GAME: (925) SEATTLE MARINERS vs (926) HOUSTON ASTROS
PICKS: (926) HOUSTON ASTROS
REASON FOR PICK: The schedule of final half month is sort of torture for the Mariners, not only they are on the 11-game trip, but they also have to travel all around the state, from Seattle to Los Angels to Houston, prepare the next stop to Toronto then fly back home in the end of the season, if they cannot win the playoff ticket. They carried a shaky pitching stuff on the road, both Hisashi Iwakuma, Roenis Elias, Chris Young were failed to complete four innings in their recent starts. Iwakuma in particular haven't done that in 3 of his last 5, allowed 5, 3, 3, 4, 7 during the stretch. This is the last home game for the Astros, Collin McHugh has won six consecutive decisions, and haven't issued a walk in any of his last four outings while fanned 25 batters in 29 1/3 frames. Iwakuma can pitch that kind of number in mint condition, but he is certainly far away. Take (926) Houston Astros.
GAME: (477) PITTSBURGH STEELERS vs (478) CAROLINA PANTHERS
PICKS: (477) PITTSBURGH STEELERS
REASON FOR PICK: Your Free play for Sunday, Sept 21, 2014 is in the NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers. A pair of conservative offenses with hard hitting defenses meet. Pittsburgh struggled on offense the last game at Baltimore getting 6 points and this is their second straight road game. The defense is 7th against the pass and held the Ravens to 5-12 on third down, and the Browns to 2-11 on third down. Despite failing to cover in each of its first two games this season, the Steelers are still 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 6-2 ATS when playing their last eight games on grass. But what I like most in this matchup is the fact that the Steelers have covered the last five meetings between these clubs. The Steelers have also been very efficient rushing the ball with a 4.9 yards per rush clip this season. Add to that the 5th best passing offense right now and the Steelers should be able to be there at the end. In their first two games the Steelers were favored, but here we are getting points and that will make all the difference. Your free play is on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
GAME: (473) DENVER BRONCOS vs (474) SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
PICKS: (474) SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
REASON FOR PICK: This Sunday money will rain from the sky as I have my NFL 66% MVP, AFC SOUTH GAME OF THE MONTH, and my 66% BEST BET WINNERS just for you. So follow me all the way to the winners circle.
Sunday's FREE winner is Seattle over Denver.
play Seattle (Game 474).
This is my FREE WINNER.
In a rematch of Super Bowl 48 and what could very well be the matchup for Super Bowl 49, the 2-0 Broncos go into Seattle to face the 1-1 Seahawks. Don't think that because Rivers and Gates had success last week against the Seattle "D" that Pete Carrol and his quick pass-rushers aren't looking at this game as a statement-maker. Seattle is a much different team at home where Russell Wilson is 18-1 SU (14-4-1 ATS). Wilson, his workhorse, Marshawn Lynch running the ball (146 YR and 2 TD's), a fired-up "D", and the loudest stadium in the country his side tell me the Seahawks are the play. I think this will be closer than 43-8 but I must side with Seattle.
