Chiefs vs Broncos NFL
The Chiefs are currently riding a 13-game winning streak against their AFC West rival Broncos. Denver last beat Kansas City in September 2015 with Peyton Manning as QB.
Kansas City’s 5-game winning streak was snapped in Week 13 by the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24, the Chiefs’ third loss to them in the calendar year. QB Patrick Mahomes had a light day by his standards with 223 yards passing and 2 TDs while TE Travis Kelce had a fumble in the 4th quarter.
Denver is on a 4-game losing skid with their most recent loss against the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos boast the NFL’s 2nd-best scoring defense (17 PPG), but the league’s worst offense (13.8 PPG).

Prediction Chiefs vs Broncos NFL
Chiefs 24, Broncos 9
One day Denver will snap its losing streak against Kansas City, but Sunday won’t be that day. The Broncos have by far the worst offense in the league and lost their top receiver in Sutton. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming off a disappointing loss which means they will be looking to take their frustrations out on their division rival.
The bet is obviously the Chiefs, but avoid the moneyline as the payout is not worth the risk.
