The Pittsburgh Steelers just suffered their first loss of the season in Week 13, so expect a very eager Steelers unit that will face Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills this coming Sunday. The Bills can make the race to the top spot of the AFC with a win over the Steelers, so that’s another spicy narrative for this contest, as Buffalo is among those looking to catch Pittsburgh atop the conference standings. Check out our preview of this game below.

Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+2.5)
Regular Season Record: 11-1
The Steelers have not played great football of late, and their 23-17 home loss to the Washington Football Team was merely something that was bound to happen for Pittsburgh. However, the Steelers remain a dangerous team that probably just needed a smack in the head to get things straight again. The Steelers have every reason to play hard despite an impressive record, as they are in the midst of a battle with the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and the Cleveland Browns for the top seed in the AFC. Ben Roethlisberger passed for 305 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 33-of-53 completions against Washington. Big Ben, with the quality of weapons around him, can punch Buffalo’s defense in the mouth. The Bills just allowed backup quarterback Nick Mullens to rack up over 300 passing yards last week.
The Steelers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-2.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-3
Josh Allen was on top of his game in Buffalo’s 34-24 road win over the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. Allen showed why he should be an MVP candidate, as he passed for 375 yards and four touchdowns on 32-of-40 completions. It was as clean of a performance as you’d see from anyone this season, and Allen will look to carry that momentum against the Steelers. The Bills will bring with them into Week 14 an offense that is averaging 27.8 points and 378.8 total yards per game — both top 10 in the NFL, so far this season. The Bills are great at controlling possessions, in large part because they are tops in the league in third and fourth-down conversions. They went 4 of 9 on third downs against the Niners. Complementing Buffalo’s offense is a defense that is seventh overall with 1.6 takeaways per contest.
The Bills are 4-2 against the spread in their last six home games.
The Steelers win, 26-24.
