    Why is Pgh favored this game?

    And it's not by point, they are favored by 5. Recently, Cinci has mostly been playing well and winning (save the last second loss to Dallas) and Pgh is reeling, starting dudes off their couches as DBs.

    And, Cinci has some serious weapons at WR. Green is a freak and he will be covered by....dudes we never heard of?

    And yet, Pgh is favored. Go figure.

    By the way, I do realize how lines are formed.

    No, the question remains: why does the betting public think, over all, on average, that Pgh will win by about 5?

    One annoying thing to me is the past couple games you see our DB's get picked on yet when we face a young DB or backup we don't pick on them and if we do we rarely succeed.

    Well, I guess because we are playing at home and our past success against the Bengals.
    If I was to bet the game I would take the points, I figured we would be favored by 2 1/2 points but @ 5 taking the Bengals would seem logical based on recent games.
    I look for a very close game, and if we don't turn the ball over we should win.....we are due don't you think?

    Dalton's 0-3 against the Steelers and averages about 130 yards passing per game.

    This - and it's essentially a playoff game. Who does the bettin' public trust in a playoff game? The Bungles? Or the Steelers?

    I'm not very confident about the game, given how we've played lately and the current list of injuries. But I can see how we're favored.

    Why? Because, for some reason, the betting public has more faith in the Steelers than you do...

    I wouldn't bet on the Steelers... but I wouldn't be surprised if they win by 7. Dalton hasn't shown he can beat us or the Ravens (if I'm not mistaken.)
