On today’s “Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell,” RJ gives you his Best Bet for NFL Week 13. Coming off a bye, many are riding high on the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes. But this week they face the stingy Denver Broncos defense, and with a 9.5 point spread to cover, RJ thinks this is a tall task for Kansas City’s offense, which has struggled at points this season.
RJ Bell: “Everyone is raving about Andy Reid and the Chiefs coming off a bye, but the Chiefs this season have been really bad at covering the spread. They win, but they never cover. Vic Fangio is a defensive guru, and he runs that 2 high safety package which has been the Chief’s kryptonite this year. I think Denver is built to defend Kansas City at this point. Everyone thinks the Chiefs are back, but they’ve only scored more than 20 points once in the last 7 games. 9.5 points is a lot to cover, so this is a no-brainer.”
