Steelers vs. Bills odds

Update, 1/8

Point spread: Bills -10
Point total: 37.5
Moneyline: BUF -440, PIT +340

The over/under has dropped significantly over night because of the expected weather in Buffalo over the weekend. There’s supposed to be a lot of rain, snow and wind in the forecast. With two already shaky QBs that may be turnover prone, the total is way down. We should expect a lot of running plays in this matchup.

Opening odds

Point spread: Bills -9.5
Point total: 43
Moneyline: BUF -425, PIT +330

The Bills are heavy, heavy favorites at home in this matchup. Buffalo has won five in a row and the defense has been dominant over that stretch. The Bills did a good job limiting the Dolphins offense in a 21-14 win to clinch the AFC East title and 2-seed.

The Steelers have played well entering this contest as well on a three-game winning streak. QB Mason Rudolph has stepped up and has taken the starting job from Kenny Pickett. The status of T.J. Watt is likely what caused this line to be so high. Watt suffered an MCL sprain and likely won’t play in the Wild Card matchup. Pittsburgh’s defense and run game have been strengths this season. The passing game has been revitalized a bit with Rudolph and George Pickens. But it’s still a lot to ask to go into Buffalo and win.
