NFL betting will be popular this week on the Pittsburgh Steelers as they travel to Cincinnati to meet the winless Bengals.
Pittsburgh is an 11 point road favorite in NFL Week 7 odds action. Not many gamblers are looking at the Bengals but in football betting anything is possible which is why the Bengals have a shot in this game.
NFL betting stats show that Pittsburgh has won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. The Steelers are also 6-3-1 against the football betting number in those games. At Cincinnati, the Steelers have owned the Bengals, going 5-0 straight up and 4-0-1 against the NFL betting pointspread. Last year the Steelers won 24-13 at Cincinnati. The Steelers are just a .500 team in NFL betting the past three seasons laying points on the road. The Bengals though are awful at home as an underdog, going 1-5 versus the NFL betting number in their last six games at home getting points.
The Steelers have gotten solid play on both sides of the ball this season according to football betting stats. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been good all year and the running game, even with Willie Parker missing time, has been pretty good according to NFL betting experts. The Bengals on the other hand have been terrible on offense according to NFL betting stats. Quarterback Carson Palmer has been hurt and even when healthy he was not playing well according to NFL betting experts. The defensive edge goes to Pittsburgh in this game and that could be the difference for the Steelers.
