Kansas City vs. L.A. Rams (NFL)

THE premier game of the season will be on display in primetime on Monday Night. Once schedule to be played in Mexico, the surface conditions were so bad that officials have since decided to move back to the United States and this has now become a TRUE home game for the Rams. Not that is has mattered much for the Rams in the series lately as Kansas City is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 matchups. Additionally, the Chiefs are 8-2 ATS on the season. If there is one liability for the Rams its their defense. Once in the Top 5 in defense, they slipped considerably the last 3 games allowing 34.1 PPG. Not a good sign with the second best scoring offense coming to town (KC is averaging 35.3). The fact that the line is at 3.5, gives credence to backing the Chiefs as Looney expects both teams to be able to score at will and the game to come down to a FG. In a game like this, it’s always best to start out with points rather than giving them away. Back the Chiefs. G/L – Looney

LOONEY’S TAKE: Kansas City +3
