NFL gambling excitement is high for the Chiefs after their impressive 21-14 football gambling payout as 4-point home dogs in their opener last week against San Diego.
This week the Chiefs will look to prove that it wasn’t a fluke as they travel to Cleveland to face the Browns. Kickoff is at 1:05 PM Eastern Time and Sports-Gambling opened with a line of Cleveland -2 and an over/under of 38.
The Chiefs received a full team effort in their opening win against the Chargers with the NFL odds as the defense contained one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Kansas City stopped All Pro quarterback Philip Rivers on a 4th and goal from the 4 yard line to preserve the win.
Dexter McCluster had a 94- yard punt return for a touchdown, the longest in Chiefs history. Running back Jamaal Charles added a 56-yard touchdown run in the first half as the Chiefs took an early 21-7 lead. The win gives Kansas City sole possession of first place in the AFC West and is a huge shot in the arm for them going forward.
The Cleveland Browns had a disappointing opener at Tampa Bay as they lost the NFL bet to the Buccaneers 17-14 as 2.5-point dogs with the game staying under the total. After a successful training camp and preseason the result was a letdown for the Browns.
Cleveland came off as mistake, turnover, and penalty prone as well as disorganized in the loss.
It was also a disappointment for quarterback Jake Delhomme, who threw 2 interceptions and looked more like the man that the Carolina Panthers couldn’t wait to get rid of last year than the promising veteran that looked ready for a comeback year in the preseason.
Cleveland has won and covered their last 2 NFL gambling matchups with Kansas City including last year in a 41-34 road win as 2.5-point road dogs. The last 4 meetings between the teams have gone over the total.
Kansas City has gotten the money in 13 out of their last 20 road games including 5 out of their last 6 while Cleveland has paid out in 12 out of their last 20 home games including 4 straight.
