Sunday Night Football Picks for Broncos vs. Chiefs - Tony Dungy Sides with the 'Sharps' in K.C.

NBC Sports - Football Night in America

Here at BetSided, we keep track of the Football Night in America team for their straight-up picks.

This is now Game No. 15 since the NFL season began with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys. Note that for the Thanksgiving game, there were no analyst predictions made for the game.

For the second consecutive week, according to WynnBET Communications, we have another "Pros vs. Joes" set-up on Sunday Night Football between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs haven't lost to the Broncos since the 2015 season.

After opening with the Chiefs as 10-point favorites, the line has moved all the way down to Kansas City -8.5; a one-and-a-half-point swing. The Chiefs have the slight majority of bets at 56.3% of the tickets, but just 28.2% of the total handle for the spread.

That makes sense considering the move in Denver's favor. The Broncos have 43.7% of the betting tickets, but 71.8% of the money.

On the moneyline, the Chiefs are -390 after opening at -480, meaning a $390 bet would profit $100. 73.9% of the money is on K.C. to win straight-up, with 84.5% of the betting tickets. For Denver, 26.1% of the money is on the Broncos to pull off the upset at +315 odds (down from +380), but only 15.5% of the bets are on Denver to win straight up.

Lastly, with wind gusts of 15-20 mph expects in Kansas City tonight, the total opened at 49 but has gone down a full three points to 46 at close. According to WynnBET, it's been a dead-even split on the money, but 60.1% of the bets are on the OVER.

Who does NBC's Football Night in America team expect to get it done straight up on the moneyline?

Here are their team's straight-up picks for the Broncos and Chiefs from GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.
