Despite starting quarterback Drew Lock holding a 2-0 record and coming off a 38-24 destruction of the Texans in Houston Sunday, the oddsmakers still aren’t giving Denver much respect. They come into Sunday’s game at a suddenly powerful Kansas City as double-digit underdogs. The Chiefs’ defense was much maligned early this season, but they have recently come around under coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, allowing an average of 14 points over their last three games – wins against New England, Oakland, and the LA Chargers. Offensively, the Chiefs are what they are – averaging over 28 points per game and nearly 400 yards on offense. Denver’s average point total is nearly 10 less at 18.2 per game, but they have scored 23 and 38 under Lock. The Chiefs clinched the AFC West last week against the Patriots, but they have a chance at a first-round bye, so don’t expect them to rest over the season’s final three weeks. They are 25-2 against AFC West opponents since 2015, going 20-7 against the spread in those games. However, Denver has been on a hot streak against the spread, going 7-2 ATS over their last nine games.
