Cincinnati at Pittsburgh

1.5 units on Game Total OVER 44 -115 (risk 1.5 to return 1.5) RESULT: WIN
At 5-8, Pittsburgh is now pretty much looking to next year. But, with a Sunday night game against a division rival, they won't be laying down. The offense took awhile to get going this season but it's really picks up of late. After not reaching 20 points in five of their first seven games, Big Ben has tuned things around and the Steelers have scored 20 or more in six straight games, averaging 27.7, a number they didn't even reach through their first seven games. The Bengals have been a lot more explosive of late, and this is a team that has scored 41 points or more in three of their last six games. How significant is that? The Bengals had not touched 40 points in 113 straight games, and have now done it three times in six weeks. So, the offense is more capable than it has been in years. Take the OVER.
