In possibly the shocker of the year, I’m actually going to go over .500 on my NFL picks for the week. I also beat Clay Fowler and his homies Lingo and Overton this week. I’ll credit those fools for inspiring me to greatness and proving what I’ve already known since I started working here – I may stink, but I’m better than Fowler.
Now to the Monday Night pick, which I usually master anyway (yeah, I just jinxed myself)….
Baltimore (+9) at Pittsburgh
This spread seems a little large, but I was tempted to lay the points. Then I saw that it was pouring in Pittsburgh. That makes for ugly football, football where one team probably won’t blow past the other. Steelers win, but the muck leaves the Ravens close enough to cover.
Pittsburgh 17, Baltimore 12
