Kansas City is a 4-point road favorite in Denver at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. In their last five games against the Broncos, the Chiefs are a perfect 5-0 SU.
Patrick Mahomes passed for 314 yards and three touchdowns in Kansas City’s 38-27 win over the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. With these three touchdown passes, Mahomes brought his season total to 13, breaking Peyton Manning’s record for the most ever in the first three weeks of an NFL season.
Mahomes has been lights out under center for this Chiefs team that is averaging 39.3 points per game and has shown no signs of being slowed down on offense through its perfect 3-0 SU and ATS start to the season.
The Chiefs have won back-to-back AFC West titles thanks in large part to their play against division rivals. Kansas City is 17-1 SU and 14-4 ATS in its last 18 games against AFC West rivals per the OddsShark NFL Database.
Denver has finished each of the last three seasons with a top four passing defense in the NFL, earning the Broncos’ secondary the nickname “the no fly zone”.
So far in 2018 however, the Broncos rank 20th in the league in passing defense allowing 262.7 passing yards per game. With an offense averaging only 20.3 points per game through the team’s 2-1 SU and 0-2-1 ATS, the defense is likely going to have to get better in a hurry if the Broncos hope to upset the Chiefs at home.
Monday night’s total is set at 54.5 points. The OVER is 4-0 in the last four games between Denver and Kansas City.
The Broncos are just 4-11 SU and 2-12-1 ATS over their last 15 games. Denver has built its team in recent years around being near-perfect on defense and doing just enough on offense to get by. That method may work against weaker teams as it did against Seattle and Oakland, but it will be put to the test against a team of Kansas City’s caliber.
