The Kansas City Chiefs are 11-point NFL betting spread favorites against the New York Giants, and are ready to flush them down the can like nose tackle Roy Miller did his wife’s cellphone. It looks like lunacy has found him, as it did this Giants fan, and said Giants have a pretty good chance of leaving their own stadium in the same fashion – battered, bruised, and bloodied, not unlike, actually, Miller’s soon to be, if she’s not devoid of sense, like coach Ben McAdoo seems to be, ex-wife.

Hungry violence-seeker, feeding off the weaker
The Chiefs’ are the biggest faves they have been since like 1992, and with good reason. Andy Reid-coached teams are 16-2 SU following a bye week, and KC is 3-1 SU and ATS after their week off since Reid arrived in 2013. You could almost make NFL prop bets out of that. On the other hand, the Chiefs are 0-6 SU against the Giants in New York, but if there is a first time for everything and if there was ever a first time for that, this is it. the week off couldn’t have come at a better time, if trends hold, because KC could use a ‘feel-good’ win after going 1-3 straight-up and against the NFL betting spread (though Alex Smith has remained stellar, throwing seven touchdown passes and just one interception in those four games), though they’re still in a good position, leading the AFC West and making the Kansas City Star wondering whether the Chiefs could be one half of the NFL Superbowl line.

Weak are ripped and torn away
The Giants 2017 season is such a tragedy that Coach McAdoo should start quoting Milton in his press conferences: “And in the lowest deep a lower deep/Still threat’ning to devour me, opens wide/To which the hell I suffer seems a heaven.” One would be tempted to say that the Blue Boys are bottom-barreling, except that this team isn’t the bottom of the barrel. This team isn’t below the bottom of the barrel. This team doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels. The Giants have lost and failed to cover in their last three straight games, including an embarrassing 21-31 defeat to the previously winless 49ers. You will now and forever be a footnote as Kyle Shanahan’s first win as a head coach. It has gotten so bad that McAdoo’s own players seem to be staging the only kind of protest that actually matters in football; that is to say, half-arsing it on the gridiron. “We got seven games left,” McAdoo said. “We got a lot of football left to play.” Well, at least the Giants do, but chances are McAdoo don’t (McAdon’t?). The New York team has been routed the past two weeks and the total went over on both occasions. Since the Chiefs are, barring any unforeseen event, going to dissect the Giants, one could safely assume the NFL betting spread total will go over as well this time.
