Why Kansas City Chiefs are a good bet at -3 ½?

Things haven’t worked out Kansas City’s way, but on Thursday the Chiefs play a team that should have no shot at keeping up on the scoreboard. Kansas City averages 27.7 points per. KC racks up an average of 422 yards per.

Because the Chiefs have one of the top offenses in football, and Denver has one of the worst, Kansas City has a massive advantage. Even if Denver’s defense plays well, there’s no way the Broncos offense can stick with the Chiefs.

Team Statistics

Offense:
  • Total Yards: 422
  • Passing Yards: 339.3
  • Rushing Yards: 82.7
  • Points Scored: 28.7
Defense:
  • Total Yards: 406.2
  • Passing Yards: 244.3
  • Rushing Yards: 161.8
  • Points Allowed: 24

Why Denver Broncos are a good bet at +3 ½?

Although Denver does have a pedestrian offense, the Broncos have one of the top defenses in football. Denver shut out the Tennessee Titans in Week 6 in a fantastic 16-0 victory. Before that, they held the L.A. Chargers to only 13 points in another win.

Denver’s defense faces a much better offense than what the Chargers or Titans field. However, the defense is good enough to contain Patrick Mahomes the way the Texans did in Week 6 and the Colts did in Week 5.

Team Statistics

Offense:
  • Total Yards: 353.2
  • Passing Yards: 234.6

Defense:

Chiefs vs Broncos Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Kansas City Chiefs defense has been one of the worst units in the NFL this season. The Chiefs defense often isn’t great, but the way they’ve played this season is ridiculous. KC allows 406.2 total yards per game.

Opponents do whatever they want against the Chiefs. Denver will try and rush it down Kansas City’s throats. They average 116 yards per versus decent rush defenses. Because the Chiefs give up 161.8 rushing yards per game on average, the Broncos have a serious edge on the ground.

Denver could very well hand KC their third straight loss. If anything, expect the Chiefs to bumble their way to another close 1 to 2 point win.

NFL Free Pick: Denver Broncos +3 ½
