New Orleans At Kansas City NFL Winning Predictions

Written by on October 18, 2016

After 6 weeks of the NFL season, all of the divisions are about as tightly contested as we expected, but the next few weeks will likely see things start to change. There are a few teams that are on the brink of pulling away, while there are others who could well see their season start so slip away with another couple of losses. The New Orleans Saints are right on the edge at the moment, but are clinging to life after winning two straight games to get their record to 2-3. With the NFC South not going exactly as expected, that record has them still knocking on the door. This weekend will see the Saints head into Arrowhead to face a Kansas City Chiefs team that is right in the thick of things in a very competitive AFC West division. The Chiefs are at 3-2, and are looking to chase down the slumping Denver Broncos and the revitalized Oakland Raiders, both of whom are sitting with 4-2 records. The Chiefs come into this one as a 7-point betting odds favorite.

Why bet on the New Orleans Saints

You have to give credit to the New Orleans Saints for reviving their season after it looked dead and buried with an 0-3 start. They have put together back to back wins, with both victories coming in games where they went in as the underdog. If the Saints are to keep on winning, they are once again going to have to rely on the arm of Drew Brees. New Orleans has no running game to speak of, which may explain why Brees is generally throwing the football 45-50 times per game and also explains why he has passed the 400-yard passing mark twice already this season. They will need to be careful against a Chiefs team that forces a lot of turnovers.

Why bet on the Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are 3-2 and very much in the race to win the AFC West, but they are a team struggling to be consistent. They have yet to string together back to back wins this season, but they have a legitimate shot to finally do so this weekend. The Chiefs have always been tough to beat in their own building, and this season is no different, as they are already 2-0 at Arrowhead. They are coming off a big 23-10 road win versus the Oakland Raiders, here Alex Smith was about as efficient as it gets, going 19-23 for 223 yards. A similar performance may be enough to get the job done versus the Saints.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

As good as the Saints have been in the last couple of weeks, I have a hard time believing that they can go into KC and get the win. The Chiefs are usually money at home, and I don’t see this week being any different. I like the Chiefs to win and cover.
