Chiefs Go For Eighth Straight Win Against AFC West Opponents

Mile High Stadium will host one of the hottest division matchups of this NFL season on Sunday night when the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos, who are both 7-3, meet in the first half of their two-game season series.

SHARK BITES
  • The Chiefs are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games against teams in the AFC West.
  • The Broncos are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against the Chiefs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Chiefs' last 6 games.

This game opened with the smallest total on the board and with the third- and ninth-rated DVOA defenses facing off, that seems to make sense. The Broncos are 0-2 when they’ve given up more than 250 passing yards but the Chiefs are averaging just 235.9 passing yards per game and Denver has given up just 194.3 per game.

It seems very unlikely the banged-up Chiefs produce much offense against these stingy Broncos after putting up an average of just 18.67 points per game in their last three games, which came against the Jaguars, Panthers and Buccaneers – teams who have all given up 24.6 or more points per game this season.

The Broncos have not been scoring much themselves and if they hold KC to under 14 points like I’m expecting them to, this game has a really good chance to go UNDER. This spread may be a tough one and I’d suggest saving this game for the final button on your Sunday teaser.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The point spread was settled in at -3.5 for the host Denver Broncos earlier in the week, according to Bovada. The over under betting line was hovering around 40.5, with odds movement expected during the week at MyBookie.
