A massive matchup in the AFC North division comes up this Saturday afternoon as Pittsburgh Steelers await Cincinnati Bengals. Both of these crews are in the playoff hunt with the note that the Bengles have one win more than their fourth-coming rivals. 

Before Betting on Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers 

The Bengals have three straight victories, and it seems that their backup quarterback, Jake Browning, adapted to the NFL demands over the past few weeks. Sure, he isn’t a youngster anymore, but like anybody else, he needed a little time to adapt. 

Browning debuted against the Steelers and, after that, significantly improved the Bengals’ offense, which scored 95 points in total in the upcoming three contests, with him throwing five touchdown passes. Two of these three victories came following overtime, and that shows that this team is resilient despite missing one of the best players in the league, Joe Barrow. 

After defeating the Bengals a month ago, the Steelers suffered three consecutive defeats, two of them at home, complicating their situation in the playoff hunt. It’s incredible to see Mike Tomlin’s team slowing down like this, even though they, too, experienced several big-time injuries. 

The offense is terrible, generating 41 points across these three meetings, and we don’t want to sound harsh, but Mitch Trubisky isn’t the player for the NFL. He is inconsistent, his decisions are questionable, and, on top of all, he ruins the team’s morale.

The weather in Pittsburgh will be bad, and when we add that both teams play with backup quarterbacks (despite Browning’s solid form), the most logical choice here is to bet on under 38 points. Defenses will decide the winner of this contest, and that’s nothing strange for AFC North, which has always been the home of ruthless defensive units.
