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.
