KANSAS CITY CHIEFS @ MIAMI DOLPHINS

The overachieving Miami Dolphins who’re deep in the playoff hunt welcome the World Champs to Florida with the Chiefs riding a 7 game winning streak and having already secured the AFC West will be looking to pile more pressure on the Steelers who they’re battling with for the sole bye week given to the conference winners.

Miami made light work of the Bengals last week, holding them to just 7 points making it back to back weeks this impressive Miami D have kept the opposition to a single digit score, something that against this Chiefs offense is about as close to impossible as it gets in professional sport. Tua returned to lead the Miami offense last week and played well throwing for almost 300 yards and a TD, but will have to be careful against this playmaking Chiefs defense which have played their part in the Chiefs leading the league in turnover differential. Where the Chiefs can be got at is in the run game as shown by Melvin Gordon last week as he ran for over 130 yards on just 15 carries, and with Myles Gaskin coming off of a 21 carry, 90 yard game against the Bengals I’d expect him to be fed the ball again here.

Kansas were made to sweat by Denver on SNF but ultimately proved too strong and came out on top 22-16. Denver played some good pass defense, as they have all season, keeping Mahomes to only one TD pass, Mahomes has only been kept to one TD pass in a game twice this season both times against Denver. This explosive Chiefs offense will be tested against Miami’s pass D which has quietly been one of the best in the NFL.

Miami can cause the Chiefs problems and they’re a very good side but I don’t see Tua being able to put up enough points against a good Chiefs defense for Miami to win this game.

As for my best bets we’re looking at Travis Kelce, the big TE has 8 TD’s this season and one in each of his two previous games with Miami and at a best price evens to find the Endzone in this game we’ll be backing it.

PREDICTION: CHIEFS 30 โ€“ 17 MIAMI

BEST BET: Travis Kelce ANYTIME TD โ€“ EVENS with SpreadEx. 0.5 point bet. ย
