NFL Playoffs Week 1 Football Bets

Pittsburgh Steelers -3 +102 NFL Free Pick of the Week
I mentioned this game in yesterday's post when the line was -2.5. I guess I should have bet it then... Anyway, there is still value in this line. (can you believe the Bengals opened as the favorite?) Anyway, Cinny has been playing some terrible ball lately while Pittsburgh has been coming on strong. The Steelers beat Cinninati earlier in the year and then lost one by a touchdown at home to them during their three game slump. This Steeler team turned it around since then to win their last 4 (2 of which were against teams over .500). The Bengals on the other hand ended their season with losses to Buffalo (Yes, Buffalo) and Kansas City... Go with the better playing team on this one and bet Willie Parker and Jerome Bettis on the road.

I'll be back with more later, and probably a few fights this weekend too.

Good Luck.
