Odds for these games will change, so be sure to keep checking here.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs Denver Broncos - PIT -2.5
If you've been following my picks you will realize a clear trend for preseason betting--quarterback depth.  Nothing changes for the Sunday night matchup and that is especially true for the Steelers this week.  Big Ben will play in this game and will start or relieve Dixon.   The bonus feature of this game is that Dixon will get significant reps with the first team offense.   This is important because Leftwich will serve as mop-up duty and he played reasonably well last week bringing PIT back to cover against the Gmen.  For DEN, Orton should be given credit for playing well behind a transitional offensive line and throwing to suspect WRs.   However, behind him is the NFL draft green room superstar Brady Quinn.   Thanks, but no thanks.   With DEN still missing quality at RB and no Dumervil, it's hard to imagine they can hang with PIT for this one.  Prediction: Bank PIT -2.5.
