Why Bet on the Chiefs?  

Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs’ offense was practically unstoppable last year. I expect Kansas City to come out gunning in their first game of the season as they set their targets on last year’s 12-win campaign.

The word in everyone’s mouths, however, is that Patrick Mahomes has to regress this season. But, I believe Mahomes will silence the naysayers and pick the Jags’ defense to pieces.

Most of the Chiefs’ starters played a lot of repetitions in the preseason, and that gives them a jump ahead over the Jaguars. Plus, the fact that Tyreek Hill received a vote of confidence in the manner of a contract extension bodes well for Kansas City turning this game into a blowout.

Why Bet on the Jaguars?  

Many factors are working against the Jaguars in their opening game, including missing their starting left tackle and quarterback Nick Foles’ looming abdominal injury.

Jacksonville’s defense though is solid, and if they manage to get to Mahomes and pressure him, they may stay in the game. The problem is that for as good as the defense is, it may be overwhelmed by the Chiefs’ host of offensive talent.

Last year, the Jaguars pretty much fell into a hole and finished 5-11 SU and 5-9-2 ATS. The awful result can be chalked up to Bortles’ inability to lead the offense. Even while Foles might change things for the Jaguars, I don’t think this is the game where it’ll happen.

Insider Prediction:  While everyone is expecting Kansas City to turn this game into a bloodbath, I think the Jaguars defense will do its job and keep him under wraps. But, don’t expect the Jaguars to put up many points, either. In other words, I favor the under for this game.

Pick: UNDER +50.5
