OVER Bettors Love Seeing Chiefs & Falcons Meet

Two very different offenses are set to collide in Week 13 when the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Georgia to do battle with the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams sit atop their respective divisions after triumphing last weekend.

Shark Bites
  • The Chiefs are 7-1 SU and ATS in their last eight games on the road after covering in their most recent road game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Falcons' last seven games in December.
  • The Falcons are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a favorite of 4.0 or less.

Sportsbooks opened the Chiefs as 4-point underdogs with a total of 49.

If you’re looking for underdog value, it’s likely best to avoid this matchup. Favorites have gone 6-1 SU and ATS in the last seven meetings between Atlanta and K.C.

The OVER has been a fantastic bet in this series, though. In their past four tilts, the OVER is a perfect 4-0.

Kansas City, which toppled Denver 30-27 as 3.5-point dogs, is a poor bet to cash spread tickets two weeks in a row. The Chiefs are 0-7 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win.

Behind MVP candidate Matt Ryan, the Falcons rank third in the NFL with 411.5 total yards per game. Their 32.5 points per game is tops in the league. Defensively, they’ve been a mess, as they’re allowing opposing teams to average 381 yards per game.

It’s the opposite for the Chiefs. Kansas City is averaging 328.3 yards per game – 27th in the NFL – while throwing for just 231.7.
