Analyzing The Bengals Vs Steelers Online Football Betting Odds To Decide The AFC North

The Bengals don’t get the respect that a team that has only lost four games this year should get. The biggest question limiting this teams potential is: Is Andy Dalton a Super Bowl calibre QB?

Coming off a 37-28 win against the Denver Broncos, you better believe Cincinnati has the talent to beat anyone in the NFL.

Dalton is completing 63.5 percent of his passes for 3,154 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Dalton has two touchdowns and two picks in his last two games. WRs A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu have combined for more than 1,700 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while TE Jermaine Gresham has 12 receptions in his last two games. Green is questionable for this game with a bicep injury.

The Bengals ground game is averaging 4.4 yards per carry, as rookie rusher Jeremy Hill leads the way with 1,024 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.

Defensively, the Cincinnati Bengals are allowing 21.1 points, 360.2 yards, and they’ve forced 20 sacks and 23 turnovers. Vincent Rey leads Cincy with 114 tackles and Carlos Dunlap has eight sacks.

The Bengals have the 16th ranked passing defense and the 23rd ranked rush defense. They are allowing allowing 21.1 points, 360.2 yards, and they’ve forced 20 sacks and 23 turnovers.

The Steelers have won three in a row and four of their last five games, including a 20-12 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs last week. "It was such a sense of urgency this week, knowing what was at stake," defensive end Cameron Heyward said. "I just thought we answered the challenge."

Pittsburgh has the 2nd ranked passing offense in the league, only behind the Indianapolis Colts, with QB Ben Roethlisberger throwing 4635 yards, 30 TDs & 8 INTs this season. WR Antonio Brown leads the league with 1570 yards & 12 TDs. The Steelers also boast the 13 ranked rushing attack on the legs of Steelers MVP Le’Veon Bell who has 2115 all-purpose yards & 11 TDs with one game to play in the regular season.

"We knew we had the talent, and that it was just a case of us being consistent and putting it together," said Le’Veon Bell, who is tied for the league lead with eight touchdowns from scrimmage since Week 11. "It might not have looked like we were making progress, but we knew that if we kept doing what we were supposed to be doing, we’d be all right."

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin leads the series against Marvin Lewis 11-4 over 15 meetings, and have won six of the seven games against him when playing at Heinz Field.
