Last week at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City the Chiefs made NFL betting History. Shockingly down 24-0 early in the second quarter, the Chiefs exploded for 41 straight points to destroy the pretender Houston Texans 51-31. Most important of all the Chiefs covered as 10-point favorites. Talk about a wild roller coaster ride for gamblers! Kansas City showed character and resilience that they have previously not shown in the postseason. Specifically, quarterback Patrick Mahomes simply would not let the Chiefs fold as they have in the past. Now the upstart Tennessee Titans come calling for the AFC Championship.

Tennessee Titans Vs. Kansas City Chiefs Overview
Namely, Patrick Mahomes was the online betting trigger man for the Chiefs win over Houston. Mahomes threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns in the inspiring comeback. Additionally, tight end Travis Kelce was dominant with 10 receptions good for 134 yards and three touchdowns. Kelce exposed the Texans as utterly helpless to stop him.
By contrast, Tennessee scored its second consecutive major upsets in as many weeks. Top seed Baltimore was the victim in a 28-12 loss as 10-point home chalks. Raven’s quarterbacking sensation Lamar Jackson was held in check all day. To illuminate a half back jump touchdown pass from Corey Davis to Derrick Henry was the backbreaker.
