Top Bet Games to Bet On
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles (8:25 PM ET)
Andy Reid returns to the city where he thrived — and eventually nosedived — when he guides the Kansas City Chiefs into a Thursday night matchup with the host Philadelphia Eagles. Reid enjoyed a spectacular run during his 14-year tenure with the Eagles, bringing the team to five conference championship games and one Super Bowl appearance. Philadelphia burned out in Reid’s final two seasons, leading to his dismissal and the offseason hiring of Oregon coach Chip Kelly.
Reid has the Chiefs off to a surprising 2-0 start to match their win total from last season. Kelly’s fast-break offense is the talk of the league after Philadelphia totaled 63 points, splitting its first two games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Kansas City’s last 6 games. However, the Eagles have seen the total go OVER in their last 5 games.
Clemson Tigers vs. NC State Wolfpack (7:30 PM ET)
North Carolina State looks to slow down Heisman Trophy candidate Tajh Boyd on Thursday when the Wolfpack host fourth-ranked Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams. Boyd accounted for an ACC-record eight touchdowns in last season’s 62-48 victory over the Wolfpack. The senior quarterback also threw for three scores and ran for two more in Clemson’s season-opening 38-35 win over Georgia. The Tigers have won eight of the last nine meetings, but were upset during their last visit to Raleigh in 2011.
The Tigers have been strong as visitors as they are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games. However, the Wolfpack are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings with Clemson.
