Monday Night Football: Highlight Game Of The WeekPublished November 19, 2018 by Sol FH
The two best records in the NFL go head-to-head tonight at 1:15 GMT, with the Rams taking on the Chiefs in Los Angeles, CA.
It was an incredible week of action in the NFL, but, if you can believe it, the cherry on top kicks-off tonight with the Los Angeles Rams hosting the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams boast 9-1 records, tied for best in the NFL so far this year. Perhaps the craziest part of this game is that it could very well be a preview of the Super Bowl on February 3 next year.
It was an exciting turn of events that brought this game to LA’s home stadium, as it was intended to be played in Mexico City at Estadio Azteca, but, due to many different reasons, the pitch was deemed unfit to play, and the Rams got the home advantage; albeit to the dismay of the Chiefs. The Rams gave away thousands of free tickets for the game to emergency services and many of the people that have been affected by the lethal wildfires in their state.
The Rams’ defense has been a bit shaky over the last three weeks, allowing teams to score, 45, 31, and 27-points respectably so they will be out to try and stop the Chiefs. Third-down conversions have been quite a success story for Kansas City this year. They are in fourth place in the league in this category, and they have the best offense too. Patrick Mahomes was the passing yards leader last week, and after last nights’ games, no QB caught him so that he will build an even bigger lead after tonight.
Prediction and Betting Markets
The Rams got lucky with the move to their home stadium, and because of this, they are the favorites tonight; at least they are the favorites at bet365 Sports. In all honesty, the Chiefs are the better team, and they could easily win this game. Bet365 Sports has the Rams at 1.57 while the Chiefs are at 2.55. An underdog bet is the best bet tonight.
