This Monday night, the Kansas City Chiefs will face the Baltimore Ravens in what should be a grand shootout. Betway has the OVER/UNDER at 53.5, which should easily hit when you have Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson in the same game. These are two of the best teams in the league and a high-scoring game is all but guaranteed. It seems like a sure-fire bet to bank on the OVER point totals.
Free Picks: Baltimore Ravens vs Kansas City Chiefs
Which MVP strikes first?
Mahomes and Jackson are like two sides of the same coin. They’re both fantastic, and you know they’re going to score a LOT of points. Across the first two games of the season, the Chiefs are averaging 28.5 points per game, while the Ravens are averaging 35.5. The Ravens are also currently the best first half team in the NFL, averaging 22 points through their first two games. 888sport has the FIRST HALF OVER/UNDER set at 26.5.
Even if you don’t watch much football, you probably know that Mahomes and Jackson are the cream of the crop and will deliver. Honestly, this one’s a no-brainer, and I’d be very shocked if the first half wasn’t heavy on the scoreboard.
FREE PICK: FIRST HALF POINTS 26.5 WILL HIT OVER
With Baltimore being the best first half team in the league at the moment, it isn’t far-fetched to think that they’ll come out of the gates red-hot. They’re also a really strong home team. Kansas City on the other hand is more of a comeback team. They tend to ramp it up in the second half, and are top ten in second half points this season, averaging 15.5. 888sport has a line of 2.32 for the Ravens to score first and win. That’s good value. They also have 3.70 for the Chiefs to score first and win.
Like I said, the Chiefs are more of a second half team, and I think Baltimore will flat-out win this one too.
