Free NFL Divisional Round Total Steelers VS Chiefs

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Kansas City Chiefs  Sunday 1pm 

Kansas City -2  O/U 45

Steelers: 12-5 SU  10-6 ATS. The Total is 6-11 this season.

Chiefs: 12-4 SU  9-7 ATS. The Total is 6-10 this season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Steelers took care of the Dolphins with ease 30-12 on Sunday in the Wild Card round as the Chiefs watched on TV. The only issue the Steelers had was QB Ben Roethlisberger was hurt with 4 minutes to go in the game. He left the stadium in a walking boot but the Steelers contend he’s fine and good to go Sunday. These 2 teams played in week 4 with the Steelers thrashing the Chiefs 43-14 at Heinz Field. Roethlisberger had a field day throwing for 5 scores (2 to Antonio Brown) and Le’Veon Bell had 178 total yards in first game of the season after a 3 game suspension. 

For this RideTheHotHand free pick we are going after the total of 45.5. The first game between these 2 teams really has no bearing on our pick here. First of all this will be a divisional round playoff game in Kansas City in January not in Pittsburgh in late September. Kansas City hasn’t hosted this game since 2003 so expect the crowd to be absolutely electric. If anything that beatdown in Pittsburgh will work in Kansas City’s favor as their defense will definitely be ready this time against the Roethlisberger, Bell, Brown trio and will be foaming at the mouth to make this game different. At Arrowhead the Chiefs only allowed an average of 16 points a game and only 2 teams scored over 20 points on them at home, San Diego scored 27 in week 1 and the Saints scored 21 in week 7. After the Saints game they held 5 straight opponents to Under 20 points at home. Pittsburgh has been an UNDER team all season even though the public perception on them is to take the OVER. The UNDER has hit in 11 out of the 17 games Pittsburgh has played this season and only 2 of their 8 road games this season has gone OVER the number. We expect this game is going to be a low scoring and tight all the way. Run the ball, Short throws, tough defense and not give up big plays to Brown and Bell will be the Chiefs plan. Run the Ball, quick throws (to protect Roethlisberger) tough defense and no big plays to Tyreke Hill will be Pittsburgh’s. We expect a bunch of field goals so we are taking the UNDER. The Pick: UNDER 45.5
