Broncos Chiefs Betting Preview
The Football gods have an interesting sense of humor. One might think that after winning 2 straight games you;d earn some favor. Instead Denver has earned a home game against the reigning world champions in what appears to be a cold and possibly snowy division game.
9 straight is more than a streak, it’s a trend. It’s also how many times the Chiefs have beat the Broncos consecutively.
According to our friends at BetRivers as of Friday Night the Broncos are a +7.5 Underdog with a 45 point Over/Under point total.
Keep in mind that this Game opened up with Denver being a +9.5 Underdog with a 49.5 point total.
With the way the line has dropped so far, we can assume that Sharp bettors and the general public thought this spread was a little too high. The impact of weather and a being a division game drove this line based on the amount of wagers attacking the apparent favorable spreads.
Wagers to Consider for Broncos-Chiefs
- The Under at 45 points- although the game total has dropped from 49 this could still be a good place to attack. Weather is going to be a factor and division games are notoriously lower scoring affairs. In similar conditions last season the Chiefs dominated Denver, but the game score was 23-3 – far from a high scoring affair.
- Game Spread – if it’s over 8 points in either direction lean that way. I’d take Denver at +8 and higher and in contrast I’d consider the Chiefs up to -8. Considering the game conditions and the way both teams are playing coming into this match up, the safe way to bet the spread is to consider this game to be decided by 1 score.
Look there’s no reason to be a homer when considering the outcome of this matchup. The Chiefs are a superior team in every facet. They are the defending Champions and look to be on a journey that could end with a repeat. Denver is playing it’s best ball under Vic Fangio but they are raw and unproven in too many positions. I expect a competitive game, Denver has high confidence right now and that;ll help keep them in it. Look for KC to pull away late in this one.
