Raiders @ Steelers Pick and Prediction | 12/24 | 8:15 PM EST
Derek Carr will try to reverse his terrible track record in freezing temperatures, which stands at 1-7 when the weather drops below 40 degrees and 0-4 when it’s below 32 degrees. Pittsburgh is great at stifling the run, therefore the game will be in his freezing hands.
Kenny Pickett is expected to contribute to Pittsburgh’s rushing attack in his comeback for this matchup. In three of their last four games, the Steelers’ rushing attack has topped 150 yards. Meanwhile, the Raiders’ rushing defense just got trampled by the Patriots. The Steelers are the better team due to their stronger coaching staff and home field advantage vs a team that obviously plays in a dome.
THE PICK: STEELERS -2.5 (-110)
