Historians love a matchup of the Chiefs and Packers. Memories of the first-ever Super Bowl immediately come to mind. These two legacy franchises meeting in the NFL’s 100th anniversary season on Sunday Night Football seems most appropriate. However, this highly anticipated Pro Football betting matchup has been tarnished. Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes is out with injury. Which has forced backup Matt Moore under center. Moore handled himself well in a win at Denver. While Chiefs fans are worried there is an irony to the situation. Without Mahomes, KC must develop into a complete team.

Green Bay Packers Vs. Kansas City Chiefs Pro Football Betting Picks
In this situation, we have a Chiefs team missing its NFL MVP quarterback. But that will force them to rely on each other with improved effort and focus. As was previously noted Green Bay has not been a good Pro Football Betting value on the road or against KC. The Kansas City crowd should fuel the Chiefs.
