Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+4.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-4
After settling for a draw with the Detroit Lions in Week 10, the Steelers lost to the Los Angeles Chargers on the road in Week 11, 41-37. Despite the loss, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger looked great in his first start since getting off the injured reserve/COVID-19 list. Big Ben went toe to toe with Justin Herbert, passing for 273 yards and three touchdowns without an interception on 28/44 completions. That’s the kind of performance Roethlisberger wants to put up again in the rematch against Cincinnati. During the Steelers’ 24-10 home loss to the Bengals earlier this season, Roethlisberger passed for 318 yards and a touchdown but he also got picked twice. The Steelers were missing Diontae Johnson at that time. Johnson is healthy now, and had just exploded for 101 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches against the Chargers. On defense, Pittsburgh hopes to see its major pieces on defense back after playing against the Chargers without TJ Watt, Joe Haden, and Minkah Fitzpatrick. All three have chances to return in Week 12.
The Steelers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games.
Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (-4.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-4
The Bengals snapped a two-game losing skid by taking down the Las Vegas Raiders in Sin City last Sunday, 32-13. Joe Burrow was unspectacular in that game, as he went 20/29 for 148 passing yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions, but he drove the offense just deep enough multiple times to set kicker Evan McPherson for four field goal attempts, which were all drilled. Burrow played much better in the first meeting with the Steelers, though. He went 14/18 in that game for 172 passing yards and three touchdowns and an interception. If the Steelers continue to miss their top guys on defense, Burrow can have a field day leading the Bengals’ air attack together with rookie wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who had two receiving TDs in the win over Pittsburgh. There’s also running back Joe Mixon, who can once again torch the Steelers. He had 90 rushing yards on 18 carries in the first showdown this season with Pittsburgh.
The Bengals are 2-1-1 against the spread in their last four home games against Pittsburgh.
The Steelers win, 24-21.
