    Default Hard for bookies to call

    The last 17 meetings between the Steelers and Ravens have resulted in the Steelers winning 9, the Ravens winning 8, total points for all 17 games by each team....302 to 302.

    While we have won the majority of the games lately and there is that always familiar stat about Ben not losing to Harbaugh and Flacco....with each meeting the percentage is growing against him.

    Less Excitement For Big Steelers-Ravens Game?

    Pittsburgh Vendors See Slow Merchandise Sales Before Baltimore Visit

    POSTED: 5:17 pm EST January 13, 2011



    PITTSBURGH -- Enter the Strip District and you know for certain, just by looking around, that you're in Pittsburgh Steelers country.

    But Channel 4 Action News' Sheldon Ingram reported that you can't necessarily feel it, because the usual NFL playoff excitement seems not to have caught on with fans yet.

    In the days before the Baltimore Ravens come to town, local vendors said they have the poor sales to back that feeling up.

    "They're a little leery," vendor Jim Coen said Thursday. "Baltimore played pretty well last week, and I think Steelers fans -- in the back of their minds -- are a little worried. It's definitely showing up in my sales."

    "Sales are down," vendor Rocco Carrieri said. "They're kind of quiet right now. They want to wait for the outcome of Saturday's game. We played Baltimore already. We won one and lost one. I think they're nervous."

    "They got something to be nervous about," vendor Joe Hermanowski said. "That's a good team. That's not a team you can just laugh off. It ain't Cleveland."

    "A lot of people are nervous," Steelers fan Wil Sims said. "But the thing about it is, you got to get to (Ravens quarterback Joe) Flacco early, because Flacco is dangerous."

    "I am personally, so if I'm worried about it, maybe they (other fans) are, too," Steelers fan Sherry Cravener said.

    But don't count Steelers fan Susan O'Brien among the nervous.

    "Dead birds everywhere -- all over Heinz Field," O'Brien said.

    The chiefs had a very hot streak through the beginning of the season, but at the end they had no gas in the tank. The Chargers dismantled them. The Raiders dimantled them. And the Ravens dismantled them. In my opinion they were a mediocre team. The Steelers D is miles ahead of the Chiefs, and so is Ben.

    The Steelers at home against Baltimore is where they usually beat them. This year was just an anomaly in the series.

    Remember a bookies job is not to predict the point differential but to predict what spread will make an equal amount of money end up on either side of the bet.
