The Kansas City Chiefs opened as 7-point home underdogs against the Baltimore Ravens

The Kansas City Chiefs opened as underdogs for the fifth time in as many weeks, this time opening as 7-point underdogs against the visiting Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs have been underdogs of more than three points twice this season, in week 3 against the Saints and now week 5 against the Ravens.

The line has not seen much movement as opposed to recent weeks. In fact, the Chiefs are listed anywhere between 6 to 7 point underdogs as of this moment, per Odds Shark. They are 1-3 against the spread.

The total points scored for Monday night's showdown opened at a combined 46 points. There hasn't been significant line movement on that end either, but various books have increase the combined total by at least 0.5 points.

The Ravens' quick-hit offense consists of several big-time skill players from quarterback Joe Flacco to running back Ray Rice. Those along with the emergence of wide receiver Torrey Smith as a deep threat have helped the Ravens average more than 30 points a game this season.

However, the Chiefs offense has not been as good and are averaging just 22 points per game, despite possessing the talents of Dwayne Bowe on the outside and Jamaal Charles in the backfield.
