Cincinnati Bengals Four-Point Underdogs Against The Pittsburgh Steelers

New, comments

Home teams are usually listed as three-point favorites by default because of homefield advantage. Yet the Bengals are 5-2 on the road this year with a winning record against the spread.

Big game, son. Big game.

The Cincinnati Bengals head to Heinz Field this Sunday, not only with the intension of besting a rival, a milestone for the young foundation players on this team, but clinch a postseason berth, becoming only the second team in franchise history to claim postseason berths in consecutive seasons.

Though the Bengals are 4-5 at Pittsburgh during the Marvin Lewis era, it's going to be a nail-nibbling afternoon against a team that's simply had Cincinnati's number for so long. Again. A milestone to overcome, an achievement to reach.

That being said the Pittsburgh Steelers opened this week as four-point favorites against the Bengals. Pittsburgh is 6-8 against the spread, the Bengals are 7-6-1.
