Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs Betting Pick

Week 6 of the National Football League is set to kick off with Thursday Night Football, featuring an AFC West showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Broncos enter this matchup fresh off a disappointing loss to the New York Jets, dropping their season record to 1-4, which places them at the bottom of their division.

In contrast, the Kansas City Chiefs have been on a four-game winning streak since their season-opening loss to the Detroit Lions, boasting a 4-1 record and leading the division.

The Chiefs are the favorites in this game, with a point spread of -10.5, and the total points are set at 50.

Chiefs Love to Score, Score, and Score Some More

Heading into Week 6, the Kansas City Chiefs rank as the 9th highest-scoring team in the NFL. They are averaging 258 passing yards and 123 rushing yards per game. Their most notable success has been on third downs, where they lead the league by converting 51.5% of their opportunities.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has had a strong start to the season, amassing over 1,000 passing yards and eight touchdowns, albeit with four interceptions.

His primary target, Travis Kelce, has recorded 17 receptions, 155 yards, and two touchdowns. The Chiefs’ ground game has been inconsistent, but Isiah Pacheco leads with 55 carries, 270 yards, and two touchdowns.

The Chiefs’ victories have come against the Jaguars, Bears, Jets, and Vikings, and they will face the Chargers and Broncos again to close out October.

Slow Start in Denver for Head Coach

As for the Denver Broncos, the Sean Payton era has not begun as they hoped, with four losses in their first five games. Their lone win was a come-from-behind victory against the Bears.

Notably, the Broncos allowed a staggering 70 points in a loss to the Dolphins, contributing to their league-worst average of 36.2 points allowed per game.

Offensively, Russell Wilson has performed well, completing 89 of 132 passes for 1,014 yards, nine touchdowns, and just two interceptions. However, the Broncos’ run game has struggled, with only one rushing touchdown all season. Javonte Williams, who missed last week’s game, remains questionable for the upcoming matchup.

Following this game, the Broncos will return home to face the Packers in Week 7 and the Chiefs again in Week 8 before their Week 9 bye. After the bye, they will take on the Bills, Vikings, and Browns in November.

Chiefs Run over Broncos

This game promises excitement, as these divisional rivals are well-acquainted with each other and will meet twice this month. The Kansas City Chiefs are at home and the better team here.

There is no way Kansas City will want to give Sean Payton the thought that his team can compete in this game or in the division. Look for the Chiefs to jump out to a big lead early and run away with this game.

The Broncos will need adjustments for Game 2 later this month. The Kansas City Chiefs -10.5 is the bet to make this game on Thursday Night Football!
