Steelers Try and Shake off Rust at Cincinnati – MNF Betting Week 15

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals Monday Night Football NFL Week 15

Pittsburgh has the look of a Super Bowl best bet early in the season.  However, they lacked a serious ground game to compliment Ben Roethlisberger.  This has started to catch up with them in the past couple of weeks.  Two straight losses have revealed the team’s weaknesses.  To be exact Pittsburgh relies too heavily on Roethlisberger.  And on a defense that is being taxed more due to the lack of a time-consuming ground attack.  Cincinnati was never in the 2020 NFL Playoffs mix.  A season-ending injury to Joe Burrow ruined what was left of their season.

Mean of Steel Taking on Rust

Following 11 straight wins, the Steelers emerged as a betting on Super Bowl favorite.  Losses in their last two games have changed that.  Pittsburgh is coming off a 26-15 loss at Buffalo.  As a result, they are 11-2 straight up, 8-5 vs. the odds, and 4-7 under the total.  Pittsburgh leads the AFC north over Cleveland by two games.  The Steelers rank 12th in the NFL for scoring offense.  But 31st for the rush.  Defensively they rank 3rd in the NFL and 1st for points allowed.  Pittsburgh ranks 7th for the fewest turnovers and 3rd for takeaways.

Ben Roethlisberger has had a tremendous comeback season.  Following a 2019 campaign that he missed due to injury.  Roethlisberger has a 95.0 QB rating with 29 touchdown passes and just 9 interceptions.  Of great concern is the lack of support from the ground game.  Big Ben is having to dink and dunk the ball around.  It is putting too much burden on him and the defense.

Another Bungled Season by Bengals

Last game for the Bengals was a 30-7 home loss to Dallas.  Cincinnati is 2-10-1 straight up, 7-6 on the board, and 5-7 under the total.  Overall, the Bengals rank 30th for scoring offense and 22nd for points allowed.  Which illustrates why they’re always longshots with the Super Bowl betting odds.

Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a devastating knee injury to end his season.  Overall, he was the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.  He may even miss next year.  It’s another dark cloud over a franchise that combines horrible luck with utter incompetence.
