The Patriots edged the Chiefs, 43-40, at home in Week 6, but it's Kansas City with homefield advantage for Sunday's AFC Championship Game. The Chiefs are three-point favorites for the 6:40 p.m. ET kickoff, while the over-under is 56.
Before you make any Patriots vs. Chiefs picks, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.
SportsLine's proprietary computer model went 176-80 straight-up last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool players in 2016 and '17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who have followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018-19, entering the championship round on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. It also went 170-84 on straight-up NFL picks during the regular season, ranking inside the top 10 on NFLPickWatch.com. Additionally, it is 7-1 on all against-the-spread picks in the 2019 NFL playoffs. Anyone who has followed it is WAY up.
Now, it has simulated Patriots vs. Chiefs 10,000 times. We can tell you the model is leaning Under, but it also says one side of the spread cashes in well over 50 percent of simulations, making it a MUST-BACK. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in your picks.
