Read Full Article: Chiefs-Patriots betting lines and point spread updates for ‘Sunday Night Football’

By David Fucillo - SB NATION -

We get a potential playoff preview in Week 6 Sunday Night Football. We’ve got odds and will be updating them leading up to kickoff of this Week 6 matchup.

The NFL heads into Week 6 of the 2018 regular season with a potential AFC playoff preview in primetime. The 3-2 New England Patriots host the 5-0 Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football in Week 6. Patrick Mahomes has passed every test this season, but the Chiefs shaky defense faces a tough test in Tom Brady.

The line opened with the Patriots installed as a 3.5 point favorite. Some sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark have brought the line down to a field goal, but there has otherwise not been much movement. The point total is installed at 59, which is the highest in the NFL this season. Given the quality offenses and shaky defenses in play here, it is probably still worth betting the over!

Early month is on the Chiefs and the over, with OddsShark tracking 56 percent of point spread money and 61 percent of the point total money on those markers. The Chiefs remain unbeaten against the spread, but face some notable injuries heading into the practice week. Edge rusher Justin Houston suffered a hamstring injury and was ruled out the rest of the game after halftime. The team also placed right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif on injured reserve with a broken leg.

This marks the third time in four seasons the Chiefs and Patriots have faced off at Gillette Stadium. They split the past two matchups, both straight up and against the spread.
