When you’re looking at a matchup between the #3 and the #6 seed in a tournament — a tournament in which only six teams qualify — you might think that you’re looking at a substantial gap in quality. However, when the #3 and #6 seeds in the AFC playoffs this season — Cincinnati and Pittsburgh — meet this Saturday in Cincinnati, the gap will be anything but sizable, at least according to the odds, which currently have the Bengals favored by one point. This NFL betting game kicks off on Saturday night at 8:15pm Eastern time on CBS.was Carson Palmer — the same one who has led Arizona to a terrific season this year. In that game, the Steelers knocked Palmer out of the game on the second play with a torn ACL. This is a memory that head coach Marvin Lewis describes as needing an “exorcism” with a Bengal win this Saturday.
