Steelers on Fire ATS Against Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers Le'Veon Bell

Are the Cincinnati Bengals for real? That’s the question that has been hanging over their heads over the past few years, as the Bengals haven’t been able to parlay solid regular seasons into postseason success. But in light of a blazing 6-0 start to the 2015 campaign, Andy Dalton’s club look like they can go toe-to-toe with anybody and have a matchup with hated rival Pittsburgh on the docket in Week 8.

Shark Bites
  • The Steelers are 8-1 SU and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games after a loss.
  • The Bengals are 2-8 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against the Steelers.
  • The Bengals are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games in November.

The Steelers have been forced to play without star QB Ben Roethlisberger but he should be back in the fold for Week 8, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin told reporters after Sunday’s 23-13 loss to the Chiefs that “Big Ben” will likely return to action against the Bengals. Roethlisberger was a game-time decision against K.C. which forced third-string QB Landry Jones to make his first career start.

Cincy and Pittsburgh have been continuing to reward their bettors this year. The Bengals are 5-0-1 ATS, while the Steelers are 5-1-1 ATS.
