has 4 interceptions this season.

Las Vegas is 3-14 ATS in their last 17 road games against a team with a losing home record and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in week 16 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games against a team with a losing home record. Pittsburgh is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 home games.

Well that was interesting as Las Vegas somehow pulled out the miracle turnover, but I’m not reading too much into it as that loss was more about New England making a bonehead play more than anything else. Pittsburgh’s got some momentum cooking here and despite the fact that they’d need a lot to go their way, they still have an outside shot at cracking the postseason spots in the AFC wild card hunt. I’ll lay the points with the Steelers here.
