On Sunday afternoon, the defending AFC champion New England Patriots (16-0 in 2007) play host to the Kansas City Chiefs (4-12 in 2007). Sports bettors can view this AFC clash regionally on CBS. Kickoff from Gillette Stadium is set for 1:00 PM. The Chiefs were amongst the biggest disappointments in the NFL in 2007, going just 4-12 SU and 6-9-1 ATS.
Surprisingly, HC Herm Edwards kept his job, but he’ll inevitably be on the hot seat if Kansas City isn’t competitive again this year. The Chiefs offense was atrocious last year, only averaging 14.1 PPG to rank dead last in the NFL. They currently own the NFL’s longest losing streak at nine games.
Don’t let those numbers fool you though! NFL betting who wagered on Kansas City in their road games found plenty of success in ’07 as it churned out a 6-2 ATS mark. When they were underdogs of at least ten-points, the Chiefs beat the football betting line all three times, including a 30-16 upset in San Diego as 12-point underdogs.
The 2007 New England Patriots were one step away from becoming known as the “Perfect Patriots”, but the New York Giants spoiled the party by knocking them off by a 17-14 final count in the Super Bowl. Still, New England’s 2007 team has to be considered amongst the best in NFL history, as they obliterated seemingly every offensive record in the books.
QB Tom Brady threw 50 touchdown passes, 26 of which went to Randy Moss. Both marks are NFL records. All of the key components for the Patriots offense are back again this season, and football betting followers who plan on betting on New England had better plan on laying some big numbers on the NFL betting line once again this year.
The Pats were double-digit favorites 14 times including the playoffs in ’07, with the most lopsided spread being 24-points against Philadelphia. The Pats are laying 16.5-points in this match-up, with the ‘total’ now sitting at 46.
