Ravens Vs. Chiefs: Monday Night Football Betting Preview

  • The Kansas City Chiefs have underdog odds against the Baltimore Ravens on MNF
  • The Chiefs are three point underdogs on the spread, and seem to be a bit overrated based on line analysis.
  • That said, the Chiefs are 9-1-1 against the spread in their last 11 matchups, which is a pretty stunning record.

LAS VEGASMonday Night Football brings one of the premier matchups in the NFL to the table.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the Super Bowl champions, the reigning and defending best team in the league.

The Baltimore Ravens are widely regarded as the number one threat to the dominance of the Chiefs.

Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs won the Super Bowl MVP award, while Lamar Jackson of the Ravens took home the regular-season MVP award.

This showdown between two elite teams will be one of the most-watched and talked about events of the 2020 NFL season.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens

  • Kansas City Chiefs +3.0 (EVEN)
  • Baltimore Ravens -3.0 (-120)

The Chiefs are underdogs, despite their reigning champion status. In fact, the Ravens might be being underrated by this spread.

Check out the Over/Under lines for each team’s point totals, and then compare those to the spread.

Baltimore Ravens - Total Points O/U 29.5

  • Over -115
  • Under -115

Kansas City Chiefs - Total Points O/U 24.5

  • Over -115
  • Under -115

The Ravens O/U is set at 29.5, while the Chiefs O/U is set at 24.5. If one takes these as projections, the Ravens are expected to score five points more than the Chiefs.

This could mean that the spread should actually be favoring the Ravens more. As of now, the bets are coming in evenly on both sides of the matchup.

Perhaps because the Chiefs are the defending champions, the public seems to be on them, especially as a three-point underdog.

Thus, the sportsbooks can’t use the ‘true’ line implied by the O/U’s.

The spread itself has a lot of interesting trends going for it. Both of these teams are absolute monsters on the spread.

The Chiefs are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games on Monday Night Football.

In addition, the Chiefs are 9-1-1 against the spread in their last 11 games.

They say that good teams win, but great teams cover, and the Chiefs have been every bit a great team in that sense.

Baltimore is similarly excellent in recent spread play.

They have a 6-1 record against the spread in their last seven games, and a 5-1 record against the spread in their last six games as a favorite.

Basically, they’re also a great team - they cover spreads very well.

Both of these teams deserve to be regarded as the cream of the crop in the NFL this year, and this matchup should be one of the best betting matchups of the season.
