The Cincinnati Bengals are just 0-6-2 ATS over their last eight games against the AFC North and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games against the Steelers, but that hasn’t stopped over 28% of the 741 LVH SuperContest participants from backing Marvin Lewis’ crew (+2.5) for their Week 7 home date against Pittsburgh.
Will Marvin Lewis' Bengals keep the home dog trend alive Sunday against Pittsburgh?
In addition to the Bengals (209 selections), the Washington Redskins (209), Dallas Cowboys (207), Cleveland Browns (190) and St. Louis Rams (189) round out the top-five most popular picks for this week’s entries.
Take note that even though home underdogs are hitting at 66.67% on the season (22-11 ATS), only three teams in that situation (Cincinnati, St. Louis and Tampa Bay) made the top-10 this week.
We’re currently sitting at 13-17 on the season with the following five picks in play for Week 7:
CAROLINA PANTHERS (+2.5) vs. Dallas Cowboys
ST. LOUIS RAMS (+5.5) vs. Green Bay Packers
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (+2.5) vs. New Orleans Saints
CINCINNATI BENGALS (+2.5) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
HOUSTON TEXANS (-6.5) vs. Baltimore Ravens
