Pats vs Chiefs in MNF Betting

The strange trend of the New England Patriots failing to cover NFL point spreads at home in the month of November continued two weeks as they lost to the Giants.

This time, it's the Kansas City Chiefs visiting Foxboro on Monday Night Football with the odds stacked high against KC. And they will look to continue a 2-11 ATS run for the Pats at home in November. [ See dozens of Tom Brady and New England Patriots Monday Night props at bottom of this article ]

However, bettors who follow Monday Night Football trends can hardly recall a game when the Patriots played UNDER at home on MNF. The last time was 1998 and the OVER is 7-0-1 in eight MNF home game since then. Also of note, the Patrots 7-3 ATS overall in their past 10 Monday Nighters.
