The set-up: Drew Brees is out for the Saints. Teddy Bridgewater is in. The Seahawks are 2-0 after an upset road victory at Pittsburgh last weekend and with a date vs. the co-division leading Rams in Week 4, I believe the home side lays everything on the line this week in order to secure the 3-0 start. The Saints are reeling now, but the offense looked terrible last week before Brees went down anyways. I don’t foresee anything changing in a week and with the major change at the QB position.
The pick: Seattle has been getting consistent play on both sides of the ball and Russell Wilson and company are now licking their chops to get a shot at this suspect New Orleans’ secondary. Note that the Saints are just 1-3 ATS in their last four anyways after a loss by ten or more points, while Seattle is 6-1 ATS in its last seven after a victory by six points or less. Consider the home side in this one.
1* Free NFL Pick on Pittsburgh Steelers +7 -125
I love the value here with the Steelers getting a touchdown at San Francisco. With the injury to Ben Roethlisberger no one is giving this Pittsburgh team any shot of being a serious threat this season. I would hesitate before counting out this team.
Sure they might throw in the towel if they string together a bunch more losses, but not way is a Mike Tomlin coached team going to just lay down. You don't make a trade for a guy like Minkah Fitzpatrick if you aren't planning on trying to win.
Mason Rudolph isn't Ben Roethlisberger, but he didn't look overwhelmed at all in relief of Big Ben against the Seahawks. Rudolph completed 12 of 19 for 112 yards and 2 scores. 49ers defense has some decent numbers, but I don't think either of the offenses they have played are in any good.
I also think we are seeing the 49ers overvalued because they have started out 2-0. This is a team a lot of people were high on, so the public isn't hesitating to jump on board. I just don't think SF is good enough to be laying this kind of a number against a team like the Steelers who are going to lay everything they have on the line to win this game. Take Pittsburgh!
