Chiefs team total over 30.5 (2 units)
The good thing about betting team totals is that we don’t have to worry about whether the other team is going to help us get to an over or under. We learned this the hard way yesterday as the Bills scored at will against the Steelers, but Pittsburgh couldn’t break the goal line once to put the game over. Tonight, we lean to the over 51.5 as the Raiders visit the Chiefs in a classic rivalry, but we’ll play it safer by playing the Chiefs behind Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce to go over the posted team total of 30.5. We get the Chiefs at home, who are averaging a league-leading 32 points per game while playing the toughest schedule in the NFL to date. The Raiders are stronger against the run than they are against the pass. KC will be able to move the ball and score, and hopefully, the Raiders can put some points up as well, so the Chiefs don’t take the air out of the ball in the second half. Our friends at BetUS are dealing a KC team total of 30.5 and we’re taking the over.
