One week after getting a reality check in a 31-0 loss to the San Diego Chargers, the Kansas City Chiefs head to St. Louis to take on a St. Louis Rams team that has looked pretty good recently. The Chiefs blew a chance to clinch the AFC West division title in the loss to San Diego, but will get a couple more opportunities to prove their worth.

St. Louis still has a lot to play for with three games remaining. The upstart Rams have won two of their last three games to pull in to a tie for first place in the NFC West with the Seattle Seahawks. St. Louis has yet to take down many contenders so far, but will get every opportunity this week against a reeling Chiefs’ team.

Why To Bet On The Chiefs

Kansas City is perfect against NFC opponents this season, and will be very motivated to keep that streak alive with the chance to clinch the AFC West title. The Chiefs took on the Chargers without that aggressive mentality that comes with looking to put an opponent away, and will get a definite boost from the return of quarterback Matt Cassell, who missed last game due to an emergency appendectomy. Football betting back ups Brodie Croyle and Tyler Palko combined for just 48 passing yards in his absence, so there isn’t much chance they could be any worse. Kansas City will rely heavily on their top-ranked rushing attack against a Ram’s defense that has struggled to stop the run the past few seasons.

Why To Bet On The Rams

Losses seem to come in pairs for the Chiefs, who had their first four losses in a couple of back-to-back situations, and the Rams can take advantage of a team traveling in consecutive weeks and coming off a blowout loss. St. Louis has struggled to find consistency on offense, but if they can take a page out of the Chargers’ attack from last week, that won’t be a problem. Rookie quarterback Sam Bradford has shown flashes of greatness through the first few weeks of the season, and has thrown for 2,884 passing yards with 17 touchdowns. The Rams will need a better effort from their run game however, which ranks in the bottom-third of the league despite boasting Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Chiefs have their backs up against the wall once again with the Chargers pressing for top spot in the division, but with all three of their remaining games against teams with below .500 records, it will be interesting to see if they can get it done this week. The Rams have been playing good football lately, but will have a tough time stopping the Kansas City run game.
