The Mountaineers are ranked #1 in all three soccer polls, Baylor reaches 10 wins once again, and Kansas State played Texas in a non-conference match
Before the season began, an argument could have been made for any one of three AFC divisions to be the top of the class. Sorry West, you weren’t invited to the party.
After three weeks, not a lot has been settled in the debate for divisional supremacy. The East and South divisions each contain three teams with identical 2-1 straight-up (SU) records while Baltimore and Cincinnati balance the North.
Miami impressed with back-to-back road wins to start the season but couldn’t handle the New York Jets Sunday night. New England has looked very good on offense for two and-a-half of its three games but a defensive breakdown cost bettors against the Bills and in the only half where the Pats offense was shutout, the Jets made them pay dearly.
Going back to the end of last season, New York’s record is now 6-2 SU/ATS in its past eight games and 9-3 SU/ATS in its past 12. No one seems willing to crown King Sanchez just yet, but a 75-percent record for bettors is at least worth a tip of the cap.
The Bengals have an edge over the Ravens, not just for beating them straight-up in Week 2 but also for dominating the Panthers Sunday with an offense that didn’t even shift out of second gear.
Baltimore does lead the AFC in fewest points allowed (41) but Tennessee is right behind, giving up just 42. And Houston is the only one of 10 teams in the conference with a winning record that has allowed more points (78) than they have scored (77).
But then there is Pittsburgh…
NO OFFENSE, NO PROBLEM
If you can find anyone that says they projected the Steelers (3-0 SU/ATS) to win three-straight games to start the season, shake their hand, say “Congratulations” and then never buy any real estate or insurance from that person.
QB Charlie Batch guided the Steelers to a an absolute drubbing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, making plays and proving he is a capable backup. A Steelers team that was lost in `09 when defensive standout Troy Polamalu went down has positioned themselves as legitimate Super Bowl contenders. With one game left to play before Ben Roethlisberger returns, bettors need to have a strong system or trend in effect before fading Mike Tomlin’s crew.
The Baltimore Ravens are in Pittsburgh for Week 4 and the early line at sportsbook is Steelers (-1.5). The Over/Under is 34. Early betting action at Sportsbetting.com has 55% of the action on the visiting Ravens and 58% of the volume on the “Under”.
We mentioned how well the Jets have performed if you include last season’s results, but Pittsburgh slips under the radar since they missed the playoffs in January.
– Pittsburgh is 6-0 straight-up in its last six games and for sports bettors, they have a record of 4-1-1 against the spread in that stretch.
– The Steelers are outscoring opponents 44-12 in the first-half through the first three weeks of the season
Not bad for a team built on defense!

Have a great week.
Whether you are a smoker or non-smoker you most likely are aware of some of the health hazards associated with cigarette smoking, but the relationship between greater mortality and cigarette smoking has never been more compelling and the message to all smokers to quit smoking has never been louder until the publication of newly revealed scientific research data in January 2013.
The information was published in the January 24, 2013 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, an authoritative medical journal read by many physicians throughout the United States. Scientific data within the published article was based on a study of 216,917 adult participants throughout United States from 1997 through 2004. The participants of the study filled out the US National Health Interview Survey and the results of the survey were matched with The National Death Index and death certificates of the 13,700 participants who died before the study ended.
Participants in the study were categorized as either smokers, former smokers or never smoked. Participants were categorized as former smokers if they smoked at least 100 cigarettes in their adult life but had quit smoking for at least five years . The participants were categorized as having never smoked if they smoked fewer than 100 cigarettes in their adult life.
After statistical analysis of the 13,700 deaths which occurred during the study and adjustments were made for other factors which influence death such as alcohol consumption, obesity, and ethnicity, the results showed conclusively that participants who smoked died at a rate triple that of the ones that did not smoke and that those who never smoked were approximately twice as likely to live to the age of 80 compared to the smokers.
The study also showed that male participants between the ages of 25 and 79 lost an average of 12 years of life and that female participants lost an average of 11 years of life compared to the participants who had never smoked. Based on statistical calculations the estimated likelihood of surviving to the age of 80 years was 38% among the women participants in the study who smoked compared to 70% for the women participants who had never smoked. The statistics for the male participants were 26% and 61% respectively.
Although previous studies including a British study between 1900 and 1930, a large UK study between 1930 and 1950, a Japanese study between 1920 and 1945 and a meta-analysis of several prior US studies have similarly shown a tripling of the relative death rate of smokers compared to non-smokers and the loss of approximately 10 years of life on the average among smokers, this study is the first to show such a large absolute death rate for smokers, which is the difference in the percent chance of survival to age 80 between smokers and non-smokers.
As bleak as the statistics regarding smoking and premature death are, the study provides some positive insight with respect to the benefits of smoking cessation. It showed that smokers who quit between the ages of 25 and 34 years lived almost as long as the participants who never smoked, thus meaning they gained approximately 10 years of life. Individuals who quit between the ages of 35 and 44 years still had shortened life spans compared to the individuals who never smoked, but gained approximately 8 years of life on the average. Participants who quit smoking between the ages of 35 and 54 and those who quit between the ages of 55 and 64 gained approximately 6 and 4 years of life respectively.
The absolute death rate in this study was the difference in living until the age of 80 between smokers and non-smokers. It was calculated by subtracting the percent chance of living to the age of 80 for smokers from the percent chance of living to the age of 80 for non-smokers and found to be in excess of 30 percent for both males and females. Since the absolute death rate among non-smokers has been decreasing over the years and the death rate among smokers is increasing the absolute differences in survival to the age of 80 (the absolute death rate) between the two groups has widened and now exceeds 30% for both sexes based on the findings of this study.
Despite the depressing reality of the link between smoking and shortening of life span which this study proved, hopefully the optimistic conclusions with respect to the benefits of quitting smoking means the glass is half full, not half empty and will result in a global awakening and decision by many to quit smoking.

In case there was any uncertainty, Indianapolis laid everyone’s concerns to rest Sunday night in front of a national TV audience: Peyton Manning’s offense is still one of the best in the business, a championship defense can in fact be built on speed, and the Colts are the top team in the AFC South (yes, Houston we know you scored the victory Week 1).
A performance like Sunday’s win over the Giants makes the price that sportsbook have on the Colts (+400) to win the AFC look attractive and the opportunity for such an offer is likely only going to be around for a few more days.
Indianapolis is at Denver in Week 3 and Sportsbetting.com has listed the Colts as a 6- point favorite. After that one, Indy will face Jacksonville and Kansas City, a pair of 1-and-1 clubs, and even though Indy may not cover the spread in all three matchups, odds are very good they will be 4-1 SU (straight-up) by Week 6.
– Houston improved to 2-0 SU with an overtime win at Washington, who the Colts will meet in Week 6 and then Indianapolis has a bye. When they return it’s a rematch with the Texans on Monday Night Football!
Wouldn’t it be something if the Colts are 5-0 SU for that game since that loss in Houston Week 1.
‘Prospective Betting’ lines for that and every matchup from now through Week 17 are available now at the sportsbook . The current line shows Indianapolis (-6).
Eli Manning must be used to getting picked on by his older brother. It started when they were kids and even in the pros Peyton has kept on given little brother the beats.
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, though, and its possible bettors could find value looking for the Giants to go on a roll.
The last time big bros beat up on Eli was Week 1, 2006. The Giants followed that loss with a straight-up win as a divisional road dog in Philadelphia and then went on to five of their next six games SU (4-2 ATS).
New York is home for back-to-back games against two beatable foes stating Sunday (Tennessee, Chicago), and oddsmakers have listed the Giants as -3.5 favorites.
Ex-Giant Kerry Collins was calling signals for the fourth quarter of the Titans’ 19-11 loss against Pittsburgh but Coach Fisher says Vince Young will start in New York.
One quarterback that will not be back under center this week is Steve Moore. Coach Fox did not liked what he saw in either of Moore’s first two starts and announced Monday that rookie QB Jimmy Clausen will make his first NFL start Sunday when the Bengals visit Carolina.
Cincinnati (-3.5) was far better at home against Baltimore than they were in New England and early money has already started to come in on the road favorite for this inter-Conference game.
There is also concern that Steelers QB Dennis Dixon (knee) could be out longer than expected with a torn lateral meniscus that could require arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage. Ben Roethlisberger would be back with the team before Dixon but in the meantime Pittsburgh has re-signed Byron Leftwich as a backup to Charlie Batch.
Pittsburgh (-2.5) is in Tampa Bay (2-0) this Sunday and the Steelers are 0-5 ATS in their past five non-Conference meetings away from Heinz Field.
Good luck this week @ sportsbetting.com
