The Kansas City Chiefs hope to build on their three-game winning streak to remain in the AFC West division race. The Kansas City Chiefs have won nine straight regular season home games. Alex Smith is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 1,638 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Smith has one or less touchdown passes in four of his last six games. Travis Kelce and Jeremy Maclin have combined for 753 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Spencer Ware has 17 receptions.

The Jaguars are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Chiefs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November. The Jaguars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Chiefs have been a different team since coming off their bye week and seem to have found their groove that made them a scary playoff team last season. The Jaguars showed flashes of promise early but have fizzled out recently and now look like a young team with little confidence. Despite the lack of covers, Kansas City is also very good on its home field with nine straight victories. This is a lot of points to lay, but given their current forms, the Chiefs should win by double digits.
