Thursday night football pick

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

What were the schedule-makers thinking at the beginning of the season putting Cleveland in prime time? We knew they weren’t going to be good. We knew they weren’t going to be exciting. Why didn’t the NFL and the TV networks realize this?

Pittsburgh has been hot-and-cold lately. They won a blow out in Cincinnati last week, but in the two previous weeks played close games at home against Tyler Palko’s Chiefs and those same Bengals.

So which team shows up here on short rest?

I’m betting it’s the one that knows they need to keep pace with the rest of the top teams in the AFC. One that needs to make a statement and put some pressure on the Ravens to get on top of their division. So, I will be laying the points with Big Ben and Co.

Pick: PITTSBURGH -14 over Cleveland.

Last week: 10-6
This season: 96-95-2
