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

Playoff Bets

January 12, 2011 by Steel Haven

Like last year I lost both games on Saturday. Unlike last year I climbed back to .500 on Sunday. No rhyme or reason this week, just going by gut feel. I have 2 road teams, 2 home teams. A pair of favorites, a pair of dogs.

home team in bold


Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) over Baltimore Ravens

Home field doesn't seem to matter in this rivalry. I'll go with the Steelers based mostly on them coming off a bye versus the Ravens on only 6 days rest. I would have probably been happier if a 3 point Steelers win would have resulted in a push instead of a loss.

Green Bay Packers (+2.5) over Atlanta Falcons

Inconsistency, thy name is Haven. This is the same situation as the Steelers game. A road dog coming off a Sunday win having to go on the road on a short week to face a team coming off a bye. Plus I am getting under a field goal as incentive. What can I say? I like the Packers more than the Falcons. Logic be damned.


Chicago Bears (-10.0) over Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks burned me last week winning outright as a double digit dog. That was in Seattle. This is not. I have no faith in them on the road even though the Seahawks won in Chicago earlier in the year. A backdoor cover on a mistake by Jay Cutler does give me pause.

New York Jets (+8.5) over New England Patriots

The Jets lost to the Patriots in Foxboro by 42 points in December. I do not expect them to win outright. I do expect them to run the ball and keep the game close. Not exactly sure why....
