Betting market: The Steelers are unsurprisingly a trendy road dog in Cincinnati vs. the AFC North-leading Bengals. At the time of writing, this line dropped to 2 and at some offshore books (Pinnacle, BetOnline) it sits at +1.
The total, which opened at 54.5, has gradually been on the decline. Over/under bets are nearly split, but the under was getting around 80% of the dollars at the time of writing (see live betting data here). — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: Pittsburgh defeated Atlanta, 41-17, in Week 5. Teams that won their previous game by 21 or more points have gone 312-348-20 (47%) against the spread in their next game. If they are listed as underdogs that record drops to 84-111-8 (43%) ATS, per our Bet Labs data. — John Ewing
The Bengals enter the game hot — like really hot. They are 4-1 straight up and ATS so far this season.
Since 2012, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has faced a team better than .500 as an underdog 15 times, Big Ben is 10-5 SU and 10-4-1 ATS. Three of Roethlisberger’s four ATS losses have come against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. — Evan Abrams
