I think this game has alot of variables that we do not usually see. I think the sharps are betting the Steelers who looked good vs. a same oppenent shutting down RGIII where as the giants alsmost lost a game at home to the pheonom. 27-12 and 27-23. I preference this as I am avid steeler fan and backer since 1992 the Tim Worley Bubby Brister days all thr way thru to Big Ben as the answer might not surpise you. I already made my withdrawal for the A&M win so I am standing pat today. Pittsburgh also blew 11 point lead in Oak and then a 7 point lead in Tenn with 5 min to go this is not the same Steelers team as the past decade.
The Steelers come in off back to back wins over losing team in Cincy and Wash. RGIII was due for a bad game also drops wet condidtions and some of the steelers defense helped. But also this team cannot run the ball and yesBig Ben is a play maker but with OSI, Tuck and JPP coming after him full steam this could be a recipe for disaster. Not the mention Brown is starting to seem like a ball hawk the last few games in the secondary.
The Giants come in 6-2 and winners of 3 in a row a demolition of SF 26-3 and thanklfully for Giants backers that was not last weekend or this line is -5.5 / -6 . The Giants also are not going to come into this game flat as they have been taken to the wire the last 2 weeks against Washington and with that huge Rally from Dallas. Eli has convinced me he is the best in the final 3 minutes. You want Brees Brady Rodgers ok. But for my wagering $ give me Eli in the biggest of big moments. The Defensive like also I think might be able to make some plays with the struggling ( going on 3 years now ) Steel clink offense line.They are eitheer the walking Wounded for not playing at all.
QB & Coach I go Edge PUSH
Defense NYG over Pitt slightly
Offense NYG slightly again over PITT and thier trio of recievers.
Pitt has a disadvantaged flighting in and out today same as gameday. BUt also they have had more time to prepare as the giants lives and in shambles in some cases. Thier loved ones thier nieghbors there city..
THE BIGGEST THING GOING TO BE THE EMOTION OF THE GIANTS AND THERE FANS. THERE MIGHT BE TEARS DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO ARE AT THIS GAME THAT MIGHT HAVE LITTERALLY THE CLOTHLES IN A BAG.
TAKE THE EMOTION TAKE THE GIANTS -3.
From a personal perspective this game just missed yesterday game for what it's worth.
