The Line: Kansas City Chiefs +3 -- Over/Under:
The Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs meet Sunday in NFL action at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Minnesota Vikings look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Minnesota Vikings have split their last four road games. Kirk Cousins is completing 72.1 percent of his passes for 1,997 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 17 games. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have combined for 1,097 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Dalvin Cook has 29 receptions. The Minnesota Vikings ground game is averaging 160.1 yards per contest, and Cook leads the way with 823 yards and nine touchdowns. Defensively, Minnesota is allowing 16.5 points and 313.9 yards per game. Eric Kendricks leads the Minnesota Vikings with 68 tackles, Danielle Hunter has eight sacks and Anthony Harris has three interceptions.
The Kansas City Chiefs could use a win after losing three of their last four games. The Kansas City Chiefs have lost each of their last three home games. Matt Moore is completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 384 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Moore has 56 pass attempts under his belt this season. Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins have combined for 1,014 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Mecole Hardman has 20 receptions. The Kansas City Chiefs ground game is averaging 83 yards per contest, and LeSean McCoy leads the way with 362 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Kansas City is allowing 22.6 points and 377 yards per game. Damien Wilson leads the Kansas City Chiefs with 50 tackles, Emmanuel Ogbah has 4.5 sacks and Charvarius Ward has two interceptions.
The Vikings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on grass and 3-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Chiefs are 3-7-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The over is 11-5 in Chiefs last 16 games overall. The under is 10-4 in Vikings last 14 games overall.
The Minnesota Vikings have covered seven of their last 10 games as a road favorite. The Kansas City Chiefs have failed to cover six of their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Vikings are playing their best football in quite some time and Cousins is looking more and more like a difference maker, but their hiccups usually take place on the road. The Kansas City Chiefs have lost three of their last four, but they've been in every game and just took the Packers down to the wire with a backup quarterback. There's also a chance Patrick Mahomes returns for this game, as he's listed as questionable at the time this article was published. The Kansas City Chiefs are not a pushover despite their recent struggles. I'll take the free field goal with the home team.
