The Steelers will go on the road to take on the Bengals and this will be the second time these two have played each other this season. The Steelers won the first game 36-10. That’s why the Steelers come into this game as -14.5 favorites and the over under is listed at 40.5. The public is all over the Steelers to cover and this game to go under. Let’s take a closer look at this one.
The Steelers have actually lost 2 games in a row after starting the season 11-0. The first loss against the Washington Football team was a bit surprising but the second loss came to a very good Buffalo Bills team. Even before those two losses, this Steelers offense has been struggling a bit and they have been held to less than 20 points in their last 3 games. If there’s a team that they can get back on track against, it’s this Bengals team who they scored 36 on back on November 15. Big Ben threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns in that game. His passing yards player prop is set at 276 tonight. Diontae Johnson led the Steelers in receiving yards in that game with 116 but Chase Claypool hauled in 2 touchdown catches. Diontae’s receiving yard player prop is at 64.5 tonight and Claypool is +170 to score a touchdown.
The Bengals can’t wait for the season to come to a close. They are just 2-10-1 on the season and they lost their number 1 ovrall pick Joe Burrow to a knee injury. The Benglas offense has been bad all season but especially bad in recent weeks. They have been held to 10 or less points in 4 of their last 5 games. Their team total is set at 13.5 tonight. They will likely struggle against this Steelers defense that is one of the best in the league. Seeing that stat makes you wonder if the Steelers offense can turn it on and somehow get close to that over under of 40.5 themselves or if this one will be a low scoring game from both sides. 4 of the last 5 Bengal’s losses have come by more than a touchdown but only 2 of those losses came by more than 14.5.
