SUNDAY NFL SUPER SEVEN #7
Pittsburgh Steelers (8-0) vs Cincinnati Bengals (2-5-1)

The Cincinnati Bengals have equaled their win total from last season and despite posting just two wins in eight games to this point, the fact is that the Bengals have been playing a lot better than their record would indicate. Outside of a blowout against Baltimore, Cincinnati’s other four losses this season have come by 5 points or less. Ben Roethlisberger had a bit of a COVID scare earlier in the week and even if the Steelers say that Big Ben’s knees aren’t an issue, I’m not sure how much I’m really believing it as he looked to be in a lot of pain last week. The Steelers are 8-0, but five of their wins have been by 7 points or less, including last week’s eye-opener against a terrible Dallas team. Cincinnati is much better than Dallas, and just beat the same Tennessee team that gave the Steelers all they could handle a couple of weeks ago. Cincinnati’s also an NFL best 6-1-1 ATS this season, 9-2-2 ATS in their last 13 as underdogs and 11-2-1 ATS in their last 14 as road underdogs. That’s more than enough to take the Bengals and the points as a premium pick for this game.
