Betting market: The Chiefs have been a trendy dog throughout the week and are up to 55% of spread bets as of writing (see live data here).
However, the majority of books have kept the Patriots at a juiced-up -3 or even a 3.5-point favorite — most likely because the Pats are getting about two-thirds of the money.
If books do fall back to -3 at standard juice (-110), I wouldn’t expect the line to stay there long. — Danny Donahue
The over/under of 60 at Pinnacle is now tied for the highest we’ve ever tracked, and it’s not scaring over bettors away.
At least 75% of bets and dollars are on the over, pushing it from 57.5/58 into record-breaking territory. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: Kansas City is one of two undefeated teams in the NFL. Teams with a perfect record that are underdogs after September have gone 22-16-2 against the spread since 2003.
Meanwhile, in games that Tom Brady has started since 2003, the Patriots are 28-9-3 (76%) ATS as a home favorite of less than a touchdown. — John Ewing
