I was out of commission this past Sunday, but I saved my lone and best bet of the week for last. Tonight, the New England Patriots will be traveling to play at a hostile environment against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I believe the Pats at -3 are a steal. I believe this line should be New England -6, so this betting spot should be taken advantage of by the betting world, (especially in the New England area).
The Pats have looked sluggish through the majority of the season other, with week two being an exception. New England only beat the lonely Oakland Raiders 16-9 last week at Gillette Stadium, but I think that poor performance is just what the doctor ordered for the Pats.
There is no way that Bill Belichick will allow his team to have another lackluster performance after what they displayed against the Raiders. New England will be paying attention to detail, (especially on the offensive side), as I believe tonight’s game is the most difficult test they have faced the first four weeks of the season. There have also been stories about tonight’s game being the loudest Chiefs home game in their franchises history. It is always tough to win a game at Kansas City, but New England will lean on their stingy defense, as they have all season. The Pats have had to lean on their defense, as the offense has been pitiful to put it nicely. The New England defense is the reason why they have a 2-1 record. The Pats defense has struggled in stopping the run, and the Chiefs will most likely have their most dangerous weapon back in running back Jamaal Charles, which on the surface looks like it could be problematic for New England. I believe the Patriots will do as good job in limiting Charles production and leaving the game into Alex Smith’s hands. I think Tom Brady will take advantage of a depleted Chiefs defense, and will turn red zone drives into touchdowns rather than field goals. The New England offense is going to propel them to a 30-21 victory tonight.
