A Thurs­day night clash be­tween AFC North divi­sion ri­vals finds both teams sit­ting tied atop the divi­sion, thanks to im­pres­sive sea­son open­ing wins last week. The visit­ing Ravens rav­aged the hap­less Bills in game they led 40-0, while the born-again Bengals ral­lied to over­take the Colts in In­di­anapo­lis. As a re­sult each of these play­off-starved hope­fuls will look to as­sert it­self as a fron­trun­ner in the loop. The Black Birds en­ter sport­ing a mark as pick or dogs on Thurs­days. And speak­ing of dogs, our all-know­ing data­base re­minds us the puppy in this se­ries is 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS the last eight matchups. Our well-oiled ma­chine chimes is not­ing that NFL away teams in Game Two of the sea­son, com­ing off a sea­son open­ing win in which they scored 40-plus points, are 11-20-2 ATS in­clud­ing 0-3-1 ATS when off a win of 40 or more points. Thus we’re hop­ing we can take a point or two with the hosts at kick­off. Stay tuned. Sun­day, Septem­ber 16
