Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will take on Lamar Jackson and the Ravens on Sunday Night Football.
This is a matchup between 2 heavyweights in the AFC.
Kansas City started off laying 3 points, but it is now 3.5 in almost every book I checked. Most totals I see are at 55.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs got off to a good start in 2021 as they beat the Browns by 4 points. Cleveland was winning 22-10 at the half, but as it often happens, Kansas City rallied back and won the game.
Patrick Mahomes was very good on Sunday. The star QB threw for over 330 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce both had big days. Hill had 11 receptions for 197 yards and Kelce had 6 receptions for 76 yards.
For as good as the offense, the defense had its struggles. Baker Mayfield threw for 328 yards and Nick Chubb averaged 5.5 yards per carry. This unit will have its hands full when going against an elusive runner like Lamar Jackson.
Another area of improvement for this team is the running game. Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed it 14 times for only 43 yards. He will look to be better in week 2.
The Ravens were a 4 point favorite against the Raiders on Monday Night Football, but they fell short 33-27 to Vegas. This was a game that Baltimore let slip away.
Unsurprisingly, Jackson was the lead runner for the Ravens. He rushed 12 times for 86 yards. I expect to see lots of nights like these given all the injuries in the backfield.
As a passer, Lamar was decent, but not great. He was 19/30 for 235 yards and 1 touchdown. He still missed open receivers at times.
The defense, which also had their fair share of injuries, started off the game well, but did not play a complete game. This unit did not have many answers for Derek Carr who went 34/56 for 435 yards and 2 touchdowns. If they had trouble with Vegas, I can only imagine what the Chiefs will do to them.
If this team does not figure things out soon, it is a very real possibility they could start the year 0-2.

4* Free Week 2 NFL Betting Prediction: Kansas City SU
Lamar Jackson has never beat a Patrick Mahomes-lead Chiefs team and I do not see that changing on Sunday night. I feel very confident with Kansas City winning this football game. I did consider picking them on the spread as 3.5 point favorites, but I will lay off of that. I just feel that the talent on Kansas City is too much for a banged up Ravens squad. If they could not put away the Raiders, I have no idea how they will take down the best team in the AFC. Give me the Chiefs here.
