When it comes to Steelers vs. Bengals, nothing is off limits. This matchup has seen players leave on stretchers, players shoving officials and almost everything in between. When you have such disdain for an opponent, it can sometimes take teams out of their game, making picking the winner of this game even more challenging.

Nonetheless, it’s time to check in on the NFL experts to see who they think will win the AFC North grudge match at Heinz Field between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.

The experts at ESPN, who have been anything but consistent this season, really like the Steelers in the game, but it isn’t unanimous. One of the ten experts who submit weekly selections thinks the Bengals will go into Heinz Field and beat the Steelers in their house.

A similar story is true at CBS Sports. Only one lone expert thinks the Bengals stand a chance in Week 7, and the same narrative is true for the haters at SB Nation. Only one of the eight experts likes Cincinnati in this AFC North matchup.

These experts like the Black-and-gold to hold serve at home and move their record to 5-2 on the season, but these are just a few websites that submit weekly picks. What about all those other websites submitting weekly expert picks?

This is where NFL Pick Watch comes into play. NFL Pick Watch is a website which takes all expert picks across the internet and puts them into one easy-to-read graph. For Week 7, 91-percent of experts like the Steelers to win at home.

Las Vegas likes the Steelers, the NFL experts like the Steelers, but if anyone has learned anything about this Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati rivalry, it’s that nothing is certain. Only time will tell who leaves Heinz Field victorious on Sunday, but according to the experts, it will be the Steelers.
