Monday Night Football - Kansas City Chiefs - Bet on the game! Football fans are in for a treat tonight as the red-hot Kansas City Chiefs travel to Denver to take on the Broncos in a crucial AFC West battle.

The Chiefs are in danger of running away with the division if the likes of the Chargers, Broncos and Raiders aren't careful. The Chiefs are currently 3-0 and could put two games between themselves and the rest of the division with a win tonight.

The Broncos, on the other hand, could move into a tie at the top of the division with the win.

The biggest stat that stands out heading into tonight - 118 points for the Chiefs, 61 points for the Broncos.

The Chiefs, led by rookie Patrick Mahomes, have been absolutely blistering their opponents so far this season, putting up nearly 40 points per game. Mahomes has a talented arsenal to throw to, including the likes of Watkins, Kelce, Hill and Hunt.

The flip side of that, of course, is that the Chiefs have been giving up 30 points per game.

On the other side, the Broncos, led by free agent signing Case Keenum, have been anemic on offence so far this season, managing to muster like 61 points of offence so far this season. Keenum has some impressive weapons on Sanders and Thomas, though he has largely misfired so far this season.

The Chiefs, unsurprisingly, are 3.5 point favourites this evening, despite the fact that they will be playing on the road.

The total for the game is high, with 53.5 set as the over/under line.

Odds Subject to Change

Courtland Sutton, Over/under 39.5 yards of receiving

Sutton dropped a number of his targets last week and is behind Thomas and Sanders on the depth chart. Can he top 40 yards of receiving tonight?

Case Keenum, Over/under 272.5 yards of passing

While this will certainly be an offensive minded game, can Keenum put up these sorts of numbers, or will the Broncos rely on a balanced rushing attack to try to slow down the game?

Who do you think will win this game?
