Our Selection : The Bengals gave the game away last week with 3 turnovers. They may have been a little over confident with the press basically giving them the division crown. This week they’re at home, facing a Steelers team that is beat up on the OL with Pro Bowl center Pouncey injured last week and is now out for the season. Look for Pittsburgh’s running game to be non existent and Big Ben running for his life throughout. Take Cincinnati 7 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
