(Cleveland +13.5) at Pittsburgh
Big Hair, Big Ass, and Big Truck Nation is feeling pretty good about themselves. Not only is their team 3-1, just a half game behind the black birds from Baltimore, but this is the week their hard headed, oblivious to "No" quarterback gets back into the swing of things.
I'm sure you're sick and tired of us preaching Cleveland, as their 1-4 record is as impressive as a cold sore, but they've been in EVERY FREAKING game they've played thus far, and we really do we like them in this spot. Having beat the Steelers straight up the last time these two teams met, and covered both contests last year, the Brownies would've covered 4 of the last 5 between these two, had the line been (13.5) each time.
The Browns are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 versus the AFC, and thru 5 games this year, are only yielding 16 points per. Some country bumpkin from Miami(Oh), isn't going to take the first month and change off from game reps, and then hop back into the thick of it, and cover two touchdowns against a divisional opponent. It ain't happening. BROWNS
Indianapolis/Washington (OVER 44)
Redskin fan knows they've had a habit of playing down to or up to their opponent. This year alone, they've struggled to score, and have squeaked out wins against Dallas, Philly, and the Pack, but lost in a shootout to the Texans, in a game in which they scored 27.
The Colts are still the Colts, Peyton Manning is still their quarterback, and although they're well under the radar, we still think they'll win their division. The Colts lowest point total thru 5 games is 19 (last week vs. the #2 ranked KC defense), yet they're still averaging 27 points per game.
The Colts have played OVER the total, in 17 of their last 22 versus NFC opponents. The Redskins' 32nd ranked defense will be yielding points Sunday night, and McNabb and the Skins will do their best to keep up, against Indy's 25th ranked D. Dating back to 1990, these two teams have played over in 8 of 9 contests, including three consecutive. Can the Redskins win another nail biter on the final play? 33-30 final.
San Diego at (St.Louis +9)
This game features three things we love to bet against: 1. A team on the back end of back to back roadies, 2. A team on the back end of back to back roadies who is also laying a monster number, and 3. A Norv Turner coached team on the back end of back to back roadies, who is also laying a monster number.
The Chargers are a team whose window of opportunity has closed. They had all the pieces in place over the past 3-4 seasons, and should've won a Super Bowl already. Their front office has been unable to check its ego at the door, hence letting a still productive LT go and not paying Vincent Jackson.
The Chargers are 0-3 SU and ATS on the road this year. They're coming off a hard fought loss in Oakland, and are probably spent from it. St. Louis will rebound from the ass whippin' they took up in Detroit, as we expect a much more fiery Ram team, who has played well in certain spots this season. This spot is one of them. Consider the money line bet as well.
(Oakland +6.5) at San Francisco
What gives, Vegas? Either you're the ultimate Al Davis hater, or you know something we don't. I'm not sure how an 0-5 team whose going nowhere, regardless of what their front office claims in text messages, is laying over a touchdown to a team who is riding the high of a huge divisional win.
Short of a week 1 blowout at Tennessee, the Raiders have played well this year and have been in every game. They're 10th in total offense, scoring almost 23 points per. The 49ers are a mess. Alex Smith can't hit the broad side of a barn, and Mike Singetary looks like he's about to become San Francisco's next zodiac killer. This game will be a borefest, but a profitable borefest for Raider Nation.
Last Week 0-3
