The Kansas City Chiefs are surprisingly struggling, but they can still right the boat when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles on the road this week. The Eagles have also hit a rough patch and are needing a win to stabilize their situation before it gets worse. Check out preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles Regular Season Week 4 Game on October 3, 2021
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
When: Sunday, October 3, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-7.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
There’s no need to hit the panic button yet for the Chiefs. Even though they started the season 1-2 after three games, this is a team that has Patrick Mahomes and an offense that can outscore just about anyone on the football field. The problem is obviously their defense that is allowing 430 total yards per game, so far this season. It may take some time before the Chiefs solve their defense, so in the meantime, they will continue to rely on Mahomes and their offense that is averaging 30.7 points per game and 4.0 touchdowns per contest, fifth and third overall in the NFL, respectively. Philadelphia’s defense showed some early promise but it had just been gutted by the Dallas Cowboys last Monday. Mahomes should have fun slicing through the Eagles’ stop unit, and you could expect tight end Travis Kelce to have a field day in Philly after seeing Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz lay waste on Philadelphia’s defense in Week 3.
The under is 4-0 in the Chiefs’ last four games after a loss.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+7.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
Like the Chiefs, the Eagles won in Week 1 then lost their two games since. The latest was a 41-21 loss on the road to the Cowboys Monday night. Jalen Hurts went 25/39 for 326 passing yards and two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. However, most of the success he had passing the ball was when the Eagles were already way behind the Cowboys. The Eagles ran into Dallas’ brick-wall defense, basically. But that might not be as tough for Philly’s offense this week, as the team will be up against the problematic defense of the Chiefs that’s last in the league in yards allowed per play (7.0) and 20th in opponents third-down percentage (41.38). Dallas Goedert, Zach Ertz, Jalen Reagor, and DeVonta Smith can have a bigger breathing room downfield against Kansas City, while Hurts’ mobility could be a problem for the Chiefs’ stop unit.
The Eagles are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as the home underdog.
The Chiefs win, 32-20.
