The Packers are 7-0 ATS in their last seven overall and 6-0 ATS in their last six after an ATS win. Green Bay is 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 11-23-1 ATS in their last 35 in November.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 as a favorite and 4-14 ATS in their last 18 overall. Kansas City is 1-4 ATS versus a team with a winning record as well.
PICK: I’m going to take Green Bay. The Packers weren’t terribly dominant against the Cardinals, but still were able to pull off the win. Green Bay put up 335 total yards with 24 first downs and 4.7 yards per play. Arizona averaged 6.1 yards had went 2-for-2 on fourth downs, but the seven penalties and three turnovers really hurt the Cardinals.
As for the Chiefs, they’ve been uncharacteristically spotty this year and are difficult to trust right now. In Monday’s game Kansas City coughed up 12 penalties and two turnovers in a fortunate win. Seems like the Packers are the better play on a cover.
