The Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers have a combined 0-6 SU record, but one of them could end their winless drought this Sunday, when they lock horns for a matchup between the bottom dwellers of the AFC North. The Bengals and the Steelers are +10000 and +2000 to win the division, respectively.

Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (0-3)
The Bengals may not be as horrendous as what their record suggests. They could have had two wins after three weeks, but close losses to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 and to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday by a total of five points should make them a believers of themselves still. In their 21-17 road loss to the Bills, Andy Dalton passed for 250 yards and a touchdown with an interception. He also had a rushing TD on a short 1-yard rumble to the end zone. The Bengals are missing the service of star wide receiver AJ Green, and the player’s status remains up in the air heading into Week 4. In any case, Dalton still have a talented receiving crew, which features John Ross III and Tyler Boyd. If the Bengals could be more careful with the ball and avoid making unforced errors and foolish penalties, meaning play with more discipline, they should be in a fine position to win games, especially against the Steelers, who are only 28th in the league in scoring defense with 28.3 points allowed per game.
The Bengals are 6-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last six road games.
Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3)
The Steelers gave Mason Rudolph the chance to start in Week 3 with Ben Roethlisberger out for the remainder of the season, but the former Oklahoma State Cowboys star failed to lead his team to a victory, losing to the San Francisco 49ers on the road, 24-20. In his debut as a starter in the NFL, Rudolph passed for 174 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 14 of 27 completions. He targeted JuJu Smith-Schuster seven times, and the wide receiver had 81 receiving yards on three carries. Another week of practice could give Rudolph a better grasp of the position he’s filling in and a more fluid chemistry with his receivers. Speaking of receivers, tight end Vance McDonald is questionable to play on Sunday due to a shoulder injury. The Steelers just pulled off a trade with the Seattle Seahawks for TE Nick Vannett, which could be taken as a sign that McDonald will be out. The Steelers are averaging 16.3 points per game.
The Steelers are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games against the Bengals.
The Steelers win, 26-24.
