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 18, 2013 by Steel Haven

A best bet victory before week 7. I've already bested last season. My other bets weren't as good. Definitely time to get off the Colts bandwagon. The departure of Bruce Arians has seemed to affect Andrew Luck, although not on the scale his departure affected Ben Roethlisberger.

This week I go off the reservation and pick three teams that have yet to win a game including a team that has a legitimate chance of not winning all season.

Best Bet

Minnesota Vikings (-5.5) over Cleveland Browns

Except for picking against the Browns nothing has worked for me this season. Let's stay on, or is that off, the bandwagon. Run Purple Jesus, run.


Jacksonville Jaguars (+19.5) over Seattle Seahawks

I wish I could have jumped on this earlier when the line was over 20. This isn't college football. Say what you want about the Jaguars, but they are still a professional football team. This is just too many points. The Seahawks are coming off a huge divisional win over the 49ers. Pete Carroll has no reason to embarrass his former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. This is just too many points.

New York Giants (+1.5) over Carolina Panthers

The Giants are dead last in scoring defense having given up 38.5 points per game. Eli Manning has thrown 7 interceptions. Call this a hunch. I just can’t see Tom Coughlin allowing them to fall to 0-3.

Last Week

Baltimore Ravens (-6.5) over Cleveland Browns WIN

Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) over Miami Dolphins LOSS

New Orleans Saints (-3.5) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers LOSS

Year to Date: 1-6  Best Bets: 1-1
