Was it great defense, or sheer ineptitude that resulted in last Monday Night's low scoring affair between the Steelers and 'Skins? I guess the answer is a little of both; Washington was brutal, while the Steelers looked very much like the best defensive team in the league.
But, most importantly out of that erratic mess, came this seasons first "under", (one previous game landed on or near the number), as both teams combined to score just 29 points.
This week features the emerging Arizona Cardinals (-10), and as Joe Namath would say, the "struuggaallingg" San Francisco 49'ers.
While the Cardinals lead the NFC West, the 49ers haven't lived up to expectations.
The Cards have a three-game lead in their division, giving them a good chance to earn their first title since the St. Louis Cardinals won the NFC East in 1975.
The 49ers face a tall task against the high-scoring Cardinals, who lead the NFL with 29.3 points per game, 34.0 at home. Arizona has won five straight at home and is 9-2 in the desert since Ken Whisenhunt took over.
So will San Francisco respond to its coach's crazy and controversial motivational tactics this Monday?
Are the Cardinals for real, or will they once again choke down the stretch?
Here are a few key ATS trends to keep in mind before wagering on this contest:
The 49ers are 1-5 ATS as an underdog this season, but are a perfect 2-0 ATS off a division game.
Arizona is an impressive 4-0 ATS when playing the role of favorite this year, and is 6-2 ATS overall. It's also interesting to note that they are a perfect 3-0 ATS in home games.
Good luck and "Kill that Book"!
