Why the Packers can cover
Green Bay has covered and won straight-up in five consecutive games. In fact, the Packers haven't tasted defeat since their Week 1 loss. Aaron Rodgers has been the driving force behind Green Bay's success, but its defense shouldn't be underestimated, especially against a Chiefs offense that hasn't looked elite in weeks.
Kansas City is 0-4 against the spread as a home favorite, and that's a red flag worth noting ahead of Sunday's game. The Chiefs' frequent turnovers have been detrimental to their success. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown 10 interceptions since Week 2, and the Packers' top-10 pass defense has 14 picks on the year. Five teams have allowed fewer passing yards per game than Green Bay. The Chiefs might win against the understaffed Packers, but their carelessness with the ball could lead to a close game.
Why the Chiefs can cover
The Chiefs haven't had much success at home this year, but the Packers haven't gotten desirable results without their starting quarterback. Green Bay has suffered two straight double-digit losses in games Rodgers has been ruled out of. No replacement can match his chemistry with Davante Adams, so Jordan Love's chances of maximizing Green Bay's offensive potential and matching Kansas City's scoring are slim.
Green Bay's secondary has excelled against the pass but hasn't had to deal with much star power over the past five weeks. The Packers have faced three bottom-six passing teams over their last five games. The Chiefs rank third in passing yards (2,450) and could break out of their slump against a cornerback group that's missing Jaire Alexander.
