Both teams are coming off losses but at least the Chiefs are still tied for the lead in their division while the Cardinals are on the verge of collapse. Gamblers at the Sbg global sportsbook are taking the Chiefs in this game with their NFL bet.
Chiefs -7.5, total 44
Kansas City is at home and they are facing an Arizona team that has lost four straight. It is no surprise to see Kansas City favored by more than a touchdown. The Chiefs did not play well last week as they were routed by Denver but most people believe they will bounce back at home against a poor Arizona team. The Chiefs have a very good running game with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones and they should find success in this game against a poor Arizona defense. Kansas City’s defense is nothing special but that is not a big concern this week since Arizona’s offense is not very good.
The Cardinals have not won since Week 5. The Cardinals are simply playing poorly on both sides of the ball and are not serious playoff contenders. The Cardinals have settled on Derek Anderson at quarterback and he is capable of hitting some big plays but he also makes too many mistakes. The Cardinals have had no running game which really puts the pressure on Anderson.
Trends Give Cardinals a Chance
Even though things look bad for Arizona in this game they do have some positive trends. They are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 11 and they are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog. The problem is that they are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. What helps them though is that Kansas City has been rotten at home. The Chiefs are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 home games. People think that the Chiefs are tough at Arrowhead Stadium but the numbers sure don’t support opinion. And keep in mind that the Chiefs are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite. Do you really trust a Todd Haley team laying points? Maybe the total is a better bet in NFL wagering online. The Over is 7-1 in the Cardinals last 8 games overall. The Over is 4-1 in the Chiefs last 5 games overall and the Over is 17-7-2 in the Chiefs last 26 home games.
