Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Rams are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Chiefs. The total, meanwhile, sits at 63 points. As of this writing, 64% of the public betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the point spread.

Kansas City Chiefs

Sammy Watkins (foot) is questionable for Week 11 against the Rams. Watkins is trending toward missing another game after not practicing the last two days. Coach Andy Reid said Watkins is only dealing with soreness, but it would be a surprise if Kansas City pushed him before their Week 12 bye. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce would see an uptick in targets it Watkins, with Chris Conley starting opposite Hill in two wide sets.

Los Angeles Rams

Jared Goff completed 28-of-39 passes for 318 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 36-31, Week 10 win over the Seahawks. Goff missed a few easy throws but otherwise guided the Rams to a huge home victory. The Rams can now clinch the NFC West as early as next week. The big news, however, is Cooper Kupp's knee injury. Were Kupp to be lost for the season, it would be the biggest test the Rams have faced during the Sean McVay era. Josh Reynolds is the next man up in three-receiver sets. Even if Kupp is absent, Goff will be locked and loaded as a top-five QB1 for next Monday's guaranteed shootout with the Rams. It has game of the year potential.

NFL Betting Trends

Kansas City

The over is 4-1 in the Chiefs’ last five road games versus a team with a winning home record.

Los Angeles

The under is 5-0 in the Rams’ last five games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

Prediction

If you’re playing this total, you’re playing the over. While the number is incredibly high, it makes zero sense to play the under in a matchup of two of the best offenses in the league. The Rams are averaging 33.5 points per game, third in the NFL, and are allowing 23.1 points per game but have allowed 31, 45 and 27 points in their last three games. As for the Chiefs, they’re averaging 35.3 points per game and have allowed 21, 43, 23, 37 and 28 points in their five road games this season. Bet the under at your own risk.
