PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Paul Bessire, known better by the the nickname of his program, “The Prediction Machine,” checked in with The Fan Morning Show today to share his NFL picks, as he does every Thursday at 8:40 a.m.

Bessire, whose machine simulates every game 50,000 times, says it likes the Steelers to beat the Bengals on Sunday, but suggests picking the Bengals against the 4-point spread (as it only has the Steelers winning by about a point).

He also mentioned that the Machine had the Steelers making the playoffs about one out of every three times.

As usual, Bessire also had a plethora of analysis on a wide array of upcoming NFL games and he gave the machine’s recommendations for which games should be the best plays and which might be better to stay away from.
