Injury Update

Two of the heavyweights in the AFC go toe-to-toe in Kansas City as the Titans visit Arrowhead Stadium and the Chiefs.

Titans vs. Chiefs Odds and Betting Analysis

The early Titans vs. Chiefs odds have Kansas City as more than a touchdown favorite, which is a bit of a surprise. The Titans were one of the top NFL teams last season, and when they played the Chiefs head-to-head, Tennessee won easily.

The game is in Kansas City this time around, which should influence your Titans vs. Chiefs betting analysis. Both these teams have also lost their best wide receivers from last year – A.J. Brown with the Titans and Tyreek Hill with the Chiefs.

Rivalry History

These are old original AFL teams that saw their rivalry cool considerably when they moved to different divisions after the AFL-NFL merger. However, thanks to a couple of postseason games in recent years, the rivalry is running hot again.

Following the 2017 regular season, they met in the AFC Wild Card, and Marcus Mariota led the Tennessee Titans to the 22-21 win. Following the 2019 season, they played in the AFC Championship Game, and Kansas City won, 35-24.

Overall they have played each other 55 times in their history, with the Chiefs winning 30 of those. Although Tennessee has won five of the last six.

Matchup Trends

The NFL schedule will play a big role in the final Titans vs. Chiefs odds. Kansas City has its bye the week before they host Tennessee, and thanks to head coach Andy Reid, no NFL team is better when coming off a bye.

Tennessee has its bye earlier in October and will play in Kansas City after two divisional games – at home against the Colts and on the road vs. the Texans.

Both teams expect to be back at the top of the NFL standings in 2022, and that will largely hinge on quarterback play. Derrick Henry is the engine in Tennessee, but Ryan Tannehill must be a complement to his ground game.

For the Chiefs, it’s all about Patrick Mahomes adjusting to life without Hill.

Venue Information

The Kansas City Chiefs play their home games at Arrowhead Stadium, which is part of the Truman Sports Complex, which shares a parking lot with the home of the Kansas City Royals.

Arrowhead Stadium holds the Guinness World Record for being the loudest outdoor stadium, hitting 142.2 decibels in a Monday night game against the New England Patriots in 2014.

Arrowhead Stadium turned 50 years old in August, and in their history, at Arrowhead, the Chiefs are 233-155-1 in the regular season and 9-8 in the playoffs.

Betting Tips for Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs

When doing your final Titans vs. Chiefs betting analysis, spend some time focusing on how the Chiefs are running the ball. The gaudy NFL stats are put up by Mahomes, but the Chiefs struggled to add a good running game into the mix, and ultimately it cost them last year. 

When the Chiefs lost to Tennessee last year, they ran for just 77 yards. When the Titans won in 2019, they outgained the Chiefs on the ground 225-97.

Something else to consider when looking at the final Titans vs. Chiefs odds is how each team is doing as an NFL pick against the spread. Kansas City wins a lot of games, but in 2021 they were just 10-10 against the spread, including the postseason. The Titans were 10-8 against the spread in 2021.

Another thing in informing the Titans vs. Chiefs odds is how both teams do in shared NFL matchups. Tennessee plays the Bills, Raiders, and Colts prior to going to Kansas City, and the Chiefs will also have also played those three teams prior to Week 9.
