Against The Spread Pick
The Kansas City Chiefs are ready to rock ‘n’ roll with year 2 quarterback Patrick Mahomes as they head into Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars. The Chiefs stormed out of the gate in 2018 as Mahomes rightly earned an “Elite QB” classification as he threw for 50 touchdowns. Everybody should expect the fireworks to continue in Week 1 of the new season especially with Tyreek Hill back and starting. Don’t panic if the Jaguars take a lead early in the game with new quarterback Nick Foles. Mahomes will take care of the game in the 4th quarter. The Chiefs are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games in September as well as 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games. Give me the Chiefs and let Mahomes do what he does best. Win Everybody Money.
Over Under Pick
The Jacksonville offense does not have anything like the flair of the Chiefs and that gives the Under a nice look here. The Jaguars can easily prove something in Week 1 by slowing down Mahomes and I do see that a bit. However, can they last all four quarters against him? No. Looking at the trends, the Under is 3-0 in the last three meetings between these two teams. Kansas City can easily still drop 30 points and still have this game hit the Under with the lackluster offense of the Jaguars. The Under is 5-0 in Jaguars last 5 home games as well as 7-1 in Jaguars last 8 games on grass. Give me the Under here!
