Pittsburgh Has Been Dropping the Steel Curtain After Losses

Le’Veon Bell has served his suspension and will look to put the league on notice when he makes his first start of the season this weekend as his Steelers take on the Chiefs at home in the Sunday nighter.

SHARK BITES
  • The Steelers are 12-2 SU and 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games after a loss.
  • The Chiefs are 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games with a closing total of 47.5 or more.
  • The Chiefs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against the Steelers.

The Steelers got thumped by the Eagles 34-3 last week in a game Pittsburgh closed as 4-point favorites – a definite bump in the road for a team expected to compete for AFC supremacy this year. Pittsburgh rushed the ball just 10 times in that game against a stout run defense but expect that number to be cranked up significantly against a Chiefs team that has allowed 123 yards on the ground per game.

Total bettors may want to take a look at the UNDER in this one. The total has gone UNDER in five of the Chiefs’ last six games and six of the Steelers’ last seven games. Make sure to be aware of the total before you bet either side of this game as the Chiefs are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games with a closing total of 47.5 or less but are 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games when the total has closed at 47.5 or more.

These teams met back in October of last year when the Chiefs downed the Steelers 23-13 in a contest that went under a total of 41.5. That KC win would be the first of 11 in a row for Andy Reid and the Chiefs.
