3* Sunday Night Football "Total" Dominator on Steelers/Bengals Over 45.5
Expect to see plenty of offense when the Steelers and Bengals lock horns Sunday night.

Pittsburgh clearly isn't the same defensive force it has been as it's giving up an average of 23.0 points per game. It has especially struggled on the road, where it has given up an average of 30.3 points per game.

The Cincinnati defense has struggled as well as it is allowing 27.2 points per game.

Both offenses have been sufficient as they both average over 23 points. The thing that really bodes well for us is both team's desire to pass the football. The Steelers rank 7th in the NFL in passing offense with 285.7 yards per game and the Bengals rank 8th in passing offense with 282.8 yards per game. When the ball is sailing through the air, it provides opportunities for points to be scored without a lot of time running off the clock.

The Over is 4-0 in the Steelers' last 4 road games. The Over is 4-0 in the Bengals' last 4 games following a SU loss, 4-0 in their last 4 games versus AFC North foes, 4-0 in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and 5-0 in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

The over is also 6-0 in Cincy's last 6 home games versus good passing teams that average 7 or more passing yards per attempt. We have seen an average of 48.2 total points scored in this situation.

Lastly, the Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two in Cincinnati. Bet the Over.
