Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Denver Broncos (4-7) seek satisfaction in Arrowhead Stadium, as they clash with the Kansas City Chiefs (10-1). In Week 12, the league notified the Broncos right before kickoff that all of their quarterbacks were ineligible (COVID-19). As a result, WR Kendall Hinton was called up from the practice squad to make the start. Hinton only completed one pass for nine yards, and the sideswiped Broncos were smashed 31-3 by the Saints. As of this writing, it looks like Drew Lock will be back in the saddle for Denver against Kansas City. The Broncos are three games out of the wild card, and they’ll try to vent some frustrations against the Chiefs. Kansas City has won six consecutive games and enjoys a huge lead in the AFC West. The Chiefs defeated the Buccaneers 27-24 last week in Tampa Bay, and flattened Denver 43-16 at Sports Authority Field. It may sound crazy, but taking the Broncos +14 is the right call. Denver is going to make Patrick Mahomes and company sweat it out. Chiefs 33, Broncos 27
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Denver Broncos played without a proper quarterback against the New Orleans Saints (Week 12), but Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles are back and ready to go. Lock has been the starter, but many believe that Rypien should have a chance. RB’s Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay are supposed to carry the load offensively.
The Broncos average 19 points per game (second worst in the league) and the total has gone under in 10 of their last 14 games played in December.
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs look unstoppable. They average 31.6 points per game (second best in the league). Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are second and third in the league with 1021 and 978 receiving yards.
The total has gone over in four of the Chiefs’ last five games against a divisional rival. They already crushed the Broncos 43-16 (Week 7). Go over once again.
