Our 500-star NFL Premium Picks have been winning at 75.5% rate and will continue into the 2016 Superbowl. The month of January promises to be one of the most exciting in recent years. Take for instance the AFC with Kansas City visiting the Houston Texans. Kansas City beat the Texans in the opening game of the season at the same venue, NRG Stadium in Houston Texas. Kansas City won the game 27-20, but it wasn’t as close as the score indicated. Game-2 is set to start at 8:30 pm est. The Pittsburgh Steelers make their second appearance of the season in Southwestern Ohio and the third meeting between the AFC North foes in 2015-16.
The 2015-16 Houston Texans won the AFC South, but it was a rocky road doing so to say the least. It looked like General Manager Rick Smith, and head coach Bill O’Brien were on their way out of “SPACE CITY” as the organization got off to another bad start. The offseason departure of longtime wideout Andre Johnson to rivals Indianapolis had the Colts as the favorites in the division.

How the world turns in the National Football League. Johnson and the Colts get left out of the postseason and Houston wins the division and is in the 2016 playoffs. The Kansas City Chiefs are the hottest team in all of Football. Kansas City is on a ten-game winning streak and hopes to make it eleven in a row Saturday. A victory Saturday will break a six-game playoff drought for the Chiefs. Kansas City has to be filling good going into the contest. The Chiefs were without lineman Eric Fisher the first meeting between the teams; the third year pro is having the best season of his young career. On the opposite side of Fisher will be J.J. Watt.

Quarterback Brina Hoyer will target DeAndre Hopkins in the passing game, and the Chiefs will have the rookie cornerback in man to man coverage. Peters is probably going to be the AFC defensive rookie of the year. The Texans will be without left tackle Duane Brown, injured in the regular season finale. Chiefs pass rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are licking their chops. Houston is a 3-point Home Underdog ATS.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team the Cincinnati Bengals did not want to see in the postseason. Making matter worse starting signal caller Andy Dalton is listed as questionable for Saturday’s second wildcard matchup.

Dalton suffered a broken thumb on his throwing hand in a 33-10 home loss to Pittsburgh on December 13th. Former Alabama Crimson Tide star A.J. McCarron expects to be under center. The two teams know each other better, and it will be “SLUGFEST” from start to finish.

Cincinnati is a two and a half point home underdog Against The Point Spread. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis doesn’t expect his team to miss a beat. Offensively tight end Tyler Eifert and wide receiver A.J. Green must make plays. The Bengals will be able to run the football on first downs.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are just where they want to be; a team no one wants to play. Pittsburgh has Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown on offense, the combination is enough to give any coordinator nightmares. Running Back DeAngelo Williams is questionable with a sore ankle suffered in Cleveland last Sunday.
