What’s the latest Chiefs betting form to face the Rams?
With the Patriots latest struggles, it’s easy to name the Chiefs as the best team in the AFC. Think about this, if not for a late field goal in New England, this team would have gotten to this point with an undefeated record. The Chiefs are the most entertaining team in the NFL and is not even close. Their offense is fun to watch and is nearly unstoppable. The credit goes to the Cardinals defense. Last week it was only the second time in the season where Kansas City scored fewer than 30 points in a game. Kansas City’s 26-14 win over the Cardinals was their fourth straight since losing to the Patriots. The Chiefs failed to cover the spread as a 16-point favorite at home.
Against the Rams, it will be the fourth time this season they are underdogs. They cover the spread in the previous three times. They won outright in their visits against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. And against New England, they covered by losing by three points as a 3.5-point dog. Getting the Chiefs with the points is invariably a good bet because they are always in games. Even if they are losing by a significant margin, they have the type of offense to pull a comeback late in the game. And if they are up on the scoreboard, trying to catch them becomes frustrating because their offense gives opponents minimal margin for mistakes.
The Chiefs average 35.3 points per game this season, which is the second-best in the NFL, only behind the New Orleans Saints. If I their offensive roster against any offense in the league, I’m not sure I would pick any other team than Kansas City. QB Patrick Mahomes is the front-runner to win the MVP award entering the NFL week 11. Mahomes already is the quarterback in Chiefs history with the most touchdown passes in one season. He has thrown for 31 TDs in 2018, and there still are six games left in the calendar. Mahomes’ name showed up in the injury list despite practicing fully on Thursday. He’s dealing with a foot injury, but there is no doubt he will play on Monday Night. I’m sure Pat is salivating knowing the Rams defense is 23rd in total defense.
What’s the latest Rams betting form to face the Chiefs?
The pressure to win this game is on the Rams side. Two weeks ago they lost a big one against New Orleans and last week they went the distance to beat the Seahawks at home. Another loss might drop them too far behind the Saints in the race for the NFC top position. They already lost the head-to-head battle; in case of a tied record, the nod will go to New Orleans. The Rams haven’t been the best bet available this season, even with the great offense they have on their side. Last week they failed to cover as 9.5-point favorites at home against Seattle. It was the fifth time in the last six games they didn’t cover, and third straight. But who’s counting?
LA’s offense is good enough to compete against any team in the NFL, but the defense not so much. The Rams average 33.5 points per game, due to a great Todd Gurley, a finest Jared Goff and the scheming of the coach Sean McVay. But even with those three factors at a high level, I still get the feeling the Rams lack a few top playmakers. Other than WR Brandin Cook they don’t have a great player outside the numbers. And now they have to deal with WR Cooper Kupp being for out for the rest of the season. It all starts with Gurley and his MVP pace.
It’s hard for to win the Most Valuable Players award because he’s a running back, but he indeed is the masterpiece in this unit. Gurley leads the NFL with 988 rushing yards in ten games; that’s 157 yards more than the second on the list. He also leads the league with 13 rushing touchdowns. The problem on betting the Rams is their defense. Despite adding DT Ndamukong Suh, and CB Marcus Peters in the offseason, both have had disappointing seasons. CB Aqib Talib is still injured, and OLB Dante Fowler is too undisciplined to count on him.
The play for the MNF game between Chiefs and Rams?
When the Chiefs scored 42 points in Pittsburgh while covering as a 4-point dog, I made a deal with myself. Every time I would get points with Kansas City I immediately jump on them. It has paid off since them, and I’m not stopping now. Despite the numbers are similar, Kansas City’s offense has so much talent than the Rams. Los Angeles will realize this week how much their scheme will miss Cooper Kupp from now on. I’m not only taking the Chiefs with the points, I think the visitors will win outright. Take Kansas City +3.
