Pittsburgh Steelers look to sweep the series over AFC North divisional rivals Cincinnati Bengals. Here's a betting preview complete with SU, ATS, and Total Picks.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals

 

Point Spread Value

The Steelers are 8-5-0 SU and ATS with a 4.7 winning margin and +0.7 differential versus the spread. Riding a four-game winning streak and sat atop the AFC North pile they enter week 15 as the road chalk. The fact that the Bengals barely strike an audible chord in NFL betting circles this season has a lot to do with it. It’s not too much to suggest the Bengals are downright disappointing, not to mention time for an organizational restructuring. In any event, the Steelers have the momentum and the confidence, which makes them the choice week 15 NFL pick.

The Survivor

The Steelers are 8-5-0 SU and ATS and go into week 15 as the top side in the AFC North. Nevertheless, this is a must-win game if they hope to keep abreast of the Baltimore Ravens and in the playoff hunt. Last week, the Steelers edged the Buffalo Bills in a 27-20 win on the road. It’s the second road game in as many weeks, which could be a bit tricky but the Bengals don’t strike a particularly convincing pose. Sure they’ve taken advantage of some mediocre opposition in recent weeks to improve to a 5-7-0 SU record but do they really have what it takes to beat the Steelers?

Game Total

The Steelers are 4-9-0 in O/U betting while the Bengals are 6-7-0 in O/U betting. Crucially, the Steelers are 2-5-0 in O/U betting on the road with a whopping -6.6 differential versus the spread. Another interesting titbit: the Bengals have cashed on the UNDER in four of their last five games.
