The Kansas City Chiefs are surprisingly struggling to win games this season. Up next for them will be a game against the upset-seeking Washington Football Team, who are looking to get back in the win column just like Kansas City. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Kansas City Chiefs vs Washington Football Team Regular Season Week 6 Game on October 17, 2021
Where: FedExField, Landover
When: Sunday, October 17, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-3
Who would’ve thought prior to the season that the Chiefs will be 2-3 by the time Week 6 rolls around? The Chiefs have lost three of their last four, a stretch that includes their 38-20 home loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. The offense is certainly is there for Kansas City. The Chiefs scored just 20 points in Week 5, but they did it against arguably the best defensive team in the league. There shouldn’t be much problem for Patrick Mahomes and company in gaining yards and finding the end zone against Washington’s defense that’s second-worst in the NFL thus far with 31.0 points allowed per game and just 27th overall against the pass with 293.4 passing yards surrendered per contest. The Chiefs won’t have running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, though, after he suffered an MCL sprain in the Bills game. Darrel Williams and Jerick McKinnon will likely split the workload for now in the backfield for Kansas City.\
The Chiefs are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games after a loss.
Betting on the Washington Football Team (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-3
Who would’ve thought prior to the season that the Washington Football Team would have the same record as Kansas City by the time these two teams square off in Week 6? Washington is coming off a 33-22 home loss to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. The Football Team’s passing attack couldn’t get it together in that game, with Taylor Heinicke passing for 248 yards and zero touchdowns along with two interceptions on 20/41 completions. It was running back Antonio Gibson who saved Washington’s offense from being a complete embarrassment, as he rushed for 60 yards and a couple of touchdowns on 20 carries. Gibson is as talented as they come, and it’s good to know for the Football Team that they have someone like him to rely on. Gibson can make loud noises again in Week 6, given the porous run defense of Kansas City. The Chiefs are just 29th in the NFL with 141.0 rushing yards allowed per game
Washington is 9-3 against the spread in its last 12 games after losing by at last 10 points at home in the previous outing.
The Chiefs win, 34-20.
