    You say they should have won the second game at home...except that the Pittsburgh D is better and came up big when they needed too. Sorry, the Ravens are a good team but not good enough to win the division or to beat the Steelers. I like how you say the referees are biased toward the Steelers when they clearly have been against Pittsburgh since Troy and Harrison came out publicly against the punishments handed down.
    Cant have it both ways, setting up your excuses ahead of time. It will be a close game but Pitts D will come up big as they have done before.

    Heap went out first play of the game and that huge play TP pulled was the missed blocking of his backup..
    Regardless it was a good play...

    This week is going to be a brawl just like every Raven/Steeler game...
    I dont think you can really take home field into account in this matchup. I dont think Pitt even deserves 2 seed but thats just how it goes...
    Under looks good but you never know..
    No play for me just hoping the Ravens pull through

    No, you must not understand the difference between + and -

    Steelers +3.5 would be value.

    Either team in this series +3.5 is value, a money line of +150 on either team in this series is value. Most meetings they have are close, can go either way at the end, wake up and smell the +

    I hope the Ravens pull it off but only 6 days to prepare is gonna make it tough...of course the NFL wants the Steelers and Pats to win so they scheduled it to their advantage...

    No I didn't bet the padres every game during their losing streak. Yes there were 3 games I played during that streak, but that was based upon the pitching.

    You need to reread your write up. No stats to back this play other than you think or you feel ravens are the play.

    Either way this will be a fun game to watch. Im willing to bet this game will not come down to a field goal. I believe whoever wins will win by 4 or more.

They already won in pittsburgh this year and should have won the second game at home as well. They will have trouble scoring in this game but 17 points might be enough. I dont see Big Ben doing much against this Ravens d and i think Boldin will break one to the house to stun the steelers.

    Ravens ML +160

    No disrespect, but saying "I think" more than 3 times doesn't make it so.


    No facts just your feeling.


    Best of luck!

    These 2 teams know so much about each other, I think Raven off. has improved throughout the year and pgh. is the same tough team they always are. I like the points. close game regardless of winner, if you go Balt. ml, put alittle with the points, 2 or 3 point win is a real possibly, good luck.

    i like the value in Ravens ML
    but instead of insuring that with +3.5
    i will tease it to a minimum +10.5.

    This is always a tough back and forth game. Im leaning ravens +3.5. Look at the head to head history this game is always close, the last 4 games were decided by a field goal. I don't see any reason to think this game will different, so I'm probably taking Ravens and the points.

    Easily the "black and blue" game of the weekend. Will be teasing Balt to +10.5 based on last 3 meetings of these teams. Just don't know who will be on the other half of the teaser yet. Good luck to all and keep it rolling Lakerboy...

    I am on Steeelrs ML and -2 (bought down) you can see a pic of my action in my profile pics, these games come down to who makes the biggest or most mistakes. I am counting on FLACCO to make that error , also Ravens seem to struggle to get TD's , v Cincy and 1st half v KC they seemed to struggle, they finally wokeup on the 2h @ KC. Ralty taking 2 in a row at Pitt? Hoping Pitt wins by at least 2 and no more than 15

    If the sharp books don't drop the hook LB, do you still like it?

    There's no reason for them to stay at 3.5 with over 50% of the public on the Ravens, is there?

    why would they drop the line? they are raking all that vig in. 3.5 -120 or more. if they push the line to 3, there is the possibility of a push, and the books want to clean house.

    Coming from the east coast and not far from Baltimore, I've watched the teams play against each other a lot. IMO i think the team who has the better passing game will win. Both defenses are strong against the run, but average against the pass. So do you like the speedster Mike Wallace or the beast Anquan Boldin. Personally I will take Big Ben (hard to sack) to Mike Wallace.

    I'm on Pittsburgh-3. Flacco looks bad when he gets blitzed. Pittsburgh will throw everything at him.

    Pittsburgh 34 Baltimore 10

    These two teams are way to evenly matched to even think about betting. I found a great write up of this game over at bookieassasin. It looks like some of the other guys are on Pittsburgh, but Rich Carerra breaks the game down very well and does not take a side.

    If I had to bet, you have to take the Super Bowl experienced Big Ben vs. Flacco, but with these two defenses, I don't think either one will have the gaming winning drive. It comes down to Special Teams (which I think Baltimore has the advantage) and defense (which I think the Steelers D WITH Troy Polamalu has the advantage).

    Good luck with your bets guys.
