NFL Week 1 Odds & Lines: Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Cincinnati
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 11-20-2022NFL Round Table Show The Pittsburgh Steelers play host to the Cincinnati Bengals in a crucial AFC North showdown on Sunday from Acrisure Stadium. In the first matchup between the two on the season, the Steelers were able to come out on top in overtime, in one of the league's most exciting games of the season. Since then, things have gone in opposite directions for both sides though. The Bengals sit with a 5-4 record, as they hope to make a run back into the playoffs, while the Steelers have struggled to find much success since that opening week. When these two meet, it's also an entertaining affair, which is sure to be the case in this one.
With question marks remaining on offense, their ability to move the ball will certainly be questioned. Additionally, according to covers. com, the under is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings between the two teams in Pittsburgh and is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings between the two teams overall. Prediction: Under 40.
For the Steelers, the lack of offense will haunt them in this one as well, and replicating the success of the opening week won't happen. Prediction: Bengals 3. 5 Full-Game Total Pick With the Bengals battling an injury to Chase and the Steelers welcoming back some key defensive figures, there is bound to be even at least a slight fallback for Cincinnati on the defensive end. With that, the Steelers know that they'll need to muddy this game in an effort to win it, and rely heavily on the ground game themselves to keep the Bengals off the field.

Beyond that, being able to play at home or the second-straight week is bound to help as well, especially against a divisional rival. Having one of the NFL's lengthiest injury reports hasn't helped matters for the Steelers this season. On the defensive side of things, TJ Watt (pectoral) is back in the lineup, as is Devin Bush (knee). With the defense taking shape, this team might be finding their legs at the right time. On the offensive side, Najee Harris (knee) is the name to keep an eye on for Sunday, as he's currently probable for the weekend.. @missi_matthews, @dlolley_pgh, @CraigWolfley, and @WilliamsonNFL preview our Week 11 matchup against the Bengals.

The Bengals though, only rank 27th in the league in rushing yards per game, which is a trend that'll need to change in this one. Having Joe Burrow to lead the way doesn't hurt either. Steelers Setting Eyes On Spoiler RoleThe Steelers have struggled this season but after springing the upset over the Bengals in the opener, they'll be liking their chances to replicate that success in the rematch, this time at their home. The Steelers did well to snap their two-game losing streak the last time out, taking down New Orleans by ten points the last time out. This group hasn't been great but has shocked me at times, just as they did in week one.
Injuries have hit the Bengals hard again this season, especially on the defensive side of things. The defensive line has three players questionable for this weekend, while Brandon Wilson (knee) has already been ruled out in the secondary. Despite the issues on defense, the biggest absence remains Ja'Marr Chase (hip), who expects to remain out into next month. Things are heating up (besides the weather) pic. twitter. com/MjJqVkhxhv— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) November 17, 2022 Cincinnati's offense has started to turn things around of late and while the passing game remains one of the league's best, all eyes have turned to the ground game. Joe Mixon is coming off one of the best individual performances of the last few seasons, with his five-touchdown effort the last time out.

Bengals In Playoff PictureCincinnati has felt some sense of a Super Bowl hangover this season and after running through the AFC in last year's playoffs, they now find themselves sitting at 5-4 on the 2022 season. Just making the playoffs seems like it could take some work, though winning the division remains the end goal. The schedule for the Bengals doesn't get much easier going forward though, with a road game at Tennessee awaiting next, followed by welcoming the Chiefs to town. After losing to the Steelers in week one, there's no doubt that revenge will be on their mind in this one, especially as they hit the road.
@UnibetUS | Full 🎥: https://t. co/So3Jdxv8vL pic. com/hccYlnnvf5— Steelers Live (@SteelersLive) November 17, 2022 The Steelers have struggled on both sides of the ball this season and even though they'll be welcoming some players back in this one, it might be too little too late for this group. The rush defense remains stout, though stopping the pass will be the primary concern for the defense in this one. With little experience and balance on the offensive end, serious questions remain as to how this group will find the explosive plays to keep pace.
