The Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers lock horns in the last week of the preseason, and there’s a chance both superstar quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers will see action. In any case, this is an interesting matchup that has some potential to be the game of the week. The Chiefs and the Packers are +650 and +1800 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.
Betting Preview for the Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers NFL Preseason Week 4 Game on August 29, 2019

Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (1-2)
It took the Chiefs’ defense to make San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo look good. In their 27-17 home loss to the Niners, Garoppolo recovered from a bad outing and finished with 188 passing yards and a touchdown without an error. It’s only the preseason, but giving up that kind of performance doesn’t give positive vibes for Kansas City’s defense that is supposedly better and deeper than it was a season ago. There’s always the Chiefs’ defense, though. Patrick Mahomes went 8 of 10 for 126 passing yards and a touchdown in the Niners game, while Kyle Shurmur had a strong outing himself, going 67 yards on 9-for-12 completions. If the Chiefs decide to keep Mahomes on the shelf for the last week of the preseason, at least they can depend on Shurmur to shoulder most of the duties under center.
The Chiefs are 5-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 preseason games.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (1-2)
Preseason games are hard to trust enough, but it lost more sense to it during the Packers’ 22-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Canada, as the game was played on an 80-yard field due to conditions of the field. As a result, the Packers didn’t bother to send star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the game and let Tim Boyle and DeShone Kizer share the responsibilities under center. Boyle impressed, tossing a pair of touchdowns and finished with 191 passing yards on 16-for-25 completions, while Kizer was the Kizer we all know in that game, going 4 of 7 for 24 yards and an interception. With Green Bay set to play again on American soil and on a much better field, there’s a chance Rodgers could play for the final dress rehearsal before the regular season kicks off. That could be good news for wide receiver Trevor Davis, who made his preseason debut in the Oakland game and caught five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown.
The over is 4-0 in the Packers’ last four preseason games.
The Packers win, 26-21.
