Cleveland at Baltimore (-12)
Ryan: On one hand, all the lines are still skewed for the home teams this week because of the lingering stench of the replacement refs. On the other, the Browns are 0-3 and lost by 10 at home to the Bills last week. Now I don’t know WHAT to decide. These high lines are always a complete crapshoot. I guess the Browns cover.
Asif: So, my fantasy team was looking like a juggernaut going into last week with Trent Richardson, CJ Spiller, Hakeem Nicks, Jordy Nelson, Aaron Rodgers, Dwayne Bowe, and Tony Gonzalez. Then, of course, Nicks and Spiller got hurt (I started Stevan Ridley with Nicks out) Richardson sucked, and the debacle in Seattle which I will never speak of again ensued. Long story short, my highest scorer last week was the Bears defense. I still won my game (yay 14 team league!), but now I have no idea what to think. Is Trent Richardson actually good? Or was his awesome Week 2 performance just a product of a cringe-worthy Bengals defense? Whatever the case, I’m not optimistic at all. Hoping and praying that this doesn’t turn into a blowout so the Browns don’t abandon the run and I can get some points, I’ll pick Cleveland to cover.
