No Rest? No Problem.

Steelers ML (-108, FanDuel)

Since Mike Tomlin became the head coach in 2007, the Steelers have gone 32-21-1 SU when playing at a rest disadvantage. That means they're winning 60.4% of the time on a short week, which is the exact situation they find themselves in this week after beating Cleveland on Monday Night Football.

If we alter the sample size to see how Pittsburgh has performed over the last four seasons following a MNF appearance, Tomlin's squad is 5-1-1 SU since 2019. It's one loss came in a divisional matchup against the Ravens who won 26-24 in overtime. However, in those five wins, the Steelers are beating their opponents by an average of 6.2 points per game. In other words, when they win, they're more than likely also covering the spread.

On the Raiders side, since moving to Vegas in 2020, they're just 3-6 SU (33.3%) when playing at a rest advantage. Although, with this being their first home game of the season, I think we could see a better performance than what they've shown in this situation in previous years. So, with Sunday's line so short, I'd prefer to pay a little more juice and take the Steelers on the moneyline in what is expected to be a very tight game.
