Kansas City at Baltimore

Sunday 12/20 01:00 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Baltimore +7 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 2.86)  RESULT: LOSS

The Chiefs started the season at 1-5, then lost their top player in Jamaal Charles for the season. Since then, Kansas City has turned into a playoff team, having won seven straight games. The Chiefs defense has been the story as they have allowed 14.4 points per game in their last eight. The Ravens also started badly, but never recovered. Baltimore has endured the injury trifecta, losing their top wide receiver, top running back and quarterback, which pretty much ensured this team wasn't going to recover. The Ravens were dominated by Seattle last week, but overall this team has been highly competitive despite the 4-9 record. The Ravens have lost just one game by more than eight points on the season, and have lost six games by five points or less. This team continues to fight, and this is a franchise that has been the hardest to beat by more than one possession of any in the NFL for years. The Ravens have the fewest losses by more than one possession of any team in the NFL over the last 26 years. Here is a shocking stat: The Ravens have lost back-to-back games by more than eight points just nine times since 1989, and just once since 2006! This team comes to play every week, so take the points on Baltimore.
