Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos Odds, and Picks (Oct 29)
- The Chiefs surged past the Chargers on Sunday, winning 31-17, and climbing to 6-1.
- Denver got a much-needed victory against the Packers, winning by a score of 19-17.
- These two teams last met just two weeks ago, in a game that the Chiefs won 19-8.
The NFL season is at the halfway point. Let’s preview the upcoming Chiefs vs Broncos AFC West matchup. Both teams won last week. They’ll aim to keep their momentum this week in a divisional bout and rematch.
How to Watch
Kansas City took down the Chargers on Sunday. It was a breakout game for Patrick Mahomes, who had posted more modest numbers so far this season with a depleted receiving corps. He finished the day 32 of 42 for 424 yards, 4 TDs, and 1 INT. The Chiefs defense has been one of their biggest assets. They rank 2nd in the NFL in points allowed, which is a scary combination for a team that also has Patrick Mahomes.
The Broncos finally got their first home win of the year, improving to 2-5. They’re staring 2-7 in the face, with matchups against the Chiefs and Bills up next. If Denver can win one or both of those games, they could get back on track and salvage the season. If not, they may be already thinking about the NFL Draft by the time Thanksgiving arrives. Their defense looked much better in the last two games, which is crucial.
When these teams last met two weeks ago, it was an extremely defensive and low-scoring game. I expect the opposite of that this time around, with the offenses breaking out. Mahomes and Wilson will likely be airing it out in Denver, which gives Kansas City the advantage. They won by 11 against the Broncos at home, so an 8-point spread on the road isn’t a lock. That being said, I still like the Chiefs to win and cover.
