Steelers vs. Bills Prediction
Bettors only have to lay a field goal to cover with the Steelers today against the Bills but is the spread too good to be true?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bills are now 3-point home underdogs versus the Steelers after opening as a 2-point dog earlier in the week. As for the total, the number hit the board at 47.5 and has been bet down to 45.5.
STEELERS KEY TRENDS: December has been the Steelers' month to shine. They're 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games in December and are 4-1-1 against the number in their last six games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. They're also 13-6-1 at the betting window in their last 20 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous contest.
BILLS KEY TRENDS: After blowing a double-digit lead in the second half of their loss to the Raiders last Sunday, the Bulls are now 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall. They're also 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus AFC opponents and are 1-4 at the betting window in their last five games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous contest.
OUR PREDICTION: Bettors only have to lay three points to take a Steelers team with everything to play for that is taking on a Bills squad that collapsed last Sunday in Oakland? What's the catch? Something feels fishy with this line. Buffalo is a tough place to play, especially in December, and the Bills are as healthy now as they have been in quite a while, with LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins both back in action. If Tyrod Taylor can rebound from a poor performance in Oakland, then the Bills will keep this game close at the end and have an opportunity to pull off the upset. With 75% of the betting public on Pittsburgh today, I'll fade the public with the home dog.
