NFL Week 3 Cash-In

Wild on Sports
NFL Week 3 Cash-In

Houston Texans (-2) at Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore comes into the game winners of six of the past seven meetings between the two teams. This time around it will be a much different looking Ravens team that Houston encounters. Gone is future hall-of-fame linebacker Ray Lewis, gone is saftey Ed Reed (well, not gone but on your team instead of against) and most notably gone is Ray Rice who will miss the game with a hip flexor problem. Houston is 2-0 on the season, both wins coming in come-from-behind fashion. Baltimore enters the game 1-1 after an opening night loss to the high flying Broncos and a bounce back win a week ago against the Browns. The NFL is one of those league where you can't read a ton into previous weeks. That said, we believe that Houston is one of the two or eventually three truly elite teams in the AFC. Baltimore is missing their primary offensive weapon and have are not the same team defensively that they have been in previous years.
PICK: Houston -2

Green Bay Packers (-3) at Cincinnati Bengals
Both teams come into the game 1-1, each having one good test and one lay-up win. The Packers offense is not new news to anyone. They are loaded and very dangerous at wide reciever (Cobb, Nelson, Jones) and have arguably the best quarterback in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers. Last week they seemed to discover a bit of a running game in the form of James Starks who broke the 100 yard mark for the first time in over a year. On the other side of the ball, Cincinnati has one of the best defensive fronts in football led by defensive tackle Geno Atkins. While the Bengals have a decent passing attack of their own, if Cincinnati wants to be competitive they are going to need Atkins to be in Rodgers face from the get go. When it is all said and done, its a QB league and we believe in the better one here.
PICK: Green Bay -3

Chicago Bears (-2.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers
This is a match-up between a team that looks playoff bound and a team that looks like a complete stinker. How the spread here is under a field goal is beyond me. The Steelers have scored just a combined 19 points in the first two games and are going up against a very good Bears defense this week. The Bears can get it done on both sides of the ball and should completely outmatch the Steelers from the get go. Consider this our lock of the week!
PICK: Chicago -2.5
