No, you’re not reading that wrong, the Chiefs are currently dead last in the AFC West.
Questions have been asked of Andy Reid’s side following back-to-back losses to the Ravens and Chargers, but the good news is they’ve drawn a very favourable matchup against the Eagles this week.
For whatever reason, the Eagles completely abandoned their running game in the 41-21 loss to the Cowboys last Tuesday, but it’s fair to say we’ll see plenty of Jalen Hurts running the ball this week.
The Chiefs were torched by Lamar Jackson on the ground two weeks ago, and have so far allowed the second-most rushing yards in the league.
Not to be outdone, Kansas City’s secondary has struggled to contain teams through the air, which does leave Philly looking like a decent value bet to at least keep this game close.
The Chiefs have been a very profitable bounce-back bet over the last few years, but with Patrick Mahomes throwing two picks last week and the defence looking downright awful, I think the +7.5 about the Eagles at home is generous.
