Week 13 NFL Picks – Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs Odds November 30, 2014

0 Comments

The Kansas City Chiefs can learn anything or two from the Denver Broncos about bouncing back from the humbling NFL Picks loss. The Broncos shook off their ugly loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 11 and announced their return to make by taking care of the Miami Dolphins the following week. The Chiefs had their own embarrassing defeat when these were whipped last Thursday by a then winless Oakland Raiders team.

NFL Picks week 13Will the Chiefs tie Denver atop the AFC West? Or will the Broncos create even more breathing room by hurdling Kansas City?

The Oakland Raiders’losing binge has to end at some point. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, it came at their own expense. Kansas City instantly became a trivia answer on Sunday once the team suffered a 24-20 loss to the Raiders, who snapped a 16-game winless streak.

The Chiefs were doomed in that game because their offense that was supposed to overwhelm Oakland from the get-go arrived late. The Chiefs scored just three points in the first half before turning heat on in the second half, where they scored 17 points. They even successfully grabbed the lead in the last period until Derek Carr threw a touchdown pass to James Jones with under two minutes left in the clock.

Alex Smith led the comeback of the Chiefs in the second half, where he threw for 186 yards and two touchdowns. Jamaal Charles, meanwhile, rushed just for 80 yards from the Raiders after setting up 159 versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 11. Smith and Charles got some assistance, though, from Travis Kelce and Dwayne Bowe, who had 67 and 42 receiving yards, respectively.

Charles needs most of the help he can have on offense next Sunday, as he’ll be up against a Denver team that’s been the best in stopping opposing teams’rushing game. The Broncos are second in the league in rushing yards allowed per game with an average of 75.5. The Chiefs, however, might be getting a break as Denver is currently coping with injuries to some of its key defensive players like cornerback Aqib Talib and linebacker Brandon Marshall.

On defense, the Chiefs are No.1 in the NFL when it comes to limiting their opponents’passing yards (198.9 per game). Justin Houston, Dontari Poe, and Allen Bailey will be the Chiefs’top pass rushers with 13, 5, and 4 sacks, respectively.

The Chiefs are 4-0 SU/ATS in their last four home games. Week 13 NFL Picks I’m betting on Kansas City.
