What’s the best medicine for a two-game losing streak? How about the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 14.5-point favorites over the Bengals on Monday Night Football, suggesting that this game shouldn’t be all that competitive.
But unless you’re eyeing the moneyline, the straight-up result isn’t really what matters for NFL bettors.
With this in mind, let’s turn to our NFL PRO Report, which is illuminating not only the best way to bet Steelers vs. Bengals, but what may also be the smartest bet of the entire NFL week.
NFL Picks: Steelers vs. Bengals
The Steelers vs. Bengals over/under opened at 41.5, but now sits at 40 (click here for the latest Monday Night Football odds) thanks to professional betting action.
Wiseguys steamed the under earlier in the week, helping to inspire the 1.5-point line move.
The under is also the preferred landing spot of big bettors, as 49% of the money wagered has landed on that side of the total on just 29% of the tickets.
While overall action is basically split, this tells us that the larger wagers have come in on the under thus far.
It’s going to be breezy tonight at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, with 11-12 mph winds expected throughout the game.
These conditions make the Steelers vs. Bengals under a match for our High Winds PRO Betting System, which has a 56% win rate since 2003.
Two of our top NFL betting experts are joining the party by piling on the under as well.
And while the consensus total has dipped to 40, there are still plenty of sportsbooks, like BetMGM, at 40.5, so be sure to shop and grab the best line possible.
