One is now the magic number for the Kansas City Chiefs heading in to their game against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. The Chiefs are one game away from clinching the AFC West division ahead of the San Diego Chargers, and will have two chances to do so with consecutive home games against the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders.

The Chiefs have not lost at home in six games this season, and will likely need to complete the sweep to keep their position ahead of the reigning division champions. Their first obstacle: Taking down a Titans’ team that is coming off a win that snapped a six-game losing streak.

Why To Bet On The Titans

It’s a case of déjà vu for Tennessee, which watched as a promising start unraveled and turned in to another washout of a season. Quarterback Vince Young is gone for the final two games, including road dates against the Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts. It’s hard to imagine the Titans clinching a victory in either one. Tennessee ranks near the bottom of the league in passing yards, and their one strength on both sides of the ball happens to be the run, which Kansas City is better at. The Titans did a lot of things right when they jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter of their 31-17 win over the Houston Texans last week, but they weren’t a strong defensive team playing in front of a raucous home crowd with their playoff ambitions on the line.

Why To Bet On The Chiefs

Kansas City has continued to chip away at a relatively mediocre schedule with the best rush-offense in the league, and that won’t stop this week. Running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones are averaging a combined 168.6 yards per game and have combined for 10 touchdowns, while quarterback Matt Cassel has played the role of game manager to a tee. Cassel returned from an appendectomy to throw for 184 yards and a score in a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams last week, and appears to be in fine shape. The Chiefs’ defense ranks in the middle of the pack, but are better against the run than they are the pass, which should work well against the Titans. Kansas City has held football betting opponents of 9.5 points over their last three home wins, and will look to continue that trend this week against a Tennessee team that is .500 on the road.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Titans have no pressure on them whatsoever, and that could help them keep this one close through the first couple of quarters, but ultimately the Chiefs are the better team. Kansas City is 6-0 at home this season, and Tennessee has yet to win on the road without Vince Young. That won’t change this week as the Chiefs do their part to move one step closer to clinching the AFC West crown.
