NFL Betting: Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Odds


Sports Betting blogOkay, you can stop rolling your eyes now. We’re fully aware that mighty Green Bay has met every challenge this gambling season, but with TWO division hosters on deck to conclude the campaign, we expect the undefeated Pack to slack here at Arrowhead Stadium. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

Before scoffing too loudly, you should realize that the loss of star WR Greg Jennings to a knee sprain (out 2-3 weeks) is a major blow to the Cheeseheads’ chances of attaining perfection.

And when it comes to today’s role, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is just 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS as a non-division road favorite versus a foe off a SU and ATS loss.

In addition, it’s possible that the woeful Chiefs could experience the ‘Del Rio Effect’ today; i.e., turn in a decent performance to celebrate the dismissal of a clueless head coach.

Todd Haley, who left Arizona after the Cardinals’ Super Bowl season in 2008 to take the reins in Kansas City, was issued his pink slip this week and Romeo Crennel, something of a coaching refugee himself, becomes interim leader.

Crennel can claim a 3-1-1 ATS log with Cleveland as a dog of more than 7 points against NFC opposition and the Chiefs chips in with an 18-7 ATS record as home dogs of more than 4 points, including 4-0 ATS from Game Fourteen out.

Remember, we’re not asking Geronimo to win the whole game here.

With the Pack covering just four out of its last seven games, we’ll back the 14-point home dog with over 50 YPG the better defense. Besides, Geronimo was our kind of chief – expelled from church for gambling!

Sportsbooks currently have the Packers listed as 14-point favorites versus the Chiefs, while the game's total is sitting at 46½.

Divine Intervention Keeps NFL Playoff Race Exciting


Gambling AdvisorWeek 14 of the NFL betting lines season may go down as the craziest week of the season, as plenty of teams experienced divine intervention. In Jacksonville, the Jaguars scored 41 unanswered points, after falling behind to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 to nothing early in the first half. If that wasn’t enough, the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Houston Texans and of course the Denver Broncos all experienced miracles of their own on Sunday. Thus leaving the Gambling Advisor blog question, is God a fan of the greatest sports league on the planet?

The Houston Texans have experienced one of the most miraculous runs in the NFL this season. Houston started off hot out of the gate, and quickly became the main beneficiary of the Indianapolis Colts season from hell, after Peyton Manning suffered a season ending neck injury. However, if you were like us, you probably felt that the Texans, who historically had been known to crumble down the stretch, were destined to do so again after several injuries in weeks 10 and 11. First, the Texans lost wide receiver Andre Johnson to a hamstring issue, and then they lost quarterbacks Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart to season ending shoulder injuries. As a result, it wouldn’t have been a shock to anyone, if the Texans lost to the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday afternoon.

Instead, despite all the bookie software evidence pointing to a loss, third string quarterback TJ Yates was able to pick apart a depleted Bengals secondary, and mount a division clinching come back victory. Thanks to the aforementioned Falcons win over the Tennessee Titans, the Houston Texans will finally be able to reach the post season, the first time in franchise history. In theory, the Texans can rest up their starters except for Yates, which should then allow Andre Johnson and possibly Matt Schaub to return for playoffs.

The other game that had fans wondering if God was in the building, took place in Dallas, as the Cowboys battled the Giants. With five minutes 41 seconds remaining, the Cowboys were up comfortably 34 – 22. That is when, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning took over the game. Manning connected on two touchdown plays, to give the Giants a 37 to 34 lead over the Cowboys. The Giants played the final moments of the game incredibly smart, as they ran in the second touchdown and two-point conversion, assuring the points. Then, the Giants called a time out at the end of the game, to mess up the timing of Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey. This would allow the Giants to hang on for the narrow victory over Dallas.

In the weekly God has an influence on the outcome game, the Denver Broncos once again came back to steal a victory away from an opponent. The Broncos kicked a game tying 59-yard field goal, and then followed suit with a 51 game winning field goal in overtime. Thus allowing the Broncos to take sole possession of first place in the AFC West.
