You guys are rookies and obviously aren't fully aware of Demapples capping ability. For those of us that have been around here awhile, the one thing we all remember is that when rookies like you start bashing the sucker bet, we know that demapples has once again hit the nail on the head.

 

If you can't spot the sucker in the room, then you are the sucker. Don't be a sucker, don't take pittsburgh.

The only thing I will say is that although I do like CLE, PIT is a much better team, and have a very good chance of covering.
 
The thing I want to mention is that the loss to PIT last year I believe was game 1 before Derek Anderson got in there.
 
I still kinda want to stay away.

I'm from Cleveland and take it from me. As much as I want to see my Brownies kick the Steelers butts, taking the Browns and the points is like me loaning my ex-wife $500. I might as well kiss that $500 good-bye

Just watched Crennel talking about how 0-2 isnt so bad and this isn't a must win game. If he thinks they will lose then they will lose big.

I'm thinking Cleveland is the play here.  They have been getting roughed up by Pittsburgh and the way everyone's talking here, I'm sure this is being brought up everyday when they meet.. Their tired of being the box that gets beat up by the older brother.  I'm gonna say it again also - Cleveland started believing that they were such a better team and they got complacent in my opinion vs the cowboys.

Im not sure how providing factual counter-evidence to your commentary is bashing you. As a rookie, i didn't realize it was incumbent upon me to provide an uninformed opinion backed by emotion. Next time ill be sure to take the professional route and use nondescript ATS records to back my play.

Interesting capping strategy. Very contrarian. I'll be watching closely.

There are three game that look like a sucker bet by taking these team.  Sucker game are usually look at on Sunday near game time.  My guess it will be either 1or 2.

1. Colts
2. Saints
3. Steelers
