Kansas City Chiefs Come Back Home As 7-Point Favorites Over Arizona Cardinals

The Kansas City Chiefs move on from their Week 10 loss to the Denver Broncos and look forward to Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals who, like the Broncos when they faced the Chiefs, are on a four-game losing streak. The Chiefs enter the game as a touchdown favorite (depending on where you look).

That's the fifth biggest line of the week depending on where you look. Seven points in the NFL is a big win as a good chunk of the games are decided by seven points or less.

What's interesting is that the San Diego Chargers are a whopping nine point favorites over the Denver Broncos despite Denver's blowout victory against the Chiefs. When KC traveled to Denver, they were one point favorites depending where you looked. That should show you how Vegas views the Chargers.

The Chiefs really should win this game, and I say that with more confidence than the Broncos game. Denver entered with a potent offense so KC knew they could score some points. The Cardinals meanwhile have QB troubles and the 23rd ranked offense. The defense is worse coming in at dead last in the league. In their four-game losing streak, the Cardinals have given up 36, 27, 38 and 22 points. If the Chiefs can reach any of those amounts, i feel confident they can win.

The only lines that are bigger in Week 11: New Orleans Saints over Seattle Seahawks (10.5), San Diego Chargers over Denver Broncos (9), Baltimore Ravens over Carolina Panthers (10), Pittsburgh Steelers over Oakland Raiders (7.5),
