The Pittsburgh Steelers are four-and-a-half-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

Despite an 0-2 record so far, the Oakland Raiders are only 4-1/2 point underdogs in Week 3, as they play host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In Week 2, the Raiders were one-point favorites in Miami against the Dolphins, but wound up being dominated, and losing 35-13. So far this year, the Raiders are 0-2 -- and 0-2 against the spread.

The Steelers, meanwhile, are coming off of a 27-10 win over the New York Jets. The Steelers entered Week 2 as five-point favorites, and Pittsburgh easily covered the spread.

The over/under for the game has been set at 44. The Steelers come into Week 3 averaging 23 points per game, scoring 27 against the Jets at home, but being held to just 19 points on the road in Denver.

Oakland, meanwhile, only scored 13 points against a Miami team that looked terrible in Week 1, and only managed 14 points in a Week 1 loss to the Chargers -- with six of those points coming on field goals.
