A Tale of Two Win Streaks

The Chiefs have a below average 7-10 record ATS this year, covering in just 2 of their 5 games to end the season, despite winning all of them. As for the total, the Chiefs went over in 3 out of their last 5.

Both Teams to Score 20+ Points Headlines Props

This matchup features 2 offenses that have ended the season blazing hot, led by young star quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Trevor Lawrence.

Score props on Bovada features strong value to take advantage of the two great offenses, with both teams scoring at least 20 coming in at a very reasonable -120 odds. For bullish bettors, both teams to score 25+ points comes in at a doable +265 but will require both defenses to play worse than their season averages.

Over the course of their respective win streaks, the Chiefs scored more than 20 points in all 5 games, while the Jaguars similarly did so in 5 of their last 6 games. The Jags only failed to do so during their week 16 bout against the Jets in a rainy game, scoring 19 points.

Both defenses are roughly league-average in points per game allowed, with 21.7 and 21.1 points allowed by the Chiefs and Jags, respectively.

While the Jaguars did score just 17 points against the Chiefs in their previous matchup, bettors should be able to capitalize off Jacksonville’s massive offensive momentum: where they scored 24 points in the second half of the Wild Card round and should look to continue their offensive onslaught against the middling Chiefs defense.
