laveon-bellAbout Pittsburgh: The Steelers are an offensive powerhouse (24+ points eight straight games) with the trio of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (95.4 passer rating) running back Le’Veon Bell (1,884 total yards) and wideout Antonio Brown (4.35 40-speed). The powerful offensive line has paved the way for the 215 Lb. Bell to have an MVP caliber season and ranks among the best in the NFL. Roethlisberger is a proven winner (11-6 postseason record 67% career winning percentage) that has the best surrounding cast of his 13-year career.  Roethlisberger will be hobbled with a foot injury that will limit his mobility. The hard-hitting defense (11th defensive efficiency) is loaded with physical players at all three levels. The defense ranks 13th against the rush in yards per carry, 6th in sacks and 14th in passer rating. Special teams have been solid if unspectacular. Head coach Mike Tomlin is among the winningest coaches in the NFL 64.4% winning percentage. Steelers vs Chiefs Odds have K.C -2.5 on the spread with 52% of Steelers vs Chiefs picks on Steelers +2.5 at BOVADA.LV

About Kansas City: Quietly QB Alex Smith (91.2 passer rating) has developed into one of the winningest signal-callers in the NFL with a 66% winning percentage in a Chiefs uniform. K.C. has a formidable 1-2 punch on the ground with burner Spencer Ware (4.36 40-speed) and duel threat Charcandrick West. The 229 Lb. starter Ware is battling a rib injury but will still play. The passing game features sure handed tight end Travis Kelce (2-time Pro Bowler) but added a new dimension with vertical threat Tyreek Hill (4.24 40-speed). The offensive line has kept Smith well protected and has done a solid job opening holes on the ground. Kansas City defense ranked 14th in defensive efficiency despite having a pass-rush that ranked a dismal 28th in sacks. An excellent set of defensive backs allowed the Chiefs to rank 4th in opponent passer rating despite the weak pass rush. In recent weeks the pass-rush has shown signs of life with outside linebacker Justin Houston creating pressure. Special teams have been among the NFL’s best despite four missed extra point attempts. Head coach Andy Reid is among the best sideline bosses in the league with 173 career wins and a 60% winning percentage. Steelers vs Chiefs Odds Over/Under at 45.5 points at BOVADA.LV
