The Pittsburgh Steelers had opened as -6.5 point favorites over the Las Vegas Raiders for their Week 2 matchup, but are now favored by 5.5 points, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Considering the 6.5-point spread was available before the Raiders played on Monday night, it is no surprise to see the line move in Las Vegas' favor after their impressive victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Interestingly enough, the line is right back to where it was last week, when the lookahead line had the Steelers as 5.5 point favorites for this game before the Week 1 games kicked off. Knowing that, it is anyone's guess where the line moves from here, as it could be argued that Pittsburgh's road win at Buffalo in Week 1 was just as impressive, if not more impressive, than the Raiders' home win to start the season.
