Kansas City Chiefs vs New England Patriots Moneyline Preview

Posted by Michael Hunt on Friday,January 15, 2016 3:32, EST in

The Kansas City Chiefs come into Gillette Stadium riding high after their 30-0 thrashing of the Texans. As if their 11 game win streak wasn’t another reason to be high on the Chiefs, they destroy the Texans and give bettors even more confidence. Despite their success for literally 3 months in a row, they’re still 4.5 point underdogs as of right now on MyBookie.ag Online Sportsbook. They’re also sitting at +200 on the money line, while the Patriots are at -240. We’ve seen a lot of line movement in this game, and bettors seem to be moving the line towards the Patriots at this moment. Surely this game is going to feature some amazing NFL football betting action, so let’s take a peek at the matchup.

Why Bet on the New England Patriots at -240:

The Patriots have never been the underdog over the last 16 games in any matchup. There’s a reason for that – Tom Brady. Brady succeeds during the regular season, but during the postseason he’s even more dangerous. The Patriots are hungry for another Super Bowl after winning their last one just 11 months ago, and if any team is going to do it, it’s going to be them. A dominant defense, a great offense that’s regaining all of its options. The only thing that stands in their way is a few AFC foes and one NFC competitor.

 

The Chiefs look great on paper, with their huge win streak and their dominant victory last week. Here’s the deal though: the Chiefs and the Patriots simply aren’t on the same level. I think the true Chiefs will show in this game, and the Patriots will close out this game with a victory. Alex Smith and Tom Brady aren’t comparable at all. Neither are each team’s defenses. If the Patriots end up losing this one, it’ll be a miracle.

Why Bet on the Kansas City Chiefs at +200:

If you’re a fan of the recency bias, the Chiefs are the option for you. If you’re not, don’t bet on this team. Nobody knows how they keep winning, but they do. You take away their best player in Jamaal Charles and they go on an 11 game win streak and can’t seem to be stopped. They’re firing on all cylinders and are as confident as ever. If you want to bet on a team that’s 11-0 ATS in their last 11 games, the Chiefs are hard to bet against. The Patriots are just about the hardest team to bet AGAINST, but if there’s a team that’s going to knock them down, it’s going to be the Chiefs.
