Cincinnati at Pittsburgh

1 unit on Cincinnati +100 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Steelers will welcome Ben Roethlisberger back this week, at least they hope. He lobbied hard to play last week, but discomfort modified the urgency. He is expected to start, wear a knee brace and hope the discomfort is gone, so I'm not sure what they are going to get from him. Cincinnati looks to move to 7-0 and take a 3.5 game lead in the AFC North, which would all but guarantee them the division title. The Bengals have no significant injuries, and are off their bye week, and have had plenty of time to prepare. Unbeaten teams are 14-7 ATS as a road favorite with 12 or 13 days rest, which is basically off a bye. QB Andy dalton has appeared to finally become the QB Cincinnati thought he could be, and through six games the Bengals offense has been elite, averaging 30.3 points per game. The Bengals offense, at 9.1 yards per attempt this season will carry the day for the straight up win. Take Cincinnati on the moneyline.
