Week 15 NFL Betting Odds: Tennessee At Kansas City
There are some teams that make a lot of noise on their way to a division title, and then there ae those that seem to go about their business very quietly. This weekend sees a pair of potential division winners go head to head, yet both teams have flown somewhat under the radar this season. The Kansas City Chiefs are tied for the AFC West with a 10-3 record, yet they have fallen under the shadow of the resurgent Oakland Raiders in that division. The Tennessee Titans are just 7-6 on the season, but that is enough to have them tied for the top spot in the crowded AFC South. Neither team can afford to take a loss if they want to go on to win their respective divisions, but it’s fair to say that there is much more pressure on the Titans, as the Chiefs look like a playoff lock at this stage of the season. The Chiefs are currently favored by 5-points in this one.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans
No-one really gave this Tennessee Titans team much of a shot of making the playoffs heading into this season, so their position atop the AFC South is more than a little surprising. They have earned it, though, and are coming into this game on a modest 2-game winning streak that included a win against the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos last weekend. This is not a team that can be considered a real offensive threat, but they have a habit of keeping things tight and taking advantage of their opportunities when they arrive. Their last two wins were by a combined 9 points, so look for them to try and keep things close on the road.
Why bet on the Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are once again proving to be a very tough nut to crack at Arrowhead Stadium, as they have only lost 1 game there all season. Part of their success in recent years has been the ability to turn their home field into something of a fortress, so you can imagine that they will be going all out to win the AFC in order to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Chiefs play a style that is very similar to Tennessee, which is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone if this one turns out to be a close, low-scoring affair that may well be decided by a turnover at a crucial time.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Part of the reason why the Titans have been so successful in recent weeks is because they have been so good at protecting the football, with no turnovers in their last 4 games. That should help them stay close in this game, but I think they will fall just short.
