Kansas City Chiefs versus Washington Football Team Final Betting Prediction
The spread doesn’t make sense. Most believe Kansas City is the better team, but after watching the debacle against Buffalo, it’s hard to say that’s the case.
Patrick Mahomes doesn’t play defense and the Chiefs’ defense is the worst unit in the NFL, which is why any time Mahomes throws an interception or makes a bad play, KC suffers. So far, Mahomes has accounted for 6-of-11 Kansas City turnovers.
By contrast, Washington starting quarterback Tyler Heinicke has thrown just 5 picks. Heinicke and the WFT should score at will, which means there’s a chance KC loses this on the moneyline. Taking the points on D.C. is a no-brainer.
