Kansas City Chiefs VS Baltimore Ravens

A very good match up is happening for punters on Sunday at 12 PM Central in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs as 3 point underdogs will be hosting the Ravens. The smart money here would be to take the Chiefs to cover the spread at a sportsbook such as Sportsbook.com. The Chiefs are 7 and 1 at Arrowhead this year. They are also very smart with the ball only having 12 turnovers in 16 games. Arrowhead will be rocking and putting pressure on the Ravens offense. The matchups seem pretty even when looking closely.

The Chiefs are the number 1 rushing team in the league. The Ravens are 5th at stopping the run. The Chiefs are 30th in passing while the Ravens are 21st against the pass. The Ravens are 20th in passing and 14th in rushing. The Chiefs are 17th against the pass while 14th against the rush. The Chiefs will do just enough on defense to keep the Ravens in check. The Chiefs are plus 9 in the turnover ratio so they are careful with the ball while having a very opportunistic defense.

Another thing to note is that after a crushing loss like the Chiefs had against the Raiders in week 17 the Chiefs always bounce back. After the Chiefs were embarrassed in week 10 by the Broncos they came back and won their next 3 games. In week 14 the Chiefs were crushed by the Chargers. The next two weeks the Chiefs won convincingly. A mad Chiefs team during the playoffs will always be my bet. The Ravens do not fair well against smaller, faster backs like Jamaal Charles.

They will be worn out on defense while the Chiefs control the clock and keep the Ravens inconsistent offense off the field. The Chiefs will easily cover the spread this Sunday at Arrowhead.
