4* Vegas Insider on Cincinnati Bengals -
Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati,
09/16/2013 20:40 EDT,
Score: 10 - 20
Point Spread: -6/-110 Cincinnati
The Pittsburgh Steelers looked horrible in their first game of the season, and there is no reason to believe that will be changing today. It’s not like they were without their starting quarterback, or some other marquee player. No, the Steelers were short a tight end and a kicker. They were beat up on by a Tennessee team picked to finish last in their division.
The Bengals looked good in their season opener, but failed to pick up a win on the road over a quality opponent. With the Steelers gaining 32 yards on the ground and 163 yards through the air last week, I can’ only imagine how lopsided this game will be. The Bengals did not run the ball well either, but they still had double the yardage of the Steelers. They had 277 yards through the air, and A.J. Green looks like he will be hard for any opposing defense to contain.
In head-to-head meetings between these teams the favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last six games. The Steelers are 2-8 in their last 10 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game. The Bengals on the other hand are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against AFC opponents and 4-1 ATS in their last five games after accumulating more than 250 passing yards in their previous game.
