We have a wild one on tap for this Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Detroit Lions. Heading into Week 4, neither of these teams have tasted defeat but barring a tie, looking at you Detroit, one of these two will lose. Mahomes vs. Stafford looks to be appointment TV.
Kansas City has picked up right where they left off last season. They are far and away the top passing team, leading the second ranked team by over 80 yards. Patrick Mahomes has certainly not fallen off and is on the path to being one of the best ever statistically. As long as Head Coach Andy Reid is there, the offense will never struggle. The defense on the other hand is up and down, doing just enough to enable the powerful offense to win games week-in and week-out. The defense appears to be getting better but it is early in the year and 2 of the 3 opponents, Jacksonville and Oakland, are not exactly known as offensive juggernauts.
The Detroit Lions have been a bit of a surprise to Elldee Sports. The offense has been slightly above the league average and the defense has been slightly below the league average. That is no shock but the win-loss record is, posting a 2-0-1 through 3 Weeks. Those two wins are over the Chargers at home and the Eagles on the road, not exactly pushovers. Head Coach Matt Patricia, a Belichick disciple and defensive extraordinaire, will look to confuse Kansas City’s young quarterback. Look for Detroit to slow the game down and expect Patricia to call his old boss for advice on slowing down the Chiefs.
Elldee Sports expects to see the Detroit Lions to jump to a quick lead and hang on for a victory. If KC gets up early and forces pressure on the Lions, this could get out of hand in a very short amount of time, though. The Elldee Sports Formula is calling for a close Detroit win in a high scoring affair. While the Total and Money Line predictions are not over 80%, the determining line for Elldee Sports, the Spread is, so take Detroit and the points! Until next time, good luck.
