Why Kansas City Chiefs are a good bet at -16.5?

Are the Chiefs a safe bet for NFL Week 10?

Kansas City’s been a monster covering team this season. The Chiefs are a blistering 8-1 straight up and against the spread. KC doesn’t rely on it’s defense. Instead, it piles up points and dares opponents to keep pace.

The Chiefs average 36.3 points per game. That ranks them first in the NFL in points scored. Kansas City’s offense is balanced, close to 118 yards comes via the rush on average and close to 316 yards comes via the pass.

Arizona will have an impossible time keeping this one close because Mahomes and the KC offense will overwhelm the Cardinals.

Cardinals vs Chiefs Final NFL Betting Analysis

The trends definitely favor the Chiefs, but the last time an NFL team showed up as a close to +17 dog, that team not only covered the spread, but it also beat it’s opponent straight up. Arizona’s different than the Buffalo Bills, the team that beat the Minnesota Vikings as a +17 dog.

The Cardinals’ offense is a mess. It only averages 13.8 points off 233 yards per. But, there are a couple of reasons to believe Arizona keeps this within the spread. First, quarterback Josh Rosen rallied the Cards to an improbable 18-15 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8.

Second, Zona battles the Chiefs after their bye. Both could add up to a fantastic Arizona performance, one that shouldn’t lead to a win straight up, but that could lead to a win against the spread.
