The AFC North sees a key game on Monday Night Primetime NFL as the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-2) travel to Cincinnati to take on a Bengals team in desperate need of a win to keep their season alive (5-6).
The Steelers are giving up a 5 point head-start coming in, on the back of a six game winning streak.
They accounted for the Bengals 29 -14 in the reverse fixture and are more than capable of limiting Andy Dalton’s and the hosts throwing game having the 2nd best pass defence in the league.
With Antonio Brown in sparkling form and Big Ben Roethlisberger having thrown for eight TD’s in his last two games we expect a convincing win for Mike Tomlins charges as they look to cement homefield advantage in the post season.
The Bengals will struggle to score enough to put the Steelers under meaningful pressure and could see their slim hopes of a wild card extinguished here by the throwing of Big Ben. A comprehensive win leads us to look at a generously priced up double.
Recommendation : 1pt win Pittsburgh Steelers -6.5 points & over 43.5 points in the game @ 13/5 Paddy Power
