Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction: Do We Dare Side With the Steelers?

In this matchup, we have the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Kansas City Chiefs. In their last matchup, the Chiefs blew the Steelers out 36-10. In today’s game, we have it going a lot differently.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Pick

Pittsburgh Steelers +12.5: +100 (Bet $100 to Win $100)

Today’s play is the Steelers! Yes, you read that right, the Steelers.

We are taking the Steelers +12.5 for a number of reasons. The public and majority of people are on the Chiefs at 76%. The Steelers lead the NFL in sacks this season and we expect T.J. Watt to have the best game yet. The last time these two teams faced each other, Watt was not 100% healthy, but he is now.  

The Steelers are top five in red zone efficiency, forcing turnovers on third downs, and they're one of the top teams in not allowing third-down conversions. I understand most of you will think we are crazy for this, but you cannot rule out the Steelers defense and Big Ben's playoff experience -- after all, this is his last ride before he retires.

I’m aware many of you guys are reading this and thinking, "What about the Chiefs?"

Tyreek Hill has not been himself since his return from COVID and from his heel injury. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is out of this game due to inury, and Darrel Williams is battling a toe injury, which makes him questionable as of now. It will lay in the hands of Mahomes and the Chiefs defense, which has been good of late but shaky all season.

Get them terrible towels ready and let’s go Steelers!
