Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

NFL Sportsbook Reviews Line: Philadelphia – 2.5

The Chiefs are expected to take a major step forward in their first year under Reid, as they added to an already talented sports betting roster that underachieved because of holes at key positions a year ago. Philadelphia is also expected to be better under new coach Chip Kelly, who will look to prove that he can succeed at the NFL level.

NFL Betting Preview: Kansas City Chiefs

The key area of concern for Kansas City was addressed when the team traded for quarterback Alex Smith, who is an obvious upgrade over anyone that started for the Chiefs a year ago. The team locked up Branden Albert at left tackle with the franchise tag and then drafted Eric Fisher first-overall to start on the right so the offensive line should be a strength, with running back Jamaal Charles looking to take full advantage. Kansas City added cornerbacks Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith and will have safety Eric Berry back after he missed most of last year injured, so the defense is also expected to be better.

NFL Betting Preview: Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles went 4-12 a year ago, Reid was fired, and Kelly was hired to return the franchise to the level of live betting play it showed at its peak under Reid. Kelly’s offense will push the tempo and attack defenses with their speed, which should be a perfect scheme with running back LeSeason McCoy and wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Michael Vick appears to be the best fit at quarterback and will need to really step up on offense, while the defense goes through a transition from the 4-3 to a 3-4 after a disappointing year.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Reid would like nothing more than to celebrate his return to Philadelphia with a big win in week three, and he has all of the weapons to get the job done. Kansas City is in line to take a major step forward this year and should be a legitimate contender under Reid, who will earn a sort of redemption by getting the job done in his first game back.
