NFL FREE PICK: Take Oakland. The Steelers are coming off a win against the Jets and get a rest next week because they’re on a bye. They may overlook a team like Oakland, which has looked brutal in the first two weeks. The Steelers didn’t play well when they traveled cross-country in Week 1 when they lost 31-19 to the Broncos. In general, they’ve struggled when they’ve had to travel, so take the points at home with the Raiders. According to latest NFL trends, the underdog is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams.
