The Kansas City Chiefs (1-0) and Baltimore Ravens (0-1) face off in the Week 2 Sunday Night Football game at 8:20 p.m. ET (NBC). Below, we look at the Chiefs vs. Ravens odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.

The Chiefs rallied for a 33-29 home victory vs. the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. They failed to cover the spread as 5.5-point favorites and the Over (55) hit with 10:10 to go in the fourth quarter.

QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 337 yards with 3 touchdowns and added a 5-yard TD run in the Kansas City win. One of his TD passes was a 75-yarder to WR Tyreek Hill, who pulled in 11 passes for 197 receiving yards.

TE Travis Kelce (6 receptions, 76 yards) had the other 2 TD catches, while RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire was held to a team-high 43 rushing yards on 14 carries.

The Ravens were upset as 3-point favorites in an opening 33-27 overtime loss at the Las Vegas Raiders Monday with the Over (50) cashing late in regulation.

Baltimore led 24-17 with 6:04 to go, but Las Vegas tied it at the 3:49 mark. The Ravens regained the lead on a field goal with 42 seconds remaining, but the Raiders kicked a 55-yard field goal as time expired to tie it again. After trading turnovers in overtime, the Raiders won on a 31-yard TD pass with 3:44 to go.

QB Lamar Jackson threw for 235 passing yards with 1 touchdown and ran for a team-high 86 yards on 12 carries. WR Sammy Watkins led the Ravens with 96 receiving yards on 4 catches.

With RB J.K. Dobbins out for the year with a torn ACL, RB Ty'Son Williams (65 rushing yards, 9 carries) and RB Latavius Murray (28 rushing yards, 10 carries) handled most of the handoffs.

Chiefs at Ravens odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Chiefs 31, Ravens 28

Money line

BET KANSAS CITY (- 190) to WIN a HALF UNIT.

The Chiefs just don't lose away from Arrowhead Stadium in the regular season. On the road, they're 11-0 in their last 11 regular-season games and 15-1 over the last two seasons - 8-0 last season and 7-1 in 2019.

The Chiefs are on a 4-0 run vs. the Ravens in their head-to-head meetings, including a 34-20 victory at Baltimore in Week 3 last season.

Against the spread

BALTIMORE + 3.5 (- 107) is the STRONGEST PLAY - 1½ times your usual wager.

While the Chiefs have no problem winning on the road, they are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall including the postseason.

The Ravens are 7-2 ATS in their 9 games overall and 3-0 ATS in their last three home games.

Over/Under

BET OVER 53.5 (- 115) to WIN a HALF UNIT.

There's just something about TV prime time games, which are 4-0 Over/Under to start the season.
