**Odds as of 10/15**
Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Bengals are 1-3-1 this season pegging them as the worst team in the AFC North. Although the Bengals managed to beat Jacksonville in Week 4, they had no chance against the Ravens in Week 5 losing 27-3 to Lamar Jackson & Co. Facing the Colts on the road, it’s no surprise to see the NFL odds paint the Bengals as a massive underdog.
The Colts are 3-2 this season with their two losses coming against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cleveland Browns. The loss against the Browns was a bit surprising but that’s what happens when you’re unable to stop the league’s No. 1 run game.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) were decimated by the Ravens 27-3 last week, and rookie sensation Joe Burrow has been chased and bashed all over the field this season. The Indianapolis Colts’ (3-2) defense may bring enough heat to force Burrow out of the game with an injury (Devlin knocks on wood). Burrow has faced constant pressure and takes a beating every week. Now the Colts’ elite defense stares him in the eyes.
Indianapolis allows an average of 17.6 PPG, second only to Baltimore. The Colts D is solid against the run, and has forced nine interceptions over its last four games. This Week 6 matchup may be a nightmare for the Cincinnati offense, and Indy QB Philip Rivers is certainly due for a breakout game besides. The prognosis is not good for the Bengals, who will almost certainly be blown out by double-digits.

Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
QB Baker Mayfield finished the game against the Indianapolis Colts with some rib discomfort, but he already said that he’s going to be on the field for this AFC North matchup.
The Cleveland Browns scored 32 points against a good defense, and did it without RB Nick Chubb.
The Browns average 31.2 points per game (fourth best in the league) and the total has gone over in five of Cleveland’s last six games.
Few predicted that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be heading into Week 6 unbeaten, but they are.
Ben Roethlisberger has found new weapons in WR’s Chase Claypool and Ray-Ray McCloud.
The Steelers average 29.5 games and the total has gone under in nine of Pittsburgh’s last 12 games. You can expect some fireworks here, go over.
