Bengals vs Steelers: How to watch Bengals vs. Steelers football game. Watch Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh: TV channel, live stream info, start time

Pittsburgh has been homebodies their last two matches, but they are heading out on Sunday. They take on Cincinnati at 1:00 p.m. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

Pittsburgh’s and Atlanta’s match last Sunday was close at halftime, but Pittsburgh turned on the heat in the second half with ten points. Pittsburgh put the hurt on Atlanta with a sharp 41-17 victory. James Conner and Ben Roethlisberger were among the main playmakers for Pittsburgh as the former rushed for 110 yards and 2 touchdowns and the latter passed for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns. Roethlisberger has been a consistent playmaker for Pittsburgh as this was the 5th good game in a row from him.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati was able to grind out a solid win over Miami, winning 27-17. The success made it back-to-back wins for Cincinnati.

Their wins bumped Cincinnati to 4-1 and Pittsburgh to 2-2-1. Cincinnati’s offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Pittsburgh defensive front that amassed six sacks against Atlanta, so we’ll see if they are up to the task.

Buccaneers vs Falcons

Buccaneers vs Falcons: The Bucs are recharged coming off the bye week and so are we with this week’s bold predictions.

Buccaneers vs Falcons Live

Both teams enter this game with the season hanging in the balance. Tampa Bay had a plethora of issues to fix over the extra week. Did they figure out how to correct said issues or are they problems that linger throughout the season?

There won’t be an official answer until Sunday, but until then, ease your mind with these predictions for the divisional showdown in Week 6.

Jones averages around 1,293 yards a season, but only about six touchdowns coming into 2018. He has yet to score this year.

As great as Jones is as a player, he is oddly allergic to the end zone.

That will change this weekend.

Jones is no stranger to success when it comes to playing Tampa Bay. No matter what, he always finds a way against the Bucs.

Tampa Bay’s defense is trash and I haven’t seen enough from Mike Smith over the past two seasons to think anything will improve on Sunday.

Jones makes his hay – and many fantasy owners happy – on Sunday.

The Falcons have allowed at least 113 yards on the ground in four of five games on the season. They lost three of those, with the one victory coming against the Carolina Panthers.

The Bucs, on the other hand, have rushed for 100 yards as a team just once in four games. That came in the Week 1 victory against the New Orleans Saints.

Since Week 1, they have averaged a terrible 55 yards per game on the ground and are officially the worst rushing team before contact heading into Week 6.

Something has to give this weekend between the two teams.

Atlanta could be without Pro Bowl DT Grady Jarret for the second straight week, which would be a major victory for the Bucs’ offensive line. Jarrett is one of the best interior defensive linemen in the NFL, even though the Falcons were giving up an average 119 rushing yards per game before his injury.

Tampa Bay should have a temporary solution for the ground game after the extra week and I expect it to come to full fruition against the Falcons.

The Falcons average right around five plays of 20 yards or more per game and give up an average of four. The Bucs average around five as well and give up about five.

Expect things to stay on track this weekend.

Since returning from injury, Grimes has been picked on by opposing teams in the only two games he has played this season. Is it rust? Age? Match ups? The Buccaneers need Grimes to be at his best in order for this defense to improve.

Ryan Smith played the best game of his career in week two and since then has seen very limited action outside of the second half of week four, which again, he played good football. Grimes will struggle again this week and Tampa Bay will turn to Smith for help.

It might not be the boldest prediction because the Atlanta Falcons simply don’t have a good defense, but it’s something I think will happen come Sunday. Look, Winston is a lot better then the national media paints him out to be and throughout his career he has actually played some of his best ball against the Falcons.

Outside of O.J. Howard, who isn’t likely to play this week, the rest of the offense is healthy and ready to go against a banged up Falcons defense. This game provides an opportunity for Tampa Bay to get back on track with their starting quarterback of the future.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears

We saw it throughout the preseason, Winston is ready to go this year and is on a mission to prove people wrong. Winston goes for over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Steelers vs Bengals

Steelers vs Bengals: Game status for Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Steelers released their official injury report for this week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Fortunately, it seems Pittsburgh is going to go into the game pretty healthy, all things considered.

I’d love to make a big deal about the absence of safety Morgan Burnett but he’s been out for so long the defense has definitely moved on from him. There’s no way to account for injuries but in hindsight but the signing many thought would have the biggest impact on the team has been a complete non-factor.

In addition, wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will miss his second straight game. His impact on offense is marginal but he is a star on special teams. Last week’s surprise star, linebacker L.J. Fort is doubtful with an ankle injury. He played much of last week’s game with the injury and was tremendous filling in for Vince Williams.

Wisconsin vs Michigan

Wisconsin vs Michigan: Wisconsin recovered from a Week 3 home defeat to an underwhelming BYU team with a 2-0 run through the start of its Big Ten slate. On Saturday, the Badgers will face their toughest test of 2018 to date — a Michigan team in desperate need of a big victory.

Wisconsin vs Michigan Live

The Wolverines are only 4-8 against ranked opponents under head coach Jim Harbaugh, but toppling No. 15 Wisconsin in Ann Arbor would be a statement win for a program seeking its first Big Ten title since 2004. Michigan fell short in its first attempt to dispatch a ranked opponent this fall when it fell short against Notre Dame on the road in September. Fortunately for Harbaugh, history will be on his side against UW.

Saturday’s game is a matchup the Wolverines have typically dominated. Michigan is 50-15-1 against Wisconsin all time and has won six of its last seven home games against the Badgers. But Heisman Trophy hopeful Jonathan Taylor has never been to Ann Arbor, and the dynamic tailback could be just what UW needs to fight off history in Week 7.

The Wolverines, somehow, are the No. 5 team in the latest round of the S&P+ rankings. The Badgers clock in at No. 13. The preseason prediction saw this as a three-point loss, but that also ascribes a certain level of stability Harbaugh hasn’t yet proven in Ann Arbor. Taylor gets loose behind some motivated blocking, and Wisconsin wins this one when Rafael Gaglianone gets some sweet redemption with a game-winning field goal late in the fourth quarter.

Odds: Michigan is favored by eight points.

Wisconsin vs. Michigan news:

The key to a Michigan win? Jim Harbaugh’s history suggests it’s a steady diet of successful runs.

In the two big games Michigan has won, they’ve thrown the ball less than 45% of the time and averaged three or more yards per carry. The sample size of wins is small, but that’s kind of the point here. The Florida game is really the only time Harbaugh’s Stanford vision has come to pass for the Wolverines, and the Gators were a reeling team that barely showed up.

I want to first focus on the YPC in the losses. Even though sacks skew the running numbers, it is staggering that Michigan has failed to crack three yards per rush in any of those games. They’re 2-0 when they do and 0-9 when they don’t. What this tells me is that the running game, for whatever reason, has constantly failed to show up when the lights get the brightest.

Scott Nelson has emerged as an important piece of the Badger secondary, but he’ll miss the first half of the Michigan game due to a targeting penalty.

The Wolverines’ defense is its headliner, but a talent-heavy offense is beginning to emerge as well.

Wisconsin beat the crap out of Nebraska — just not as soundly as Michigan did.

BYU proved a single destructive force can throw the Badgers off their game plan. In September, it was linebacker Sione Takitaki who made the plays that led a stunning upset at Camp Randall Stadium. On Saturday it could be former No. 1 overall recruit Gary, a gap-stuffing defensive lineman capable of breaking into the backfield with quickness and snuffing out big plays before they can happen. But Gary missed last week’s win over Maryland with a shoulder injury, and while he’s expected to play Saturday, it’s fair to wonder whether a hampered Gary can hold his own against a typically-stacked Badger offensive line.

Missouri vs Alabama

 Missouri vs Alabama: Halfway through the season and there’s no doubt that Alabama has been head and shoulders better than every other team in college football. The efficiency of the offense combined with the disruptiveness of the defense has made Nick Saban’s team look truly unstoppable. The next team to try what appears to be impossible is Missouri. And the game is in Tuscaloosa.

At some point, Alabama’s offense will hiccup. Nothing can go on forever. The only question now is which team — which defense — finds a weakness and takes advantage of it? Can it be Mizzou? The Tigers are 12th in the SEC in points allowed per game. So, no, that seems unlikely.

Alabama: Can Alabama’s offense keep up the absurd numbers? Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is averaging 14.8 yards per passing attempt. To put that ridiculous number into more context, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield averaged 11.5 yards per attempt during last year’s Heisman Trophy winning season — and that was a NCAA FBS record. It’s also ahead of Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray, who is averaging 13.8 yards per attempt this season. Tagovailoa has 18 touchdowns vs. just 25 incompletions and zero interceptions on just 16.8 attempts per game. This is truly historic efficiency we’re talking about here.

Missouri: Conversely, can the Tigers do anything to stop Alabama’s offense? Yes, Missouri can play shootout, but not nearly well enough to keep up with Bama at this rate. What’s so dangerous about the Tide is how accurate Tagovailoa is with his ball placement. Even if Mizzou can get pressure on him or defend well, there’s been almost no defense for how well he leads his receivers.

Alabama has been on the right end of so many blowouts it’s become almost impossible to find a trend against the spread. However, The Crimson Tide haven’t covered in their last two conference games. Missouri has the offense to at least put up points, even if some are in garbage time. Pick: Missouri

Michigan State vs Penn State

Coming off a bye week following their crushing loss to Ohio State, the Penn State Nittany Lions return to action Saturday when they host the Michigan State Spartansat 3:30 p.m. ET. In the latest Penn State vs. Michigan State odds, the Nittany Lions are 13.5-point favorites, while the over-under for total points scored is 53, down from an open of 56.5. Both teams enter the Saturday Big Ten game with a 1-1 conference record and the bitter taste of defeat still in their mouths. Before you enter your Penn State vs. Michigan State picks, you’ll want to check out what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh has to say.

The renowned co-founder of AccuScore, Oh simulates each game 10,000 times using the SportsLine projection model. Oh is crushing college football in 2018, and he has been extremely impressive when it comes to handicapping Penn State, as he boasts a 10-1 mark against the spread over the past two seasons on games involving the Nittany Lions. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now, he has crunched the numbers and generated a strong point-spread selection for Penn State vs. Michigan State. It’s only available over at SportsLine.

Oh knows that Penn State can keep its foot in the door of the College Football Playoff with a dominant performance. Even in their loss to Ohio State at home, the Nittany Lions looked like serious title contenders.

Quarterback Trace McSorley did everything he could to lead Penn State to glory, accumulating a staggering 461 yards of total offense against the Buckeyes. If he puts together a similar performance against the Spartans, Michigan State will have trouble keeping pace with Penn State’s explosive offense.

But just because Penn State features a high-powered attack doesn’t mean it will cover a 13.5-point spread against a Michigan State team that has defeated the Nittany Lions in four of the past five meetings.

Michigan State has been battle-tested in tight football games this season, with no margin of victory exceeding 14 points. If things stay tight, the Spartans might be able to force Penn State to relive some of the unfortunate mistakes that cost them against Ohio State.

To do that, Michigan State will need Brian Lewerke to avoid turnovers and manage the game on the road. He has already proven he can put up strong numbers against Penn State, throwing for 400 yards and two touchdowns in the Spartans’ home victory last season.

Oh has analyzed this matchup from every possible angle and while we can tell you he’s leaning over, he has discovered a crucial x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing his pick over at SportsLine.

Florida and Vanderbilt have met every season since 1992, a total of 26 consecutive seasons. Excluding a 2013 win for Vanderbilt, Florida has dominated these contests, including a 22-game winning streak from 1989 to 2012. Florida aims to continue this generational dominance through their excellent offensive play. According to Athlon Sports, the Gators have scored on 91.7 percent of their trips inside the opponent’s 20-yard-line, making them a top-25 team in terms of red-zone efficiency.

Vanderbilt’s defense has allowed scores on 79.2 percent of its opponent’s red-zone trips, which puts them slightly beneath the SEC average. Despite this, Florida head coach Dan Mullen will not be taking anything for granted. “I’m a believer in that if you don’t prepare the right way you can’t expect to win the game,” he told 24/7 Sports. “So I don’t know that trap game comes up as much as guys trying to catch their breath after continually proving (themselves). It becomes a mental thing. Toughness, you know?”

Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks echoed his coach’s stance. “I mean it’s another SEC road game. It’s not easy, it’s not easy to win road games, let alone just an SEC game in general,” he explained. “So can’t take them lightly. Just got to keep on preparing, keep on having really good practices. We’ve got to have a great practice today and just keep on going and going. And like Coach Mullen said, you’ve got to prepare for every team and if you don’t prepare you have the potential of losing a game.”

Vanderbilt’s defense has struggled against Florida historically, as has quarterback Kyle Shurmur. College Football News reports that Shurmur only hit 36% of his passes for 82 yards in the 2016 contest that ended 13-6, and connected on 45% of his throws in last year’s 38-24 loss. Shurmur also has to contend with Florida’s quality defense. According to the Tennessean, the Gators are ranked 10th nationally in pass defense with 145.3 yards per game and interceptions with 6.

Vanderbilt’s starting offensive lineman Bruno Reagan is confident that the team is on the cusp of a season breakthrough. “We’re so close,” he told ESPN. “We’re unbelievably close. It’s just about playing better. We’re right there. We saw that in the UGA game. We were driving up and down the field against a really good team.” Vanderbilt head coach Dave Mason is similarly hopeful. “(The) best players are going to play,” he said. “Other guys are going to get their touches intermittently. What we have to do is make sure we get the ball to our best players.”

Baylor vs Texas

Baylor vs Texas: No. 9 Texas enters Week 7 of the college football season with renewed national championship aspirations, but the Longhorns will need to prove they can play at a high level on a weekly basis in the Big 12 to get there. They’ll have a chance to do just that Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET when Baylor, off to a strong 4-2 start, comes to Austin.

After opening as 16-point favorites, the Longhorns are now -14 in the latest Texas vs. Baylor odds. The over-under, meanwhile, has fallen from 61 to 60.5. Before you make any Texas vs. Baylor picks, you’ll want to see what SportsLine college football handicapper Josh Nagel has to say.

A Nevada-based expert with 20 years of experience in the sports wagering industry, Nagel specializes in handicapping college athletics. He’s having another solid season in college football, entering Week 7 on an 18-13 run on his college football picks. Moreover, he has had a keen eye for the tendencies of these two programs, hitting a whopping eight straight picks in games involving Texas or Baylor.

Look no further than last week’s Red River Showdown to see Nagel’s expertise. He confidently locked in a pick for Texas (+8), saying there was value on the Longhorns as an underdog in that rivalry matchup. The result: Texas pulled out a 48-45 upset, and anybody who followed Nagel’s advice got a huge cash.

Now, Nagel has scrutinized Texas vs. Baylor from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he’s sharing only at SportsLine.

He has taken Texas’ undeniable momentum into account. After a shocking loss to Maryland in the season-opener, Tom Herman has shown huge strides in Year 2, leading the Longhorns to wins over USC, TCU and Oklahoma, all ranked teams at the time.

Dual-threat quarterback Sam Ehlinger has been the catalyst for Texas. He’s completing 65.3 percent of his passes for 1,499 yards, 11 touchdowns and two interceptions this season and is also the team’s third-leading rusher. His emergence under center has given Texas the stability needed to contend in the Big 12.

But there’s no guarantee the Longhorns will continue to roll with an improved Baylor team coming to town.

After a disastrous 1-11 record in 2017, the Bears have quietly begun to turn it around under second-year coach Matt Rhule. Though lacking a signature victory to this point, Baylor is off to a 4-2 start with a 2-1 mark in Big 12 play.

Quarterback Charlie Brewer has matched Ehlinger’s productivity in many categories and has an impressive group of receivers to throw to, including converted running back and Tennessee transfer Jalen Hurd (42-550-3).

We can tell you Nagel is leaning toward the under, but he has also unearthed the crucial x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing it at SportsLine.

Pittsburgh vs Notre Dame

Pittsburgh vs Notre Dame: Pursuing their quest for a potential College Football Playoff bid, Notre Dame hosts Pittsburgh on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET. Notre Dame needs to keep winning in order to make the postseason, but the Panthers have long been a persistent nemesis.

Pittsburgh vs Notre Dame Live

With a win, the Irish will move to 7-0 before they head to a bye week, while Pitt is looking to build on perhaps its best performance of the season in a 44-37 overtime victory against Syracuse last week.

The Irish are 21-point favorites and the Over-Under for total points scored is 54 in the latest Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh odds. Before you make any Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh picks, listen to what SportsLine senior analyst Josh Nagel has to say.

A Nevada-based expert with 20 years of experience in the sports wagering industry, Nagel specializes in handicapping college athletics. He’s having another solid season in college football, hitting on 60 percent of his spread picks for SportsLine members. Moreover, he has had a keen eye for the tendencies of these two programs. Over the past two years, Nagel boasts an amazing record of 7-1 in against the spread picks involving either Notre Dame or Pittsburgh.

In Week 1, for example, Nagel advised SportsLine members to back Notre Dame after Michigan climbed to a three-point road favorite. The Irish dominated early and held off a rally to secure a 24-17 win, and Nagel’s followers picked up another winner.

Now, Nagel has scrutinized Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he’s sharing only at SportsLine.

Nagel knows the Irish can’t afford to have a letdown against their ACC opponent if they hope to keep their undefeated season alive and merit consideration for the four-team College Football Playoff. They just cleared a major hurdle by blowing out Stanford and Virginia Tech in consecutive weeks in what has to be considered one of the most impressive accomplishments of the 2018 college football season thus far.

Notre Dame has averaged 46.3 points over its last three contests with Ian Bookleading the offense. The junior has completed 73.3 percent of his attempts for 887 yards and nine touchdowns against one interception.

But just because Notre Dame’s offense is firing on all cylinders with Book under center doesn’t mean it can cover a three-touchdown spread against a Pitt program that is developing a reputation as a giant-killer of sorts.

Last year, the Panthers spoiled Miami’s undefeated season with a 24-14 home upset as a two-touchdown underdog. Two seasons ago, they spoiled Clemson’s bid for an undefeated campaign with a 43-42 road victory as a three-touchdown ‘dog.

We can tell you Nagel is leaning Over, but he has also unearthed a crucial x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing it at SportsLine.
