The Baltimore Ravens are pretty short away to the Dolphins but we are happy to be on the Ravens at -6.5. The Redskins travel to the Eagles and are +9.5 underdogs. We are happy to be on an underdog at that number so will be expecting the Redskins to get within 10.
The Steelers travel to New England for the first Sunday Night of the season and are +5.5 which I think is a number the Patriots will cover despite having a history of slow starts to the season.
