The NFL is providing plenty of interesting games in Week 11, and one of them is this conference clash on Sunday, November 20, so here you can check out the best Bengals vs. Steelers betting pick and odds.

Cincinnati is looking to stay right behind Baltimore in the divisional standings with a win over the Steelers when they visit Pittsburgh at Acrisure Stadium. The Bengals are 5-point favorites on MyBookie Sportsbook, while the total is set at 41 points. These AFC North foes have already met this season, and the Steelers surprised the Bengals with a 23-20 overtime win in Cincy.

Bengals erupted for 42 points in a win over the Panthers

The Cincinnati Bengals (5-4-0, 6-3-0 ATS) displayed their best offensive performance of the season in a 42-21 home victory over the Carolina Panthers. Although one would think that Joe Burrow exploded for four or five passing touchdowns in this big win, which actually wasn’t the case. Cincinnati destroyed the Panthers on the ground and scored a season-high 42 points. The Bengals dominated total yards (464-228), first downs (30-13), and possession (39:21-20:39), while the hosts forced three turnovers and committed none on the other end.

Joe Burrow completed 22 of 28 passes for 206 yards and one touchdown, along with one rushing TD. Joe Mixon had a terrific game as he recorded four rushing and one receiving touchdown, in what was the best game of his career. Mixon led all the runners with 153 yards on 22 carries, while he and Tee Higgins combined for 118 receiving yards on 11 targets. On defense, Akeem Davis-Gaither and Markus Bailey posted six tackles apiece.

WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) and TE Drew Sample (knee) are unavailable and will not be ready to face the Steelers on Sunday. DT Josh Tupou (calf), CB Tre Flowers (hamstring), and S Dax Hill (shoulder) are questionable.

Steelers got a win over the Saints thanks to a strong defense

The Pittsburgh Steelers (3-6-0, 4-4-1 ATS), just like the Bengals, played their best game in Week 10 as they beat the New Orleans Saints 20-10 at home. It was their best defensive display of the campaign, as they were fueled up by T.J. Watt’s return from injury. The Steelers allowed a season-low ten points and kept the visitors off the scoreboard in the second half. They were better in every segment, including total yards (379-186), first downs (28-10), and possession (38:56-21:04), while the Steelers forced a pair of turnovers and didn’t commit a single one on the other side.

Kenny Pickett completed 18 of 30 passes for 199 yards. He did record a rushing touchdown and finished the game with 51 rushing yards on eight attempts. Najee Harris fell a yard short of a 100-rushing yard mark, but he led all the runners, while Diontae Johnson registered a game-high 63 receiving yards on four catches. Defensively, Robert Spillane led Pittsburgh with seven tackles, while Alex Highsmith had two sacks.

K Chris Boswell is on the injured reserve list with a groin injury, and there is no timetable for return. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) and S Minkah Fitzpatrick (appendix) are questionable to play on Sunday against Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Pick  

Pittsburgh has one of the weakest offenses in the NFL that averages just 15.6 points per game. The Steelers score more than 20 points only once this season and guess what, it was in Week 1 against Cincinnati. I doubt they will score more than 20 in this one because the Bengals are allowing 20.6 ppg to their opponents. Pittsburgh is delighted to have T.J. Watt back in the lineup, but this defense is not the one we used to watch in previous years, especially the secondary. In fact, the Steelers have the third-worst pass defense in the league, and knowing Joe Burrow and Cincy’s receivers, they are going to slice them open on Sunday.

The Pick: Take the Bengals at -3.5 (-125)

The Total

The Steelers’ pass rush received a boost with Watt’s return and although I am backing Burrow and the visitors to get a win here, I do expect the hosts to put pressure on Cincy’s QB. However, the Bengals showed that they can run as well, through excellent Joe Mixon, so if their pass offense doesn’t work, they can turn to run. In any case, Cincinnati is going to control the game clock, and I don’t see a high amount of points here. Under is 6-2-1 in the last nine H2H meetings; Under is 8-0-1 in the Bengals’ previous nine vs. AFC rivals, while Under is 7-1 in the Steelers’ last eight home games.

Pick: Go Under 43.5 points (-133)
