Kansas City is a surprising 1-6 ATS in its last seven games at home, while Tennessee is 4-1 in its last five games on the road. Back in Week 5, Kansas City closed as 9.5-point underdogs in its NFL betting contest with the Carolina Panthers in Carolina, with the ‘total’ slated at 38.5.
The Chiefs gained only 35 yards rushing on 17 carries for the entire game, while their defense did nothing to compensate for their lack of offense. Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams scored three touchdowns in the first half.
Chiefs quarterback Damon Huard threw two interceptions and wasn’t able to generate any scoring for the Chiefs offense. Kansas City only held the ball for 21:06 for the game, while Carolina had possession for 38:54, and used that time to put up 34 points.
Carolina beat Kansas City 34-0 to earn its first shutout of the 2008 NFL season, but it was not enough to go over the closing football betting line. Also in Week 5, Tennessee was a one-point road favorite against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 33.5.
Baltimore kicked a field goal in the first quarter and Tennessee matched it in the second quarter to tie the game up at the break (3-3). Titans quarterback Kerry Collins and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco both threw two interceptions on the day, which was just another deterrent from scoring points.
Baltimore held the Titans to just 47 yards rushing for the entire game. The Tennessee Titans won this game by a final score of 13-10, pleasing Titans fans as well as those NFL bettors who picked Tennessee to cover the NFL odds, straight up or laying the point.
The Tennessee Titans are eight-point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday, with the ‘total” hovering between 35 and 35.5. For all the football spread, total, and money line wagering you want, login to Sports-Gambling.com.
