Broncos vs. Chiefs Spread

The Broncos vs. Chiefs spread opened with Kansas City as the 7-point favorite but the betting public quickly forced the line all the way up to -10 at a handful of online sportsbooks.   The majority of betting sites offered a line of -9 or -9.5.  Action on the spread was now even.  There was an unusually strong lean on Denver to win with the money line at 70 percent and a payout of $35 on every $10 bet should they win outright.  48.5 was the total with nearly 70 percent backing the OVER in this game.

The 3-8 Broncos fell to the Rams last week at home.  Sam Bradford proved too much for Denver, throwing for 308 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions.

The Chiefs, now 7-4, managed to take care of business on the road against Seattle. Dwayne Bowe had three touchdown catches Sunday.  Matt Cassel tied his career high with four touchdown passes. 

Kansas City continues to be a surprise team to watch leading up to the Playoffs as they try to hold off the surging San Diego Chargers.  The Chiefs had 50/1 odds of winning the 2011 Super Bowl at SBG Global.

 

Denver is 5-2 against Kansas City in their last 7 games of this series, however, the two teams have split Against The Spread in their last 4.

The Broncos are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 vs. AFC West.

The Broncos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss.

The Broncos are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.  The Chiefs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.  That said, Kansas City is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games as a favorite and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 as a home favorite.

Denver is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall.  The Chiefs are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall.  (edge: Chiefs)

The Broncos are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

The Chiefs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
