Mark My Words - Here are the pro and college lines that I would put money on, and why:
Pittsburgh -4.5 over CINCINNATI - Cincinnati is just not that good this year. I can't see the Bengals running against the Steelers front seven, which could make things scary if the Steelers can sit back and wait for Carson Palmer to pass since he has not been the same since his knee and elbow injuries in the past 3 years.
Indianapolis +3 over PHILADELPHIA - Philly has not actually played all that well at home. In spite of injuries, the Colts seem to be clicking, which makes it hard for me not to take 3 free points.
Tampa Bay +8 over ATLANTA - The emergence of LeGarrette Blount as an inside run presence gives the Bucs another dimension in an already surprising season. Matt Ryan and Atlanta play well at home, but 8 points is too many to give up to a pretty good and underrated team.
HOUSTON +2.5 over San Diego - San Diego just haven't proven themselves to be an elite team, which makes me question their ability to cover 2.5 points against a good team on the road. I think this one will be close...I think this one will be a scoring fest...I just don't think San Diego will cover on the road.
SEATTLE +6 over New York Giants - The Seahawks are really good at home...only at home, but they are pretty good in Seattle.
Miami +5 over BALTIMORE - I see this as a pretty even match-up, which should put the line at Baltimore by 3 or 3.5 points. I really don't see either team establishing a running game, so whoever gets a defensive takeaway or big play from a WR wins.
