The game was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Immaculate Reception, the greatest play in NFL history. However, Franco Harris’s untimely passing changed the tone of the celebration to mourning and celebrating his life.

On the field, it will also be the first test for Kenny Pickett, who has notoriously small hands for an NFL QB, in gloves and in frigid weather.

The Steelers running game mowed down the Carolina Panthers last week. The offensive line pushed the Panthers off the line of scrimmage and created running room. The Steelers earned 156 yards on the ground.

With game-time temps near zero, the running game will be as important as heavy coats and hats for the fans. Seriously, don’t be that guy on TV without your shirt.

Let’s get to it:

The Steelers’ playoff hopes were slightly boosted when Cincinnati beat New England. So, the team’s state might be a little more amped, but we’re betting the Immaculate celebration will raise the temperature, as well.

Let’s start with the simple bets. And make sure you use all of your bonus money. Don’t leave any turkey on the table. The Over/Under is 38. We love the Over tonight (-109). There’s no way either team can light it up, right? Wrong.

Believe it or not, in cold-weather games, teams often put up big points. Since 1994, in games with temps below 10 degrees, the average point total is 43.3 — one full point higher than in games played with temps above 32 degrees!

There’s something about the Raiders that has busted the Steelers for years. After numerous Steelers wins in the 1970s, it seems the Raiders’ org had the Steelers’ number, but that was the Oakland/Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders.

A warm weather team coming east to play in tundra conditions on Christmas eve? With the spectacle of the Immaculate Reception hanging over the game and the Steelers’ emotional advantage, this has Steelers’ win written all over it.

There’s a great potential for Las Vegas to have a bad game, so we also like buying up the point spread. The Steelers are +2 at BetRivers. We’re going to buy that up to +4, which pays +125.

You can parlay the Steelers bets, too. Take the Steelers straight up on the Moneyline and the Over at BetRivers (+230).

If you like the Raiders tonight, parlay the two points and the Over for a +275 payout. Click below to sign up and get the match bonus.
