The Kansas City Chiefs had some time off and they’ll be going into Monday Night Football in Week 8 as the betting favorites. The Week 8 NFL odds have the Chiefs as a 7.5-point favorite over the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chiefs hold a two game lead over Denver right now so this is a pretty big game in the early divisional standings. A win by the Chiefs and they bump the Broncos to three games back which is tough to come back from with eight to play. A win by the Broncos and this is a division again with the Chiefs having a tough game in Dallas against the Cowboys the week after.
Frankly, the Chiefs should be the heavy favorites in this game after seeing the Chargers blank the Broncos, 21-0. That doesn’t mean the Chiefs are going to destroy Denver but it shows that Denver is capable of those lows. Seven points seems a little high but the Chiefs just lost their first AFC West game in a couple of years last week. Their track record against divisional opponents is strong which Vegas is taking into account.
