NFL Straight Bet – Week 3 – Pick 1: Pittsburgh vs. Philadelphia

Take Pittsburgh -3 away vs. Philadelphia

The Breakdown:

Pittsburgh was able to beat their division rival Cincinnati, as they won at home 24-16 to move to 2-0. Philadelphia also moved to 2-0 with a road Monday Night Football victory over Chicago 29-14. Both teams are 2-0, but it seems clear who the leader in Pennsylvania is. Pittsburgh has averaged over 30 PPG over the past 2 games, and has only allowed 16 pts in each game. Philadelphia is also off to a great start, but when looking at their opponents (Chicago, Cleveland) their weak opponents is well documented. They haven’t yet turned the ball over either which has been a big help to their success. Even without Le’veon Bell, Deangelo Williams has picked up the slacked in a big way with 237 rush yds and 2 TDs in 2 games. Big Ben has also been up to his high standards with 559 pass yds and 6 TDs. Carson Wentz has been off to a good start in his first 2 games in the NFL, but the Steelers will be a much bigger test than his first 2 opponents. Pittsburgh has the better team and should move to 3-0, bringing Philadelphia and Wentz back down to reality.
