Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals | Tuesday 22nd December 2020, 01:15 | Sky Sports
Facing the Bengals this Monday night should come as welcome relief for the Steelers who, after starting the season 11-0, have dropped two straight games to fellow AFC contenders. A Cincinnati team that you’ve beaten 11 games in a row and is starting a 3rd string QB certainly looks like it should be the tonic Pittsburgh needs to get back to winning ways.
The Steelers should, if they have aspirations of a Super Bowl this year, make sure this game isn’t close as they are by far the more talented team, but I generally don’t like double-digit handicaps when we see garbage time TDs each week.
I do like the matchup that Pittsburgh TE Eric Ebron has this week though; Cincinnati’s defence has given up 867 yard to TEs this year, which is the 2nd most in the league. Recently Ebron had become more of a red zone specialist with the Colts, but his role with the Steelers this year is a little more expansive and is currently 10th in yards at his position.
Ebron’s been given a minimum of 5 targets in all but 2 games this year and has 27 in his last 3 games. He should have a decent amount of opportunities again this week and so I’ll be backing a TE for the 2nd week in a row. Ebron to have Over 36.5 receiving yards is my pick this week.
One for Game Pass’ Game in 40 in the morning I’d say for this game.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals – Eric Ebron Over 36.5 Receiving Yards (5/6 Bet365)
