Eagles/Bears, Ravens/Steelers Predictions & Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on September 26th, 2008 | Comment »

The Sunday and Monday night spreads got released late, so I didn’t get a chance to add those previews to the list, so I’ll cover them here.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -3 @ CHICAGO BEARS

As an Eagles fan, I naturally think the Eagles will pounds the Bears. The Bears have been great at stopping the run, but they’re struggling against the pass. The Bears are 28th against the pass, allowing over 250 YPG. With the hot start McNabb has gotten off to, I expect him to be throwing all over the field. I love the way the Eagles offense is playing and their defense has been even better. The Eagles have the best rush defense in the league, so they should shut down Matt Forte and I don’t expect Orton to do anything against this Eagles secondary. I’m putting 7 units on the Eagles would throw this into the “spreads to take” category, but keep in my, I am an Eagles fan.

Prediction — Eagles 24 – Bears 13

Pick Against the Spread: Eagles -3 — Confidence 4/5
Pick Straight Up: Eagles — Confidence 4/5

BALTIMORE RAVENS @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS -5

The Ravens could very well pull off the upset this week. The Ravens have the best defense in the NFL and with Willie Parker out and Ben Roethlisberger extremely banged up, the Steelers offense will be in bad shape against this defense. The Steelers pass protection was exposed by the Eagles last week and the Ravens should easily be able to dominate their offense line again this week. The only question is whether the Ravens offense has enough to win this one. I would take the points here. I could see the Ravens either pulling off the upset or losing by 3. The Steelers are notorious for playing great football at home though, I just can’t see them covering 5 against the Ravens defense with all the injuries.

Predictions — Steelers 20 – Ravens 17

Pick Against the Spread: Ravens +5 — Confidence 3/5
Pick Straight Up: Ravens — Confidence 1/5

Here are the rest of my Week 4 NFL Picks.
