Minnesota Vikings Vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 9 Betting Picks And Odds
The Kansas City Chiefs want to avoid a fourth straight home loss, but to do so, they need to stop a Minnesota Vikings’ team that has been rolling lately and has no intentions to slow down.
Kansas City Chiefs remains the best team inside the AFC West, but it’s mostly because the rest of the division is not good. Minnesota is fighting for the top spot of the NFC North inside one of the hardest divisions in football.
This NFL Week 9 matchup should have fireworks. Let’s break it down.
What The NFL Week 9 Odds Say About The Vikings At Chiefs Matchup
|Bet On Vikings vs. Chiefs NFL Game At MyBookie.ag|
The Chiefs haven’t named a starter for this game yet. Patrick Mahomes is unlikely to see the field, but he hasn’t been officially ruled out. He was limited in practice this week, dealing with a knee injury.
Neither of the oddsmakers has taken the leap of faith to give us a line without knowing the status of Mahomes.
The Vikings haven’t given much information about the status of WR Adam Thielen, either. He missed the game against Washington last week with a hamstring injury.
The Minnesota Vikings’ Edge Vs. Chiefs
The Minnesota Vikings have a lot going on for themselves entering this game. The Vikings have the third-best running attack in the NFL, led by the best running back in the league, Dalvin Cook. He leads all tailbacks with 823 rushing yards and nine touchdowns this season.
When Cook runs well, he opens the entire playbook for the offense. On Sunday, he should have a lot of room as the Chiefs defense is the third-worst against the run in the NFL.
QB Kirk Cousins Benefit This Season
The player who has benefited the most from Dalvin Cook’s top form this season is QB Kirk Cousins. He has thrown ten touchdowns and just one interception in the last four games.
Last week he didn’t throw a TD or an INT but completed 88.5% of his passes in the win against Washington. The Vikings will go into Kansas City with ten days of rest to face a contender trying to survive with a backup quarterback.
The myth of Arrowhead stadium being a place where not many teams could compete has not lived up to expectations this season. The Chiefs have lost against the Colts, Texans, and Packers at home this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ Edge vs. Vikings
Kansas City knows that without their starting quarterback in the lineup, the way to win this game is by being creative on offense and aggressive on defense.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer mentioned this week the Chiefs defense has been blitzing a lot more over the past three weeks, and they are anticipating something similar on Sunday.
Kansas City was able to sack Packers QB Aaron Rodgers five times last week. The Chiefs showed they would be hard to beat even without Mahomes under center.
QB Matt Moore Amazing Performance
Veteran QB Matt Moore had an excellent game against Green Bay, posting 267 yards and two scores. The most important number is the zero giveaways he had.
Coach Andy Reid will likely get creative on offense to help his team in this game. Last week he designed four plays that gained 25 yards or more. Keep an eye on WR Mecole Hardman as he leads the league in yards after the catch averaging 10.8 per reception.
Minnesota Vikings At Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 9 Picks
We don’t have a betting line for this game right now, but Minnesota has the upper hand in terms of the matchup.
Their running game is one of the best in the NFL, and they are set to face a famously weak defense against the run. I will be surprised if Kansas City’s defense responds as well as they did against Green Bay.
This is a mismatch. The Vikings won’t play around as they will run the ball down your throat and challenge you to stop them. The Vikings should win by at least five points.
Pick: Vikings -4
