AccuScore Game Preview: Steelers AT Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t fared too well against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the franchise’s history, having been on the losing end of plenty of games over the past couple of decades. Since 2000, the Bengals are 7-20 against their divisional rivals. It seems, though, that the momentum has shifted and the Bengals are without a doubt the better team.
AccuScore simulated the match-up 10,000 times and won approximately 60 percent of the games. They’re a fairly heavy favorite to win tonight, but the same data projects a close game also. What stands out the most from the info below is Pittsburgh’s probability to commit that second turnover. It’s a game of inches and that second turnover WILL cost them the game. Keep an eye out for that, especially in the second half.
