Jets Getting a Pile of Points vs Chiefs

New York Jets vs. Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview

Well, this should be fun. Bettors will be treated to one of the biggest spreads of the 2020 NFL season on Sunday when the New York Jets visit the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. These teams couldn’t be further apart from a talent perspective, with the Jets (0-7 SU, 1-6 ATS) boasting the league’s worst offense and the Chiefs (6-1 SU, 5-2 ATS) ranked No. 2 in scoring.

Opening Odds Analysis

The Chiefs were seeing look-ahead lines as high as -23 but have settled into the -19.5 range where the odds opened. The total is installed at 48.

New York News & Notes

We might as well start with the positives: The Jets were defensively stout in last week’s loss to the Buffalo Bills, holding the AFC East leaders without a touchdown despite allowing 422 total yards.

New York has held its previous two opponents to an average of 21 points after allowing 30 or more points in four consecutive games (going 0-4 ATS over that stretch).

That’s about all of the good stuff we have. The Jets are averaging just over 12 points per game for the season, with Joe Flacco and Sam Darnold combining to complete 56.3 percent of their passes for four touchdowns and seven interceptions. The running back duo of Frank Gore and La’Mical Perine averages just 3.6 yards per carry with just one rushing score in 119 attempts.

Kansas City News & Notes

Whatever happened in Week 5 against Las Vegas has long been forgotten, with the Chiefs reeling off consecutive victories in Buffalo and Denver to build a 2.5-game lead over the Raiders atop the AFC West. Most impressively, Kansas City held the Bills and Broncos to a combined 33 points and has surrendered more than 20 in a game just once through seven outings.

With the Chiefs expected to waltz to victory in this one, there’s a clear low-ownership daily fantasy option with big-time potential upside. Not only should new backfield acquisition Le’Veon Bell see plenty of work, he’ll have added motivation to stick it to the team that cut him after less than one and a half seasons, during which he averaged 3.3 yards per carry with four TDs in 17 games.

Betting Pick: New York +19.5 (-110)

Nearly three touchdowns is a lot of points for any matchup, even this one – and while a lot of things could go sideways for the Jets, their recent defensive showing gives them a shot here.
