Shumpty’s Punt: Best Bet 16/12/13

The Sunday Night Football game in the US pits the Cincinnati Bengals against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh. The Bengals come into this game having won three straight games by an average of 14 points per contest and possess a 9-4 record. They can lock down a finals spot with a win today and some other results falling their way. The Steelers have had a season to forget and possess a decimated offensive line that has led to talismatic quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being sacked 39 times (tied for 3rd worst record in the league).

The Bengals defence has allowed 135 plays of 10+ yards which is the fewest in the NFL whilst the Steelers have only been able to reel off 142 such plays which is the 4th worst in the league.

All of this leads me to the view that the Bengals will win this game and will cover the points spread of minus 2 points with some ease. At $1.91 the return is limited but this represents my bet of the day.

Bet: Cincinnati Bengals to cover the line (-2.0 points) against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL.

As always: please gamble responsibly.
