Kansas City Chiefs

KC ranks 31st in the NFL for overall defense and 20th for points allowed. Of course, Mahomes has a 116.7 rating with 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Stats to Consider
Kansas City has significantly increased in wagering value as a home chalk. For example, the Chiefs have paid in six of their last eight laying points at Arrowhead Stadium. Eight of their last nine as home favorites have also gone under the number. Counter to that is Arizona’s poor wagering value as a road dog. Consider the Cardinals getting the money in just three of their last 12 in that role. Arizona has gone over in 11 of their last 14 when getting points on the road.
Team vs. Team
Head to head Kansas City has held a slight edge with Arizona. To show the Chiefs have covered four of their last seven games with Arizona. Five of the last eight meetings in this series have gone under the total. So too has KC dominated the Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium. On the whole the Chiefs have paid in three straight home games with Arizona. Two of those three games went over the total.
Matchup to Watch
Certainly, this is a huge number for the Chiefs. Cause by their overwhelming offensive firepower do they have the Bet on NFL matchup advantage. Owing to Kansas City’s good value at Arrowhead is enhanced confidence.
