Bengals Steelers Betting – AFC North Rivalry Lacking as Steelers Welcome Lifeless Bengals Sunday

A game that likely would have had a spread projected as less than a field goal before the season started will be played with a double-digit line this Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to Heinz Field this Sunday. The Bengals are mired in a nine-game losing streak and have two wins in 12 games this season, just one year after winning the AFC North title. It likely won’t get any easier for Cincinnati this week, against a tough Steelers team that sits on top of the division at 9-3.

NFL Betting: Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Online Sports Betting Odds: Pittsburgh – 9.5

The Steelers knocked off the Baltimore Ravens 13-10 under the primetime lights on Sunday night, clinching their second straight win away from home to move in to sole possession of first place in the AFC North. With their next three at home before wrapping up the season in Cleveland, Pittsburgh is now in the driver’s seat to clinch home field.

Why To Bet On The Bengals

After nine straight losses it is hard to find a reason to bet on these lowly Bengals, unless you believe in that teams have to win eventually, and that may influence Cincinnati to actually keep this one close. The Bengals kept it close in their first go-around with the Steelers in week nine, threatening to provide the upset before eventually falling 27-21, but it will be much tougher this time around. It will be harder to move the ball through the air with the frigid football betting winds that blow through Heinz Field, but there may not be much of a choice if the 26th-ranked rushing attack can’t move the ball against the best run defense in the league.

Why To Bet On The Steelers

The Steelers come in to this game with confidence and as much determination as ever after knocking off the Ravens on the road to gain sole possession of the division lead. While for some that may turn in to a bit of cockiness, that’s not the case in Pittsburgh where head coach Mike Tomlin has his team humble and ready to play each and every week. The Steelers have won three straight with a balanced offense and outstanding defense, and now have the chance to showcase their betting on NFL talents in front of the home fans with three straight games within the confines of Heinz Field.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Bengals will struggle to move the ball all day, with Pittsburgh’s top-ranked run defense forcing Cincinnati to throw, and then attacking quarterback Carson Palmer with a relentless pass rush. The Steelers weren’t able to move the ball on the ground the way that they wanted to against the Ravens, but it shouldn’t be as difficult against the Bengals’ 24th-ranked run defense. Look for the Steelers to make a statement at home, with things continuing to unravel for Cincinnati.
