The Kansas City Chiefs have secured the top spot in the AFC West, but they still need some work to get done if they want to get a no. 1 seed in the conference. The Denver Broncos, meanwhile, are looking to pull off another stunner after shocking the Houston Texans in Week 14. The Chiefs are +750 to win Super Bowl 54.

Betting on the Denver Broncos (5-8)
Is Drew Lock the future of the Broncos? He sure looked like it at least in the Broncos’ surprising 38-24 road win over the Houston Texans last Sunday. Lock was locked and loaded in that game, going 22 for 27 for three touchdowns against just an interception while also absorbing just one sack. Rookie tight end Noah Fant helped Lock a lot, as he had 113 receiving yards and a touchdown on just four receptions. Fant can still be considered a hit-and-miss asset downfield for the Broncos, but Denver is hoping he can carry over his form into the rematch with Kansas City. This will be Lock’s first time facing the Chiefs, as he did not see action when they lost to Kansas City, 30-6, at home back in Week 7. The running back duo of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman also aim to better in the rematch with Kansas City, as they only combined for 71 rushing yards on 21 total carries in Week 7.
The Broncos, who are allowing just 2.0 touchdowns per game – second-fewest in the NFL – are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five road games.
Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (9-4)
The Chiefs extended their winning streak to three games after defeating the New England Patriots in Foxboro last Sunday, 23-16. The Chiefs’ defense shined once again, and it’s been gotten better of late. The Chiefs are allowing 21.6 points per game, but has lowered that to 14.0 points over their last three games. Kansas City was also able to silence Denver’s offense in the first meeting between the two teams this season, as the Broncos gathered just 205 total yards in that game. Patrick Mahomes went 10 for 19 for 117 passing yards and a touchdown in the win over the Broncos, but wasn’t able to finish the game due to an injury. Mahomes also hurt his hand in the Patriots game, though, head coach Andy Reid allayed fears of another possible absence for his star quarterback by saying Mahomes is “ok” and that there’s “no break” in his hand. In case Mahomes will be kept on the sidelines, the Chiefs will have Matt Moore under center. Moore stepped in for Mahomes in Week 7 after the latter exited the game and fired 76 passing yards on a near-flawless 10-of-11 completions.
The Chiefs are 2-0 ATS in their last two home games.
The Chiefs win, 23-20.
