Steelers vs. Raiders 2013 odds: Pittsburgh lays points on the road

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The Steelers have won two in a row and suddenly look dangerous in the AFC North.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will try to win their third consecutive game when they square off against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon at O.co Coliseum.

The Steelers are 2.5-point favorites over Oakland, with an over/under of 40.5, according to OddsShark.com.

Pittsburgh looked dead and buried at 0-4, but has rebounded with two conference wins over the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens. At 2-4, the Steelers have a chance to climb further toward the .500 mark on the road. Pittsburgh finally was able to run the ball effectively last Sunday, gaining 141 yards on the ground with 4.9 yards per carry.

Oakland is coming off a bye week, helping it get healthy after having all sorts of issues along the offensive line. Center Stefen Wisniewski should be ready to play, a huge boost to the group.

The Raiders are last in the league in passing yardage per game, averaging 191.7 yards through the air.
