NFL Picks: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL Odds Week 11: After a rather slow start, the defending Super Bowl champion (6-3) Pittsburgh Steelers [-10½] head to Arrowhead Stadium looking for some consistency the second half of the season, as they take on the sports betting odds underdog (2-7) Kansas City Chiefs [+10½] in this NFL Odds Week 11. This AFC matchup has a scheduled opening kickoff slated for 1:05 PM ET (10 AM PT) and it will be broadcasted live on CBS.
The visiting Steelers enter this gamer looking to recharge their offense, after a subpar effort last week against Cincinnati. Going into last week’s game against the Bengals, ranked 5th best in NFL, Ben Roethlisberger (316 passing yards per game) and the Steelers offense laid a goose egg in the touchdown column.
I don’t know if it was great defense or crappy offense, but Pittsburgh was limited to a season-low 226 total yards and held to under 27 points for the first time since September 27. "There was just something missing all day, I don't know what it was," stated Roethlisberger. "We weren't good in the red zone, we weren't good in the run, we weren't good in the pass. … It hurts. But how can we rebound now?"
Adding insult to injury, the best safety in the league, Troy Polamalu left the Bengals game with a knee injury and has been ruled out for today’s game. According to NFL Predictions specialists and NFL Odds makers at Bodog.com, the OVER/UNDER for this Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Week 11 meeting has been set at a combined total of 40 points scored.
For the hosting Chiefs, with last week’s upset of AFC West rival Raiders, KC hopes to string together consecutive victories for the first time in over 2 years (Oct. 2007). The Chiefs went into the Black Hole and caused JaMarcus Russell the starting job with a 16-10 victory.
With the release of Larry Johnson, the Chiefs got a boost on the ground, as they registered their first rushing touchdown of the season on a 44-yard TD-run by Jamal Charles. "We talked about that before the game, that one of the running backs had to go and make something happen," said Charles. "It turned out to be me, and I'm blessed to be in that position."
On a bit of a sour note, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been suspended for 4 games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy. "It's no different than injuries," Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. "When somebody goes down, somebody has to step up and that's all part of the process of us becoming a good team."
