NFL Betting Preview for Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas

Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Preview: Steelers Just Find Ways To Win

The Steelers were able to pick up their seventh win of the season and continue to find ways to win. The defense led the way in the or last game as they picked up four sacks and four turnovers in the win at home.

Although T.J. Watt collected a fumble and 1.5 sacks, the front seven looked shaky as they gave up 201 yards rushing to Tennessee.

Offensively, the Steelers somehow managed to grab a win despite finishing with 183 total yards. Najee Harris has been the foundation of the offense but was completely stuffed, averaging 1.5 yards per carry.

Ben Roethlisberger found the end zone on a QB sneak, but at 39, his season has been lackluster. Be that as it may, the quarterback has picked up his play recently, tossing multiple touchdowns in four of his last six contests. 

Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview: Chiefs Have Rattled Off Seven Straight Victories

The Chiefs, on the other hand, look like a Super Bowl favorite with their play down the stretch. Kansas City has rattled off seven straight wins and found themselves safely in first with a win over the Chargers last week

Despite that success, Patrick Mahomes still doesn’t quite look like himself out there as his performances have been good but not great. The Chiefs have been dealing with some offensive line issues, but they have tremendous resilience and find ways to win.

For that reason, Mahomes was able to lead a second-half comeback as he tossed three touchdowns, including two to Travis Kelce, who caught the game-winner in overtime.

Defensively, the Chiefs started out as one of the worst defenses against the pass and have tightened things up immensely. However, they went back to their old ways as they conceded almost 500 yards of offense to the Chargers. Including allowing 192 yards on the ground.

Ultimately, the Chiefs unit has rebounded from a slow start allowing just 23.3 points per game this year. However, they’ll have a tough matchup against a strong Steelers rushing attack.

Early betting odds on MyBookie have the Chiefs as the slight -9.5 home favorite, with the point total set at 48.5.

Free Betting Pick

The Chiefs are absolutely rolling right now, and it’s hard to go against them in this one. The Steelers displayed a pitiful offense against Tennessee last week, and there seems like no chance they can compete with the Chiefs here.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, have won seven straight and are looking for that number one seed in the postseason. Additionally, the Chiefs have averaged 41 points in their last two contests. Look for another explosion here. Take the Chiefs.

Free Pick: Chiefs -9.5
