Patriots Huge Favorites vs. Chiefs, Who Start Backup QB Tyler Palko
We have a football betting update from Bodog on the Patriots Chiefs. They may well be our favorite online sportsbook with great prices and tight spreads. Whilst they love to write these sports betting previews we don’t always pay attention but as always any insight is helpful:
At least according to oddsmakers, tonight’s game between New England and visiting Kansas City should be the biggest mismatch of Week 11 as the Patriots are 15-point favorites over the Chiefs on Bodog’s NFL football odds. There will be live betting available, as there is on every “Monday Night Football” telecast.

Kansas City (4-5) has been a very up-and-down team this year, following a three-game losing streak to start the season with four wins in a row. But now the bad Chiefs have shown up again as they have dropped two straight and scored a total of 13 points. Last Sunday, the Chiefs were held to 258 total yards in a 17-10 loss to Denver and also lost starting QB Matt Cassel, possibly for the season, to a hand injury.
Lefty Tyler Palko, a second-year player who was undrafted out of Pittsburgh, replaced Cassel and went 5-for-6 for 47 yards and lead KC to a meaningless field goal. Palko, who has thrown 13 passes in his short NFL career and was actually cut from a UFL team, will make his first NFL start. He faces a New England defense that is No. 32 in the NFL in passing yards allowed and will be missing Pro Bowl cornerback Devin McCourty, who separated his shoulder last week.
The Patriots (6-3) ended a rare two-game losing streak last Sunday night with one of their best efforts of the season, a 37-16 win at the Jets. Tom Brady had his highest-rated game since Week 2, throwing for 329 yards, three touchdowns and no picks. Brady usually shines on “Monday Night Football,” going 11-4 in his career. However, the Chiefs are 2-0 on MNF under coach Todd Haley.
This is the first meeting between the Chiefs and Pats since the 2008 opener, when a low hit knocked Brady out for the season. The guy who replaced him? Matt Cassel, whose strong season led to Cassel being traded to Kansas City the following offseason when former Pats VP of player personnel Scott Pioli became the GM of the Chiefs.
Chiefs are 5-0 ATS in past five as a dog. Pats are just 3-15 ATS in past 18 as a road favorite of more than 10.5 points. But they are 5-1 ATS in past six vs. teams with a losing record.
