Chiefs vs Broncos free pick + betting preview, Thursday Night Football
Week 7 Thursday Night Football, the 4-2 Kansas Chiefs travel a mile high to face the 2-4 Denver Broncos.
Thursday, Oct 17th
Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos
Spread: KC -3.5
Kansas City has been hot, winning their last 7 games versus their AFC West rival. The Chiefs have also cashed in for bettors, winning 6 of these 7 games against the spread (ATS).
Who should bettors take in tonight's matchup?
I am leaning towards taking Denver +3.5.
The Chiefs have had some struggles. They lost 2 games in a row at home (vs. Colts and Texans). In their last 3, they are 0-3 against the spread. This trend may continue tonight.
You should look towards the underdog. Denver has been playing better. In their last 2 games, they have limited opponents to an average of 6.5 points! They wont completely shut down the Chiefs, but they should make it competitive.
Public betting is heavy towards Chiefs
There is a heavy gap here. Some sites report over 70% of public wagers are going on Kansas City. This shows a large public consensus on a road favorite.
In this case, you should always bet the other way (take the Broncos).
I am taking the underdog Broncos in tonight's game. They have been playing solid defense and they should be able to keep this game competitive. A 3.5 point spread will come in handy tonight. Good luck.
