Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting

The last two NFL MVP’s will meet in the most anticipated game of the regular season. This might be the only time that Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are underdogs all year. Kansas City is likely to be favored by more than a touchdown per the NFL betting odds in most of the rest of their games, but not against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore is a little more than a field goal favorite after looking great to start the season, and this Monday Night Football extravaganza will be full of fireworks.

Kansas City Chiefs Week 3 Matchup

Baltimore and Kansas City were the two Super Bowl favorites by the NFL futures odds at the start of the season. The Ravens went 14-2 last year and have now won 14 straight regular season games, while the Chiefs are the reigning Super Bowl champions.

All eyes will be on Mahomes and Jackson in this one. Mahomes revolutionized the quarterback position with his 50-touchdown season in 2018, while Jackson experienced an even bigger breakthrough last year, proving that mobile quarterbacks can thrive at the next level.

It’s never easy to stop Jackson, but the Chiefs may have particularly difficulty in that area. Kansas City’s run defense has not been sharp through the first two weeks of the season. They have allowed 4.6 YPC, but they have been even worse in pass defense without top cornerback Bashaud Breeland. The Chiefs are surrendering 8.3 YPA, and they made Herbert look like an All-Pro last week.

The Ravens balance the run and pass very well. They have the fourth-best offense in terms of yards per play, and they average 5.1 YPC and 8.9 YPA. This run game is deadly with Jackson’s incredible speed, and they have three running backs that can gash you up the middle. If you gear up to defend the run, Jackson can beat you by finding Marquise Brown or Mark Andrews downfield.

Mahomes has been solid this year. He has only been sacked twice behind this offensive line, and he has thrown five touchdowns without an interception. We haven’t seen the superstar variety of him yet in 2020, but we should see it on Monday night. Clyde Edwards-Helaire probably won’t have much success against Baltimore’s run defense, so Mahomes will likely drop back at least 40 times.

Kansas City Chiefs Week 2 Recap

The Chiefs were nearly upset on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. Kansas City was a nine-point favorite in the game, but the Chiefs had to overcome a 17-6 deficit in the second half to pick up a 23-20 victory in overtime.

Justin Herbert was superb for the Chargers in his first NFL action. Herbert was a surprise start after Tyrod Taylor had an adverse reaction to a pregame injection, and he nearly led the Chargers to a win. He completed 22 of 33 passes for 311 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The Chargers had plenty of success on the ground against the Chiefs too. They ran the ball 44 times for 183 yards (4.2 YPC), grinding out tough yards as none of the carries was for longer than 13 yards.

However, it wasn’t enough to beat Mahomes. The league’s best quarterback came through once again with the pressure on, throwing for over 300 yards while not turning the ball over once on the afternoon. He wasn’t the hero for the Chiefs though, as that honor belonged to Harrison Butker.

Butker missed an extra point, but he made all three of his field goal attempts, including the game winner in overtime. He knocked home a 58-yarder in the third quarter, yet he was even better with the game on the line. Butker’s successful kicks from 53 yards and 58 yards with two minutes left in overtime went through the uprights but were called back due to a penalty and a timeout. His leg stayed true on the money kick though, crushing another 58-yard attempt that had plenty of room to spare.
