Matt Kryger/IndyStar via USA TODAY Sports
- The latest weather forecast for Sunday's NFL game between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs calls for below-freezing temperatures, steady 10 mph winds throughout the game, and, yes, snow.
- The Kansas City area is expected to get 3-7 inches of snow on Sunday -- and with the temperatures comfortably below freezing throughout the game, you shouldn't expect it to turn to rain at any point.
- Below, we'll analyze all of the updated betting odds and how the weather forecast should (and shouldn't) impact your bets.
It’s that time of year, my friends. Though some folks despise it, many are thrilled to see snowflakes slowly falling, especially if those snowflakes are falling on their TV onto an NFL field.
The Broncos and Chiefs are the lucky ones chosen by Mother Nature to play in snow this week. There won’t be blizzard-esque conditions and snow piling up at ridiculous rate, but there should be snow falling consistently throughout the game.
Here’s a detailed look at the Broncos vs. Chiefs weather forecast, including how much snow to expect at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
Broncos vs. Chiefs Weather Forecast
Light to moderate snowfall will begin on Sunday morning in Kansas City and last throughout the day, with 3-7 inches expected by nightfall. Temps will be in the 20s, so we won’t have to worry about any changeover to rain.
There’s no great way of judging snowy games from a historical betting standpoint with so many different factors at hand, like how heavy was the snowfall, how much of the game was it snowing for, was the snow sticking to the ground or melting, etc.
But we can look to the betting market to get its thoughts on how the snow will impact scoring.
On Sunday night following Kansas City’s win over the Patriots, this total could be found at 47 around the market. Over the course of the week, it has gradually dropped down to 44.5, with the most recent waves of sharp action unsurprisingly coming in on the under.
Average wind speeds of 10 mph will make the passing and kicking games even more difficult. Wind is something that we can measure and historically grade using Bet Labs, and unders really do have an edge once wind speeds reach double-digits, hitting 56.3% since 2003.
