Pit 3-0 SU & ATS Last 3 as Home Dogs

The Pittsburgh Steelers will begin life without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Thursday night when archrival Baltimore invades Heinz Field with the eyes of the nation solely squared upon them.

Roethlisberger, who’s expected to miss 4-6 weeks after spraining his MCL in Pittsburgh’s 12-6 victory over the Rams in Week 3, hands the starting reigns to veteran signal caller Michael Vick. Vick completed five of six attempts for 38 yards Sunday but was sacked twice and lost a fumble.

Fresh off a 28-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore has failed to cover the spread in its first three contests. This is the first time in history that the team has dropped three-straight games to begin a season.

Vick Thursday Night Football NFL Props

With Ben Roethlisberger on the shelf for a chunk of the season with a knee injury, Michael Vick will step into the spotlight against the Ravens in Thursday Night Football action. The 35-year-old Vick last started a game as a member of the Jets last season. It was a forgettable season for Vick, who ended the season with a 68.3 QB rating.

Thanks to a tumultuous off-field history and a reputation as one of the most electric quarterbacks in NFL history, Vick is anything but your standard backup. His presence attracts the attention of fans and bettors whenever he takes the field.

Baltimore is 0-3 yet laying points on the road to arch-rival Pittsburgh. Oakland is road chalk, too, despite losing 19 of its last 21 away matchups.

What gives in this weird Week 4? Injuries and ineptness that's what.

The Ravens have made nine trips to Pittsburgh during the John Harbaugh era. They've been underdogs eight of the nine times. The only time Baltimore was favored was in 2012 when Ben Roethlisberger was out and Byron Leftwich was the Steelers' starting quarterback.

UNDER 6-1 Falcons Last Seven on Road

The Atlanta Falcons have been money when they hit the road as the UNDER has cashed in six of their past seven away from the Georgia Dome. The Falcons will take to the road once again in Week 3 when they visit the Dallas Cowboys.

The Falcons are an unassuming 2-0 SU this season, with a combined margin of victory of a mere six points. But, not surprisingly, the offense has gone through wide receiver Julio Jones who has averaged 138 yards per game and accounted for a league-leading 14 first downs.

The Cowboys will turn to backup quarterback Brandon Weeden with Tony Romo out for nearly two months. Weeden went a perfect 7-of-7 with a touchdown in relief duties in Week 2.

Brees Out, McCown In For Saints at QB

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Carolina Panthers due to a bruised rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, head coach Sean Payton announced Friday.

Journeyman QB Luke McCown will get the nod under center in place of Brees. In light of the news, [5dimes-link] has adjusted the Saints from +3 all the way to +9.5. 

McCown will be needing to shake off some serious rust, as the 34-year-old has not started an NFL game since Sept. 2011. The signal caller only has nine career starts to his name which has seen his teams go 2-7 ATS during that span. 

The absence of Brees on a Sunday will be a rarity for Saints bettors. Since signing with the team as a free agent in 2006, the Purdue product has not missed a game due to injury.

Betting fans of the Carolina Panthers have seen them go 2-0 and 2-0 ATS so far this season, while the New Orleans Saints are at 0-2 and 0-2 ATS. In over under totals betting, the New Orleans Saints are 1-1, while the Carolina Panthers are 0-2.
