|Ravens -3.5 i
Posted: 11/16/2012 12:16:35 AM
This due to the Ben injury, and the Ravens being 4-1-1 in their last 6 in Pittsburgh. They play each other twice within the month if the Ravens want to pull away and win the division this is the perfect spot to do it. Have to come in with a killer instinct no mercy against their hated rival.
This pick is not an overreaction to how the Bengals fared against the Giants, I knew it was going to happen the Giants do not play well in November and the Bengals had to win that to have any hopes at making the playoffs. Now onto this week with Ben out for who knows how long the Bengals may be able to make up some ground in their division. This is the time of year where the good teams get the job done. If the Bengals are a good team they go into Kansas City and get the job done. The Chiefs will not have the fire power to keep up with the Bengals. Call me a square all you like but I don't see how Kansas City keeps it close. Mind you I slept through the Steelers game. If my gut is not enough how bout of their 8 loses only 3 have been by 3 or less. When they lose they get blowed out (Emitt Smith)
This is a revenge + desperation game for the Chargers. They were destroying Denver until it all came unglued for them. This is a game they have to have if they have any chance of making the post-season. Denver will probably win this game but it wont come that easy.
This one scares me the most. This is the to good to be true line of the week for me. The Bucs are on fire right now, and the Panthers well we all know how they are doing. This is a spot where the Panthers should show up after last weeks loss at home but I don't think it is going to happen. The Bucs have the resurging Saints breathing down their neck, and this is a game that can be the difference at the end of the season.
