Tennessee at Kansas City - NFL Week 4 Preseason Game Preview and Pick

BetAnySports Points Spread: Kansas City: -3.5

 

BetAnySports Total Line: 38

 

The last week of NFL preseason action features the Tennessee Titans traveling to face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium at 8:30 PM (ET).

 

Tennessee at Kansas City Game Preview

 

The Kansas City Chiefs feature a 1-2 record in their games and against the spread including a dismal 10-point loss at home against the 49ers. They surged back with strong performances both offensively and defensively against the Bengals before losing on the road in Seattle. The Chiefs has two games OVER the BetAnySports total and one UNDER.

 

Traditionally the fourth week of preseason is the battle of the backups. The Chiefs are expected to start Patrick Mahomes and give their bench a chance to impress. While Alex Smith is still the man in Kansas City, Mahomes has shown himself to be a dynamic playmaker, completing 25 passes for 207 yards with another 31 yards on the ground.

 

The situation in Kansas City is mirrored by the Tennessee Titans in many ways. The Titans have a statement win against the Panthers sandwiched between head-scratching losses to an advancing Chicago team and the hapless New York Jets. BetAnySports favorites in all three games, the total stayed UNDER in both losses while they covered the spread and went OVER the total against Carolina.

 

Perhaps due to their poor play against the Bears, Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey has stated the starters will play against the Chiefs. The Titans have a loaded offense that has struggled in two of their three preseason outings. You can expect to see at least a series or two from third-year quarterback Marcus Mariota. He has thrown 20 completions for 269 yards and rushed 4 times for 27 yards in his three preseason appearances.

Despite their talent, the Titans that showed up against the Jets and Bears aren’t going to beat the second or third string. While it’s tempting to go with the team that’s playing its starters, the smart money is on the Chiefs with BetAnySports’ reasonable line.
