September 26th, 2019 NFL Football, Online Betting

At the onset of the season, Kansas City was a top tier NFL betting favorite to make it to Super Sunday.  The Chiefs have the best offense in football and a defense that has shown improvement under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.  By contrast, the Detroit Lions are the biggest surprise in the NFL.  Always an underachiever the Lions are yet to lose and looking capable of the playoffs.  Head coach Matt Patricia had a tough first season but has a team that fits his vision more in 2019.  Now the Lions have a huge opportunity in hosting the explosive Chiefs.
