NFL odds Week 16: Bengals vs. Steelers

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Cincinnati is a win away from clinching a playoff berth.

One of the more intriguing games on the Week 16 schedule is the AFC North battle between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. With Pittsburgh favored by 3.5 points, according to OddsShark, it is expected to be a tight one.

A win by the Bengals gives them a playoff berth and eliminates the Steelers.

The two teams played on Oct. 21, and the Steelers won 24-17 in Cincinnati. It continued a stretch of recent dominance for Pittsburgh, who has won the last five games in the rivalry.

Overall, though, the teams are heading opposite directions. Pittsburgh has lost four of its last five games, while Cincinnati has won five of its last six games.

So far this season, the Bengals have been the safer pick. Cincinnati has covered the spread in seven of their 14 games. On the other hand, Pittsburgh has only done so five times.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
