Lions vs. Chiefs Prediction
The Chiefs will look to win back-to-back games when they take on the Lions at 9:30AM ET in London today.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Chiefs are 3.5-point favorites versus the Lions after opening as a 6-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 44.5 points after opening at 45.5.
Detroit enters play with a 1-6 record straight up and a 1-6 mark against the spread, while Kansas City is 2-5 overall and 2-5 at the betting window.
The Lions are among the worst teams in the NFL this season but they shouldn't be getting 5.5 points versus a Chiefs squad that has just one more victory on the year. Kansas City benefited from playing a Landry Jones-led Pittsburgh team last Sunday at home and while the defense played lights out, the offense couldn't get much going with star running back Jamaal Charles out for the season. The Chiefs are still just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall and will have trouble covering the number.
