Steelers vs Bills Lines & Picks for Week 5 of the 2022 NFL Season

Steelers vs Bills Lines & Picks for Week 5 of the 2022 NFL Season

Week 5 of the season is upon us, and we already have several teams who are about to slip into panic mode if the losses continue to pile up. The divisions are all rather tight in the early going, thanks in large part to there being just 1 unbeaten team and 1 winless team, but for those teams sitting on just 1 win in the early going, this weekend probably marks a critical point of their season. The Pittsburgh Steelers, who have never had a losing season under coach Mike Tomlin, are one of the teams sitting on a single win, with things about to get even tougher this weekend with a road trip to face Buffalo, who many believe are the favorites to win it all this season. The Bills are certainly favorites to win this game and are in at -14. The point total for this one is set at 47. It’s time to take a look at both teams so you can place your bets against their NFL Odds.

Why bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are not an organization that has a comfortable relationship with losing, but they are starting to become a little more familiar with it this season. The Steelers are now sitting at 1-3 after gassing a 10-point lead to the Jets this past weekend. The question heading into this week is whether they will stick with Mitch Trubisky, who was yanked versus the Jets, or go with the rookie, Kenny Pickett, under center. Whatever way they decide to go, it’s fair to suggest that they are drifting into must win territory. The Steelers come into this game having gone 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games played on turf, but on the flipside, they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 5 games on turf, as well as in 8 of their last 11 following an ATS loss.

Why bet on the Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills looked like an unstoppable juggernaut through the opening 2 weeks of the season, but a loss to the Dolphins in Week 3 and a tight, come from behind win over the Ravens last weekend may just have brought them back to earth a little. While this is a game that you would expect the Bills to win, they will definitely remember that they lost to the Steelers on home field last season, so do not expect them to take this one for granted. Buffalo has proven to be a good pick against the spread when going against teams with a losing record, as they are 9-1-2 ATS in their last 12 such games. The UNDER has hit in the last 4 games where Buffalo has hosted a team with a losing road record.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I am totally not sold on the Steelers offense, which has me leaning toward the UNDER for this one. It also helps that 6 of the last 7 meetings between these two teams have ended in the UNDER. I do like Buffalo to win this one, but maybe that Steelers D can keep it relatively close.
