Week 9 action offers up a tasty treat of a game when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Las Vegas has put out a point spread of -3, but I think that is far too much respect for the road team. Let's take a closer look at why I think the Giants will win, and cover this number.
The Detroit Lions finally looked like the team we expected last week. The Jacksonville Jaguars on the other hand, gave us more of the same in their game against Green Bay. I don't anticipate much to change when the two meet up in Week 9 action.
MarketsThis is a game that wasn't on the board last week thanks to the injury to Blaine Gabbert, but it opened at -4 on Sunday. The funniest thing about this spread is that money has once again come in on Jacksonville moving it all the way down to -3.25 (odds from SBRforum).
The Denver Broncos are riding high after pasting the lowly New Orleans Saints in prime-time. Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals were enjoying a mini-vacation. Don't expect a sudden resurgence from the Bengals though, because the Broncos are primed to keep the ball rolling in Week 9.
The Chicago Bears barely squeaked out a win in Week 8, while the Tennessee Titans were busy blowing a game on home turf. What can we expect when the two meet up this Sunday? Look for the Bears to win the game and cover the number.
Last night, after 17 minutes of game time, that's just over one full quarter of play, the Dallas Cowboys had put themselves in a big deep hole. An abyss. It was once again their ability to locate and press the self destruct button, that had put them there.
23-0 down, to the team that always come up big in Cowboys Stadium. Last year in the same fixture the New York Giants, stole a victory from under the Cowboys noses. Seemingly in control, 12 points up with around 4 minutes left, Dallas let the game slip away.The Giants went 3-0 in Jerry's World.
So after Tony Romo threw his 3rd interception which was run back 28 yards by premiere Defensive End Jason Pierre-Paul for a touchdown, the Merchants of all Doomsville were out in full force. The booing started, more so when Head Coach Jason Garrett, or Owner Jerry Jones appeared on the gigantic no-place-to-hide jumbotrons. Post game Romo said that at that point he would of booed the team too.
