Pilfo's Divisional Parlay
January 14th 2011 - Pilfo
Pitt -3 / Chicago -10 / N.E. -8.5
The Steelers at home in the playoffs after a well deserved rest due to the
bye week. And only minus 3? This is a must play. I know these 2 teams usually
play a very close game but the Ravens have been struggling on offense all year.
The Steelers defense just doesn't give up any real yards on the ground which
means that Flacco will need to throw the ball and Flacco on the road against a
decent team is not a good bet. Big Ben will get the job done as he usually does
in the playoffs. After Tom Brady I believe Ben should be 2nd in the MVP voting.
Look at his stats closely and you will realize just how good he has been this
Prediction: Pitt. 27-10
Those mediocre Bears just keep shocking their fans this year. The Bear
defense is really awesome this year and very under-rated. More importantly the
Bears have no significant injuries and will face a Seattle team that beat them
earlier in the year. When these teams first met Lance Briggs did not play and
Peppers was a bit banged up. Since then the defense has come together as a unit.
I don't think the Seahawks will be able to move the ball much and the Bears will
benefit with good field position all game.
Prediction: Chicago 27-0
I give Rex Ryan credit for one thing this week and one thing only. He has
single handedly kept the spread of this game under 10. After the Pats crushed
the Jets 45-3 the Bears put up 38 points on the Jet defense. The powerful Jets
defense, although a solid unit, is not as good as their reputation shows. The
Pats will score often again on them. The Jet offense is close to pitiful so
don't over-think this one.
Prediction: New England 38-10
