Hey guys back for another week of NFL starting with Thursday Night Football.
This was an interesting game to cap...I really dug deep into this game and tried my best to find things supporting the Titans here and while there are a few things that say they COULD do better than what their record shows I just cant justify betting on them.
With that said I have two plays for Thursday night and will probably add another one at Half.
Pittsburgh Steelers 1H -3
Pittsburgh Steelers -6
Now I hate playing heavily bet favorites on primetime games so trust me I tried to find reasons not to but the titans are just playing awful right now. They cannot drive the ball at all, Chris Johnson has not done anything since he got his money their Defense is one of the worst in the league their is nothing going for this team right now. Now I understand the Steelers tend to drop the ball night time on the road and also on primetime games, and that Tenn will want a win here, but they just dont have right game plan right now to do it.
I see Pitt coming out early and getting a lead (like they did against the Eagles) which is why I bet them -3 for the first half. But I also think they will hang onto the lead for the game this time. The Eagles have a much better defense than the titans do right now and Pitt wont have as much trouble moving the ball here.
I understand that Pitt is banged up but when is this team not banged up. They are rarely completely healthy and I dont think injuries will be to big of a deal in this game. Tenn wont be able to score at Pitt will win easily here. Also the short week for Pitt isnt as big of a deal this week because they just came off of a bye last week so they are a bit more rested than Tenn who has been getting beat up on weekly since the start of the season.
Pitt wins this game 27-17
