The Bengals are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Steelers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. AFC. The Bengals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Pittsburgh and 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 meetings overall.
The Steelers have hung around and came away with solid wins without Big Ben in the lineup. Now the franchise QB is back on the field. The Bengals have to lose eventually and have come close the past couple of weeks. I'll take the home team in a pick em.
