Chiefs Patriots Betting – Patriots Look To Parlay Momentum Against Sliding Chiefs
When Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Matt Cassel takes to the field this Sunday at Gillette Stadium, he will return to the field where he got his professional start. Cassel must have had this game against the New England Patriots circled since the regular season schedule was first released, so he will be even more bitter when he watches from the sidelines as Tyler Palko takes his place as the starter due to an injury that could keep him out the remainder of the season. The Chiefs have lost consecutive games to fall back below the .500 mark, and while they are still just one game out of the division lead, they will be in tough to bounce back.

It isn’t just about the Patriots’ latest win over the New York Jets and how strong they have looked, as the Chiefs will be in hostile territory in three of their next four. For New England meanwhile, this game will be about parlaying the momentum of their latest win and avoiding the mistakes that have plagued them in the past.

The schedule makers surely weren’t kind to a Chiefs’ team that will travel to face the Patriots before returning home to clash with the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers, then go on the road for back-to-back games against the Chicago Bears and New York Jets, before returning home again to face the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Cassel’s injury could not have come at a worse time for a team that had won four in a row in October to climb to the top of the division, but could now be destined for the AFC West sports betting basement.
Chiefs Patriots Betting Preview: New England Patriots
After emerging from their bye week with consecutive losses, the Patriots finally got things back on track with a big win at the New York Jets in a game that capped off one of the toughest points in their schedule. New England will now play six straight against teams with losing records before their season finale against the Buffalo Bills, and considering they are already out front in the division, they should be able to lock up one of the top spots and home field advantage. Whether or not the adversity that Tom Brady and company have faced takes them to the next level or ends up costing them in the end only time will tell, but it should make for an exciting finish.

For as awful as the New England pass defense has been, it shouldn’t be the biggest concern this week with Cassel on the sidelines and Palko under center. The Patriots executed to perfection in the second half against the Jets, and will now look to parlay that momentum in to another big online wagering result at home.Chiefs Patriots Betting Pick: New England Patriots
