Bengals vs Steelers Prediction & Pick

The Bengals have to be entering this game with revenge on their minds. The Steelers escaped Paycor Stadium with a 23-20 overtime win back in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season. Quarterback Joe Burrow struggled to stay efficient in that game as his 4 interceptions played a major role in the eventual loss.

When it comes down to it, Cincinnati is the more talented team here. It ranks above Pittsburgh in offensive statistical categories such as points, yards and third down conversions per game. The Bengals also boast a better turnover differential and allow fewer points as well as yards per game.

Final Score Prediction: Bengals: 24 | Steelers: 16

Bengals vs Steelers Best Bet

The Bengals head into Sunday rested and ready to go, while the Steelers will be without one of their defensive stars in Minkah Fitzpatrick. A defense that has already allowed the third-most yards to opposing wide receivers is going to have its hand full against the likes of Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

It's worth pointing out that Cincinnati is 6-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games overall. Each of its last five wins against Pittsburgh have come by at least six points as well. With an offensive line that is improving with each passing week, the Bengals should have no trouble scoring in this one.

Bet: Cincinnati Bengals -4.5 (-104)
