    I can't believe the spread is that high!! I'd take the Steelers, with their D, and this point spread.

    To me it basically says Ben isn't playing.

    That's how I see it too. But I'm still not touching this game with a 10ft pole.

    8 is a pretty big number, Ben or no Ben.

    Mandatory WARNING: clause --
    Don't forget the line is the "midpoint" for where the bookies expect to get the most profit. Future actual game result predictions based upon past performance is not guaranteed!

    I never bet on a team I have rooting interest in because my heart gets involved in the pick not just my head

    No Pgh - Balt game should be over 3 points - no matter who is or isn't playing.

    I agree. With Ben in I could see Ravens being 3 or 3.5 point favorites. With Homestead Charlie, the 3rd string QB starting, the line being between 8 and 10 is about right. Lets not forget how well the Ravens offense plays at home as well. I am hoping for a close game with you all, but a shellacking could be in the making.

    The site that I ... uh... check the spreads on has closed betting for this game.

    Last time they did that for a Ravens game was against Jacksonville.

    I am no conspiracy theorist, but if there was ever a game for Vegas to slip the Refs a few bucks, it was that game. Our WR's were mugged all game with no calls. So if things don't go our way, that's what I 'm blaming it on.
