Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals AFC North NFL Betting Online Picks

Facing the Atlanta Falcons on the road, the Steelers came away with a massive 41-17 beating over Matt Ryan. It was impressive to see the Steelers run up the scoreboard against Atlanta, but it was even more impressive to see their defense hold the Falcons offense to sub-20 points.

The Steelers enter this weekend’s sporting a 2-2-1 record that ranks them 3rd in the AFC North. As aforementioned, the Steelers had a rough start to the season, going 1-1-1 in their first three games of 2018. They had an opportunity to bounce back in Week 4 when they hosted the Ravens but ended up conceding a 26-14 home loss to their divisional rivals. Ultimately Pittsburgh’s fan base needed a sign that things were going to be alright this season and this past weekend’s win over Atlanta certainly proved that. However, the Bengals are a much tougher team than the Falcons are this season. With that in mind, this weekend’s matchup should let us gage how tough the 2018 Pittsburgh Steelers are.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (1,664 passing yards, 11 TD, 6 INT), James Conner (342 rushing yards, 5 TD, 2 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (450 receiving yards, 2 TD, 0 F).
The Bengals leap into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 4-1 record that ranks them as the best team in the AFC North. Right now Cincys’ biggest threat are the second seeded Baltimore Ravens, who are 3-2 this season. Having said that, a win against the Steelers would help Cincinnati secure their AFC North lead. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that the Bengals will have the upper hand this Sunday. Defensively both sides are roughly even, with the Steelers giving up 26.6 and the Bengals allotting 26.0. On offense however, Andy Dalton’s crew has a bigger advantage but not by much. The Steelers are putting up 28.6 per game which is slightly less than the 30.6 that the Bengals deliver.
Players to Watch: Andy Dalton (1,445 passing yards, 12 TD, 7 INT), Joe Mixon (272 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and AJ Green (409 receiving yards, 5 TD, 26 REC).
