PITTSBURGH, PA (The Spread) – A crucial game in the AFC North will take place in Pittsburgh today when the Steelers host the Bengals at 1:00PM ET. Can the Steelers keep their playoff hopes alive with a victory?

NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest NFL trends, the favorite is 5-0 agianst the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Bengals are 7-19-1 against the spread in their last 27 games versus the Steelers. Cincinnati is also 1-4 against the number in its last five trips to Pittsburgh, and the Steelers are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games versus a team with a winning road record. The Bengals might have the better record and they might even have the better team but they have a complex when it comes to playing the Steelers and Ravens. They’ve struggled to beat Pittsburgh and Baltimore over the years and with the Steelers’ backs up against the wall, don’t look for that trend to stop today.
