NFL Week 1 Prediction – Lions vs Chiefs

NFL Week 1 Prediction - Lions vs ChiefsAfter months of waiting, the start of the 2023-24 NFL season is finally here! As a treat, the first game of the season will be a showdown between the Chiefs and the Lions. While the odds are in favor of the Chiefs, is it really a good bet? Let’s find out with our NFL Week 1 Prediction between the Lions and the Chiefs.

The first game of the NFL season will take place at 8:20 PM ET at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City Missouri. Thus, the Chiefs will have the home advantage with sportsbooks giving them a -225 money line and a-4.5 point spread. For those looking to bet on the over/under, the total is currently at 41.5.

In addition, the public betting is mostly on the Kansas City Chiefs as they are the defending champions. Especially since they are going against the Detroit Lions who did not make the playoff last year.  According to bookie software providers, sportsbooks saw the money line go through several shifts this week. At its highest it was at-310 and went as low as -184 before settling at -225.

The point spread saw a lot of changes as well going from 6.5 to 4.5. This is because of the news earlier this week that Chiefs tight-end Travis Kelce is suffering from a knee injury.  Therefore, it is still a mystery whether he will play tonight or not.

NFL Week 1 Prediction and Analysis – Lions vs Chiefs

There is a good reason why the NFL betting consensus is on the Chiefs to win this game. First, the Chiefs have won 2 of their last 4 Super bowls and are the favorite to win again this year. Second, they have Patrick Mahomes as their QB and is the best player in the league. Furthermore, he is coming off a career year in which he threw for 5,250 yards and 41 touchdowns.

On the other hand, the Detroit Lions will not go down without a fight. This year, they want to make the playoffs after barely missing it last season with a 9-8 record. In addition, the season they return with Jared Goff as their quarterback.

Therefore, bookies that know how to manage a successful football sportsbook have been keeping a close watch on their odds. This is because a slight delay in changing the odds could mean a loss in profit.

The Kansas City Chiefs have won 12 or more games in their last 6 of 7 seasons That is a remarkable feat to achieve and with this year’s lineup, one they will be able to easily repeat. Therefore, we predict the Kansas City Chiefs will win with a final score of 30-27.
