Chiefs Upswing

The New England Patriots have been getting a lot of media attention because they won seven games in a row after starting the season 2-4. However, after the clutch OT win on Thursday Night Football, the Chiefs won seven games in a row and improved to 10-4 on the season. Mahomes unleashed 410 passing yards and three touchdowns. Tight end Travis Kelce had a monster game and his best output of the season with 10 receptions for 191 yards and two touchdowns.

The Chiefs were one of the preseason favorites to win the Super Bowl at +500 odds, but they stumbled out of the gate. They started 3-4 and saw their championship odds plummet to +1400 at the end of Week 8. Since that low point, the Chiefs saw their odds gradually increase every week during their winning streak. The Chiefs were +650 odds two weeks ago, and Super Bowl co-favorites last week with the Bucs at +500, before taking over the top spot on the futures board at +450.

Aside from last night’s game in which they gave up 28 points against Justin Herbert and the high-flying Chargers, the Chiefs saw their defense vastly improve over the month of November. The Chiefs held opponents to nine or fewer points in four out of their five previous games. Since Week 9, they outgunned their opponents 163-48.

See Ya Next Year?

Bookies took a couple of team off the futures board including the New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, and Detroit Lions. Then again, all four of those crappy teams should’ve been taken off the board at the start of the season.

The two-win Jaguars finally severed their relationship with Urban Meyer and fired the first-year head coach after he lost the locker room and acted like a fool most of the season.

The LOL Jets looked just as bad this season as they did last season. They ditched Adam Gase, but Robert Saleh has not done any better in his first season as a head coach.
