Week 1 NFL picks for Bengals vs. Steelers

Before you tune in to Sunday’s Steelers vs. Bengals game, you need to check out SportsLine’s advanced computer model NFL picks. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has won over $7,500 for $100 players with top-tier NFL picks since its inception. The model kicks off the 2022 NFL season with an incredible 138-97 run of top-flight NFL picks, stretching back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed out on a top-flight pick since week 15 of last season.

The model has also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch for four of the last six years in direct NFL picks, beating more than 94% of CBS Sports football pick ’em players four times in that span. Whoever followed it is way up.

For Steelers vs. Bengals, the model supports the over (44.5) to score with ease. The Bengals averaged 259.0 passing yards per game, one of the strongest in the NFL last season. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase shredded defenses in 2021, and Cincinnati’s dynamic duo will be one of the most feared tandems in the NFL this season.

Meanwhile, the Steelers have one of the most versatile running backs in the NFL. Najee Harris led the league with 381 touches last season, the most by a rookie since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001. Harris finished the 2021 season with 1,667 scrimmage yards, the most by a Steelers rookie in franchise history.

Additionally, four of Cincinnati’s last five games against AFC North opponents have been over aggregate on aggregate. SportsLine’s model assumes that these two teams will score 48 points combined, contributing to the over hitting well over 50% of the simulations.
