In Week 9, the Green Bay Packers will travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The game will take place on Sunday afternoon.

This should be a good game between two explosive offensives. In this matchup, NFL live odds should offer bettors some great value throughout the game.

Here are some of the best bets for the Packers at Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs: Can They Win at Home?

Let’s start with the Chiefs. They opened their 2021 season with some tough opponents: the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, and a divisional rival, the Los Angeles Chargers.

It’s not that the Chiefs didn’t play well in losses to the Ravens and Chargers, but they just didn’t come up with the win.

A blowout game on prime time against the Buffalo Bills showed some vulnerabilities.

So, when the Chiefs win, they do it convincingly. And vice versa for when they lose.

Could that change this week against the Packers?

Green Bay Packers: Underdogs at 6-1?

The Packers turned things around after getting romped by the New Orleans Saints 38-3 to start their season.

It began against the Detroit Lions in Week 2. Aaron Rodgers went 22-for-27, throwing for 255 passing yards and four touchdowns. The Packers then won their next six games.

The Packers knocked off the previously top-seeded Bengals during their current winning streak in overtime, 25-22. And last week, they were the first team to beat the Arizona Cardinals.

Before the news that Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID, I liked the Packers in this game. Now, with Jordan Love starting, I believe it’s best to wait and see how the line adjusts.

Let’s check out some of the other best bets for the Packers at Chiefs.

Point Spread and Over-Under Total for Packers at Chiefs

Now all that remains: the point spread and over-under total. If you think the Chiefs can win the money line, then the point spread should be an easy bet as well.

At +7.5, this line should remain somewhat consistent until game day. For the Chiefs to cover at home, there’s a slightly better payout. However, things could get out of control if Jordan Love doesn’t play well.

How about the over-under? The opening line sits at 48.5. Right now, it’s essentially a toss-up. I’m staying away from that line.

I like the Chiefs to win by at least seven, and I’d also take the money line bet of -375.
