Pick against the spread for Steelers vs. Bengals in Week 12 of 2023 NFL season

We give our pick against the spread for Steelers vs. Bengals in Week 12.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) will hit the road for a divisional tilt against the Cincinnati Bengals (5-5). This will be the second straight AFC North matchup for both teams. Both teams lost last week, so a win is necessary for not only the division race but the wild card race as well. Kickoff for the game is slated for 1:00 p.m. ET from Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Steelers vs. Bengals, Week 12: Pick against the spread

The Steelers fired offensive Coordinator Matt Canada during the week in hopes that it could jumpstart their offense. QB Kenny Pickett has struggled this season, even outside of the play calling. The running game has been up and down, but Jaylen Warren has been a bright spot for the team. If they want to keep pace in the playoff race, they’ll need to pick it up on offense. The Steelers suffered a brutal 13-10 loss in Week 11 at the hands of the Cleveland Browns.

The Bengals will begin life without Joe Burrow after he was ruled out for the season with a hand injury. He started the game last week against the Ravens but was seen on the sideline not being able to grip the football. He left and would not return, so the team will now turn to Jake Browning for the remainder of the year. The Bengals recovered from a 1-3 start to get back to .500, but now that Burrow is out that will likely catch up with them. The Bengals fell to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11, 34-20.
