Why Bet on the Bills?

The Bills enter the playoffs with one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL, led by quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Allen took another leap this season, throwing for more than 4,300 yards and 29 touchdowns while also being a threat with his legs, rushing for 524 yards and 15 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Diggs remains Allen’s top target, hauling 107 receptions for 1,183 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns this year.

However, the Bills have some weaknesses on offense that could be exploited. Their running game has had ups and downs, relying heavily on Allen’s skills rather than a true passer characteristic.

Defensively, Buffalo is holding firm, allowing just 18.3 points per game. LB Terrel Bernard anchors the defense, and they create turnovers, with 3 interceptions on the year. But the defense has shown it can be beaten with strong rushing attacks that limit their rushing opportunities.

Why Bet on the Steelers?

The Steelers and their quarterback Kenny Pickett (62% in passes completed for 2,070 yards and 6 touchdown passes) will need to try to control the clock with a big dose of Najee Harris and the ground game. 

If they can keep Josh Allen off the field and avoid getting into a one-on-one struggle on offense, Pittsburgh could come off the road with a positive. However, the Bills have shown that they can win high-scoring games or tighter defensive battles all season.

The Steelers were one of the surprises this season by sneaking into the playoffs with a 10-7 record and third place in the AFC North. However, it should be noted that the team comes from winning their last 3 games of the regular season, so, they arrive with confidence to be able to give the Bills a blow at home.

Final Betting Analysis: Bills vs. Steelers

This duel has occurred in a total of 29 opportunities in the history of the NFL and at this time, the Steelers lead the series with 17 wins. The Bills, on the other hand, have managed to win in 12 opportunities.

However, the most recent match between these two teams, in the 2022/23 season, ended with a crushing victory for the Bills by 38-3.

At Gambyl Exchange, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors the Bills at 1.21, while the Steelers start at 4.42.

Seriously speaking, the Steelers have the tools to make this a tight game, but their rivals come from beating some of the best teams in the NFL in the last few weeks. We believe it’s hard that the underdog visitors are the ones capable of stopping them. In the end, the locals will prevail.

Look for a win on the Bills’ Moneyline. If you put $100 on them at 1.21, you’ll see a $21.00 win with a total payout of $121.00.
