Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-4)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
It’s such a luxury for the Chiefs that they have Patrick Mahomes. With Mahomes orchestrating the offense, the Chiefs were able to erase a big lead and come back from behind on their way to a 33-29 home win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. Mahomes went 27/36 for 337 passing yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Mahomes and company can keep it going against the Ravens, who got lit up by the duo of Derek Carr and Darren Waller last Monday. Waller had 105 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 catches. Who’s to say Travis Kelce, arguably the best tight end in the game today wouldn’t be able to be just as good — if not better than that performance from Waller. Kelce had 76 receiving yards and two touchdowns on six catches. Meanwhile, Tyreek Hill went off for 197 receiving yards and a touchdown on 11 catches. Those are two huge problems for Baltimore’s defense.
The Chiefs are 12-3 against the spread in their last 15 September games.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (+4)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
The Ravens were on their way to beating the Las Vegas Raiders in Week but their defense kept Derek Carr and company in the game leading to a 33-27 road loss for Baltimore. Lamar Jackson did all he can to keep the Ravens afloat. He finished with 235 passing yards and a touchdown on 19/30 completions and also led his team with 86 rushing yards on 12 carries. Jackson was sacked three times though for a loss of 18 yards. The Ravens need to protect their quarterback a lot better, especially since the run game depends so much on him after the loss of JK Dobbins to a season-ending injury. While there are issues to fix on their offensive line of Baltimore, it appears that the Chiefs are not the type of team that’s going to expose them. For one, the Chiefs’ defense was barely felt in Week 1, with the Browns running all over Kansas City on the ground. The Browns had 153 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 26 carries. Jackson could definitely light the Chiefs up with his legs.
The Ravens are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as an underdog.
The Chiefs win, 30-27.
