Patriots vs Chiefs NFL Divisional Playoff Odds and Game Day Call
New England Patriots: Bye Week helped the battered Champs
Following an injury ravaged season, New England used the bye week to get some of their wounded warriors back on the field. Participating in the NFL playoffs for the twelfth time in thirteen years, and as the defending Super Bowl Champions, not many teams match the postseason experience the Patriots bring to the table. New England gets receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola back at near full health and TE Rob Gronkowski, though not 100% healthy, is also expected to play. This will be the first time since Week 10 that all three of those players will be on the field together.
Kansas City Chiefs: Hottest team in the NFL is riding an eleven game winning streak
After opening the season with a 1-5 record, and losing All Pro RB Jamaal Charles in the process, Kansas City has won eleven straight games. Included in the run is the Chiefs 30-0 trouncing of the Texans in Houston during Wild Card playoff action last weekend. Kansas City has dealt with injuries all season as well and the latest Chief to fall is leading WR Jeremy Maclin who will miss this contest with a high ankle sprain. Although athletic rookie WR Chris Conley will step in, as a fairly decent replacement for Maclin, stud TE Travis Kelce is also affected as he will draw additional coverage from Patriots defense. The Chiefs and QB Alex Smith will have a tough time scoring in this contest.
Patriots vs Chiefs NFL Prediction: QB Tom Brady & Co. have won four straight Divisional Playoff games and, apart from their close 35-31 win over the Ravens last year, the margin of victory was by 13 or more points. The Chiefs win over Houston was their first playoff victory since 1993 as they had lost their previous eight postseason contests. We like the better QB, the more explosive offense and the Pats playoff savvy head coach. Back New England with a five-unit wager on the money line price posted on the NFL betting board at Bodog.
