The Chiefs are just one-point favorites this week even though the Broncos are 2-6 and in last place. Making an NFL bet on the Broncos this season has not been successful but they are at home and they are coming off a bye so this could be the game for Denver.
Kansas City Running Game
We know exactly what the Chiefs are going to do this week. They are going to run the ball on virtually every play. Last year the Chiefs ran for 317 yards against the Broncos in the last game of the season. Kansas City is just as good this year running the ball. They lead the league in rushing with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones.
Is Kansas City for Real?
This is a huge week for Kansas City. They lost last week in overtime to Oakland and gave the game away. If the Chiefs are for real they will bounce back and beat the Broncos. If they are a fraud then they will find a way to lose this game.
What Does Denver Do?
The Broncos were really bad before their bye week so it will be interesting to see how they do this week. Kyle Orton has played well at quarterback but the Broncos can’t run the ball. Their defense is also not very good. Denver is at home though and this is a rivalry game against Kansas City so if the Broncos are to turn their season around they have to win this game.
The Chiefs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. The problem if you like Kansas City is that they are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.
