The New England Patriots will host the Kansas City Chiefs at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts this Sunday. Bill Belichick’s men have seen a drop in form in recent games and will want to cement a home win against fierce opposition.
Patriots vs Chiefs: Form and Predictions
A string of defeats, followed by a narrow win against the Colts in week 6, sees Tom Brady’s side finally coasting into calmer waters.
James White and Jeremy Hill, the Patriots running-backs, played a massive part in last weeks win over Frank Reich’s men, with the former leading the Pat’s to their winning touchdown.
As the first bet in our Patriots vs Chiefs predictions, we’re tipping Belichick’s men to emerge as victors on home turf.
They will face tough opponents in the Kansas City Chiefs.
Andy Reid’s side cemented an impressive victory last week against last season’s best defence: the Jacksonville (‘Sack-sonville’) Jaguars.
Despite recent wins occurring in overtime, they have shown that they possess a top quality quarterback in Patrick Mahomes to challenge the Patriots this Sunday.
Aside from Mahomes, the Chiefs also excelled through their running backs, with Kareem Hunt in the thick of the action.
Hunt had 87 rushing yards to his name against the Jaguars last weekend and has proved that he is capable of causing the Patriots all sorts of defensive problems.
So, while we’ve made Brady’s side our pick to win as part of the Patriots vs Chiefs predictions, we’re betting that it’ll be a challenging game for Belichick’s side with multiple attacking threats present in the Chiefs team.
Patriots vs Chiefs predictions: match bets
Match predictions: Patriots to win, tipped @ 10/19
The Patriots playing at home in front of their fans has persuaded our betting tipsters to wager in their favour.
Odds of 19/10 are still pretty risky, but fortune favours the brave (and Tom Brady).
The Pat’s quarterback clinched over 300 yards against the Colts, with three winning throws, and that was against a robust Colts defence.
The first of our match bets in our Patriots vs Chiefs predictions forecast the 41-year-old to continue his form into this Sunday’s clash.
Best bet: game to go to overtime, trading @ 9/1
The Chiefs have stolen points in the dying moments of the game to take things to overtime twice this season already, despite losing to the Giants in one of those attempts.
If there is any team that can spoil a seamless victory for the Patriots, then it’s Reid’s men.
Granted, they haven’t been too prolific after full-time, but with odds tipped at 9/1, taking a punt on the Chiefs to snatch a late victory wouldn’t be a bad wager.
Double result: Kansas City/Patriots, betting @ 13/2
The last installation of our Patriots vs Chiefs predictions focuses on a double result.
We’re projecting Reid’s men to be on the front foot in the first half, but the Patriots are our pick to emerge stronger after the break.
The third and fourth quarter plays have seen strong play from both sides, but if we’ve learnt anything from Pat’s wins last week, it’s that Rob Gronkowski can be found anywhere by Brady.
Our traders chose the perfect combination of betting tips, with Gilette Stadium the perfect stage for a massive win, as either side have a hand in the stakes.
