Westgate opens Chiefs as three-point home favorites vs. Pats
Published on Sunday, 1/13/19, at 2:32 p.m. Eastern.
With New England absolutely blasting the Chargers by a 35-7 late in the second quarter, the Westgate SuperBook has already opened up betting for the AFC Championship Game.
The Las Vegas book opened the Chiefs as three-point home favorites with a total of 59. The tally has quickly been adjusted to 59.5 points.
These teams played an epic thriller in Foxboro earlier this season. Stephen Gotkowski’s 28-yard walk-off field goal lifted the Patriots to a 43-40 win as 3.5-point home ‘chalk.’ The Chiefs covered the number by the hook, while the 83 combined points jumped ‘over’ the 59.5-point total with 30 points scored in the final stanza.
Tom Brady completed 24-of-35 passes for 340 yards and one TD without an interception. Rookie RB Sony Michel ran for 106 yards and two TDs on 24 carries, while Rob Gronkowski had three receptions for 97 yards. Julian Edelman had four catches for 54 yards and one TD.
Patrick Mahomes hit 23-of-36 throws for 352 yards and four TDs, but he was intercepted twice. Tyreke Hill caught seven balls for 142 yards and three TDs.
Kansas City covered easily at home in yesterday’s lopsided victory over the Colts.
