Kansas City Chiefs Favorites vs. Denver Broncos for Betting at Week 8

Bet on the Denver BroncosOnline sports betting USA establishments favor the Kansas City Chiefs by 9.5 points over the Denver Broncos. The Broncos snapped a four-game losing streak in a 45-10 routing of the Arizona Cardinals. You know the expression, “enjoy while it lasts”? Since that win took place on Thursday before last, Denver has had extra time to enjoy it. But it’s now time to come crashing back down to Earth. Like early 80s Michael Jackson, the Broncos wanna be startin’ somethin’. To their credit, the Broncos are the only team that has held the Chiefs to fewer than 30 points. Though they still lost 27-23 in Week 4. “The Chiefs had just 13 points through three quarters,” this dude writes about that game.  You see the problem with that statement, right? Thirteen points through three quarters means Kansas City scored more than half their points in the fourth quarter alone.

Betting Denver Broncos

It’s easier to come up with reasons for not betting Denver. Especially if we go by online sports betting USA trends. The Broncos are 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS in their last six divisional games. Also, they are 0-6 SU and ATS in their last six meetings with the Chiefs.

Betting Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have covered the online sports betting USA spread in all seven regular season games, including their loss to the Pats. Coincidentally, the Patriots (2007) and the Titans (2008) are the only two other teams to start 7-0 ATS since 2003.  Additionally, Kansas City has won their last eight home divisional games.

Our Pick: The Broncos may have played better D against the Chiefs than any other team so far. But do you think Andy Reid gives a flying f-bomb about that? A good defense won’t help you beat Kansas City. Hell, pretty much every other team in the league has a better defense than the Chiefs. What you need is a better offense, and heretofore only the Patriots have managed that. It takes a Tom Brady to go toe to toe with Pat “My Arm is Bigger than Yours” Mahomes. And Case Keenum is no Tom Brady. This game will be a repeat of Kansas City’s win over the Bengals last Sunday. Sure, Cinci entered that game with a slightly better defense. And a fat lot of good it did them. This Sunday’s 10-point spread set by the best online sportsbooks is still not too steep to snap the Chiefs’ ATS streak.
