The Kansas City Chiefs look to extend their dominance at home with a ninth straight outright victory when they welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to town on Sunday afternoon for an NFL Week 9 betting matchup at Arrowhead Stadium.
– Shark Bites
- The favored team is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last five games in this matchup.
- The Chiefs are 0-5 ATS in their last five games at home against teams with losing records.
- The Jaguars are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road after failing to cover in their most recent road game.
The 5-2 Chiefs return home following a 30-14 rout of Indianapolis last weekend. While Kansas City easily covered as 2.5-point road favorites against the Colts, the team has struggled at the sportsbooks, failing to cover in consecutive games since Week 13 of last season. The Chiefs are also just 1-6 ATS in their past seven when pegged as favorites by seven or more points.
The Jaguars are coming off a pair of brutal losses to Oakland and Tennessee, losing by an average margin of 15.5 points. The team’s current swoon snuffs out the glimmer of hope provided by an earlier two-game SU win streak. Jacksonville has been particularly bad on the road, losing 18 of 20 SU, and covering in just one of their past six.
While the 2-5 Jaguars have failed to top 17 points on four occasions this season, the OVER has been a reliable total betting wager since last year, going 9-4 in their past 13. Jacksonville has also lost two straight to the Chiefs by double-digit margins, and has failed to cover in their past three meetings.
