The Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens meet in the week 3 installment of Monday Night Football in NFL action from M&T Bank Stadium.
The Kansas City Chiefs will look to build off of a 23-20 win over the Chargers to improve to 2-0 this season. Patrick Mahomes has thrown for 513 yards and 5 touchdowns on 64.6% passing. Clyde Edwards-Helaire has rushed for 176 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 35 carries. Tyreek Hill leads the Chiefs with 145 receiving yards on 10 catches while Travis Kelce has a team-high 15 catches for 20 for the KC receiving group this year. Defensively, Anthony Hitchens leads KC with 17 total tackles with including 11 solo tackles while Chris Jones has 1.5 sacks for the Chiefs this year.
The Baltimore Ravens will also look to stay at 2-0 after picking up a 33-16 win over Houston last tme out. Lamar Jackson has thrown for 479 yards and 4 touchdowns on 77.6% passing while also rushing for a team-high 99 yards. Gus Edwards has 89 rushing yards with a double while Mark Ingram has 84 yards on the ground as well. Marquise Brown leads Baltimore’s receiving group with 143 receiving yards with 10 catches on 12 targets. Willie Snead IV has 93 receiving yards while Mark Andrews also has 87 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns for Baltimore this season. Defensively, Patrick Queen leads the Ravens with 17 total tackles, including 11 solo tackles this season.
Kansas City is 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 road games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog. Baltimore is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite.
I’m not worried about the Chiefs because if we’re being honest, they probably had one eye on the game they were playing, the other eye was on Baltimore. The lack of a full stadium I think hurts Baltimore here is that they can’t feed off of the energy of one of the home fans and that could end up being the difference here. I could make a case for either but I think I’ll take the over as I see this being a 31-28 game no matter how you slice it.
