A divisional showdown will take place in Week 18 on Saturday as the Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Mile High to face the Denver Broncos.
These teams played earlier this season on December 5th in Kansas City. The Chiefs won a low scoring 22-9 game for their fifth straight victory.
Which team will come out atop in their season finale?
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City dropped a crucial game last week on the road and fell to the Cincinnati Bengals 34-31. The loss handed the top spot in the AFC to the Tennessee Titans and the Chiefs are no longer in the driver seat for home field advantage.
The Chiefs led 14-0, 21-7 and 28-14 in the first half. They were ahead 28-17 at halftime before the Bengals began the latest of several second-half surges this season. Kansas City’s offense was stifled after the break and scored just 3 points.
Patrick Mahomes had a solid performance but was outplayed by Burrow in statistical regards. Mahomes finished 26/35 passing for 259 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Darrel Williams carried a team high 14 times for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Kansas City will need to win and have Tennessee to lose to retake the lead atop the AFC.
Denver dropped their third straight game and officially was eliminated from playoff contention last week. The Broncos were outplayed from start to finish and fell on the road to the Chargers 34-13.
You can’t tell from the stat sheet but the Broncos offense couldn’t get anything going due to converting just 3 of 11 third down conversions. Drew Lock completed 18/25 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown. Tight End Noah Fant was far and away the teams leading receiver with 6 catches for 92 yards and a touchdown.
The Broncos offense continued to be the teams Achilles heal as they have scored 13 or less points in every game during the losing streak. This has been the case the last few years as Denver continues to struggle with quarterback inconsistency.
Denver currently has the 13th overall pick in the upcoming draft with tiebreakers over a few other 7-9 teams. I expect John Elway will have his eyes set on several quarterbacks in this draft to keep their divisional foes which have Mahomes, Herbert, and Carr.
NFL Betting Trends:
- The Chiefs are 8-8 ATS this season
- The Chiefs OVERS are 9-7 this season

4* Free Week 18 NFL Betting Prediction: Chiefs -10.5 & UNDER 45
I expect this game to go along the same lines as they have the last few years which is the Chiefs rolling the Broncos. Kansas City is far away the better team in this matchup and have much more to play for than the Broncos do.
Kansas City is in tune up time for a playoff run and will use this game as a get right spot after dropping a close one last week in Cincinnati. The Chiefs will be tested by the Broncos defense but they’ll still put up far more points than the miserable Denver offense.
The Broncos can’t score and that will continue in the season finale at home.
Take the Chiefs to win easy and this game to go under as Denver won’t light up the scoreboard.
