The Cincinnati Bengals came very close to beating the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers the first time these teams met in Ohio. But if rookie quarterback Andy Dalton and company are going have a legitimate shot at a division title, they are going to have to find a way to beat them on the road this week. Even with a loss, the Bengals will remain in the thick of the AFC Wild Card battle, as they currently occupy the second spot behind Pittsburgh. However, while they have established themselves as a contender by winning games they have been expected to win, making the postseason may require taking the next step and beating one of the AFC sports betting favorites.

It won’t be an easy task against a Bengals’ team that has won six of seven, especially considering that the Steelers have only lost one game to an opponent other than the Baltimore Ravens this season. Pittsburgh is in a battle with Baltimore for the division but must earn more wins than their AFC East rivals in order to clinch that title

The Bengals actually trailed the Cleveland Browns 17-7 at the half last week before turning things around in front of their home fans at Paul Brown Stadium, but they won’t have the luxury of spotting the powerful Steelers such a big lead on the road this Sunday. Dalton completed almost 70-percent of his passes and threw for 270 yards and a touchdown for a 105.6 rating, and will need to show he can have those types of big games against a top defense in Pittsburgh. Running back Cedric Benson can certainly help the cause if he can top the 100-mark once again, as he ran for just 57 yards in a 24-17 loss to the Steelers three weeks ago.

While they haven’t blown many teams away in recent weeks, Pittsburgh has seemed to take a workmanlike approach to their games, simply taking care of business at every turn. Ben Roethlisberger threw for just 193 yards in 13-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, while four different running backs saw at least two touches. The Steelers once again won the turnover battle even despite the defense registering just a single sack on Chiefs’ quarterback Tyler Palko, and they will look to bring more pressure against Dalton this weekend.

Bengals Steelers Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Even though the Bengals proved that they could keep up with the Steelers in their first meeting and really need this win, the online wagering spread is still set at more than a touchdown, which considering the recent results for both teams seems unrealistic. Pittsburgh needs this win to keep up with the Ravens in the battle for the division, but that doesn’t mean that Cincinnati won’t at the least keep this one close.
