The Green Bay Packers are 1-point road favorites at the Kansas City Chiefs in an NFL preseason game scheduled for Thursday, August 25
The home team is 8-1 straight up and 7-2 against the spread in the past 10 preseason games between these two squads
Both Green Bay and Kansas City are 1-1 SU in NFL preseason play

Lambeau Field, home to the Green Bay Packers, and Arrowhead Stadium, where the Kansas City Chiefs play, are considered two of the toughest places in the NFL for visitors to carve out a victory. That being the case, perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that home cooking has been ruling over NFL preseason games between the two clubs.

The Chiefs and Packers will be closing out the NFL preseason against each other this week. It’s Kansas City’s home game and if the NFL betting trends are to be adhered to, it also means it will be a Chiefs triumph.

Kansas City and Green Bay have met in 10 NFL preseason games since 1998. One was a neutral site game. In the other nine contests, the home team won eight games. You have to go all the way back to 1998, when Green Bay won 27-24 at Kansas City, to locate a visiting victory.

Oddsmakers appear to believe that the time for this to happen again has arrived. The visiting Packers are being set as 1-point road favorites for the game in the latest NFL lines. Green Bay hasn’t won a road preseason game since 2017. The Packers are 0-6 straight up in their past six away exhibition contests.

Packers Sitting Most Starters

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was announcing earlier this week that the vast majority of Green Bay starters will be spectators for this game. He indicated that the only first-team players who figure to see significant playing time were members of the offensive line.

#Packers CB Rasul Douglas on if the defense feels like they’ve been tested by Green Bay’s offense: “Nah. They can’t mess with us. They can’t mess with us. Our offense — they not ready for us.”

Rookie linebacker Quay Walker has started the first two preseason games and figures to get the nod against the Chiefs.

Chiefs Battling Injury Bug

Chiefs coach Andy Reid hasn’t made up his mind whether or not he’ll be playing his first stringers against the Packers. Kansas City’s first team played one series in the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears and two series in Week 2 facing the Washington Commanders.

Injuries will keep several players out of action, however. Tight end Blake Bell (hip flexor surgery), Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (Achilles), cornerback Rashad Fenton (groin strain), running back Derrick Gore (fractured thumb), tackle Lucas Niang (torn patellar tendon) and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) are all out.

Packers vs Chiefs Prediction

Not only have the Packers lost four straight preseason games at Kansas City, Green Bay suffered each of the last three setbacks by double digit margins – twice by 12 points and once by 10 points.

Should Reid opt to play Patrick Mahomes and company even for a couple of series, since they’ll be taking the field again Green Bay’s scrubs. That alone could provide the margin of victory.

If may only be the preseason, but when you can get points on the Chiefs at home, you take it.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs +1 (-110)
