Chiefs at Panthers Week 10: Game preview, odds, prediction

The Carolina Panthers will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Week 10. Here is a game preview, the betting odds, and a final score prediction.

The Carolina Panthers will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon in Week 10. Kickoff from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte will be at 1:00 p.m. ET on November 13th. CBS will have the telecast.

Kansas City survived at home over the awful Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. The Chiefs have had a ton of injuries to key players, but enter Week 10 at 6-2 on the year. Kansas City isn’t sexy, but the Chiefs will be one of the top six teams in football at regular season’s end. Andy Reid might be the most underrated head coach in the NFL the last 15 years.

Carolina has won two straight games since its Week 7 bye. The Panthers have gotten back to a mediocre 3-5 record. Has this team found itself once again or have the Panthers only beaten bad NFC West teams?

Odds

Point Spread: Carolina -3
Moneylines: Carolina -165, Kansas City +145

According to OddsShark.com, the Panthers will be laying three points at home to the visiting Chiefs. The associated moneylines are Carolina -165 and Kansas City +145. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 44 points.

Here are the trends to know about the Chiefs: 1.) Kansas City is 3-6 against the spread in its last nine games. 2.) The Chiefs are 17-3 straight up in their last 20 games. 3.) They have gone under in six of their last seven games. 4.) Kansas City 7-3 straight up and against the spread in its last 10 road games.

Here are the trends to know with the Panthers: 1.) Carolina is 1-4-1 against the spread in its last six games. 2.) The Panthers are 18-7 straight up in their last 25 games, but only 2-4 straight up in their last six games. 3.) They have gone over in 17 of their last 25 games. 4.)

Las Vegas feels that these are two evenly matched teams playing on Sunday in Charlotte. Carolina gets the three-point edge in the spread for being the home team. What it could ultimately come down to is who plays tighter ball on Sunday. Which team makes the fewest mistakes?

It’s hard to play in Charlotte, but the Chiefs rarely beat themselves. Reid is more likely to mitigate ways that Kansas City could lose versus the way ‘Riverboat’ Ron Rivera coaches his football team. Kansas City forces a late turnover to edge Carolina out in Charlotte by a point.

Pick: Chiefs 21, Panthers 20
