Broncos vs Chiefs 2019 NFL Week 15 Odds, Game Info & Prediction

Written by on December 14, 2019

The fortunes of a team in the NFL can very often be predicted by the player personnel that they start the year with. While it is certainly possible to put together a good group of guys that don’t have a ton of big-name players and win, those instances are few and far between. Generally speaking, it is the teams with the best players at the QB position who are going to be in the running to win the Super Bowl every single year. It is why, year after year, we see the teams with the top picks in the draft go after a QB that they hope will be the one to lift them out of the cellar and back into contention.

It’s a big leap from college to the NFL, though, which is why we see so many young QB fail to make the grade. One who has made the move look easy, though, is Patrick Mahomes, as he has been outstanding through his first two seasons. He will once again try to lead his team to victory in Week 15 when the Chiefs welcome the Denver Broncos to town. The Chiefs are in as an 11 ½ point home favorite, with the point total set at 45 ½.

Why bet on the Denver Broncos?

Last offseason, the Denver Broncos doubled down in an effort to improve their QB situation. They drafted Drew Lock from Missouri, but rather than throwing the young man into the fire, they also went out and picked up Joe Flacco for a lot of money from the free agent mark. The latter move has proven to be a bust, but a game and a half into his NFL career, Lock looks to be a savvy piece of business.

The Broncos have won back to back games, and in his first start, Lock threw for over 300 yards, with 38 points hitting the board. The Broncos, though, are 0-8 SU in their last 8 versus the Chiefs, although they are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 visits to Arrowhead.

Why bet on the Kansas City Chiefs?

While the Chiefs have basically been at the top of the AFC West since Week 1, they did look to be in a rather precarious situation a few weeks ago, as the losses were starting to come and the chasing pack were drawing a little closer. That seems like a distant memory now, with the Chiefs rolling out 3 straight wins, including a huge one over the New England Patriots in Week 14.

Broncos vs Chiefs should be a high scoring game.

That victory now has the Chiefs sitting in the #3 spot in the AFC and knocking on the door of an opening round bye. The Chiefs are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last 5 games and have won each of their last 5 versus AFC West opponents. They are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games played in the month of December.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Broncos vs Chiefs

Over the last 10 meetings between the Chiefs and the Broncos, Kansas City have come out on top 7 times. That said, the average margin of victory was just 7 PPG, and I think it might be more of the same here. I like the Chiefs to win and the Broncos to cover.

Score: Denver Broncos 23 – Kansas City Chiefs 30
