Public Betting Information
As of this writing, over 60% of tickets are currently on Kansas City to cover the spread. The Chiefs are 5-2 straight up and 5-2 against the spread this season, while the Broncos are just 2-3-1 at the betting window and 3-3 overall. Denver is coming off a game in which it was shut out by the Chargers, so it makes sense that public bettors would take the Chiefs tonight.
Key Betting Trends
The road team has covered the spread in six of the last seven meetings between these two teams and the underdog has covered in five of the last six games in this series. The Broncos, meanwhile, are 6-2 at the betting window in their last eight trips to Kansas City.
The Chiefs have issues defensively but the Broncos have massive problems on offense so it’s kind of a wash. The under is 8-1 in Denver’s last nine games coming off a loss, is 7-1 in its last eight games played in October, and is 8-2 in its last 10 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in its previous game. On the other side, the under is 40-18 in the Chiefs’ last 58 home games, is 35-16-1 in their last 52 games following an ATS loss and is 23-9 in their last 32 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
