Betting market: At the time of writing, 61% of bettors are laying the points with Kansas City, yet 72% of dollars wagered are taking Denver.

Should these splits continue, don’t be surprised to see the sharps coming in on the Broncos, especially if the market moves to +10.5 (see live betting data here). — PJ Walsh

Trends to know: The Chiefs have opened the regular season 7-0 against the spread. Kansas City is one of just three teams since 1990 to cover the spread in each of their first seven games of the season.

The previous two teams were the 2008 Tennessee Titans, who started 7-0 straight up /ATS and finished the season 13-3 SU/12-4 ATS, and the 2007 New England Patriots, who started 7-0 SU/ATS and finished the season 16-0 SU/10-6 ATS. — Evan Abrams

Double-digit underdogs against division opponents are 111-82-5 (58%) ATS since 2003, according to our Bet Labs data.

These teams perform best in the first half of the season. In Weeks 1-8, underdogs in this spot are 33-16-2 (67%) ATS. In Weeks 9-17 they are 68-58-2 (54%). — Evan Abrams

Denver beat Arizona 45-10 on Thursday Night Football in Week 7. The Broncos are just the second team to win its previous game by 30 or more points and then be listed as a double-digit underdog since 2003.

The previous team, the Lions in Week 6 of 2010, covered the spread. — John Ewing
