The Chiefs just barely covered their 10.5-point spread against the Broncos a couple of weeks ago, and it seems like oddsmakers are thinking Round 2 will be closer.
Kansas City is listed as a 7.5-point favorite (-400 moneyline odds) at Denver this week as it looks to push its winning streak to 16 straight against the Broncos.
But just because we have a good feeling the Chiefs will win, it doesn’t mean we can’t find value betting on this game!
Here’s how you can take advantage of these opening odds (and win $200 in instant bonus bets at BetMGM!):
Chiefs vs. Broncos Week 8 Opening Odds
It seems like oddsmakers are lessening the spread this time around due to the fact that Denver is at home, but that might not make much of a difference.
The Broncos are just 1-3 at home this season while the Chiefs are 2-1 on the road.
When it comes to covering spreads, the story doesn’t change. Denver is 1-5-1 against the spread (ATS) this season while Kansas City is 5-2!
That means this could be a great spot to back your Chiefs to cover a big number.
But if you don’t feel comfortable giving 7.5 points after a 19-8 win in Week 6, you could instead bet over/under 45.5 total points.
Considering these teams combined for 27 points just two weeks ago, it might be worth your time to look into the under here.
Surprisingly, the over is just 2-5 in Kansas City games this season and 4-3 in Denver games.
But aside from a couple of scoring outbursts against Washington and Chicago, Denver has 20 points or more just twice (a 70-20 loss to Miami and a 31-21 loss to the Jets).
Kansas City beating Denver has been one of the most reliable bets in all of sports over the past eight years and you can make sure the trend continues tonight at BetMGM!
