NFL Futures Bet Predictions for Upcoming 2016 Regular Season!
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City (-7, 43)
Analysis: The Chiefs have won four straight against San Diego since Andy Reid took over and I expect them to make it five in a row by making a statement in their home opener against the Bolts.
The Pick: Kansas City 30 San Diego 21
New York Jets at Kansas City (-3.5)
Analysis: The Chiefs have the better quarterback in this contest by far and will be playing at home against a Jets team that could very well have the mediocre Geno Smith as their starter in this Week 3 matchup. Even if Ryan Fitzpatrick is back under center for the Jets, K.C. still wins and covers, though it will be a lot closer than if he doesn’t suit up.
The Pick: Kansas City 21 New York 14
Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City (-7)
Analysis: I don’t want to sound like I’m ‘hating’ on the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they’re not in the same class of contenders as Kansas City right now and likely won’t be for another couple of seasons, if that. The last time these two teams met, the Chiefs won convincingly 28-2 as a 3.5-point road favorite. You get the idea!
The Pick: Kansas City 31 Jacksonville 21
Oakland Raiders at Kansas City (-4.5)
Analysis: The Raiders may be a sexy pick to improve in a big way in 2016, but it is the Kansas City Chiefs that are my pick to win and cover the spread in this Week 14 AFC West divisional showdown. The Chiefs have won three straight against the Raiders and five of the last six meetings overall while going 4-2 ATS along the way. At this late juncture, I expect Kansas City to be focused on securing a playoff berth.
The Pick: Kansas City 27 Oakland 21
Tennessee Titans at Kansas City (-9)
Analysis: Look, I’m sick and tired of writing about how Tennessee went 1-7 SU and 3-4-1 ATS on the road last season. New head coach Mike Mularkey is not the answer and the Titans will find that out this coming season. Oh…and the Chiefs will likely want some payback after losing to Tennessee 26-10 the last time they met in 2014.
The Pick: Kansas City 38 Tennessee 24
Denver Broncos at Kansas City (-1.5)
Analysis: I don’t care that Denver has pretty much owned Kansas City by going 7-1 SU against their AFC West division rivals dating back to 2012. The Chiefs spanked the Broncos 29-13 in Denver no less to cash in as a 3.5-point road dog the last time these two teams met and are now poised to start a winning streak against the Broncos and their newfound questions at quarterback.
The Pick: Kansas City 28 Denver 17
