Monday Night Football Betting: Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots Odds, Prediction, and Pick

New England Patriots

Two weeks ago, this match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots would have drawn an incredible amount of hype, with two teams who were riding hot streaks.  Between weeks four and six, these two teams were both on three game winning streaks, and were talked about as being the favorites to win their respective divisions.  Things have changed quite a bit for both teams, but more one team than the other.  The Patriots suffered a two game losing streak, which they got past last week with an impressive road win against their biggest rival in the New York Jets.  The Patriots are hoping that this gets them back heading in the right direction, and that their high powered offense can continue to put up strong performances week in and week out.

On the other side of the ball is a Chiefs team who you just have to feel bad for.  They’ve had a tough year, and I don’t mean that based on how they’ve played week in and week out.  They have suffered an incredible number of season ending injuries ranging from running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry, tight end Tony Moeaki, and this week it was quarterback Matt Cassel who is most likely out for the year.  This team has been living by the phrase “next man up”, and they’ll need quarterback Tyler Palko to step in this week, which could be tough for a player who has never started an NFL game in his career.  The Chiefs have now lost two games in a row, and those two games were to the previously winless Miami Dolphins, and the Denver Broncos who have climbed back into the talks of potentially winning the AFC West.

This Monday Night Football match-up should be an interesting one, and it will definitely be a good betting option for any of the sports betting fans out there.

Free Prediction

The Chiefs have their work cut out for them this week, plain and simple.  Their defense has struggled, their offense has struggled, and now they are up against one of the best offenses in the NFL.  Kansas City will need to play mistake free football to even have a chance, and I just can’t see it happening.  The Patriots get another bonus by getting to play this one at home, and I think they win it in a walk.  I’m taking the Patriots by three touchdowns.

Prediction:  New England Patriots- 35 Kansas City Chiefs- 14

Free Pick

The Pats are set at an interesting line of -14.5, but I really can’t see this game even being close.  The Chiefs have just had too many tough losses, and their back-up’s won’t be able to keep up with this Patriots team.  And as we know, Bill Belichick and the Patriots don’t hold back against anyone.  I don’t see this week being a different story, and I’m picking the New England Patriots to cover the big point spread.

Pick:  New England Patriots -14.5
