Why bet on the Chiefs to beat the Patriots

If you think the Chiefs’ 5-0 start is a fluke or just luck then you haven’t been paying attention. The Chiefs have road wins over preseason AFC crown hopefuls Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Charges plus the hard to beat at home Denver Broncos. Last week the Chiefs outgunned the top defensive team in the league, the Jags, by a 30-14 score. KC has won five straight and covered the betting spread in nine consecutive games.

Sophomore QB Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL’s fifth-ranked offense and second-best scoring unit. The Chiefs’ offense is peppered with the league’s top young talent including wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, and Chris Conley, tight end Travis Kelce and running back Kareem Hunt.

Plus in his five years in KC, Reid has won two out of three matchups against Belichick and the Patriots including the 2017 season opener where the Chiefs walloped the Pats 42-27.

Why bet on the Patriots to beat the Chiefs

Bill Belichick is out for payback after losing to the Chiefs in the opener last year. To do so, he will have to slow down the Chiefs’ explosive offensive unit with the strong-armed Mahomes, whose 14 touchdown passes rank first in the league.

It would be a daunting task for any other coach, but Belichick has a long list of top opposing players he has neutralized. He will have a plan to slow down Mahomes. But will his 16th-ranked total defense (19th vs. the pass and 12th vs. the run) be able to execute?

If the Pats defense can’t slow down Showtime Mahomes, then it will be up to Tom Brady to win the game. He has a full complement of weapons that include Gronk, Edelman, and Josh Gordon. Brady has 12 touchdown passes with six interceptions for the Patriots, who rank tied for ninth in scoring at 26.6 points per contest.

Chiefs vs. Patriots NFL Pick

Chiefs defense isn’t playing well despite last week’s victory of a Fournette-less Jaguars. Moreover, Justin Houston is missing practice and might not play. Belichick and the Patriots had a long week to prepare after beating the Dolphins at home on a Week 5 Thursday Night Football game.

Bet the Pats -3 at home.

Spread & ATS Pick Seahawks vs Raiders at Wembley Stadium

Spread & ATS Pick Seahawks vs Raiders at Wembley

The Seattle Seahawks are playing their first game in London while the Raiders are making their second trip to London and the fourth trip for an international game.

The Week 6 NFL spread favors the Seahawks by 2.5-points. If you are betting the moneyline, Seattle pays $100 on a $135 bet and a win by Oakland pays $115 on a $100 wager.

This is the fifth meeting between the former AFC West rivals since Seattle moved to the NFC in 2002. Each team has won two and lost two meetings since then. The most recent head-to-head matchup in 2014 was a 30-24 Seattle victory.

Why bet on the Seahawks ATS over the Raiders

At 2-3 some believe that the Seahawks have overachieved. But two straight wins, followed by a narrow 33-31 loss to the dominant Rams has turned people’s heads.

Seattle has yet to play a game decided by more than nine points. Combine that with the 2.5-point betting spread and everything points this being a close game.

Why bet on the Raiders ATS over the Seahawks

The Raiders sit at 1-4. The offense can rack the yards at 411.2 (7th most in the league) but sits 29th in points scored at 149. That is mostly due to nine turnovers through five weeks, one of the highest rates in the league. Five of QB Derek Carr’s eight interceptions have occurred on first downs.

So what should head-coach Jon Gruden’s game plan be?

  1. Handoff to Marshawn Lynch
  2. Handoff to Beastmode
  3. Handoff to #24
  4. Repeat.

The former Seahawk running back is ninth in the NFL with 331 yards rushing so far this season. Lynch is on pace to rush for 1,059 yards with an average of 4.3 yards per carry.

ATS Pick Seahawks vs Raiders at Wembley Stadium

The Raiders own the 30th-ranked defense but face a Seahawks team that has the 27th-ranked offense. Can Oaklands turnover happy 7th-ranked offense be the difference maker?

The Legion of Boom is no more. Beastmode runs in Raider black and silver. I am betting on Oakland to cover the 2.5-point spread as underdogs.
