"NFL Picks, Predictions,

When it comes to making NFL picks most pro football handicappers & sports betting experts get stuffed at the goal line, because they use NFL gambling info & NFL betting stats already factored into Las Vegas pro football lines when determining their NFL football picks & predictions each week...

FootballLOCKS.com has a different system for making NFL betting picks. We use our innovative Backwards Odds Handicapping of Las Vegas NFL odds & NFL point spreads to seek indications in the weekly NFL line as to which teams Las Vegas sports odds makers may think have an edge to cover the spread.

If you place NFL bets or gamble in a football pool, see if your NFL wagering success increases with a bet on FootballLOCKS.com's NFL expert picks & predictions... While the full card of week to week NFL game picks aren't 100% free NFL picks, we think you'll see by our subscription options that you're practically getting our NFL selections on the house.

2006 NFL Projection:
For a team that won the Super Bowl last season, the 2006 schedule for the Pittsburgh Steelers could have been tougher. For starters, having two 6-10 finishers in the division always helps. And thanks to winning the Super Bowl as a wild card team, the Steelers draw Miami and Jacksonville instead of New England and Indianapolis. That being said, Miami with Culpepper, and the tough Jaguars are not easy opponents by any stretch of the imagination. But if Roethlisberger returns from his motorcycle accident near the same playing level he exhibited in his first two seasons, the Steelers should find themselves with a good chance to retake the AFC North thanks to Cincinnati drawing the slightly tougher first place schedule, and thanks to the Steelers having a defense that surrendered 92 fewer points than that of the Bengals in 2005.

In summary, whether it's by wild card or division title, the 2006 Pittsburgh Steelers should be considered one of six teams with a good chance to represent the AFC in this season's Super Bowl as long as Roethlisberger retains his form.

Pittsburgh Steelers 2006 NFL Predictions

Week 1
Sep 7
Miami Win Projected - Defending the title in the Thursday night NFL opener versus a strong 2005 finisher that has added Dante Culpepper at quarterback may not be the easiest way to start the 2006 season. Especially with Roethlisberger out for the game. But the Steelers have a top notch defense that could make the difference.
Week 2
Sep 18
@Jacksonville Loss Projected - Every team wants to bring their A game when the champs roll into town, especially on Monday night football. Some teams are more likely to deliver than others. Although the Steelers catch a bit of a break as the kickoff temperature in Jacksonville shouldn't be as high in a night game.
Week 3
Sep 24
Cincinnati Win Projected - The Bengals want revenge, and the Steelers are on a short week. But revenge might have to wait until the final game of the regular season as Pittsburgh surrendered nearly 100 fewer points on defense compared to Cincinnati in 2005. Meanwhile the Steelers are also looking to avenge a home loss to last season's Bengals, and will be bringing a maximum effort before the bye week.
Week 4
Oct 1
BYE 2-1 at they bye if these preseason predictions for the 2006 Pittsburgh Steelers prove accurate.
Week 5
Oct 8
@San Diego Win Projected - Will the Chargers offense pick up with Rivers where it left off with Brees in this Sunday night football matchup? One thing is certain… The Steelers can bring it on the road. The Chargers found that out last season, and they could find out again.
Week 6
Oct 15
Kansas City Win Projected - One of the tougher home games of the season. The defense will need to rise to the occasion.
Week 7
Oct 22
@Atlanta Win Projected - Out of their element, but the Steelers are road warriors.
Week 8
Oct 29
@Oakland Win Projected - Can't afford to let heavy travel going back to the San Diego trip catch up with them.
Week 9
Nov 5
Denver Loss Projected - Another difficult home game. The Broncos have this one marked on the calendar.
Week 10
Nov 12
New Orleans Win Projected - If these preseason projections hold water, it's time to get back on track.
Week 11
Nov 19
@Cleveland Win Projected -Sweeping the Browns is probably a must to take the AFC North.
Week 12
Nov 26
@Baltimore Loss Projected - Lost there last season with Tommy Maddux at the helm. The Ravens will bring their all for this one again, but this time will find Big Ben at the helm… But the Steelers will find McNair at the helm, not Boller. Won't be an easy game.
Week 13
Dec 3
Tampa Bay Win Projected - The colder December weather should help the cause... Good timing.
Week 14
Dec 7
Cleveland Win Projected - Could be going for the sweep in a Thursday night football matchup.
Week 15
Dec 17
@Carolina Loss Projected - Another top team that will be ready to play the champs. However, the Panthers won't have the late Summer / early Autumn heat on their side. That's a big plus for the odds of the Steelers winning this game, but it might not be enough to get the win at Bank of America Stadium.
Week 16
Dec 24
Baltimore Win Projected - With a difficult road trip to Cincinnati on deck, the Steelers need to make sure they get this win.
Week 17
Dec 31
@Cincinnati Loss Projected - Likely to have playoff implications. A revenge spot for the Bengals who may give their all for this game whether it means qualifying for the playoffs or not.
