Check out our Best NFL Plays in this week’s Fab-Five:

The Baltimore Ravens will look for a much-needed win when they travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The Ravens are in the midst of a three-game winning streak as the team is currently in second place in the AFC North. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are coming off of a win last week to move the team’s record to 10-2. Look for this game to be competitive as both teams need to win this game as the playoffs approach.

Mahomes Looks To Carry Chiefs Once Again

During the offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs shocked some NFL fans when they decided to let former starter Alex Smith go in order to promote second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes as the new starting quarterback. That move appears to have worked as the Chiefs have won ten of its 12 games this season and are on pace to have the best record in the AFC. Last week, the Chiefs managed to beat the Raiders in a thrilling 40-33 game. With a quality defense in Baltimore up next, expect this team’s offense to struggle a bit more.

Kansas City’s offense is led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes who has been amazing in his first season as the starter. This season, Mahomes has thrown for over 3,900 passing yards and 41 passing touchdowns with only ten interceptions. Mahomes has not only proven that he was worth the risk, but he is arguably the league’s MVP this season. Expect him to do most of the heavy lifting if the Chiefs plan on winning this game against a quality foe.

Ravens Continue To Win

Last season, the Baltimore Ravens were inches away from making the NFL playoffs before losing in week 17 to the Cincinnati Bengals. However, this season, the Ravens looked to return to the postseason. After starting out 4-5, the team looked lost and did not appear to have a shot at winning the AFC North. However, the AFC North is suddenly up in the air as the Pittsburgh Steelers have fallen apart. In that same time period, the Ravens have won three straight games. Now, a victory this Sunday could potentially put the Ravens in first place of the AFC North. Look for the team to lay it all on the line in this one.

Baltimore’s offense, in the last few weeks, is led by quarterback Lamar Jackson who is undefeated since becoming the starter. This season, Jackson has only thrown for two passing touchdowns in three games. However, he has also rushed for three touchdowns and over 400 rushing yards. Jackson, though, did leave the game early last week with a concussion so his status for this game is up in the air. If he is unable to play, expect former starter Joe Flacco to get the nod.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Overall, Kansas City is the more talented team and have been playing better than Baltimore has this season. Kansas City is unbelievable at home and has one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Meanwhile, Baltimore might be without Lamar Jackson and he will be at less than 100% if he does end up suiting up. I expect the Chiefs to win this game by at least a touchdown. Give me the home favorite in this one as a result.

Prediction: Kansas City -6.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

While Kansas City has the ability to score a ton of points, Baltimore does not. Baltimore’s offense has been average at best while its defense is one of the best in the league. Baltimore will need to control the time of possession by moving the chains and keeping Mahomes off the field. That is the only way the Ravens can win. I expect the Ravens to win that battle which should result in a lower scoring game. I lean to the under as a result.

Prediction: Under 53
