Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals OddsNFL week 16 is coming up fast, and there are two teams that need to win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. This week will be fun for all NFL betting fans. The Cincinnati Bengals will be taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Cincinnati. The winner will most likely get that no. 6 AFC playoff berth.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have been playing less than great as of late, and there are questions of whether or not they will get a Wild Card game. Their loss last week in overtime to the Dallas Cowboys did nothing to help the Steeler cause. A bad interception eventually lost the game for the Steelers as they allowed the Cowboys to score on two consecutive drives to tie the game at the end of the fourth quarter. Ben Roethlisberger is a better quarterback than Andy Dalton as he averages 243 passing yards per game. The Steelers have not shown any desire to get the job and keep allowing games to slip through their fingers.

The Steelers have been the favorites on many online betting sites for the last couple weeks and have not delivered.

 

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals are currently sitting in the sixth seed Wild Card spot and are hoping to hold onto it. They dominated the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 and are hoping for the same success in week 16. However, it was not their best game. It took everything they had to hold back the Eagles, then were able to capitalize on the Eagle’s offensive errors. Andy Dalton has been decent this season with 26 touchdowns and 3313 passing yards. He averages 227 passing yards per game. BenJarvus Green-Ellis leads the Bengals with six touchdowns and 1080 yards, while A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham lead the receivers. Even though Roethlisberger is better than Dalton, the Bengals have the advantage on the ground. The Bengals average 120 rushing yards per game, compared to the Steelers 98 yards. Many bookies like the underdog chance in the Bengals and we may see that represented in early betting lines.

This game has the possibility of going into overtime, but many sports book reviews are expecting that Cincinnati walks away the winner. Pittsburgh has been playing their way out of the post season, and the determined Bengals will be hard to stop. However, if the Bengals play like they did against the Eagles, then the game will go in favor of the Steelers.
