Why the Bengals can cover the spread
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton returned to duty following last December’s season-ending injury, throwing for 366 yards and one score against New York, but was sacked seven times. Cincinnati’s defense chipped in with an interception in the final minute to seal last week’s win, but had a busy day containing a grinding Jets offense that dominated possession time.
Cincinnati has dropped five of six SU against the Steelers, going 4-1-1 ATS, and has averaged fewer than 16 points per game in its past 12 games against its divisional rival. However, the club’s road warrior reputation is well earned after going 7-2 SU and 8-0-1 ATS in their past nine away contests.
Why the Steelers can cover the spread
The Steelers started slow in Washington before exploding for 24 unanswered points, scoring on four of their first five second-half possessions. Pittsburgh has produced mixed results at home against the Bengals, going 2-2 SU in their past four meetings, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, while being held to 10 points on two occasions.
Ben Roethlisberger found the end zone three times against the Redskins, but it is the Steelers’ ground game that could give them the edge against a Cincinnati defense that ranked 28th against the rush last season. Plus, the Steelers are 56-35 all-time against the Bengals.

From 2010 to 2012, the Steelers won five straight games in the rivalry until the Bengals defeated them at Heinz Field on December 23, 2012. On that day the Bengals clinched a playoff spot for the third time in the last four seasons, while eliminating the Steelers from playoff contention at the same time.
The rivalry has reached unprecedented heights as a result of the 2016 WildCard playoff game. After previously having bad blood between the divisional rival from incidents in the 2015 regular season, the two teams met in the postseason. The contest was rife with physical play and penalty flags on both sides. Ryan Shazier knocked Giovani Bernard unconscious and celebrated the hit on the field riling up the Bengals and their fans as no flag was thrown on the play. The game appeared over after Burfict intercepted Landry Jones, who was in due to an injury to Ben Roethlisberger after being sacked by Vontaze Burfict. But Jeremy Hill fumbled the ball and the Steelers recovered on their 9yd line with 1:36 remaining. Ben Roethlisberger returned and drove the Steelers to the Bengals 47 yard line with :18 remaining. Burfict was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver, Antonio Brown, on an incomplete pass while Jones was penalized for bumping a referee while going after Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter during the injury timeout. Porter received no flag for his actions. These fouls advanced the Steelers 30 yards with under 20 seconds remaining in the game, allowing Pittsburgh to kick a 35-yard field goal for the victory.
Burfict has been suspended by the NFL for his actions in the games; his appeal is pending. The league has stated that further disciplinary measures against members of both teams may be pending.
Pittsburgh has a 58-35 series lead against the Bengals.

Steelers vs Bengals Live Stream Prediction
The Bengals are 1-5 SU in their last six games against the Steelers.
The Bengals are 5-14-1 ATS in their last 20 games against the Steelers.
The Steelers are 4-0 SU in their last four games at home.
The Steelers will have a quick turnaround for a game both sides have been waiting eight months to play. The most physical yet least penalized team wins. Surprisingly, the league decided to schedule these two for when Vontaze Burfict served a three-game suspension. The loss of Burfict, coupled with changes in the secondary and lack of wide-receiver depth, doom the Bengals late in the fourth quarter. The Steelers revel in the perceived little-brother edge over Cincy, for now. Record: 2-0 [ Steelers vs Bengals Live Stream ]
