Behind enemy lines in the NFL on a Sunday full of big games

Yo, this is Nicky and we’re riding a little mo’ after hitting the B-12 Championship game yesterday as I thought that might be too many points in a such a big game, so let’s keep that going as we focus on the NFL where I see some good value on the board so we’re looking at two of the late games today. Firstly, we’re going into the fire in a heated rivalry game as I like the Ravens(-2.5 buy the hook) as they host the Steelers. I know, it was a 3 point game last time and the Steelers didn’t have Big Ben but the Ravens are undefeated at home this year and they will be putting pressure on Ben all day and with his bad wheel it could be a long day. On the quant side the Steelers are 2-4 ATS their last six games, and 4-7-1 ATS when playing the Ravens. This is a huge divisional game and look for it to be close but the Ravens to come out on top, we got one more after this….

Another game I like is a road dog as the Ca’Boys (+7 buy it if you don’t get it) go into Indy to take on a pretty banged up Colts team, with an injury list that reads more like a starting lineup. However, one thing I normally like to see is when a team is NOT playing well as that tends to continue but in this case it does concern me a little as the Colts know they can still take the division if they turn it around. Conversely, Dallas has played very well, and motivated under their new coach and that is also a powerful trend. I realize they have no Romo and no Barber but they still have plenty of weapons to keep this game close if not win it on the field. That’s the last of the Sunday chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
