Kansas City Chiefs
Last week Kansas City exercised a lot of betting on NFL demons in their 31-13 home payout over the Colts. Indeed, the Chiefs long litany of playoff disasters was averted with a dominant effort. Most important of all was a defense that was much more impactful than what was the case in the regular season. The Indianapolis offense was completely suffocated. That leads to the legitimate question about which Chiefs defense will show up on Sunday. Meanwhile Patrick Mahomes threw for 278 yards. Damien Williams added 129 yards rushing with a touchdown.
New England Patriots
In the same way did New England impress with surprising ease last week in a 41-28 online wagering home payout over the Chargers. The Pats led 38-3 late in the third quarter before calling off the dogs. Extending New England’s success was Tom Brady’s 343 yards passing with one TD. Sony Michel ran for 129 yards and three scores. Increasingly it was a reminder as to why the Patriots dynasty has been so difficult to topple. Likewise, the Chiefs have nowhere near such playoff experience or success.
Stats to Consider
New England has been a dangerous road dog over the years. In fact, the Patriots have paid in 10 of their last 14 games getting points on the road. Just four of their last 12 in that situation have gone under the total. Along the same lines the Chiefs have been a solid value as a home favorite. KC has covered 11 of their last 18 games laying points at Arrowhead Stadium. Nine of their last 12 in that place have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Fashion the 43-40 home win by New England over the Chiefs earlier this season as 3.5-point overlays. KC has paid in five of their last seven meetings with the Pats. The last four meetings have gone over the total. Further, at Arrowhead the Chiefs have covered the last two meetings in this matchup. Three of the last four between these teams at Kansas City went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Fashion that this is New England’s eighth consecutive AFC championship game appearance. The Betting on NFL fact is that the league rules are set to prevent such regular success. An artic blast is expected for this game in Kansas City. On this occasion the proven power plus the points looks like the right call.
