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 14, 2011 by Steel Haven

I felt pretty good in the second quarter when the Giants took a touchdown lead after a dominating drive powered by the running game. Then the wheels fell off with the Sex Cannon playing like he was back at the University of Florida. I am definitely off the Giants doing better than expected bandwagon. Luckily a tie for the longest touchdown pass in history from record setting Tom Brady to gritty, hard working (i.e Caucasian) Wes Welker saved me from ending up with a pair of pushes in my other matchups.

The first week is tough. To be honest I don't have much of a feel after the opening weekend. In fact I am going with three week one losers against three week one winners.

Best Bet

Dallas Cowboys (-3.0) over San Fransisco 49ers

The Cowboys imploded on Sunday night in the swamps of Jersey to blow a 14 point fourth quarter lead for the first time in franchise history finding a way to lose sort of like the first half of last season. The 49ers are not the Jets. Their margin of victory over what looks to be an awful Seahawks team was padded by a pair of Ted Ginn return touchdowns in the fourth quarter.


Denver Broncos (-6.0) over Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals won the first round of the battle of Ohio in Cleveland to open the season. I take that as a sign the Browns are in big trouble more than any long term positive for the Bengals. Orton puts up numbers despite brain freezes at the most inopportune times in close games. That should be enough in this matchup at home.

Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) over Philadelphia Eagles

The Bears continue to be better than I think. So I'll give last year's NFC wins leader a mulligan. Especially with them heading home where Matty Ice always plays his best ball. This line to me seems like an overreaction to week one results and the hype surrounding the Eagles.

Last Week

New York Giants (-3.0) over Washington Redskins LOSS

New England Patriots (-7.0) over Miami Dolphins WIN

Arizona Cardinals (-7.0) over Carolina Panthers PUSH
