For Vikings at Chiefs many are wondering if Patrick Mahomes will play in Week 9. For obvious reasons, NFL wagering odds depend on him playing. The Kansas City Chiefs will be trying to bounce back from their loss to the Green Bay Packers. This when they take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. The game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 1:00 PM. ET.
The Vikings have won their last four games. Also, will go into this matchup with a lot of confidence. For the reason that they have been playing well on offense and defense since their slow start to the season. The team is coming off a win over the Washington Redskins. A game in which quarterback Kirk Cousins, who struggled earlier in the season, completed 23 of 26 passes for 285 yards.
Running back Dalvin Cook, who hasn’t been getting enough recognition, finished with 98 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries. Moving his season total to 823 yards and nine touchdowns in eight games. What does this exactly mean for Vikings at Chiefs NFL wagering odds?
Defensively, the Vikings got to the Redskins quarterbacks, sacking Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins four times while forcing two turnovers. The team will need the defense and offense to continue playing well. This is so they can catch up to the Green bay Packers, who have a one-game lead in the NFC North.
Vikings at Chiefs Week 9 NFL
The Chiefs weren’t given much of a chance against the Green Bay Packers. This with quarterback Patrick Mahomes sitting out the game with a knee injury. However, they came ready to play and pushed the Packers until they ran out of gas late in the fourth quarter of their seven-point loss, for instance.
With Mahomes having the week off to recover from his injury, the team will be hoping he is ready to go this week. If he is not, they will give Matt Moore another start and hope he can lead them to the win.
Against the Packers, Moore completed 24 of 36 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns. However, he did not get a lot of help from his running backs as the team finished with 88 yards and one touchdown on the ground. For this reason, Vikings at Chiefs odds have been impacted.
Kansas City’s defense played well and got to Aaron Rodgers five times, but they struggled in the fourth quarter and gave up 14 points, which ended up costing them the game. The Chiefs will need more consistency from their defense if they want to get the win on Sunday.
The betting lines for this game are not yet available. The Vikings have played well over the last month, but none of the opponents they have beaten this season has a winning record. The Chiefs have been tested early and often and played well against the team with the second-best record in the NFC without the league MVP in the lineup. If Mahomes plays in this game, the Chiefs will get the win. If he doesn’t, put your money on the Vikings at Chiefs.
