Why Bet The Kansas City Chiefs To Beat The Patriots

The Kansas City Chiefs have won 23 regular season games during the last two season, including posting a 12-4 record in 2016. Only the New England Patriots have won more games during that span. Last season the Chiefs averaged 24.2 points per game. Rookie QB Patrick Mahomes was shockingly good during the preseason perdestrian QB Alex Smithis the starter.

"That’s not where we’re at — it’s Alex’s job, that’s how we’re doing it," Reid said, via the Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor.

Smith threw 3502 yards last season with 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. With WR Jeremy Maclin is now in Baltimore and KC will lean on multi-talented WR Tyreek Hill. The second-year wideout had 860 all-purpose yards in 2016 with nine touchdowns.

Why Bet The New England Patriots To Beat The Chiefs

If you are worried about the Pats losing WR Julian Edelman for the entire season, don’t be. Nobody does lives by the "Next Man" philosophy better than New England. That should be easy with the Patriots off-season aquisition of Brandin Cooks who is Brady’s most talented WR since Randy Moss and everyone remembers what happened that season.

“We feel badly for Julian and hope that he will have a speedy and complete recovery,” Coach Bill Belichick said in a conference call. “But yeah, the team will have to move on and we’ll have to compete in this season without him. It’s unfortunate. But that’s the way it is. So we’ll have to figure that out.”

QB Tom Brady will enter the season at 40-years old while on the hunt for his 6th ring. Brady was nearly perfect last season, throwing 3554 yards, 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions in 12 games. That was after he missed 2 games for his DeflateGate suspension.

Brady may have lost Edelman but gets back powerhouse TE Rob Gronkowski. Gronk missed the second half of the season with a knee injury. Expect WRs Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola to see more balls.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:

  • Chiefs are 6-0 ATS in their last six road games.
  • Chiefs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.
  • Patriots are 18-7-2 ATS in their last 27 vs. AFC.
  • Patriots are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games as a favorite.

Chiefs vs. Patriots Week 1 Betting Analysis

The Chiefs have never won at Gillette Stadium, and they haven’t beaten the Patriots in Foxborough in five tries dating back to their last win in 1998.

It was against the Chiefs in the 2008 opener that Brady was lost for the season with a knee injury.

Take the Patriots to cover the spread.

Oregon State Vs USC Odds & Betting Tips

What Is The Stanford Vs USC Week 2 Line?

Heading in to Week 2 the question is can No. 6 USC avoid an upset at home against No. 14 Stanford in Week 2 Pac-12 pairing?

The fourth-ranked USC Trojans may have won their Week 1 regular season opener against a dangerous team, but they were left with more questions than answers after largely struggling in their opener.

On the flip side of the coin, the 14th-ranked Stanford Cardinal looked mostly fantastic in winning their opener in style! Now, the question begs to be asked, can the fourth-ranked Trojans avoid the home upset against No. 14 Stanford in their Week 2 Pac-12 Pairing?

This week’s college football betting line favors USC by 6.5-points to beat Stanford. The Cardinal visit the Trojans on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 8:30 PM ET, live from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California with this contest airing on FOX.

Why Bet the Stanford Cardinal Line At +6.5

Stanford overpowered the Rice Owls 62-7 on Sunday as running back Bryce Love took center stage after replacing the beloved Christian McCaffrey by rushing for 180 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries to lead No. 14 Stanford to victory as huge 31-point favorites in the Sydney College Football Cup.

"Bryce is going to be our lead dog," Stanford coach David Shaw said. "But it’s nice to know we’ve got some guys who can back him up. I’m excited about where Bryce is heading into this season. We don’t want to wear Bryce out in any one game, so those guys have got to come out and make plays like they did today."

Quarterback Keller Chryst completed 14 of 24 passes for 253 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the win while Shaw apparently found another legitimate playmaker in redshirt freshman running back Cameron Scarlett who rushed for 68 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries while adding a thrilling 56-yard reception as well.

Why Bet the USC Trojans Line At -6.5

The Western Michigan Broncos gave the USC Trojans all they could hand as they started the fourth quarter tied at 21. Unfortunately, the Broncos couldn’t withstand a furious USC rally that resulted in a 49-31 Week 1 win in the regular season opener for both schools.

While the Trojans passing attacked struggled, running back Ronald Jones II put his teammates on his back to the tune of a fantastic 159 yards and three touchdowns, including a fourth quarter score that put his team ahead for good. USC also got their own ‘revelation performance’ as freshman running back Stephen Carr, rushed for 69 yards and two exciting touchdowns on just seven carries.

“Down the stretch they really won us the football game,” Trojans head coach Clay Helton said.

Heisman trophy-favorite, USC quarterback Sam Darnold, completed 23 of 33 passes for 289 yards, but failed to toss a touchdown pass for the first time during the Trojans’ current 10-game winning streak and threw a pair of costly interceptions against the Broncos.

"It’s just stuff that we have to go through," said Darnold, who "You’re going to have little mistakes. You’re going to have setbacks, but we have to learn from them and get better."

Stanford Vs USC Week 2 Betting Analysis

I’m going to get right to the point by saying I see no reason why Stanford can’t and won’t cover the spread against a USC team they match up very well against and one that is clearly a bit flawed at this early juncture of the 2017 season. Stanford quarterback Keller Chryst is very good even if I feel like he’s ‘flying under the radar’ this season. I believe Chryst, the clearly gifted Bryce Love – and David Shaw’s defensive genius – could potentially carry Stanford to unexpected heights this season.

The Cardinal have gone 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in the month of September, 21-10 ATS in their last 31 games overall and a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. While it’s true the Trojans have gone 5-0 ATS mark in their last 5 conference games, USC is also just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings against Stanford while the road team in this Pac-12 rivalry has gone 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings. Stanford covers the spread – and they could do it by winning outright!

Pick: Stanford +6.5 Points

Kelly Bryant and the third-ranked Clemson Tigers will host Jarrett Stidham and the 13th-ranked Auburn Tigers in an intriguing Week 2 matchup pitting one SEC championship hopeful against the ACC and defending national champions.

With both teams picking up victories and looking to keep their CFP playoff and national championship hopes alive, let’s find out which one of these teams is offering the best value. The Week 2 NCAA football spread favors Clemson by 6.5-points to beat Auburn.

Why Bet the Auburn Tigers Spread +6.5

No. 13 Auburn laid an emphatic 41-7 smackdown on Georgia Southern in their regular season opener on Saturday. Unfortunately, the Tigers narrowly failed to cover the NFL betting line by a half-point as a huge 34.5-point home favorite.

The Tigers looked good offensively as Baylor transfer quarterback Jarrett Stidham made his debut by completing 14 of 24 passes for an efficient 185 yards with two touchdowns, one rushing score and one interception. Despite not having their top wide receiver and No. 1 running back, in Kyle Davis and Kamryn Pettway, Auburn managed to get the job done.

"I was thrilled to be back out there," Stidham said. "I’ve got to get a lot better personally and as an offense collectively."

The Tigers got an identical 136 rushing yards and one touchdown apiece from running backs Kam Martin and Kerryon Johnson. Auburn’s defense was active all game and limited Georgia Southern to just 78 yards of total yards.

"Our defense was unbelievable," Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn said. "They were outstanding. That triple option scares you to death."

Why Bet the Clemson Tigers Spread -6.5

Clemson pounded Kent State on Saturday, 56-3 to cover the college football betting line as a whopping 38-point home favorite. More importantly, new starting quarterback Kelly Bryant had a solid debut after replacing the now, iconic former championship-winning star quarterback Deshaun Watson. Bryant completed an efficient 16 of 22 passes for 236 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing for an additional 77 yards and another touchdown to lead Clemson to the big win in their opener. Defensively, the Tigers held the Golden Flashes to just 120 yards of total offense.

"That’s what I was hoping to see," coach Dabo Swinney said about his new starter. "That’s what I have seen in practice for a while."

Bryant played one series in the second half before departing after leading the Tigers on a 89-yard touchdown drive that put the Tigers up 35-3.

"I wasn’t surprised. I knew the type of player I was," said Bryant, who was so loose he made sure he put an official’s hat back on his head after accidentally knocking it off.

Auburn Tigers Vs Clemson Tigers Week 2 Betting Analysis

I like what I saw out of Clemson’s Kelly Bryant on Saturday, but I also like what I saw out of Auburn signal-caller Jarrett Stidham and I believe this contest could come down to the team that plays better defense. While Clemson has gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games, Auburn has posted a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games while also going 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and a robust 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

I think this Week 2 matchup looks like a field goal finish waiting to happen as Clemson narrowly survives, but Auburn covers. Over/Under Total bettors should know that the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between Clemson and Auburn.

Pick: Auburn Tigers +6.5 Points
