Pittsburgh at Cincinnati

Sunday 12/31 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Pittsburgh +6 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)  RESULT: WIN

Will this be Bill Cowher's last game as a Steelers coach after 15 years? Maybe. If it is, do you think his players want to send him off on a winning note? We do. Cincinnati has playoff hopes alive but they need a loss by the Jets to the hapless Raiders or a Denver loss and KC win. The pressure to win hasn't helped the Bengals the past few weeks so why today? Pittsburgh is off a humiliating 31-7 loss last week to the Ravens. They are going to come to play and lay it all out there. This team has pride and they don't want to make a bad season worse by losing their finale, especially after losing so badly last week. The Steelers have beaten the Bengals 12 of the last 15 times here in Cincinnati including three straight. There will be no intimidation here. Pittsburgh sends Cowher out with a bang here as they likely win this game outright! We'll take the points as insurance but love the Steelers' chances here.
