Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on the Chiefs?
Chiefs, Bills, and Eagles are widely considered to be among NFL’s elite teams this season, and beating them is a task that only a few have achieved. The Chiefs ended the regular season with 14 wins and 3 losses equaling the mark of the Eagles, who had a spectacular season from the beginning, with ten back-to-back victories in the NFL.
The Chiefs faced the Jaguars in November 2022 and won handily 27-17. This time, the confrontation is worth the classification, and a lot will be involved.
Big teams, like the Chiefs, need to be careful with underdogs in the knockout stages, because everything that was achieved during the regular season is now worthless.
Bookmakers point to the Chiefs as favorites. Playing at home, victory is what is expected of them, but the whole team knows that they cannot waver and believe that the game is already won before starting.
Why Bet on the Jaguars?
The Jaguars eliminated the Chargers in the Wildcard round, but now they have a massive challenge ahead of them. Facing the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on their home turf, is one of the toughest jobs in the NFL.
Jacksonville won the last six games of the season, including match-ups against key opponents like the Cowboys and Titans. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has been one of the highlights of the year. Should the team eliminate the Chiefs, much of that credit will certainly go to him.
Despite seeing almost every bookmaker online favoring the Chiefs, the Jaguars can be surprising on the road, like they did with the Bills in October last year winning 24-20. The key difference here is early season football versus the intensity of NFL Playoff elimination.
Final Betting Analysis: Chiefs vs. Jaguars
Every outcome is possible in the NFL and knockout rounds always provide a surprise. Fans, sports commentators, and bookmakers recognize the Chiefs’ superiority, but they recognize that they are facing an opponent who will make things difficult from the start.
If the Jaguars don’t surprise Kansas City, the Chiefs should win this match. Take the Moneyline on a Chiefs win.
If you put $100 into the Chiefs’ win, you could get $22 back for a total payout of $122.
