The Green Bay Packers will have an excellent opportunity to win a fourth straight game against the current NFL odds at online Sportsbooks in the Week 8 edition of Sunday Night Football on NBC when they invade Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Patrick Mahomes-less Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid’s squad survived in Denver without the services of the reigning MVP last week due to the Broncos laughable offense; they won’t be afforded that same type of comfort this time around with Aaron Rodgers coming off one of the best games of his career.

Green Bay vs. Kansas City Analysis
Linemakers firmly expect the Packers to continue rolling on Sunday night after opening Matt LaFleur’s squad up 4.5-point favorites to extend their win streak. The betting markets beg to differ. Green Bay was initially bet up to a 5-point favorite but can now be had at -4 with only 24 percent of the bet count and 29 percent of the money of the belief the Packers live up to their lofty expectations in hostile territory. In other words, most NFL bettors are all over the Chiefs as home underdogs. The game total hit 48 briefly but is back down to 47.5 with 69 percent of the bets and 65 percent of the money riding the under.
Green Bay Packers Odds
The Packers went into last week’s home tilt with a myriad of offensive injuries. Though Davante Adams was forced to miss yet another game due to his bout with turf toe, it hardly mattered in the grand scheme of things after Rodgers went HAM and tore the Raiders secondary up to the tune of 400+ passing yards and 5 TDs. The performances amounted to becoming the easiest player prop cashes of the year! Green Bay enters this tilt riding high winners of three straight to go along with 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS records as the top dog in the NFC North.
Kansas City Chiefs Odds
If not for playing in one of the weaker divisions in the game, it would most definitely be panic time in Kansas City with the Chiefs returning home to Arrowhead looking to snap a two-game losing streak in front of the hometown faithful. Being forced to do it without the services of Patrick Mahomes isn’t attractive either. That said, Matt Moore looked capable of leading the offense in his relief role last week in Denver, and you know Andy Reid and company will have coached him up in a big way leading up to Sunday night.
The road team has come out on top in five of the last nine confrontations dating back to 1987 with the over cashing in five of those matchups. The Packers have already logged a pair of wins and covers against the AFC West this season after defeating the Denver Broncos 27-16 and Oakland Raiders 42-24; they covered both games in a pair of high scorers. KC has been dogged at home twice under Andy Reid and split both occasions defeating the Patriots and falling to the Broncos; the over cashed in both occurrences.
Tonight’s meeting between these squads marks the first since 2015 when Green Bay scored the 38-28 home win and cover as 5.5-point Lambeau Field favorites. The combined 66 points raced past the 47.5-point closing total. Rodgers ended up having another exceptional outing in that matchup throwing for 333 yards and 5 TD without an interception thrown. This will be his second overall appearance in Arrowhead Stadium since 2011 when the Kyle Orton led Chiefs scored an ugly and shocking 19-14 win and cover as 11.5-point underdogs.
