NFL Picks And Predictions Week 3: Steelers Vs. Raiders

After losing on the road last weekend, the Oakland Raiders return home on Sunday to host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While the Raiders are looking for their first win of the season, not many NFL analysts expect it to come against Pittsburgh. Of ESPN's 12 NFL experts, 11 picked the Steelers. Adam Schefter was the only expert to pick the Raiders. Schefter also picked the Raiders in Week 1 against the Chargers.

While one ESPN expert picked the Raiders, the CBS Sports and Yahoo! Sports analysts all picked Pittsburgh. All three Yahoo! Sports experts picked the Steelers while the eight CBS Sports analysts were also universally in favor of Pittsburgh.

Combined, 22 of the 23 analysts picked against the Raiders. The experts aren't the only ones picking the Steelers, as Pittsburgh is also the betting favorite. The Steelers are currently 3-point favorites, according to Odds Shark.
