The two teams will meet at the Heinz Field in what will be a very interesting game.

Pittsburgh Steelers Form
The Pittsburgh Steelers need to win this game. Therefore, they will have a chance to get into the playoffs. Also, the Steelers are heading into this game in a good form. Moreover, their recent home record is solid as they won 4 of their last 5 games.
Ben Roethlisberger has an average of 66.8 per cent of his passes for 4,842 yards, 33 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

The Bengals have been playing bad. Especially their drop of form escalated in recent weeks. Moreover, they had a few coaching changes. Furthermore, the increased number of injuries does not help them either.
On the other side, the Steelers had to accept a hard loss against the Saints. It will be hard for them to get back to winning ways after that disappointment. However, the Steelers have been scoring more than 30 in their last 4 home games. That is why I will go with Over 45.5 in this game.
