Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)
The deeper the season goes, the higher Kansas City’s confidence gets. If the Chiefs take down Tom Brady and company this coming Sunday, they’re truly be feeling like the sky is their only limit. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been nothing but fantastic so far. He leads the NFL with 14 touchdown passes. That said, he’s coming off his “worst” start this season, as he didn’t score a touchdown and was intercepted twice, albeit in a 30-14 home win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still, he threw for 313 passing yards on 22-of-38 completions. The Patriots’ defense can’t be confused with Jacksonville’s, so Mahomes should be able to slice through with relative ease New England’s stop unit that allows 252 passing yards per game. The Chiefs will also be parading tight end Travis Kelce, who went off for 100 receiving yards on five catches in the Jags game. Don’t be surprised if he explodes again this weekend, as the Patriots just surrendered 105 receiving yards to Eric Ebron in Week 5.
The Chiefs are 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four road games.
Betting on the New England Patriots (3-2)
After suffering back-to-back losses, the Patriots have silenced a bit their naysayers by defeating the Miami Dolphins and the Indianapolis Colts in Weeks 4 and 5, respectively. In their 38-24 home win over the Colts last week, Tom Brady tossed the ball for 341 yards and three touchdowns. He was intercepted twice, but was still fantastic with his 34-of-44 completion line. Brady has seen every type of defense imaginable in his long and decorated NFL career, so he should be feeling good about his chances of seeing the end zone multiple times against Kansas City, which is last in the league in total defense with a dizzying average of 461.8 total yards allowed per game. It helps the Pats’ conditioning that they did not have to travel to play games over the last two weeks.
The Pats are 10-1 SU in their last 11 home games.
Kansas City wins, 31-28.
