***Chiefs vs. Ravens ATS Pick***

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -7 +102 at Pinnacle
The Chiefs opened up as 7-point favorites on the NFL odds, then went to -7.5, down to -7 and then back to -7.5 for the road team. The Chiefs' 10-3 win over the Chargers wasn't pretty, but it was effective as they've now allowed 13 points or more in five of those seven wins. They play tough defense as the Chiefs sacked Philip Rivers five times and at +12, Kansas City is second in the NFL in turnover margin behind Carolina. The Ravens didn't really stand a chance in a 35-6 loss to the Seahawks as home with the visitors playing as well as they have been. Now, the Ravens have to start looking towards 2016 and how they're going to bounce back from a terrible season. They're also sitting at -12 in the turnover battle, and that doesn't bode well against this Kansas Cit team.

Injuries
LB Justin Houston still hasn't practiced with a knee injury and could be out of the season, but LB Dee Ford stepped in with three sacks against the Chargers. The Chiefs should let their best pass rusher get as healthy as he can, so they won't rush him. RB Spencer Ware also didn't practice because of his ribs on Wednesday.

The Ravens will likely be without TE Crockett Gilmore for the season because of a bad back, while DE Chris Canty is gone for 2015 because of his pectorals. T Eugene Monroe joins them with a shoulder injury, while QB Matt Schaub practiced on Wednesday despite chest and shoulder injuries. The Ravens brought in QB Ryan Mallett to potentially play this weekend. 

 

Trends
Baltimore is 3-8-2 ATS this season, going 0-5-1 ATS at home. The Chiefs are 7-6 ATS and 4-3 ATS on the road this season. The total opened at 43 and is now at 41, and the Ravens have gone under seven times this season. The Chiefs have gone over seven times, along with a push.

The Ravens are 4-3 SU (four wins in a row) and 3-4 ATS in seven meetings with the Chiefs, who are 0-3 SU and 1-2 ATS in three meetings in Baltimore.
