KC is 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games in September and 2-7 ATS in their last nine after an ATS loss. The Chiefs are 1-4 ATS in their last five as a road favorite as well.
Meanwhile, the Ravens are 4-0 ATS in their last four on turf and 5-1 ATS in their last six as an underdog. Baltimore is also 7-2 ATS in their last nine overall.
PICK: I’m probably going to stick with the Chiefs, but staying away. Kansas City certainly has some issues to address from their opening week win, but they also did a lot of things well. The Chiefs put up 324 passing yards with 6.5 yards per play, but also gave up 457 yards total to the Browns on an 8.2-yard-per-play clip.
As for Baltimore, they gave up a whopping 408 passing yards in the Monday loss, and also lost a pair of fumbles. The Ravens have some positives to build on, but I don’t like them enough on a cover just yet.
