Baltimore Ravens v. Pittsburgh Steelers
Pick: Steelers -120 (5Dimes)
This is an important game for both, given that the Bengals and Browns both won earlier today. First place in the AFC North is on the line. The Ravens won the first time around, but the teams were pretty close yardage wise. The three takeaways by the Ravens defense, two of which occurred in the red zone, made the difference in that game. The two teams have split the season series in seven of the last eight years. The Baltimore secondary is a little banged up at the moment. CB’s Jimmy Smith and Asa Jackson are both out with injuries, and that doesn’t bode well against Big Ben and Antonio Brown, both of whom are in the top three in the league in yardage for their respective positions. After alternating wins and losses in their first six games, the Steelers have put up 81 points in two straight wins. The Steelers are much improved since the Week 2 loss to the Ravens, and I like them to win tonight at home, where they are 3-1 on the season.
