Play Kansas City Chiefs -3.
Andy Reid has had his Kansas City Chiefs ready to start the past two seasons as the team is 6-0 straight up and against the spread in September games. He likes to play his starters in the preseason and they are in the most game shape of any team. Jacksonville did not play starters much in the preseason and welcome in Nick Foles as quarterback. Foles was loaded with weapons in Philadelphia to make things easier for him. He doesn’t have that luxury. His receivers fail to separate and the pressure is on Foles that will not be good. Leonard Fournette has had injury problems in his NFL career and starts in the backfield. Only 25% of the Jaguars offensive drives led to a score last season ranking 31st and second to last. Red zone execution was also 31st in the league. That is not a good sign when you face a Kansas City Chiefs offense led by Patrick Mahomes and the top offense in the league. KC scored on 52.6% of their drives best in the NFL. They were second best on third down and red zone.
