Steelers vs. Chiefs Free Pick
Landry Jones will make his first start for the Steelers when Pittsburgh visits the Kansas City Chiefs at 1:00PM ET.
The Chiefs opened as a 2-point home favorite but the line was bet up to 3 according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 43 points after opening at that same number.
Pittsburgh is 4-2 on the year and a perfect 5-0-1 against the spread, while Kansas City is 1-5 straight up and 1-5 at the betting window. The Steelers are a perfect 3-0 against the spread on the road this season while the Chiefs have yet to cover a game at home (0-2).
If you're into the "due theory," then this is your game. Jones looked sharp while filling in for the injured Michael Vick (who was filling in for the injured Ben Roethlisberger) in last week's win over the Cardinals, but at what point do these injuries start to add up for the Steelers? They'll be starting their third string quarterback on the road in a tough environment against a team that hasn't covered a spread since Week 1. The Chiefs are 1-5 but they're well coached and don't look like a team that is ready to throw in the towel despite dwindling hopes.
