Steelers vs Titans Preview

Pittsburgh has bigger problems to worry about than their Week 4 loss at Houston - there is the little matter of Ben Roethlisberger's injured leg.

Expect the point spread to remain off the board early in the week as the Steelers host the Titans while Big Ben's status is clarified. Defensive end Aaron Smith (foot) and RB Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring) are also considered questionable.

The OVER is 7-2 in the past 9 meetings in Pittsburgh in an important game for Tennessee as they head for the bye in Week 6.


Bills Host Favored Eagles

The Bills might be the worst 3-1 team in recent memory, while the Eagles might be the best 1-3 team.

But when you look at one key stat, it's not really surprising. The Eagles have not won a turnover battle yet this season and are minus 6 while the Bills have won that battle four times and are plus 7.

Had you looked at this game on the schedule last month, you would have bet the Eagles would be 10-point chalk, but they opened at just 3 and have been bet down already.

NFL Line Moves: Titans Meet Steelers

Hard to believe that a quarter of the NFL season is already in the books, but every team has now played four games and betting lines get sharper as cards get smaller due to bye weeks. Even with the smaller card, there are still plenty of lines that bettors and the house don’t agree on.

LSU favored by 14 over Florida

The LSU Tigers will look to add yet another big win to their resume this week when the Florida Gators come to town, but if recent trends hold true, it could be the roadies covering the NCAA football spread.

Florida and LSU have split their series 5-5 SU in their last 10 games. But the home team has covered the spread only twice in those games. Florida is 5-0-1 ATS in its last 6 games when playing on the road against LSU.

Florida QB John Brantley was injured last week and will sit against the Tigers.
