Wooo Woooo! The train keeps rolling through week 13 with another solid week chock full of all NFL teams in action. 9-5 through Sunday has this guy on the verge of turning back to back double digit covers, something I don’t think I’ve ever done. The Sunday games proved fruitfull as I went 7-2, while being disappointed yet again by the Chiefs but feel more violated by the refs who apparently didn’t like seeing the Chiefs ahead by 1 in the 4th. The Chargers allowed the Browns to stay in the game, which I did predict could very well be close early but I did also expect the Chargers to pull away at some point as they have been looking like they were getting into playoff form in the last few weeks. Lastly, how about the underdog covers of the 49ers and Dolphins!
Plenty to like about tonight’s game and the chances at getting the 10th win of the week. On to tonight’s game:
|Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals, 8:30p (Bengals +4.5, O/U: 43)
The Bengals are at home and while this would grant most teams a home field advatage, it’s hasn’t been quite like that for them this year. They barely beat some of the worst teams at home while getting obliterated by the Ravens early, and a close loss to the Texans. Not much confidence coming into this one as the last meeting showed us every weekness in the team. Having a lack of a running game really exposes Andy Dalton’s weak arm strength. The only strong part of this team, which may hang up the Steelers offense early, is their defense.
The Steelers come into this game with one of the most start studded rosters in the league on offense. They are a different team on the road in most cases but given the opponent, they may have more fun if they find success early in this one. During the last meeting, Big Ben threw for just over 200 yards and Bell was the main attributor with yards.
This one has potential to get ugly. Take the Steelers to cover in the under, 27-13. Colin Cowherd even liked them at -5.5!
