The Kansas City Chiefs will take the field as 10 point favorites with the total sitting at 44.5 on the game. There seems to be something different about the Chiefs this season. Yes, they’re winning and one of the better teams in the AFC, but they haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard like they did last season. The Broncos have a defensive-minded coach and Drew Lock had the offense firing on all cylinders last week. Say what you want, but not many teams have beaten the Texans at home by at least 14 points.
All that being said, Mahomes and the Chiefs offense feeds off of momentum. A big win at home here against a divisional opponent could spark something huge the rest of the AFC has to deal with. I think Kansas City wins and wins big on Sunday. My money is on the Chiefs minus 10.
Denver is 1-7 ATS in their previous eight games vs. Kansas City.
Kansas City is 4-1 ATS in their previous five games.
