NFL Sunday Night Football Betting
With three wins in their last four games the Green Bay Packers have their sights set on a playoff spot in the NFC. They’ll look to continue their surge against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Week 13 edition of Sunday Night Football. Coming off their 29-22 Thanksgiving Day upset of division rival Detroit, the Packers face another top club from the AFC in the Chiefs, who broke out of an offensive slumber with a 31-17 win over the Raiders on Sunday. Playing on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field and with a few extra days between games, Green Bay is still a 6-point underdog on the opening NFL betting line.
Relying on their defense for most of the season to remain in contention for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Chiefs finally got a boost from the fellas on the other side of the ball. KC outscored the Raiders 31-3 over the final 2½ quarters for just their second win in the last four outings. The Chiefs covered the 9.5-point line and they’ve been one of the most profitable teams in the NFL going 7-4 ATS.

Everyone around the NFL was wondering what happened to the Chiefs’ explosive offense. A team that’s finished among the league leaders in scoring and yards since Patrick Mahomes became the starter in 2018 is having one of its worst seasons offensively. For one week at least the group changed the narrative. In three games prior to the Las Vegas contest the Chiefs averaged fewer than 16 points. In their Week 8 loss to Denver they failed to score a touchdown. The offensive pitfalls led to the club cashing the UNDER in six straight contests.
Even with their offense not putting up big numbers the Chiefs are still winning. They reeled off six straight Ws after opening with a loss and beat Miami in a heavyweight AFC battle a few weeks ago. The key was their defense. They held the Dolphins’ top ranked offense to fewer than 300 yards with Tua Tagovailoa compiling less than 200 yards through the air. The Chiefs held eight of their first 10 opponents to 20 points or less. KC started slowly last week falling behind Vegas 14-0. Once the Chiefs got rolling, though, it was lights out. Mahomes threw for 298 yards and two scores with Isaiah Pacheco adding a pair of rush TDs in a 31-3 surge. We hadn’t seen the offense so smooth since Mahomes threw for 424 yards and four TDs in the Week 7 win over the Chargers. Though they split their last four games the Chiefs enter the week tied with the fewest losses in the AFC.
Letting Aaron Rodgers walk doesn’t look like such a bad move now. Jordan Love was spectacular ripping apart the Lions secondary on Thanksgiving helping Green Bay win two games in a row for the first time this season. In a win over the Chargers two weeks ago Love threw for 322 yards and two TDs, including the game-winning score late in the fourth quarters. On Thanksgiving he was 22 of 32 for 268 yards with three TDs. Love didn’t throw a pick in those games and the Packers didn’t commit a turnover while getting three takeaways against the Lions with a plus-4 turnover margin in that span. Give Love some love but also credit Green Bay’s defense.
Holding the dangerous Lions to 22 points was impressive. In fact it was the most points the Packers allowed in a game since losing to Atlanta 25-24 in Week 2. The Pack ranks among the top 10 against the pass allowing just 205.1 yards per game and they’ve done that with a pass rush that’s generated only 26 sacks. If they can’t get to Mahomes I don’t think Green Bay will have that much success slowing down KC’s attack. KC won the most recent meeting between the clubs, 13-7, in November 2021. They will be tangling in Green Bay for the first time since Green Bay’s 38-28 win in 2015.
