Point Spread: +3½/-115 Kansas City

Sportsbook: Bovada

Result: Win

*3 Star Thursday Night Chiefs/Eagles ATS CASH* The Philadelphia Eagles got a lot of praise after their week one victory over the Washington Redskins. After week two, the Eagles were getting bashed by a lot of people once again. Chip Kelly has brought a much improved offensive scheme to Philadelphia, but if anything the Eagles defense is even worse than last year. This game has some extra story lines as Andy Reid comes back to face his old team. Reporters are trying to make that the big story here, but Andy Reid is too much of a professional to let that story line change the way his team prepares. I like what I've seen out of the Chiefs this year. Kansas City has 5 pro bowlers on their defense, and this should be a top 10 defense in the league this year. Alex Smith is a great game manager, and Jamaal Charles is an elite running back. Philadelphia just lost at home to a San Diego team that I rate much lower than the Chiefs. I'll take the better defense and grab the points here. The Eagles are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against teams with a winning record. They are 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 after allowing more than 350 yards in their last game. Take the Chiefs.
