Denver had its three-game winning streak snapped last time out, as it suffered a 34-31 overtime loss to the New England Patriots as one-point road underdogs in Week 12, while going OVER the betting total of 54. The Broncos are riding a nine-game divisional win streak dating to last season, which is important to consider when looking over the NFL betting lines. Since taking over as the team’s starting running back in Week 12 of 2012, former Georgia star Knowshon Moreno ranks fifth in the NFL with 1,334 yards on the ground. Denver 14-8 SU and 13-9 ATS on the road the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 14-8 in that situation.
Since former quarterback John Elway was hired in 2011 to fill a role in the front office, the Broncos have posted the fourth most wins in the league at 30. Denver’s 429 points scored in 2013 marks the second-highest total in NFL history for a team’s first 11 games. Veteran signal-caller Peyton Manning has thrown 36 touchdowns passes this season to represented the second most in league history through 11 games.
Kansas City will look to snap a two-game losing streak, which includes a 41-38 setback to the San Diego Chargers as 3.5-point home favorites last Sunday, while losing the statistical battle for a third consecutive contest. “We need to go back and see what’s up and correct it,” commented Chiefs safety Eric Berry. The Chiefs have just two sacks in the last four games after piling up 35 through their first seven, which can’t be ignored when making your pro football picks. Kansas City is 4-11 SU and 6-9 ATS versus division opponents the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 10-4-1 in those 15 opportunities.
The Chiefs hold a 56-51 all-time advantage over the Broncos in their 107 previous meetings, including a 24-16 mark when playing at Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City is first in the league with a plus-13 turnover margin, which is far better than Denver’s minus-three mark in that all-important category.
Sports bettors will likely play the total in this affair, as the UNDER is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings.
