    I am liking the Ravens to win in Pittsburgh this weekend.

    I know the books are giving the Ravens no shot and its hard to bet against the Steelers and there referees but i think the Ravens find glory this weekend. This is a quietly determined team that isnt on the Radar but i really think they will come well prepared and win this game. 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, you are wrong this time. Unless there's some injuries/changes that come up.

    Pit ML is the play next week.

    It's a 3 or 3.5 spread. How are the books giving Baltimore no shot?

    Baltimore blew their load already.

    Pit will do what they always do.

    btw, I have lots of Baltimore futures with points and real money so I won't mind if you are right.

    balt was +2 in pitt earlier in the year but ben didnt play. the fact they are giving the hook for balty is concerning for me. anyways yisser im on balty regardless. at +600 to win the afc they have value. steelers are +300 and they travel the same road as balty so i guess the books think the ravens road ends here.

    I could never bet on a public road dog unless this line hits -2.5

    Ravens are not going to win. Big Ben will carry the team to the win

    I like Ravens chances too, but +3.5 looks like a better way to go.

    I'm liking the total on this one. The Baltimore defense is not what it used to be, and I think both teams will score some points. Over 36.5 is an early lean.

    sometimes that week off can backfire. I like the Ravens as well.

    When was the last time the public was against the steelers?

    I'm very curious.

    So you'll take the ravens at +2.5 but you won't take them +3.5? The outcome of the game is not dependent on what Vegas sets the line at.

    There's a very good trend to take the road underdog if they are a less than 3 points underdog.

    Ravens need to really put a shoulder into Ben. Knock the fuker onto the ground.

    I would take bal ML or rare case buy the point if the line went down.

    oh yeah, its not....

    Phi -3 gets off the 3, automatic GB ML
    Indy -3 gets off the 3, automatic NYJ ML



    Mind you if I liked +3.5 right away and it went down to +2.5, I would double up on the bet.

    is pitts offense even better than the chiefs? The steelers are dog shit this year; inflated qb, not much of a run game, average defense at best. I love this matchup for the ravens. They win easily.. which sucks for my patriots but I don't think Baltimore can win in NE.

    I don't see how they're giving Baltimore no shot.

    +600 makes some sense considering they're +162 in their next game.

    Good value. I think we'll be able to get a better price later on in the week however. Not going to lock it in now but I do like it.

    The ravens seem like a hungrier team, with pitt already winning that superbowl.. Plus pitt has the same lineup, does rapeburger and ketchup guy still have enough t in the terrible that makes the terrible towel nation tick?? Only time will tell. Duh duh duhhhh.

    I don't like the pick.

    Pittsburgh had an extra week of rest
    Pittsburgh is at home
    2 weeks on the road for Baltimore
    Matt Cassell was no threat to exploit the Ravens overrated secondary
    I feel Pitts rushing offense was getting better late in the year
    Rape-lisburger is the hardest QB in the NFL to physically sack
    Roethlisburger to Mike Wallace deep, baltimore's secondary as their achilles heel
    Blitzers coming at Flacco from every direction is begging for a turnover

    no play for me yet

    The rest really helps Pitt

    I am leaning towards Pitt buying points

    FYI, I had Baltimore +3 in the last matchup and they won outright. This time after this many weeks of football and with the rest I think Pitt is the play. Flacco isn't nearly as good as the rapist and Baltimore's defense has been giving up 20+ per game with exception to playing little matty cassell. Pittsburgh has the weapons to exploit it.
