Denver Broncos 8-6 SU,8-6 ATS

The Denver Broncos are now 2-4 in their last six games after another sloppy showing in a 16-3 loss to the New England Patriots. Their only wins during that time were against the Saints and the Jaguars. Denver is 6-1 straight-up and against the spread in its last seven trips to Kansas City.

The Broncos defense is always capable of keeping the team in the game. The unit has held each of its last three opponents to 16 points or fewer. They also forced the great Tom Brady into his worst game of the season. Brady went just 16-of-32 for 188 yards and no touchdowns.

Kansas City Chiefs 10-4 SU,7-7 ATS

The Kansas City Chiefs’ luck finally ran out in their 19-17 loss at home to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The Chiefs defense forced three more turnovers, but their offense failed to capitalize on a couple of trips to the red zone, which cost them dearly.

Broncos vs Chiefs
Prediction: Chiefs -4

I would normally like the road dog in a division game like this one but, the Broncos offense has been so bad that I just can’t back them. In the end the Chiefs defense might outscore the Broncos offense. Looking for the game to be close early with the Chiefs pulling away in the second half.
