According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Patriots are favored at home over the Chiefs in this game, as they are getting odds of -5 points. The over/under total for the game has been set at 43 points. These two meet today at 4:35PM ET on CBS.

The Patriots (12-4, 7-7-2 ATS) host the surging Chiefs (12-5, 9-8 ATS), who are on an 11-game win streak. New England lost four of its last six games to end the regular season and put them in the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Brady had a pretty solid season, throwing for 4,770 yards and 36 touchdowns with just seven interceptions, but he is coming off a 12 of 21 performance against the Dolphins when he threw for only 134 yards and no touchdowns.

For today’s playoff game, Brady has been given an over/under of 286.5 passing yards and 2 touchdown passes. The Chiefs have the ninth-ranked passing defense in the NFL this season, allowing just 231.1 yards per game. KC hasn’t given up 287 yards to a QB in its last five games. One positive for Brady is that both Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman are probable to play. Edelman has been out for weeks with a foot injury and has been Brady’s top receiving target this season outside of Rob Gronkowski. Brady has thrown for at least 287 yards in nine games this season and has had multiple TD passes in 13 games.
