A game between two winless teams mightn’t seem very exciting, but there’s always plenty of fireworks whenever these two AFC North rivals get together.
Nothing more than a touchdown separated the Bengals and the Steelers in their two meetings last year, and after a very sluggish start to the season, it’s surprising to see the Steelers favoured so heavily in the market.
That said, Mason Rudolph, Ben Roethlisberger’s rookie replacement, looked just fine during last week’s loss to the 49ers on the road. The 24-year-old threw for 174-yards and a pair of touchdowns – decent numbers after dropping back to pass 27 times in his debut.
The Bengals also fell in similar fashion against the Bills. Cincinnati trailed by two touchdowns at half time, right before piling on 10-points in the fourth quarter to go on and lose 21-17.
Pittsburgh won both games over Cincinnati last year, but there’s still a lot to like about the Bengals. The running game finally showed some signs of life last week as Joe Mixon rushed for 61-yards, while the defence forced a pair of turnovers.
Better yet, the Bengals also hold a 6-1 record against the line in their last seven games. Cincinnati is also 6-0 in their last six games on the road, so it’s worth taking on the Steelers with a generous spread set.
Tip: Pittsburgh Steelers at $1.50
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: James Conner at $6.50
