Recreation to guess now
Pittsburgh at Kansas Metropolis (-three)
What’s up with Ben Roethlisberger? The face of the Steelers franchise for the final decade looks like he wants a profession change, if his feedback after final Sunday’s no-landing, 5-interception recreation are any indication.
“Perhaps I don’t have it anymore,” the QB stated after Ben and the Steelers have been roasted at house by Jacksonville.
No matter it’s that Roethlisberger has managed to lose, he had higher discover it in a rush as a result of the undefeated Chiefs are ready. From a report standpoint (the Steelers are nonetheless in first place within the mediocre AFC North) the three-level line may make sense, however anticipate KC cash to quickly flood in as Roethlisberger’s feedback make their method into the consciousness of the betting public. KC is 5-zero SU and 5-zero ATS, and betting on streaks to finish have depleted a whole lot of financial institution accounts through the years.
Recreation to attend on
New England at New York Jets (+9.5)
Tank this, say the Jets, who should be thought-about the most important shock within the league to date. At three-2 the NYJ are greater than within the combine in a strong AFC East. And if New York can get it completed towards a shaky Patriots workforce this coming Sunday, it’ll be recreation on within the division.

It may be helpful to take a seat this one out for a bit and look forward to a line transfer. If heavy cash comes down on NE, books may modify the vig in the event that they don’t need to tackle the additional half-level to make it a ten-level line.
Complete to observe
Miami at Atlanta (forty seven.5)
Lifeless final. That’s the place the Dolphins rank in offense, which about the place a staff that may’t cross the ball or run the ball ought to be. The truth that Miami is 2-2 is considerably of a minor miracle, and a testomony to the workforce’s capability to cease the run.
Whether or not they can cease Atlanta’s passing assault is one other query, nevertheless. The Dolphins will in all probability have to attain within the 20’s to cowl the forty seven.5, and that’s a tall order for a membership that has barely averaged 10 factors per recreation thus far.
