Chiefs vs. Ravens is certainly a very high-profile Sunday Night Football matchup, but it’s surprising to see the perception of these teams from mainstream media analysts, fans and recreational bettors after just one week of action.

In front of a nationally-televised Monday Night Football audience, the Ravens lost to the Raiders in Las Vegas.

On the other hand, the Chiefs gave us a classic Kansas City comeback by storming from behind to beat the Cleveland Browns at Arrowhead Stadium.

At the time of writing, 78% of spread tickets are laying the points with the Chiefs, tying them as the most public side of NFL Week 2 with the New England Patriots.

There’s no question bettors are overreacting to Week 1 results, so is Baltimore the smart play to bounce back on Sunday Night Football?

Or is the Chiefs vs. Ravens over/under providing the most value instead?

Thanks to our NFL PRO Projections we know the answer.
