The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 of the NFL regular season at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio on Sunday afternoon.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were 3-0 in the preseason and defeated Detroit, Jacksonville, and Seattle. Pittsburgh has decided to start Mitch Trubisky instead of Kenny Pickett to replace Ben Roethlisberger this season. Trubisky will get a chance to start fresh after a disappointing end to his time in Chicago. Pittsburgh has Najee Harris to help Trubisky by running the ball and a good receiver group for him to throw to. On the defensive side of the ball, Pittsburgh should be solid and has some really good players that will make it tough on the Bengals.

The Cincinnati Bengals were 1-2 during this preseason, losing to the Giants and Cardinals, while they were able to defeat the Rams. The Bengals will have Joe Burrow under center once again after he led them to a loss in the Super Bowl last season. Burrow did have an out of football injury this preseason, but he says he is 100% coming into this game. The Bengals will have Joe Mixon running the ball and Ja’Marr Chase will be Burrow’s favorite target once again. The Cincinnati offense should be very good and the defense should be solid just like last year.

Pittsburgh is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against the AFC North and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The under is 43-18-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 62 road games. Cincinnati is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 5-0 in Cincinnati’s last 5 games. Pittsburgh is 21-10-1 ATS in these two teams last 32 head to head meetings.

It will be interesting to see how the Bengals will play with Joe Burrow not playing in the preseason and coming off the Super Bowl loss last season. The Pittsburgh offense should start fast as Trubisky was playing for the starting spot all preseason. I think Cincinnati could start slow this season as they try to get some rhythm and the Steelers have been really good against them against the spread. I like Pittsburgh to keep it close here.
