“Patrick Mahomes to record Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns & Chiefs to Win” Odds Boost!
DraftKings has an excellent Odds Boost in tonight’s Monday Night Football game. The bet of “Patrick Mahomes to record Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns & Chiefs to Win” has been boosted from +215 to +250!
The Kansas City Chiefs have been struggling over the last six weeks. Some of the reason for that was due to a banged-up Patrick Mahomes. Now a few weeks removed from that knee injury, Mahomes should be back near 100% and ready to get back to his MVP playing status. On the year, Mahomes has 18 touchdowns to just one interception in the eight games he has played in this season (including the Denver Broncos game where he was injured and left early).
Mahomes completed seven games this season and of those seven he has thrown for three or more touchdowns in five of those games. They won the first three of those games but lost their two most recent. Everyone across the NFL is talking about how the Chiefs appear to be taking a step back this season and things like that light a fire under people like Mahomes. I fully expect him to have a big game tonight as the Chiefs pick up a big win to get their season back on track.
The Chargers defense has been good against the pass this season but there are few teams as good as the Chiefs offense is. LA allowed two touchdown passes from Jacoby Brissett, two from Matthew Stafford, three from Deshaun Watson and two from Ryan Tannehill. The quarterbacks they didn’t allow multiple touchdowns to were Josh Rosen (currently benched), Joe Flacco (currently on IR), Devlin Hodges (third-string and benched), Mitchell Trubisky, Aaron Rodgers and Derek Carr. Aside from Rodgers, The Chargers have only shut down bad quarterbacks and struggled against the better ones like Watson and Stafford.
Mahomes has attempted at least 33 passes in every game he finished this season. Looking for a big win, I expect him to reach close to the 40 pass attempts mark in this game. He should certainly get three or more passing touchdowns in this game. As far as winning the game, that shouldn’t be an issue either as I expect them to win by at least a touchdown in this game. Roll with Patrick Mahomes to record Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns & Chiefs to Win for +250 for a nice payout tonight.
