The Chiefs are putting up a stupendous 35.3 points per game this season rank second to New Orleans in scoring and just ahead of the Rams (33.5 ppg). Kansas City has won four straight games including their easy 26-14 win over Arizona on Sunday. Patrick Mahomes tossed two TD passes to fleet-footed wide receiver Tyreek Hill in a game that saw the Cardinals put up a big-time effort.
“It was definitely a grind out there,” running back Kareem Hunt said, “and definitely a team that was trying to come up big in a big-time win to get their program back on track, but most importantly we got the win.”
The Rams have gone 5-0 SU at home this season and they’ve got a slight edge on Kansas City on the defensive side of the ball where they limit the opposition to 23.1 points per game to Kansas City’s 24.0 points per game allowed. Los Angeles rebounded from their only loss of the season in Week 9 by beating Seattle 36-31 in a back-and-forth affair on Sunday as Jared Goff threw two TD passes and Todd Gurley rushed for 120 yards one touchdown on 16 carries.
Expert Pick and Prediction
For this huge Week 11 showdown, I’m going to advise you to back the Kansas City Chiefs to get the outright road win and ATS cover in a contest that definitely looks like it could come down to the final possession or two for both teams. Kansas City is a bankroll-boosting 8-2 ATS this season while the Rams are a discouraging 4-5-1 ATS.
Los Angeles has failed to cover the spread in three straight while going 1-4 ATS over their last five and 1-5-1 ATS over their last seven. The Chiefs are an unblemished 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record, a pristine 4-0 ATS n their last five games against a team with a winning record and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall.
The Rams are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games against a team with a winning road record, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record. I like Kansas City in a high-scoring affair.
Predicted Score Kansas City Chiefs 35 | Los Angeles Rams 31
