Volpe’s NFL Showdown Plays – 11/20/23: Eagles at Chiefs

๐Ÿˆ Monday Night Showdown – 11/20/23 ๐Ÿˆ
Eagles @ Chiefs | 8:15 PM EST
Chiefs -2.5 | Over/Under 46

We have a great matchup on Monday Night Football as we have a rematch of Super Bowl 57, which the Chiefs won 38-35. The Chiefs’ defense is much improved from last year, as they havenโ€™t allowed more than 24 points this entire season. The Chiefs will benefit from being at home in the loudest stadium in the NFL. They will also benefit from Andy Reid and his Bye Week magic. The Eagles havenโ€™t been able to stop anybody in the passing game, but have been elite against the run. They have shut down running backs and rank first, only allowing 66 rush yards per game. We know we can trust Rashee Rice, but in this showdown, you will have to pick from one of the 4 or 5 wide receivers from Kansas City.

๐Ÿ”ฎ Prediction ๐Ÿ”ฎ ย 
  • Chiefs 26-23
๐ŸŽฐ Bets ๐ŸŽฐ (+3.65 units)
  • Mahomes OVER 38.5 pass attempts – 1 unit – Mahomes has passed this number in 4 of his last 5 games and 6 of his 9 games. Dak had 44 in week 9, Howell had 52 in week 8. It is difficult to run against Philly, so teams have to throw more and especially if they trail.
