Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Rams

Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, CA

When: Monday, November 19, 8:20 PM. ET.

This week’s edition of Monday Night Football could also a possible Super Bowl preview because it features the 9-1 Kansas City Chiefs, who have the best record in the AFC, taking on the Los Angeles Rams, who lead the NFC with an identical 9-1 record.

Chiefs Looking For Fifth Consecutive Win

The Chiefs shook off their loss to the New England Patriots by reeling off four consecutive wins. They will be trying to keep the momentum going and create some distance in the race for the best record in the AFC by winning their fifth consecutive game when they face the Rams.

Offensively, the Chiefs are the second best team in the league this season, averaging 35.3 points per game. They should be able to put up a lot of points against the Rams, who have given up over 30 points in two consecutive games.

Patrick Mahomes has been phenomenal this season and is one of the front-runners for the MVP Award. The second-year player has completed 67 percent of his passes for 3,150 yards, 31 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He also has 158 rushing yards and two touchdowns this season.

Kareem Hunt has also played well for the Chiefs, who have one of the best rushing attacks in the league. Hunt has 754 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. He also has 23 catches for 337 yards and six touchdowns.

Defensively, the Chiefs struggled earlier in the season but they have played well in their last four games, giving up 17 points per game. If they can hold the Rams under 30 points, they should be able to get the win.

Rams Need To Play Better Defensively

The Rams got off to a great start this season, winning their first eight games. They suffered their first loss of the season against the New Orleans Saints because they struggled defensively. They bounced back from the loss with a win over the Seattle Seahawks, but they also struggled defensively in that game.

Los Angeles will need to turn things around on the defensive end if they want to defeat the Chiefs on Monday night.

Offensively, the Rams are averaging 33.5 points per game, which is third in the league. Jared Goff has also played well this season and will get a few MVP votes at the end of the season. Goff has completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 3,134 yards, 22 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

The engine that drives Los Angeles’ offense is Todd Gurley II, who leads the team and the league in rushing with 988 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also has 40 receptions for 402 yards and five touchdowns.

The Rams will be without Cooper Kupp, who suffered an ACL injury in their last game. Kupp has 40 receptions for 566 yards and six touchdowns.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Despite having the best record in the league, the Rams have struggled against the spread. They have lost six of their last seven games and four of their last five games against teams with winning records. The Chiefs have been great against the spread, winning their last six road games against teams with winning records and their last four games against teams with winning records.

Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs +3.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in six of Kansas City’s last seven road games and in four of the team’s last five road games against teams with winning home records. The total has also gone over in four of Los Angeles’ last five games against teams with winning records and in seven of the team’s last eight games after gaining more than 250 passing yards in their previous game.

Prediction: Over 63.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Chiefs will go over 30.5 points in this game because they are averaging 35.3 points per game and they are facing a defense that 34.3 points in their last three games.

Prediction: Chiefs – Total Points Over 30.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Chiefs will win the first half of this game because they have played better than the Rams in the first half. Kansas City is averaging 19 points per game in the first half of its last three games while Los Angeles is averaging 14 points per game. The Chiefs have also done better defensively, holding opponents to 12 points per game in the first half of their last three games while the Rams are giving up 19.7 points per game.

Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs +2.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Rams and Chiefs are averaging 33 combined points in the first half of their last three games and their defenses are giving up 31.7 points. Expect both teams to score enough points to go over the first half total in this game.

Prediction: Over 31.5

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Rams and Chiefs love to take shots downfield and will have several opportunities to do so against defenses that have given up big plays this season. Expect at least one touchdown score of 56.5 yards or more.

Prediction: Longest Touchdown of the Game Over 56.5 yards
