Last choice for today in the prime-time match that closes today's NFL schedule. Five and Pitt. will give their fight today to a showdown for AFC North.
That Five. makes another good season this season and is close to his second North Division record with record 9-4. This year's season ends with two games at home after today's Minesota and Baltimore. In theory, only Baltimore threatened but I think he will still have no problem with a victory. In quite good form the team with three consecutive wins last in front of Colts (42-28). Inside is always a better team, the Bengals with their trips usually have more influence on the aggressive piece with the team scoring 7 less points than an anchor. In today's match Bengals are given as a favorite at Pitt. for the first time after 1989. A basic absence of Cinci. today's RB, while defensively losing three relatively basic players in different positions.
Pitt. with the two defeats he made is back to the wall. He has to win three victories in his last games in order to have hope and wait for help from other results. 5-8 this year's record, it is good that after today we will close with two relatively tight matches, Green Bay, Cleveland. Steelers's attack has been a lifetime lately, but unfortunately the usually strongest defense has not fluctuated to the same level, especially in the last match in the 28-34 defeat by the Dolphins. In the last 3 matches Pitt. draws about 25 points while accepting 22. Today he has to solve some problems in the defense with absences and doubt but the specific players are types that tighten the teeth and usually make their appearance on the court. Today's 7 is coming from a regular season that Steelers are given as underdogs in home games. 27-16 ATS Pitt opposite Cinci from 92 'and then an independent seat.
The two teams played earlier in the season with 20-10 victory for the Cinci. as a favorite 7 points.
Classic derby between the two teams from the same division, with Steelers being in a must win situation to stay alive for the play-offs. The Cinci. is a better team this year but the fact that they have made a small pillow in the rating may have little impact on them today. Statistically, if I believe it will go a little higher today within the Steelers as opposed to the Cinci. which is a bit fallen away always. At the end of the day, I think the match will judge who wants the most and needs the victory and the scales lean towards Steelers for me. On a money line I'll get Pitt. since the avanthog that gives them + 1.5 has no particular value. 2.15 the best price on Stoiximan.
