Best Bet 9/7/2023

Detroit Lion(ML) @ Kansas City Chiefs

DK +180

FD +188

NFL Best Bet Season Record: 0-0


NOW. This probably seems unhinged. It sort of is, but there is logic rooted in this bet. As I've written in my AFC West preview, Chris Jones is holding out and the defense is terrible when he's playing out of position but at least still playing. They might be the worst unit in the NFL if he's not on the field at all and that's not great when you're facing a team with arguably the best Offensive Line in the whole NFL. If the spread was further out, I'd say just grab Lions to cover, but no Chris Jones, no Travis Kelce, Lions straight up at +180 is juicy.

Without Kelce the Chiefs will still be productive, but will lack the presence of a hall of fame pass catcher. The Chiefs also have a great offensive line, with the strength being the interior, and that may allow Aidan Hutchinson to eat off the edge. Skyy Moore and Kadarius Toney, and maybe even Justyn Ross are going to have to pick up a ton of slack, and its for sure possible. I'd also hammer the Over on this game, just because while the Lions defense has improved via free agency and the draft, its still sub-par nad its Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid. This game's going to be fun but I think the Lions might end up running for over 200 yards in this game with how poor the Chiefs defense is without Chris Jones.

Let's have an NFL Best Bet
