Two potential playoff teams meet for Sunday Night Football, with one moving to 3-1 with a win and the other dropping to even with a loss. Kansas City and Pittsburgh are coming off completely different outcomes in Week 3, but both teams welcome their respective star running backs back into the lineups Sunday night.
Here’s a complete look at all the betting info you need to know, as well as a prediction for the outcome:
Chiefs vs. Steelers Week 4 Betting Info

Spread: Steelers (-3.5)
Season Results: Steelers: 2-1 overall, 2-1 ATS; Chiefs: 2-1 overall, 1-2 ATS
Even after losing by 30 points to Carson Wentz and the Eagles last week, the fortress that is Heinz Field helps the Steelers become a favorite for Sunday night. Another boost is the return of Le’Veon Bell, who joins a Steelers rushing attack that was already thriving under veteran DeAngelo Williams.
Kansas City also get back their star back, but it’s a different situation for Jamaal Charles. Andy Reid has indicated that Charles will be eased back into the lineup, and the Chiefs are expected to stick with Spencer Ware for most of the evening. That’s fine, Ware is currently fourth in the NFL in yards from scrimmage, but those looking for a big boost in Charles’ return will likely have to keep waiting.
The best individual matchup of the night will be outside, where Antonio Brown takes on reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Marcus Peters. Peters will likely shadow Brown all night, and he already has four interceptions in three weeks this season.
Expect a good performance from Bell, and the Steelers offense to outpace the Chiefs offense. Peters could be the difference, as the Chiefs will need big plays on defense if they want the road win.
Prediction: Steelers 27, Chiefs 21 (Steelers straight-up, Steelers ATS, Over)
