Monday Night Football Odds – Chiefs vs Steelers Betting Preview
2012-11-16

The Steelers beat the Giants in New York despite the adversity both teams suffered in the previous days of the match.

“We’re finishing the game now,” linebacker LaMarr Woodley. “I mean, that’s the biggest thing … we went to Oakland, we didn’t finish and when we went to Tennessee, we didn’t finish, but (Sunday) we finished”.

Pittsburgh believes in their philosophy of ‘next man up’, especially in the running back position.

“Whoever’s being productive when healthy is going to get the totes,” Mike Tomlin said. “I really think it’s that simple. I’m not going to make it any more complex than it has to be. At times this season we’ve had a running-back-by-committee approach because none of them had been overly effective at that time.

The Chiefs have 29 turnovers, 21 more than Pittsburgh and 10 more than anyone else in the league.

Kansas City tries to run the ball effectively, but when they try to throw it, their games to the drain. Quarterback Matt Cassel has the most pass attempts in the league (66), without a touchdown pass against five or more rushers this season.

The Chiefs are 4-9-1 ATS in its last 14 games when playing the Steelers. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 5 games when playing at home against Kansas City

Detroit seemed on their way to victory leading 20-13 late in the fourth quarter but New York scored a defense touchdown to tie the game, and kicked a game winning field goal on their second possession of overtime. The Lions final five chances with the ball ended with four punts and a defensive score. New York was limited to just 41 yards on the ground on 21 carries while the Lions scampered for 148 yards. The teams combined for five turnovers.

    It’s been a busy summer for teams in the East’s Southeast Division.  Miami lost LeBron James, which automatically made for a bad summer, but did recuperate pretty nicely.  Charlotte is slowly becoming a very good team.  Washington was busy in free agency but will still rely on guards John Wall and Bradley Beal.  Orlando remains on the rebuilding path.  And finally, the Atlanta Hawks made some small but solid moves this summer.  Let’s take a closer look at each team’s offseason:
