Will the Chiefs contribute to the Giants’ misery season?

The New York Giants return home to host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11 and head coach Ben McAdoo may as well have stayed in vibrant San Francisco. After a crushing loss to the formerly winless 49ers and falling to a listless 1-8 SU this season, McAdoo is on the fast track to be the first NFL coach fired. The Giants opened as a double-digit dog at home for the first time since Week 17 in 2007.

SHARK BITES
  • The Chiefs are 9-2 SU and ATS in their last 11 games on the road.
  • The Giants are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of Kansas City’s last 8 games on the road.

Bettors shouldn’t spend too much time deep-diving and looking for an edge for the Giants. This season has been nothing short of a disaster for New York. Expected to compete for the NFC East and contend for the Super Bowl, the only thing they can compete for now is the first pick in the upcoming draft. The Giants rank in the bottom three in both passing yards allowed (267.8) and rushing yards allowed (132.6) this season and considering their defense was expected to be their foundation, statistics like that support the belief that this team has quit on its coach. Placing a wager for the Giants to cover would be a fool’s bet at this stage of the season, especially when you consider they’re 1-4 ATS in their last five and 0-4 ATS at home.

After starting the year 6-0 SU and ATS, the Chiefs were the experts’ pick to dethrone the Patriots in the AFC and contend for the Super Bowl. Since a tough loss to Pittsburgh in Week 7, Kansas City is having trouble regaining that spark and has gone 1-3 SU and ATS in its last four games. While they should dispatch the Giants this week, a troubling stat for KC is that their pass defense is allowing 259 yards per game through the air (ranked 25th). If the Chiefs (who had yet to be a double-digit favorite this season) can’t cover against the downtrodden Giants, their secondary may be their downfall.

The total opened at 43.5 and bettors should seriously consider the OVER. The total has gone OVER in five of the Giants’ last seven games despite their horrendous offense. The Giants are ranked 27th in the league at 16.67 points per game and luckily for OVER bettors, the Chiefs hover around 28 points per game (ranked fifth). Look for KC to do most of the heavy lifting in the scoring department in this one.
