NFL Underdog Pick Week 15|
December 16th 2016 -
Tennessee Titans (+5.5) at Kansas
Let's quickly analyze how the Kansas City Chiefs are winning football games
despite having some of the worst statistics in the NFL. The Chiefs have been out
gained by an average of 50 yards per game. One of the main reasons the Chiefs

in the Chiefs. 5.5 points is too much for a game that will most likely be
determined by a field goal.
Take the Titans and the points
