Why the Kansas City Chiefs are a good bet -5?

The Chiefs have won 4 straight. They haven’t just won 4 straight. Kansas City has also covered in all 4 as a favorite. While Patrick Mahomes has played great, it’s KC’s defense that has stepped it up. The Chiefs held Oakland to 9 points on Dec. 1, New England to 16 on Dec. 8, and Denver to 3 on Dec. 15. Kansas City’s defense should have no trouble containing Chicago’s offense on Sunday night.

Why the Chicago Bears are a good bet +5?

The Bears failed to score more than 13 points versus the Packers in their last. But in the game before, they beat the Dallas Cowboys 31-24. Chicago can move the football against a Kansas City defense that yields 131.6 rushing yards per game. If the Bears get their rushing attack going, they can make this game closer than the spread.

Chiefs vs Bears Final NFL Betting Analysis

Chicago had high hopes heading into the season. Those hopes were dashed after losing to the Green Bay Packers in Week 15. The loss sent the Bears to 9-7. Although there’s a chance Chicago finishes the regular season with a .500 record, they have no shot of making the playoffs.

That’s a huge disappointment. So much so that it’s hard to see Chicago playing as well on Sunday as they would have if the game meant anything. Kansas City can get a bye if New England loses 1 of their next 2 games.

One team has a lot to play for. The other has nothing to play for. Back the team with the better offense and with something at stake. That’s the Kansas City Chiefs.
