NFL Betting – Chiefs vs. Patriots Props

One of the best matchups so far this season takes place on Sunday night, as the Kansas City Chiefs visit the New England Patriots on NBC. It is a matchup featuring Patrick Mahomes and the high scoring Kansas City offense against Tom Brady and the gold standard of the AFC, the Patriots. Props will also be available on the first team to score, sacks, point scored, etc. Let’s look at this Week 6 matchup and some props picks.

Date and Time: Sunday, October 14, 2018, 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
NFL Odds at BetDSI: Patriots -3 (-120), O/U 59.5
Chiefs vs. Patriots TV Coverage: NBC

First to Score a Touchdown

The Patriots are a slight favorite to win this game and they will be a slight favorite to score the first touchdown. If you think the Patriots are going to score first you will probably have to deal with Kansas City getting the first possession of the game. The Chiefs will probably take the ball first if they win the coin toss, while the Patriots always defer if they win the toss. There could be some value in taking Kansas City to score the first TD of the game, but keep in mind that this game is on the road and Bill Belichick will have his defense ready for Mahomes.

Quarterback Props

Much of the attention on the props on Sunday night will be on the quarterbacks with props on Mahomes and Brady. Mahomes has been nearly perfect this season, but this is a high profile matchup against a New England defense that Bill Belichick will have ready. Taking some of the Mahomes props under could be the way to go with the quarterback props on Sunday night.

I would also lean to the over with the Brady props, as the Kansas City defense is very poor and they are terrible against the pass. The Chiefs are giving up a league-high 343 yards per game through the air, by far the worst in the NFL. Sunday night should be a field day for Brady and the New England offense.

Running Back Props

The Chiefs have a good running back in Kareem Hunt and props will be on the board for him, while props will be on the board for New England running backs James White and Sony Michel. The Patriots should be able to run the ball effectively against a bad Kansas City defense, so going over the total on White and Michel may be the way to go.

I said that the Chiefs were bad against the pass, but they are not much better against the pass, as they are giving up 118.8 yards per game, 24th in the league.

Wide Receiver Props

There will be some interesting numbers on the receiver and tight end props. The Chiefs have a dynamic receiver in Tyreek Hill, while the Patriots have a group of receivers led by Julian Edelman. I think you can go over the total on all of the New England receivers. The Kansas City secondary is very poor and I expect New England to score almost at will in this game.

Take all of the New England receivers to go over their totals and don’t forget about Rob Gronkowski, as he should have a big game against the Kansas City defense.

Chiefs vs. Patriots Props Picks

The total on this game is almost 60, so oddsmakers expect a very high scoring game. The Chiefs are scoring 35 points per game, while the Patriots are averaging 26.6 points per contest. The Patriots have the far better defense in this game and they are playing at home, so Kansas City may get slowed down a little bit. I think the value in this game is going to be on New England players.

I think you can make a case for taking a number of the New England players over their totals and I especially like the New England receivers. The Chiefs are last in the NFL against the pass and they should get torched in this game by all of the New England receivers.
