Thursday Night Football brings out our NFL Free Pick for the Mid week. We get to see Johnny at the helm once again. He was coming off of his best game in the pros when the coach sat him down when the starter returned from injury. Called into duty again, can Manziel instantly regain that magic? Find out what the linesmakers and the public thinks in this very interesting game at the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday night.
NFL Free Pick : Double Digit Drama
Where to begin with this one? It is not often that the undefeated teams is not featured first but the Browns are compelling. They roared out to a lead against the Arizona Cardinals. McCown got hurt and the Browns proved not to be the best of impromptu teams. It is unfair to be too harsh on them as they were exceeding expectations in that game. Now they get to face a team that held Ben and his Steelers in check on the defensive end. A difficult task but the spread that has blossomed up to -11 1/2 and beyond leads to the following issue.
Burden of being Undefeated
Bengals do not have a loss and are facing a division foe. At what point does it just become getting the win and maintaining the health? Dalton had to rally them past Seattle and then endure that last Ben pass within the twenty yard line to close out last week. Winning masks so many flaws. How do they only score sixteen against a suspect Steelers defense? This is what handicappers have to tackle in this spread.
Our free pick for this game is predicated on this undefeated factor. The Bengals would love to bury their in state rival but gain nothing from it. Solid production, get the win, and increase the division lead. Look for a professional performance with just enough Manziel magic to get the cover. Take the Browns plus the point for the cash. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
