NFL Week 9: Steelers @ Bengals (NFL Monoday Night Football Picks)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals Mon. Nov. 8th 2010 8:30pm EST
The AFC North division is arguably one of the toughest divisions in the NFL today, but even though the Cincinnati Bengals dominated the division last season by going a perfect 6-0 against divisional opponents, this season is much different as they will limp into Week 9 against the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers with four straight losses.
Needless to say, the Cincinnati Bengals playoff hopes are all but over as they have a 2-5 record and will need to win every game from here on out in order to have any chance of clinching a playoff spot in the AFC Conference. Along with struggling this season, their chances of being favored in NFL picks every week seem to be getting worse and worse.
As of right now, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the favorites to come out on top in this AFC North division showdown with a -4.5 point spread in their favor. Even though there is a slight chance for an upset here, I believe Ben Roethlisberger and company just cruise to victory this Monday as the Cincinnati Bengals will continue to struggle.
