NFL Betting – Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers

NFL odds week 12 action begins with this NFL betting matchup that will be televised on the NFL Network.

Many gamblers will be backing the Steelers with their football bets on Thursday. NFL betting history tells us that the Steelers have had a lot of success recently against the Bengals. 

Earlier this season in Cincinnati, the Steelers routed the hapless Bengals 38-10, easily covering the nine point NFL betting pointspread.  The Steelers are 8-2 straight up and 7-2-1 against the NFL betting pointspread in the last ten meetings against Cincinnati.  The Bengals have only covered the NFL betting number twice in the last ten games against the Steelers but gamblers making football bets should be aware that both of those games were in Pittsburgh.  In fact, both of their straight up wins were at Pittsburgh according to NFL betting stats.

On paper this looks like a mismatch in NFL betting for gamblers making football bets but strange things happen in the NFL.  It is already surprising that the Steelers have lost twice at home to the Bengals in the last three years according to NFL betting statistics.

Gamblers making football bets on the total in this NFL odds Week 12 matchup should know that three of the last four meetings between the two teams have gone under.  At Pittsburgh, three of the last four games have gone over the NFL betting number.

Cincinnati has had a number of problems this season including the key injury to quarterback Carson Palmer.  The team wasn’t playing well even when Palmer was healthy but without him their offense is last in the league according to NFL betting numbers.  The Cincinnati defense is not much better, ranking in the bottom third of the league according to NFL betting stats.

Pittsburgh has a top ranked defense, an efficient offense led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Willie Parker.  It is not surprising that most gamblers are making football bets on the Steelers in this one.
