NFL Betting Tips: Back the Chiefs to snare Lions in this 5/1 treble

Detroit can't stop Pat Mahomes. No one can.


Amazingly, we’re at Week 4 already. Your hopes and dreams may well be crushed, or if for whatever reason you’re a Buffalo Bills fan, you’ve been pleasantly surprised.

Last week wasn’t great after a very solid fortnight to open the season, but I’m confident we’ll bounce back here as the top sides completely separate themselves from the pack.

All I need is trust, baby. We’re onto one.

Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5) @ Detroit Lions – 9/10

You know that term ‘ride or die’? I will ride this Mahomes train until one of us dies. But until that day comes, Kansas City on the spread.

Never has there been a quarterback with more ice in his veins at such a young age than this guy. He’s a superstar, but Andy Reid’s deceptive offence is his perfect companion.

There are four options on every play and the initial read is always very quick, meaning he can scan with quickly before finding the open receiver.

The deep ball keeps defences honest. Kelce draws linebackers and receivers in the slot and at X tend to run concepts where one affects the other.

This is the perfect offence and the weather won’t be a hindrance this week as they enter a dome in the Motor City.

Minnesota Vikings (+2.5) @ Chicago Bears – 4/5

To be honest, Mitch Trubisky’s only comfort on Monday night was Taylor Gabriel. The primary reason for that being that Washington don’t have a slot corner.

Minnesota do.

They’ve also got a running back who benefits from massive gaps, which will keep the immense pass rush belonging to Chicago in check.

Mack won’t be making a beeline for the quarterback if Cook is on hand to run right through the rush.

While Cousins isn’t exactly setting the league alight, he is very much on watch, and won’t be throwing the ball into tight windows anymore. His mistake came at the right time of the season, and caution is the best approach here.

They’re a better team than Chicago. That much, I assure you. There’s too many intelligent football players in this secondary not to jump on a ball that takes too long to come out of Trubisky’s hands.

Make him play quarterback and you will beat him.

Seattle Seahawks (-5) @ Arizona Cardinals – 20/23

Death. Taxes. And Russell Wilson’s Seahawks overachieving. Kyler Murray looks more like Lamar Jackson last season than Pat Mahomes at this point and the Seahawks can eliminate his biggest strength – mobility.

Think about it.

What’s better placed to tackle Murray’s scrambles than a defence who play against Russell Wilson at practice every day?

Tyler Lockett is making his way into the top tier of receivers, while their run game is more dynamic than it has been in previous years. Not everything is between or outside the tackles – there’s variety in this offensive scheme and that wasn’t always the case in Seattle.

A running back committee doesn’t suit everyone, but it does seem to work well in Pete Carroll’s playbook.

A treble on these bets pays out at over 5/1
