The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Steelers opened as a 1.5-point home underdog but now are 1-point home favorites. As for the total, it opened at 48.5 and that's where the number currently sits.

The Records

Cincinnati is 6-0 overall and 5-0-1 against the spread, while Pittsburgh is 4-3 straight up and 5-1 at the betting window. The Bengals are coming off their bye week while the Steelers lost and failed to cover as a 3.5-point road underdog in Kansas City last Sunday.

The Pick

Big Ben is back for a Steelers' team that has improved on defense but had no quarterback for four gmaes. They managed to win two of them, including beating Arizona. The return of Roethlisberger with allow them to get Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Heath Miller touches, while taking pressure off their outstanding running game. The Bengals are a very good team at 6-0, but they've also lost three straight in this series.
