Evan Abrams: Largest Lead Under 17.5 Points (-120)
With this spread hovering around a key number and both offenses capable of going back and forth with the other, there’s no need to overthink this one.
The Rams have only one double-digit win in their past seven games, while the Chiefs have won by double digits in four of their past six.
I think this game goes one of two ways:
1. Both teams try to establish the run and minimize total possessions.
2. Both teams go score-for-score in a shootout.
If this does turn into that score-for-score battle, I trust Patrick Mahomes to not let the Chiefs fall too far behind, especially with the Rams’ deep pass defense ranked 25th according to Football Outsiders’ DVOA.
