Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers (10/23 @ 4:25 PM EST.)

Line: Kansas City (-2)
Total: 47.5

49ers vs. Chiefs Breakdown and Betting Odds

The 4-2 Kansas City Chiefs go west to take on the 3-3 San Francisco 49ers on October 23 for a Week 7 game beginning at 4:25 EDT.

The Chiefs are a 2-point favorite, and the over/under is set at 47.5.

This is a rematch of Super Bowl 54 when the Chiefs emerged victorious in February 2020. Currently, both teams are coming off disappointing losses in Week 6. The 49ers fell to the surging Atlanta Falcons, and the Chiefs were upended by the Buffalo Bills.

Kansas City Chiefs Overview

Through the six-week season, the Chiefs have dipped in Week 3 and Week 6, scoring 17 and 20 points, respectively. Given that this offense has super offensive weapons such as Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, those are disappointing low scores. Overall, the Chiefs average 29.8 points per game which leads the NFL.

PFF ranks the Chiefs 3rd overall in their 2022 Week 7 team ratings behind the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills.

San Francisco 49ers Overview

Despite having Deebo Samuel and George Kittle, the 49ers are not putting a lot of points on the board. They average 20.3 points per game which is a deceptive statistic given they scored a season-high 37 against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5 and in three of their other games, they only managed to score 14 or fewer points.

The Week 7 Pro Football Focus (PFF) overall team rankings have the 49ers going in the wrong direction. In Week 6, they were ranked 7th but fall to 16th in Week 7.

My Free Pick: Chiefs (-2)

The Chiefs, motivated by last week’s disappointing loss, will cover the spread against a 49ers team that has shown both flashes of greatness and mediocrity.
