On the other hand, Bengals overcame vicious Jets defense within the win at New York last week. Unfortunately, they haven’t recorded the back to back SU wins as of Week 13 of the last season and still considered as winless over their spread with the past three outings.
Why Bengals could cover the spread?
With the return of Andy Dalton, Bengals quarterback, following the last season-ending injury, throws 366 yards and a score against New York, however, was sacked seven times. The defense of Cincinnati chipped in with the interception in the final minute to seal the win last week, however, had busy day containing grinding Jets offense which dominated the possession time. They have dropped 5 of 6 SU against the Steelers but the reputation is well-earned.
Why Steelers could cover the spread?

However, it is the ground game of Steelers that might give them the edge over the defense of Cincinnati. And also, Steelers are 56-35 all-time against these Bengals.
