What are the best bets to make on Week 3’s matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers?

Poll a few of those arrogant Pittsburgh Steelers fans, and they’ll arrogantly tell you that this isn’t a rivalry for them. Some Steelers fans look down their noses at the Cincinnati Bengals.

Sure, it’s been a pretty one-sided battle in recent years. The Black and Gold lead the overall series by a 67-36 margin, but don’t let anyone fool you.

Pittsburgh knows exactly who this Bengals team is, especially after dropping one to them in their last meeting. There’s been some discrepancy as to who people believe the Steelers are. Are they legitimate contenders, or are they too inconsistent?

Here’s what we can say. If they overlook Cincy in Week 3, they’ll suffer a second-consecutive loss and find themselves looking up at the Bengals in the divisional standings. Let’s get into some specifics.

Best Cincinnati Bengals bets for Week 3

Bet No. 1

  • Anytime TD Scorer (Joe Mixon) -146

Joe Mixon has -146 odds to score a touchdown at some point in this one, despite, in six career meetings with the Steelers, only scoring one rushing touchdown and one receiving touchdown. We know Joe Burrow can light it up. We know his new favorite target is Ja’Marr Chase, but for an inconsistent Steelers defense, it feels like this week could be the week for Mr. Mixon.

Bet No. 2

  • Cincinnati Bengals Over Total, 23.5 points (-105)

The Bengals over/under is set at 20.5. Go with the over. They scored 27 in the opener, and they put up 17 versus a Chicago Bears defense which should be ranked a little higher than the Steelers defense regardless of what numbers may or may not say.

Keep in mind the fact that this Steelers defense is still reeling after giving up 26 points at home to the Las Vegas Raiders.
