    That is what it opened at, and it is sitting at -7 right now.

    It is not -9 and won't be. No idea where that number came from.

    I got it at -6.

    Re: Ravens -9. Too much?

    Bengals secondary isn't what it used to be when they gave us fits. Now they have clowns like Taylor Mays, Pacman Jones, and Terrance Newman on the team.

    The Ravens pass rush will be fine. I don't expect to see anything elaborate tonight because Dalton struggled last year against our secondary. Deception will be more the key than pressure tonight IMHO. We're better off keeping him in the pocket and limiting his time, rather than going for the big hit and risking him getting outside the pocket.

    That said, from a betting perspective, I wouldn't give any NFL team 9 points in any game against anybody, even if for some reason I were foolish enough to place a bet on one. I'd just leave that game alone entirely. In this particular game, not only would I not give the 9, I also wouldn't take the 9 and the Bengals either.

    Too much blowout potential here, and the Bengals you wouldn't expect to be able to run the ball enough to control the clock and keep it close late. Of course they COULD; anything COULD happen, but the odds on the whole do not favor it.

    You could very well be right, I'm sure it's a winning record. Maybe I'm just overreacting to the four-INT day he had against them a couple years ago, but it just always seems like (even in the wins) he has mighty struggles against them.

    When he was young and had no weapons?

    It is 2012, not 2009 anymore.

    Did you see the games last year? 105 rating first game,.112 rating second game.
