Jacksonville Jaguars vs Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs played on Monday Night Football, but they are still favorites at home over the Jaguars. The early line shows Chiefs (-3.5).

Tennessee Titans vs Buffalo Bills

Just as quick as everyone loved the Bills now everyone is off the bandwagon when they host the Titans this week. Over 78 percent of the public is will to bet the Titans (-4) at Buffalo. The number is actually dropping around the books and is now (-3) at some sharp money sportsbooks.
