Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-47 passes for 302 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 2 overtime win over the Chargers. It was a struggle all game long, but MVPs find ways to win ugly. The Chargers zone defense and defensive end pressure limited Mahomes' big plays. He had to grind things out underneath in the second half and in overtime, only adding one deep TD conversion to Tyreek Hill. Mahomes will have bigger games ahead against far easier defenses, but even today, the Super Bowl MVP threw for 300 yards. The game of the year awaits Mahomes. Next Monday night, the Chiefs will play Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. He'll be a top-two fantasy quarterback once again.
Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Lamar Jackson completed 18-of-24 passes for 201 yards and one score, rushing 16 times for 54 yards in Baltimore's 33-16 Week 3 cakewalk over the Texans. It was smooth sailing for the Ravens, whose front-seven reached Deshaun Watson four times in the backfield as the team's offense cruised to an easy win behind 37 carries for 230 rushing yards (6.2 YPA). Houston's secondary limited Mark Andrews to a single catch but it was Marquise Brown (5/42) who consistently settled in holes throughout the defense to keep moving the chains. Jackson has been terrific when asked to dropback, completing 38-of-49 passes (77.5%) for 476 yards and four touchdowns through two games, but the Ravens' weekly siege on opponents has capped his upside (so far). Expect that to change in next week's primetime showdown against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
Monday Night Football Betting Prediction
The under is 4-0 in the Chiefs’ last four road games, is 4-1 I their last five games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game and is 35-16 in their last 51 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous contest. On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Ravens’ last five games overall, is 4-1 in their last five conference games and is 4-0 in their last four games when they’re listed as a favorite.
