NFL Kickoff Game betting preview

The Baltimore Ravens had the league’s best record last season at 13-4, snagging the conference’s top seed. They opened the postseason with a 34-10 home win over the Houston Texans but came up short in a 17-10 loss to the visiting Chiefs in the AFC championship game. 

Baltimore was a -4.5 favorite for that one but couldn’t recover from a 10-point halftime deficit. Following an exceptional campaign, Lamar Jackson took home NFL MVP honors. Over the offseason, the club bolstered its offense with the signing of Derrick Henry

The Kansas City Chiefs were the AFC’s third seed following an 11-6 campaign. After defeating the Miami Dolphins at home in the playoff opener, the club picked up road wins over the Buffalo Bills and Ravens to reach the Super Bowl for the second straight season. 

The Chiefs then took down the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in an overtime thriller, becoming the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the 2003-04 New England Patriots. Patrick Mahomes is the early betting favorite in NFL MVP odds as the team eyes a three-peat.
