Broncos Chiefs Betting – Chiefs Romp Broncos In AFC West Tilt

Online betting players have no idea what to think about the AFC West, a close division of very average teams, and two of them clash on Sunday as Kansas City hosts Denver. The Broncos took Oakland by surprise with their new offense last week, but the Chiefs will be ready and eager to put a poor showing behind them.

What: NFL Betting
When: Sunday, November 13th, 1:00 PM ET
Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO
Pick: Kansas City Chiefs -3

Why Bet On Denver Broncos (3-5 SU, 3-5 ATS)

The Broncos scored 24 unanswered points to end a 38-24 win in Oakland in what was a sloppy game. The teams combined for 26 penalties, which resulted in seven first downs, four for the Broncos. Tim Tebow was only 10-of-21 for 124 yards, but he tossed two touchdowns and ran for another 118 yards as the Broncos installed a similar offense to the spread he ran at Florida and Oakland had no answer for it. It also benefited Willis McGahee, who had 20 carries for 163 yards and two scores for the Broncos, who ran for 299 yards as a team, and that is the last thing you want them to do. The defense gave up 332 passing yards to Carson Palmer, but they also picked him off three times and Eddie Royal added an 85-yard punt return for the go-ahead score. The Broncos have to get contributions from all three facets of their teams if they’re going to be effective.

Tebow still struggles to throw the ball, so you have to turn the Broncos into a passing team and you can bet that the Chiefs have been studying the tape of the Oakland game to learn the nuances of that offense. They probably won’t get the second chances afforded to them by the undisciplined Raiders, so Denver may be forced to pass more on third down and that plays into Kansas City’s hands. As for injuries, safety Rahim Moore (concussion) hasn’t been cleared to practice yet, so that hurts Denver’s depth in the secondary.

Why Bet On Kansas City Chiefs (4-4 SU, 5-3 ATS)

NFL betting players saw the bad Chiefs rear their heads in a 31-3 loss at home to previously winless Miami, ending a four-game winning streak and they made mistakes that sparked a three-game skid to start the season. Matt Cassel was 20-of-39 for 253 yards and was sacked five times and the Chiefs ran 78 plays to 47 for the Dolphins, but couldn’t get anything going. If there was a major offensive positive for Kansas City, it was that Steve Breaston caught seven passes for 115 yards and is now a legitimate second option to Dwayne Bowe, who had six catches for 88 yards and that can only open things up for the Chiefs. Defensively, Kansas City broke down and allowed Matt Moore to look like Joe Montana as he went 17-of-23 for 244 yards and three touchdowns. They didn’t sack Moore once and he had a relatively easy day in the pocket, which is something that the Chiefs have to do when taking on the Broncos.

 

The Chiefs don’t have any major injury worries heading into this divisional game, and they’ll need all hands on deck, particularly on defense as the Raiders pose a serious threat with their running game. Coordinator Romeo Crennel has to figure out a way to contain Tebow, which will slow down McGahee, who had a couple of touchdown runs that came off Tebow’s read-option plays. If you stop Tebow, you have a great chance of stopping Denver. If the Chiefs can turn the Raiders into a passing team, cornerbacks Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr could have a field day similar to the game they have against Oakland in Week 7.

How It Will Play Out

Kansas City is a 3-point NFL betting favorite at home in this AFC West clash, and they’re 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS in their last five at Arrowhead against the Broncos, with three of those games falling under the posted total. Denver has been dangerous on the road with a 3-1 ATS mark, while the Chiefs are 2-2 ATS at home.

The Chiefs have enough team speed on defense to contain Tebow, even though they don’t show it all the time and they’re going to turn Denver into a passing team. The Raiders also don’t have the horses in the secondary to keep up with Bowe, Breaston and Jonathan Baldwin and unless they can get some pressure on Cassel, it’s going to be a long day. The Chiefs have been so inconsistent this year, it is only right they bounce back from a poor performance with a monster game on Sunday. Go with Kansas City in your sports betting picks.
