Kansas City Chiefs Vs Philadelphia Eagles 9-19-2013 0 views

Andy Reid makes his return to Philly with a chance to stick it to his former employer. The Eagles have the #2 offense in the league 2 weeks into the season but it's the Chiefs at 2-0 have been the more balanced and complete team. With Alex Smith at QB now this team actually has a chance to be an above average offense. The Chiefs though have been winning with their defense! They have strong front 7 that I believe will give Michael Vick trouble on Thursday. Chip Kelly is running an offense that is more predicated to the college game. I see the Chiefs winning a thriller on Thursday to make Andy Reid's return to Philadelphia a memorable one!


A lot of KC love on here and I have to agree. I see Philly coming out strong again but this is the big boy NFL with two weeks of film now and a Stellar Chiefs defense so far this year.

It's far too early in 2013 to have these numbers hold much value but the Chiefs are right around #1-2 in defensive efficiency with Philly in the mid 20's including a #30 spot in Opponent YPG at 460.5

There is no doubt that the Eagles offense has more weapons, is better coordinated, is more efficient, and just plain has the ability to score more points. I will leave this post as I started it... this is the big boy NFL now for Chip and the difference between teams is minuscule all the way up and down the rankings.

I'm waiting till the very last minute to back the dog in this one to get the very best price I can on on a +3.5. Maybe I can even grab a +4 at one of the square shops.

I think 3.5 may be as square as you can get it. Most of the sharper books are holding at 3 with a little extra juice.
Pinny popped it to 3.5 -110 about an hour ago. Not too many books moved on it though. 5D just changed it but looks like KC is getting some love right now as everything is gravitating back to the 3. I may have to just suck it up and grab the +3.5 -115 on 5D as it seems like the best price I can get.
I originally was on the over but further research has me believing Reid will try to limit Eagles on offense by trying to run and sustain long drives when the chiefs have ball. Under!

Something else to keep in mind for all those on the fence about this game and others this week. Week 3 in the NFL has been typically one of the strongest showing for dogs on the 17 week schedule. 34-14 ATS (70.83%) going back 3 years. Reality is starting to take hold right now and people are letting go of their preseason thoughts/wishes. Some teams are outperforming and some underperforming where everyone thought they would be. Winning is always magnified much more then losing and teams that started slow will now start to show signs of life.

IMO this is one week where you should start by backing every dog this week and use your methods to lay the most convincing favorites or stay away from the play all together. I say go long on the dogs this week.

Very Impressive win by the Chiefs. The defense won this game with turnovers and 5 sacks on Michael Vick. Kansas City is playing like a team determined to turn it around this year and hopefully compete for a playoff spot.
