Betting Impact:

The Steelers had opened as -6.5 point favorites, and were quickly bet down to -5.5 earlier in the week after Las Vegas finished a Monday night upset of the Ravens. However, Jacobs' injury news has caused this line to shoot right back up to -6.5. Jacobs ran for just 34 yards on ten carries in their Week 1 win, but are considered a much less explosive offense now that Kenyan Drake will handle the primary running back duties.
