Patriots Vs. Chiefs Predictions – Conference Championship Betting Odds | Lines
When Tom Brady had the ball last in the week 6 meeting against the Chiefs, we all knew the Patriots were about to win the game, and they did. A 43-40 victory over Kansas City was the highlight of very tumultuous season for New England. Going on the road to look for a similar result is the biggest test the Pats will face all season. MyBookie.ag opened the betting line with the Chiefs as 3-point favorites. The line sits there as we speak and I don’t expect any sort of movement before the kickoff. 56% of the betting public has taken Kansas City to win and cover the spread. The game total is currently at 55.5.
NE Patriots Vs. Kansas City Chiefs Conference Championship Picks
New England finished the season with a 3-5 record on the road, and that’s their biggest hurdle entering this game. This is the first time the Patriots are underdogs in the NFL betting odds since visiting Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field in 2014. It’s been a while. The Patriots success on the road won’t be attached to their 41-year-old and multiple Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady. The key is their running game. New England is a running team now, and that’s a great thing to be going on the road in the playoffs. They ran for 155 rushing yards as they stomped the Chargers 41-28 last week in Gillette.
Tailback Sony Michel ran for 129 yards and three scores. The Chiefs need to put a lot of attention to him. Kansas City beat the Colts 31-13 last week and covered the spread as 4.5-point favorites. The Chiefs brought multiple players to pressure Andrew Luck and held Indy to just 87 rushing yards. They can’t have the same approach against New England, or they will be in a huge problem. The good news for the Chiefs is they were 7-1 at home this season, and if they don’t mess up a 14-point lead with five minutes left against the Chargers, they would have ended up unbeaten.
I know most people want to talk about Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes in a shootout for the ages, but that doesn’t happen in the playoffs, especially in Championship games. This game will be won by the team with the best running unit, and right now that is the New England Patriots. What’s the play? Patriots +3.
