The Kansas City Chiefs are favored in NFL wagering online odds for the first time this season on Sunday as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Chiefs have been a nice story this season but they are coming off two straight losses. They are probably going to get the bulk of the action from gamblers making an NFL bet though as people don’t want anything to do with Jacksonville after how bad they looked on Monday night.
The Chiefs are likely to be laying anywhere from 4 to 7 points at home in this game against Jacksonville. It will depend upon the status of Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard who left last week’s game vs. Tennessee with a concussion. If Garrard is out then it would be Trent Edwards getting the start for Jacksonville and that means bettors at Sbg global would be running to bet the Chiefs.
Jaguars 3-3 – The Jacksonville Jaguars are 3-3 but in their three losses they have been dreadful. All three of their losses this season have come by 25 points or more. They were destroyed at San Diego and at home against Philadelphia and Tennessee. Can Kansas City win in a blowout? They have only one win by a big margin and that came at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
Chiefs 3-2 – The Chiefs are 3-2 but they have lost two straight games. They simply couldn’t stop Houston last week and lost to the Texans in a shootout. That should not be a problem this week against a poor Jacksonville offense. Kansas City is 4-1 against the spread this season and they are getting the bulk of the action from bettors in this game against the Jaguars.
Trends Also Favor Kansas City – There is not a lot to like about the Jaguars this week. They could be going with a backup quarterback and the trends are not on their side either. The Jaguars are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 7. The Jaguars are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Jaguars are 8-26 ATS in their last 34 games on grass. The Jaguars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Chiefs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Chiefs are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games in Week 7. The one concern if you like Kansas City is that they are 7-16 against the NFL wagering online odds in their last 23 home games.
