Levack’s Week 8 Locks
I went 0 - 3!!! What a stinker! I hate myself over it! My season record is now a TERRIBLE 7-14!!! That's ridiculous. I have no excuses. I won't sit here and give a speech about comebacks this week either. I'll just shut up and make my picks.
Tennessee Titans -6 at Cincinnati Bengals
I feel like the Titans are the better team here but not to the degree that you may think they are. This is a Bengals team that fights for every game and is 6 - 1 against the spread so far this season with their only ATS loss coming in week one to the Chargers. This game will be closer than you think and I think the Tiny handed Tiger King Joe Burrow will actually have a chance to win it late in the 4th quarter.
Bengals + 6
Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens - 4
This is a “who wants it more game”. The Steelers are really good but I still think the Ravens are a little better. If the Ravens lose this game the Steelers would have a two game lead in the AFC North and wit the next three games being against the Cowboys, Bengals and Jags while the Ravens facing the Colts, Pats and Titans...The Steelers could have a three or four game lead before the two teams meet again November 26th. Give me the Ravens to treat this like a must win and get it done.
Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns -2.5
The weather will be rough in Cleveland with heavy winds in the forecast. The Raiders are actually a power run team more than anything. They have the majority of their O Line back and Josh Jacobs will want the ball. I trust Derek Carr to make smarter decisions than Baker Mayfield in windy conditions.
