The Pittsburgh Steelers come into Sunday's game with the Oakland Raiders as favorites on the road.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be traveling to the West Coast this weekend to take on the Oakland Raiders at the O.co Coliseum.

Pittsburgh is feeling good about itself after taking out the New York Jets 27-10 at Heinz Field in the home opener. Despite missing James Harrison and Troy Polamalu in that contest, the defense was still dominant, shutting out Gang Green in the second half.

Oakland on the other hand is cold as ice. The Raiders started their season with a home loss on Monday Night Football to the San Diego Chargers before getting pummeled by the Miami Dolphins 35-13 last weekend.

The line for this game is currently set at Pittsburgh -4.5 at footballlocks.com. Since being at home is usually worth three points, the line is saying on a neutral field, the Steelers are about a touchdown better than Oakland.

Over at bovada.com, the same line is also in place, even with Pitsburgh expected to miss Polamalu and Harrison once again.
