Patriots vs. Chiefs Week 15 Betting Odds, Preview, and Prediction

The Patriots got themselves back in the win column this last week with a 21-18 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and now head into Week 15 with a 3-10 record and four games remaining in the season.

They’ll welcome the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs to Foxborough this weekend,

Storylines

With the Chiefs coming into Sunday’s game having lost two games in a row for the first time since 2021 and the Patriots rumored to be parting ways with their head coach this coming offseason, the top storyline in this one, naturally, is Taylor Swift.

The pop sensation, who is dating Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, is rumored to be attending Sunday’s game in Foxborough. Swift has played Gillette Stadium over 11 times in her righteous music career and supposedly has an affinity for the area.

During his (now) weekly interview with WEEI’s Jones and Mego this week, Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe said he was not a fan of Swift, which sparked some controversy.

“Okay, so, listen to the whole quote,” Zappe said during his Wednesday press conference to clarify. “I said I’m not not a fan. I used to be a fan. I’m a country guy. I listen to country music. She used to be country. There was times where, of course, Taylor Swift’s country songs came on. I’d listen to it. Now she’s moved over to pop. I’m not a pop guy. So, I’m a fan. I just don’t listen to that type of music. So, just to clear that up in there.”

I’m glad we got that cleared up.

As for the Belichick storyline, it was reported this week by NBC Sports Boston’s Tom. E. Curran that, “when [the Patriots] came out of Germany, conversations I had made it very clear that a decision was made and they were going to play out the string, and at the end of the year there would be a parting of the ways [with Belichick].”

Curran has since added that, while the Krafts could change their mind, the chances of that are “remote”.

Predictions and Picks

As for the game itself on Sunday, I think the Chiefs will bounce back in this one, with the Patriots coming back to earth. Kansas City has too much to play for with a playoff berth not suddenly on the line, and with New England really only playing one good half of football over the last month and a half, it’s more likely that they throw up a dud again that get a second win in a row.

I like the Chiefs laying the points in this one, and I like the over 37.

Score: Chiefs 24 – Patriots 13

Side: Chiefs -8.5

Total: OVER 37
