The home of die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fans. It's not just a team, it's a way of life!

Best Bet (plus two)

September 16, 2015 by Steel Haven

Knew I shouldn't go for a road best bet in the first week, especially against a team that was over .500 last year and improved over the offseason. I was just too enamored by Andrew Luck. At least in my other picks the Browns and Racial Slurs did not let me down even though the Dolphins tried hard to give their game away in Washington.

This week the theme is favorites in their home openers coming off tough road losses. I actually also like the Steelers against the 49ers in the same category, but prefer to avoid jinxing them.

Best Bet

New York Giants (-2) over Atlanta Falcons

A comedy of errors cost the Giants in the fourth quarter in Dallas. I see a rebound at home against a team coming off a short work week happy with an upset win at home.


Philadelphia Eagles (-5) over Dallas Cowboys

Loss of Dez Bryant a major blow to the Cowboys. Hard to envision Chip Kelly having a worse day than he had in Atlanta last Monday.

New Orleans Saints (-9.5) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Lovie Howell Smith is making his predecessor Greg Schiano look like Vince Lombardi. Gotta be pleased with my first ever Gilligan's Island reference on The Glazer's now probably wish Lovie was only on a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

Last Week

Indianapolis Colts (-3) over Buffalo Bills LOSS

New York Jets (-3) over Cleveland Browns WIN

Miami Dolphins (-4) over Washington Redskins WIN

Best Bets: 0-1, Overall: 2-1
