Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens
The Chiefs went on the road to Buffalo last week and beat the Bills as underdogs, and they’ll be in a similar situation for this week’s trip to Baltimore. The Chiefs are 5-1 SU/4-2 ATS in their last six games and 11-2 SU in their last 13 road games. They are also 17-3 SU in their last 20 vs. the AFC and have had recent success against the Ravens, going 4-2 ATS in their last six matchups and 4-1 SU in their last five. The Chiefs are an impressive 16-4-1 ATS in their last 21 games as the underdog with 15 SU wins in those contests.
The Ravens rolled over the Texans last week and are 7-1 SU in their last eight games and 4-1 ATS in their last five. Their only loss during that stretch was when they rested their starters in the final week of the regular season. The Ravens are 4-1 SU in their last five home games and 5-0 SU in their last five games vs. the AFC West.
The over is 4-1 in the last five head-to-head meetings between these teams and 4-1 in the last five times they have played in Baltimore, but the under is 10-3 in the Ravens’ last 13 games in January and 4-1 in the Cheifs' last five games overall.
Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers
Both these teams won at home last week as favorites. The Lions also covered against the Bucs in a close that resulted in a 31-23 victory. Detroit is 5-1 SU/5-1 ATS in their last six games and an impressive 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games on the road. The Lions are also 17-4 ATS in their last 21 games as an underdog of four points or more.
The 49ers have dominated the recent matchups between these teams, going 10-0 SU in their last 10 home games vs. the Lions and 11-1 SU in their last 12 meetings overall. While they are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games, they are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games and 2-4 ATS in their last six overall.
The under is 4-1 in the 49ers’ last five games vs. the NFC North, but the over is 7-3 in the 49ers’ last 10 home games played on a Sunday. The over is also 8-3 in the Lions' last 11 games and 7-2 in their last nine Sunday games.
