Public backing Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals meet up in tonight’s highly-anticipated NFL Wild Card Playoff Game. Who does the public like in this battle?
According to oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag, Pittsburgh is favored on the road in today’s playoff game, as the Steelers are getting odds of -2 points against the Bengals. The over/under total for the game has been set at 44.5 points. These two meet tonight at 8:15PM ET on CBS.
The public betting for tonight’s game is backing Pittsburgh by a somewhat small margin. The Steelers are currently getting 60 percent of the wagers as a 2-point road favorite against the Bengals. In the two meetings this season, the road team has won and covered the spread in both contests.
Pittsburgh has actually won and covered the spread in four of its last five meetings with the Bengals. The Steelers have won four of their last five, going 3-2 ATS in those five games. The Bengals are just 2-2 in their last four, going 2-2 ATS in those four games as well. While both teams are dealing with injuries, the loss of Andy Dalton for the Bengals may have more impact in the bettors’ eyes than the loss of DeAngelo Williams for the Steelers.
