Take Pittsburgh -7.5 away vs. Miami
Pittsburgh once again dominated of offense on Sunday, as they cruised to a home victory over New York 31-13. Miami saw their struggles continue, as they lost once again at home 30-17 vs Tennessee. This Miami team seems to be worse than many thought, as so far their only victory has come at home against Cleveland in OT after a missed FG. They rank 29th in yards allowed this season, and that number should increase greatly against this Pittsburgh squad. On the contrary they rank 5th in total yards gained and have scored 74 points the last 2 weeks. Big Ben is making a strong case for the MVP award, and this Miami squad seems to be catching him at an inopportune time since he’s thrown for 9 TDs and 0 INTs the last 2 games against much better defenses than Miami. It’s not a question of whether Pittsburgh will win this weekend, but more of a question of how big a blowout will it be. Usually taking a team as a 7.5 pt favorite on the road is risky, but I think this is probably the safest scenario to do so.
