Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio
Betting Line / Total: Pittsburgh -5 / 43.5 Points
The Steelers didn't run away with last Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers as many expected them to, but a late drive to set up a game-winning field goal helped Pittsburgh walk away with a 31-28 win.
With a 9-2 SU and 6-5 ATS record, the Steelers are tied with the New England Patriots for the top record in the AFC. A matchup with New England looms large on the schedule in Week 15, but Pittsburgh can't afford to look ahead with two division rivalry games on the docket.
Over their last nine games as a road favorite, the Steelers are 8-1 SU and 5-3 ATS per the OddsShark NFL Database.
Since opening the season with an 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS record, the Bengals have been a lot more competitive with a 5-3 SU and ATS record over their last three games including a current stretch of 3-0 ATS.
While there isn't much room for error left, Cincinnati is still very much alive for a playoff spot at 5-6 SU and 6-5 ATS in the wide open AFC wild card race. The Bengals will be trying to snap out of 1-7 SU streaks both against the Steelers and in night games this Monday night.
Monday night's total is set at 43.5 points. The UNDER is 15-2 in Pittsburgh's last 17 games as a road favorite.
While the Steelers have been playing great over the course of their current six-game winning streak, four of those six games have been decided by six points or less. Facing a hated division rival that is fighting for its season at home, this one doesn't figure to be an easy one for Pittsburgh.
