NFL Straight Bet – Week 15 – Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati

Take Pittsburgh -3 away vs. Cincinnati

The Breakdown:

Pittsburgh got the road victory in tough winter conditions on Sunday, as they defeated Buffalo 27-20. Cincinnati also got a road win against their interstate rival, as they finished off a winless Cleveland squad easily 23-10. This is usually one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL, especially after the incidents with Burfict’s alleged intentional roughing of Antonio Brown and Le’veon Bell. Pittsburgh will have the opportunity to get a sweet road victory here, as they come in having won 4 straight with 3 road wins in that time. They’ve been able to score 24+ points in each game during that stretch, while Cincinnati only averages 20.6 PPG. Right now, Pittsburgh owns the #3 seed in the AFC playoff picture, and will look to build on their lead over Baltimore in the division. Another matchup to watch is Bell vs this Cincinnati defense, as Bell is coming off a record breaking performance of 236 rush yds and 3 TDs and he faces a 25th ranked run defense. Pittsburgh should be able to handle them easily in this one.
