The best bet of the NFL week is the Kansas City Chiefs (+10) points over the Denver Broncos.
Before you shake your head in disgust or wonder if I am hopped up on turkey, hear me out.
The Chiefs are a home divisional underdog which is always a good angle to bet on. It gets even more interesting when that home team is a double-digit underdog.
Betting on a double-digit home underdog has been a bankroll builder over the last three seasons. Check out this stat: Home underdogs of eight or more points are 22-2 ATS over the past three years.
That is an amazing stat, but this is the Chiefs, the one-win, seven-game losing streak Chiefs.
However it should be noted that when playing top teams in the NFL, the Chiefs actually put up a fight. The Chiefs took the Steelers to the wire in Pittsburgh, stayed within three-points of the Baltimore Ravens, and beat the New Orleans Saints.
The Chiefs are 4-1 ATS in the last five games against a team with a winning record and they are the best bet of the week.
Best Bet: Chiefs +10
