Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs - 12/5/21 NFL Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

This week’s Sunday Night Football features The Kansas City Chiefs as they play host to the Denver Broncos from Arrowhead Stadium in an AFC West matchup. 

The Broncos were a +3 underdog at home against the Chargers last week but were able to defeat LA 28-13. Teddy Bridgewater was 11/18 for 129 passing yards and threw one passing TD. He also ran for 10 rushing yards and a rushing TD. Bridgewater missed the entire second quarter due to a lower leg injury

Bridgewater has served well as the team's quarterback this season, leading the way with 228.9 yards per game through the air and 15 touchdowns compared to five interceptions.

Denver is averaging 20.7 points per game. They rank 21st in passing yards per game and 11th in rushing yards per attempt. The Broncos’ defense is allowing 17.8 points per game and 2.5 sacks per game.

After a rocky start to the season the Kansas City Chiefs are putting it together as they have won 6 of their last 8 games. They come into this one off of a bye week. Patrick Mahomes went 23/37 for 260 passing yards, threw one interception, and lost a fumble in their last win against the Dallas Cowboys. The Chiefs are last in the league with 22 turnovers. 

Kansas City won the last matchup between these two teams in 2020 when the final was 16-22. 

The Chiefs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC West. The Chiefs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite.

The Broncos are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week and are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games in Week 13. The road team is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

I like KC to get the win in this one but they have struggled to dominate teams this season. The Broncos have been great at covering spreads in losses and this seems like another one of those spots. I’ll take the points with the Broncos in this one.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
