Bills are NFL’s largest Wild Card favorite over Steelers

The oddsmakers see the Buffalo Bills as a pretty safe bet to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild-Card round.

According to sportsbooks including BetMGM, the Bills (11-6) are 10-point favorites over the Steelers (10-7) ahead of their Wild-Card clash at Highmark Stadium on Sunday. That spread is by far the largest of the NFL’s upcoming weekend. 

In a twist, the points total has also swung all the way in one direction.

The over/under of 34.5 is by far the lowest of the upcoming playoff weekend. That’s because of poor weather slated to pass through western New York during the game.

A couple of tough decisions ahead.

Head-to-head, most favor Buffalo over Pittsburgh. However, the large spread does make picking a winner much more difficult. Especially because of the Bills, who have only a 7-9-1 record against the spread this season.

Meanwhile, the Steelers’ record matches their ATS record: 10-7.

Regarding the points, both teams have failed to hit their totals in games often this season. Buffalo and Pittsburgh share a 6-11 record against their point totals from this year… but again, 35.5 is very low…

And finally, the moneyline sits at Bills (-550) and Steelers (+400).
