NFL betting odds have the New York Jets as double-digit favorites at home against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
The Jets are just a 3-3 football team but they are facing the 1-5 Chiefs. New York has gotten a lot of attention from gamblers that bet on football because of quarterback Brett Favre but that has not translated into NFL betting pointspread success so far this season.
NFL betting history shows that the Chiefs and Jets have met just five times in the past ten years. Two of those meetings were in the last three years though and the teams split those games according to NFL betting stats. Last year the Jets won 13-10 at home against Kansas City but did not cover the NFL betting pointspread. The Chiefs this season have played very poorly and if not for Detroit and Cincinnati, could be considered the worst team in the NFL. Kansas City has no offense and the defense is only average according to NFL betting numbers. Tennessee shredded Kansas City for more than 300 yards on the ground last week in routing the Chiefs and easily covering the NFL betting number. The Jets could have similar success with Thomas Jones running the ball. Gamblers that bet on football will be taking the Jets in this game, even laying the big NFL betting number. Perhaps the professional gamblers will look at the big pointspread in NFL odds Week 8 numbers but Kansas City has very little appeal this season to most people that bet on football.
Totals bettors should be aware that the under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings between the two teams according to NFL betting numbers. NFL betting stats show that the Chiefs have been a big under team in recent seasons on the road for gamblers that bet on football. Since 2005, they have gone under almost 65% of the time on the road according to NFL betting numbers. Since the Chiefs can’t score points this season it makes sense that their games have a reasonably good chance of going under the pointspread.
