Najee Harris Over Rushing Yards
The Raiders are getting absolutely gashed on the ground through two games, so I’d expect some positive regression is looming for a Steelers team that is struggling in their own right on the ground. I like Harris to go over his rushing yards prop tonight. This is a great buy-low spot after facing top defenses in the 49ers and Browns.
STEELERS VS. RAIDERS INJURY REPORT
NFL teams finalize their injury reports two days before a game and denote whether a player is questionable, doubtful, or out. Practice participation is also logged throughout the week. Here are the Steelers injury report and the Raiders injury report for this week.
Starters On The Injury Report
Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick was released from the hospital with a chest injury after his big collision with Nick Chubb Monday night. This is an injury worth monitoring as the week progresses, as he is the anchor of the Steelers secondary.
Raiders DT Bilal Nichols is nursing a hamstring injury suffered in Week 2 against the Bills.
STEELERS OFFENSE VS. RAIDERS DEFENSE
As most Steelers fans have predicted, Matt Canada’s offense has looked dreadful through two weeks. However, they can right the ship in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Through two weeks, the Raiders rank 31st in defensive EPA and 31st in rushing success rate. A person could argue that number is a bit inflated after playing the Bills, but the issue with that is Buffalo doesn’t have much interest in running the ball, yet still managed 5.2 yards per carry. That said, this could be a chance for the Steelers ground game to get going Sunday night.
Canada’s offense has sputtered early on, frequently finding themselves in second and long scenarios due to Najee Harris getting stuffed at the line. Raiders defensive tackle Bilal Nichols exited the game against the Bills with a hamstring injury. This should be monitored throughout the week, as he’s the team’s best interior lineman against the run. Las Vegas sorely misses Andrew Billings, the veteran defensive tackle who departed to Chicago this offseason to anchor their run defense.
RAIDERS OFFENSE VS. STEELERS DEFENSE
Through two weeks of play, the Raiders offensive line has graded out as the best pass-blocking unit in the league (via PFF). In fact, their pass block win rate ranks second in the league, only behind the Chiefs. This number may be inflated, however, and we could see regression here, as Leonard Floyd is the best edge rusher the Raiders have faced through two weeks. For reference, virtually this same offensive line finished 10th in pass block win rate a year ago. Jermaine Eluemunor, the Raiders starting right tackle, gets his first major test of the season with T.J. Watt coming to town.
The Steelers’ secondary is a massive concern in this game if Watt can’t get home and cause pressure. Starting cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Levi Wallace have allowed 92 and 98 receiving yards, respectively. They’ve specifically been burned in man coverage, as Peterson has already yielded two receiving touchdowns in man, tied for the most in the league. If this trend continues, rookie Joey Porter Jr. may see more playing time sooner rather than later. Regardless of the coverage scheme, I’d expect McDaniels to exploit Peterson in the passing game.
REASONS TO BET THE OVER/UNDER
I like this one to go over, as I see this as a get-right spot for the offenses. Pittsburgh’s run defense has been awful to start the year, getting gashed and allowing explosive runs. Conversely, the Raiders can be had on the ground, and I’d expect Canada to exploit this and set Pickett up for success in third and short scenarios.
Ultimately, I like the Steelers to cover this one. Their offense is in a get-right spot after an abysmal performance on Monday Night Football against the Browns. Best of luck betting SNF odds!
