Early Chiefs-Rams Odds: Vegas Opens Record-Setting Over/Under in Mexico City

Oct 24, 2018 7:00 PM EDT
  • The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has posted early betting odds for the NFL's Week 11 matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City.
  • With both teams offering potent offenses, the over/under could realistically set a record for the highest closing total we've ever tracked.

NFL scoring is soaring this season, forcing oddsmakers to adjust over/unders in order to keep pace.

As totals creep higher and higher, NFL fans and bettors are already looking toward Week 11’s Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams matchup in Mexico City as one that could shatter over/under records.

According to Sports Insights’ Bet Labs software that includes archived NFL line data from Pinnacle since the start of the 2003 season, the Oakland Raiders-Kansas City Chiefs matchup on Dec. 25, 2004 closed with an over/under of 60, the highest we’ve ever tracked.

Kansas City won the game, 31-30, putting the game over the total by a single point.

While Chiefs-Rams is weeks away, offshore sportsbook BetOnline posted a Chiefs-Rams total of 59.5 on Oct. 17.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened its own lookahead lines for this matchup on Oct. 24, but with an over/under of 63.5. That would obviously shatter the previous record in Bet Labs’ database.

In addition to the stunning over/under, Westgate also posted the Rams as 3-point favorites over the Chiefs.
