NFL Beat The Book-Week 3
Pittsburgh -4.5 @ Cincy
A lot of people are on Cincy this week after the Steelers struggled in a lose to Chicago and the Bengals upset GB. Not so fast. Cincy did not play well against Denver and Pittsburgh will be just fine. They will shut down Cedric Benson and do enough against a weak secondary to cover.
Ravens -13.5 vs. Browns
This game exactly like the Kc-BAL game from week one which saw Baltimore cover by...14. Cleveland cannot move the ball offensively and an improved Ravens offense should score 30+. Easy cover for Baltimore.
Broncos +1.5 @ Oakland
The Broncos have been one of the best defenses early on and after struggling mightily against a weak KC defense, JaMarcus Russell and the Raiders offense cannot be trusted. Expect the Broncos to run the ball at will and Orton will do just enough to pull out an out right win.
SF +7.5@ Minnesota
A battle of 2-0 teams, I love what the 49ers are doing on the ground and while controlling the clock, they will be keeping the rock out of the hands of Peterson. The Vikes havent been forced to have Favre win them a game yet, however this may be the week. The 49ers defense has slowed the Cardinals and Seahawks ground game, so Favre may be forced to make tough throws. If that is the case, the 49ers will have the game right where they want it.
GB -6.5 @ Rams
You have to expect the Packers to come out pissed after blowing a game at home to Cincy last week. Greg Jennings had 0 catches last week. That wont happen again. Expect a massive performance through the air and for the Rams to be down 14 points midway through the first quarter. Packers in a rout.
