NFL Free Pick: Take the under. According to latest NFL trends, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall and 4-0 in the Bengals' last four home games. The under is also 6-0 in the Bengals' last six games versus the AFC, 4-1 in their last five games versus a team with a losing record, and 8-2 in their last 10 games overall. The under is also 8-0 in the Steelers' last eight games in Week 2, 7-2 in their last nine games versus the AFC North, and 5-2 in their last seven games following an ATS loss. Pittsburgh can't run the ball and Cincinnati's defense is one of the more underrated in the NFL. Look for Ben Roethlisberger and Co. to struggle for the second straight week and for Pittsburgh's defense to corral A.J. Green.
