2017 NFL Week 1 Prediction – Patriots vs. Chiefs

The first week of the NFL regular season is always a tough one to predict because the NFL Preseason does not give you any significant insight on how a team will perform for the rest of the season.

Some may call this pick a cop out as everyone and their mother knows that the Patriots will win this matchup. The current money line on the game is New England at -420. For those not familiar with Sports Betting it means that you have to bet $420 to win $100.

So here is the skinny on this game:

  • Matchup: Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots 
  • Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA 
  • Time: 8:30PM ET 

Odds from

Teams Spread     Money Line Total
451 Kansas City Chiefs +9 -10 +350 Over 48.5 -110
452 New England Patriots: -9 -110 -420 Under 48.2 -110

In this season opening game, the defending Super Bowl Champions Patriots(14-2 SU, 13-3 ATS, 6-10 O-U) are taking on the Kansas City Chiefs(12-4 SU, 9-7 ATS, 6-10 O/U) who are clearly the underdogs.

The Patriots will as always have a very strong offense. Despite Brady being 39 years old, he still has enough teams to perform well on the field. Even without Julian Edelman, it should not stop the Patriots from scoring.

On the other hand most sportsbook software companies agree that despite having to replace Dontari Poe and and needing a replacement for Maclin, the Chiefs are still a solid team that made it to the playoffs for the past two seasons.

Prediction: Take the Chiefs at -9
