Bengals vs. Steelers 2013 odds: Cincy favored on road

Andy Lyons

Cincinnati is trying to move closer to a third consecutive playoff berth with a win against one of its hated rivals.

On Sunday Night Football, the Cincinnati Bengals will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in an AFC North showdown.

Heading into the primetime matchup, the Bengals are favored by 2.5 points over the Steelers, according to Oddsshark.com. The over/under is set at 40.5.

Cincinnati is currently sitting in the No. 3 seed of the AFC playoff picture. With a win and a Baltimore Ravens loss on Monday night, the Bengals would clinch the AFC North. A bye week is still attainable if Cincinnati should have a better record than the New England Patriots by one game or more over the final three weeks.

Pittsburgh's postseason dreams all but died when Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds at the 12-yard line last week against the Miami Dolphins. The Steelers need a miracle, which would consist of winning out and having the Dolphins and Ravens not earn another win.
