Why bet on Kansas City versus Tennessee?
The Chiefs entered NFL Week 6 with a 2-3 record. KC exited the week with a 3-3 record and looking like the Chiefs of old. Kansas City held the Washington Football Team to zero points in the second half on their way to a fantastic 31-13 victory. The game could be a sign that Mahomes and his mates have put the early season struggles behind them. If it is, KC should not only win but cover the spread.

No team impressed more in NFL Week 6 than the Tennessee Titans. The Titans faced an uphill battle against Josh Allen and the Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs versus Tennessee Titans Final Betting Prediction
The trends don’t favor either team. On one hand, after a Monday night contest, the Titans are horrendous against the spread. On the other hand, KC is 4-13 ATS in their last 17.
If we throw trends out, and look closely at each team, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that KC at -5 ½ is wishful thinking. The Chiefs did stop the WFT from scoring in the second half, but the Washington Football Team calls Taylor Heinicke and Antonio Gibson their starting quarterback and starting running back.
The Tennessee Titans call Ryan Tannehill their starting QB and Derrick Henry their starting RB. Henry has dominated. There isn’t a team in the league that can stop the former Alabama juggernaut.
The Chiefs allow 133.2 rushing yards per. Tennessee averages close to 165 rushing yards each game. So even if you believe in KC, the line makes them an underlay. The Chiefs should be no more than a 2-point favorite.
Backing Tennessee against the spread is the best play. If you want to get greedy, take a swing on the Titans moneyline. Kansas City won’t stop Henry and by not stopping Henry, the Titans should keep the ball out of Patrick Mahomes’ hands.
