On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 25.4 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 24.6 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.

As the reigning AFC West champions, a successful title defense is a priority for the Kansas City Chiefs right now. By doing so, they’ll seal a playoff spot and a more favorable tie at home.

Tennessee Titans Form

Form is really looking good for the Tennessee Titans after claiming a 10-17 win against Houston Texans last week. The victory extended their winning streak to five matches, improving their regular season record to 5-2. They are also 3-1 on the road.

The Tennessee Titans offense seems to have kicked things up a notch lately. Despite posting only 18.9 points for the season, the offensive unit has put 21.0 points on board in the last five matches alone. On the defensive side of the ball, there has been no letup whatsoever. The visitors boast one of the stingiest defenses in the entire country, allowing just 19.7 points per game for this season, and have remained formidable in the past five games, having only given up 15.2 points on average.

Making the playoffs should be the bare minimum expected of this team.

Against the Spread

The oddsmakers currently have the hosts down as -10.5 point favorites over the Tennessee Titans in the Week 9 betting lines. The last five rounds between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tennessee Titans have been rather one-sided, with an average winning margin of up to 12.6 points.

The hosts have failed to cover the spread in their last three games and counting at the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Considering the hosts have only covered the spread in half of their past 10 home rounds, they seem a bit too 50/50 for our liking here, especially as they are also 5-5 ATS in the last 10 overall.

Even away from home, the Tennessee Titans (2.08) look too good to pass up on the spread. Backing the visitors has paid off in each of their last five games, and we’re tempted to go down this route. The visitors are 3-2 ATS from their 10 most recent road trips, as well as 7-3 ATS in their last ten games overall.

The total has gone under in four of Kansas City Chiefs’ last five games on their home turf. Games at the GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium don’t always seem to produce the expected number of points, as the total has gone under in three of the past eight matchups home matches for the Kansas City Chiefs.
