Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET. Denver has scored an average of 38 points per game in 2008, the most in the NFL. The ‘over’ is 8-1 in the Broncos’ L/9 games vs. AFC West opponents and 6-1 ATS the L/7 times these two teams have met at Arrowhead.
Denver hosted the New Orleans Saints last Sunday at Invesco Field; the Broncos were 5.5-point favorites over the Saints, with the ‘total’ standing large at 51.5. Denver won the game, 34-32, and though they didn’t cover the NFL betting line, the ‘total’ went way over.
NFL betting fans who had the brass to hammer the over in this one were handsomely rewarded with a carefree victory. They knew that the Broncos, the highest scoring team in the league at home vs. a Saints team (26.7 per game, #8 in NFL) would result in a high scoring football betting affair, and both teams are among the lowest rated defenses in the league.
It didn’t take a brain surgeon to realize stops would be few and far between. The Kansas City Chiefs were in Georgia to take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 NFL action. Kansas City closed as 6.5-point road underdogs, according to NFL odds, with the ‘total’ listed at 37.
The Chiefs were down 24-0 in the second quarter before they put their first points on the board, a touchdown pass from 2nd year QB Tyler Thigpen to WR Dwayne Bowe. Things are in a state of disarray in Kansas City. The lack of consistency at the quarterback position has resulted in virtually no offensive production for the Chiefs.
The Falcons won this contest by a final score of 38-14, no doubt pleasing those football betting followers that backed Atlanta laying the points. The Denver Broncos are a 9.5-point favorite on the road vs. the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday; the ’total’ in this NFL betting showdown is listed at 46.5.
