Let the wagering begin

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of Cantor Fitzgerald, has released the point spreads for all NFL regular season games; so naturally we had to see where the experts think the Steelers are strong and where they are not.  Let the analysis begin:

Week 1 : Steelers (+2) at Denver Broncos
The Steelers are 5-9-1, all-time, in the regular season versus Denver; and are 1-2 on the road versus Peyton Manning

Week 2 : New York Jets (+4.5) at Steelers
The Steelers are 8-1 versus the Jets in Pittsburgh

Week 3 : Steelers (-3) at Oakland Raiders
Since 2000 the Steelers are 4-3 versus Oakland, and only one of those games was played in Oakland -- a 13-20 loss in 2006

Week 4 : Bye Week

Week 5 : Philadelphia Eagles (+1) at Steelers
Michael Vick in Pittsbugh?  Everyone flashback to the 34-34 debacle in 2002

Week 6 : Steelers (-1.5) at Tennessee Titans
This will be the 13th time this two teams have met since 2000, and the 8th time they have played in Nashville

Week 7 : Steelers (-1.5) at Cincinnati Bengals
Road favorites two weeks in a row?

Week 8 : Washington Redskins (+7) at Steelers
RGIII mania makes a stop in the Steel City! The Redskins have not won a game in Pittsburgh since 1985

Week 9 : Steelers (+3) at New York Giants
The Steelers have faced both New York teams in the same season twice before -- 2000 and 2004 -- and are 3-1 in regular season games

Week 10: Kansas City Chiefs (+7) at Steelers
These teams have played 11 times since 1992, and this will be the Chiefs' second visit to Pittsburgh during that time

Week 11: Baltimore Ravens (+3) at Steelers
The late meetings may help Terrell Suggs be ready for this game

Week 12: Steelers (-6) at Cleveland Browns
There should be wagering as to who the Browns' quarterback will be by this point of the season

Week 13: Steelers (+3) at Baltimore Ravens
Already a must win game

Week 14: San Diego Chargers (+3.5) at Steelers
With all the divisional games in this stretch will the Steelers look past this one?

Week 15: Steelers (+1.5) at Dallas Cowboys
Steelers are 5-8 all-time in Dallas, 2-2 in their last four on the road against the Cowboys

Week 16: Cincinnati Bengals (+6) at Steelers
Steelers are 7-4 in their last 11 games at home versus Cincinnati
