Three best bets this week as we look to rebound from last week’s debacle. This week’s lock is going to be the Steelers -4 over the Ravens in a game that was originally supposed to be the conclusion of the Thanksgiving slate. I’m fully expecting that the line is higher than that come gametime, but as of late Wednesday night, when this was written, the last line I had seen was 4, so for our purposes, 4 it is. If you can find it at 4, hammer it. The Steelers are the best team in the NFL and we’ve seen Baltimore struggle against tougher competition. Going into the season, I looked at the Ravens as a potential Super Bowl contender, but teams seem to have figured Lamar Jackson out and the Ravens have been unable to adjust.

Cleveland covers 6.5 against Jacksonville. Jacksonville is starting Mike Glennon. Any more questions?

Seattle covers 5 in Philadelphia. Philadelphia is currently 20th in the NFL in pass defense DVOA. That Seattle offense is going to put up some points. Seattle’s pass defense is even worse (27th), but I don’t have confidence in Carson Wentz taking advantage.
