Steelers and Chiefs set up a highly anticipated showdown at Arrowhead, kicking off Sunday’s round of divisional matchups. Here’s how to line up SU, ATS, and Total NFL picks.

   Pittsburgh Steelers vs Kansas City Chiefs

 

Point Spread Value

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 10-7-0 ATS with a 5.3 winning margin and +0.9 differential versus the spread going into Sunday’s clash with the Chiefs. Flush off a commanding 30-12 win over the Dolphins in the wildcard round, all while covering with aplomb the closing -11.0 spread on the NFL odds board, the Steelers should be buoyed for this clash. Naturally, the Chiefs present a much tougher obstacle than the Dolphins did. As such, the Steelers are the nominal road underdogs according to bookmakers.

Nevertheless, it’s almost impossible to bet against Big Ben and the Steelers after last week’s performance. Good as the Chiefs are, the Steelers are just that little bit better. It should be a close one but the Steelers strike the most convincing pose for divisional NFL picks.

The Survivor

In theory, the Chiefs should win given they are the hosts. But many NFL bettors would agree the Steelers could win this highly anticipated showdown. It’s an NFL pick between two very good teams, deserving of their place in the playoffs. To some extent, it’s a right tossup. Still, the Steelers are riding an incredible eight-game winning streak into Sunday’s clash and that’s just momentum that can’t be ignored. If there is a road team that deserves to be tickled on your playoff NFL picks, it’s the Steelers.

 Game Total

The total for the clash between the Steelers and Chiefs is one of the lowest on the NFL odds board for the weekend. That’s largely down to the defensive prowess of both camps. The Steelers boast a 6-11-0 OVER record while the Chiefs boast a 6-10-0 OVER record. Clearly, the UNDER has cashed more often than not where these two sides are concerned. However, the energy, buzz, and excitement surrounding this clash suggest this game just might crack the total.
