Kansas City’s 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday as a 3.5-point home favorite ended the run of the last unbeaten team in the NFL this season. It was also the first time that the Chiefs failed to cover against the spread at BetAnySports. Even the total stayed UNDER after going OVER in four of their first five games.
While you would still have to consider Kansas City a hot team, it will be interesting to see how it reacts to this first setback on Thursday night against 2-4 Oakland as a 2.5-point favorite on the road. The Raiders have made their way to the top of the ‘Not So Hot’ list with four losses in a row both SU and ATS.
The surprising Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFC at 5-1 SU and with three-straight covers they are 4-2 ATS. The total went OVER in last Thursday’s impressive 28-23 road victory against Carolina as three-point underdogs and it has now gone OVER in four of their first six games. The Eagles have a golden opportunity to open up some real breathing room atop the NFC East this Monday night as 4.5-point home favorites against the 3-2 Washington Redskins.

Another hot betting team in the NFC is the New Orleans Saints at 3-2 both SU and ATS. Following a 0-2 start (SU and ATS) with losses to Minnesota on the road and New England at home, the Saints have won their last three games by a combined score of 106-51. They took BetAnySports’ 50.5 total OVER on their own in a wild 52-38 victory against Detroit last Sunday as six-point home favorites. The total has gone OVER in four of their first five games. New Orleans will be on the road this week as six-point favorite against Green Bay as the 4-2 Packers try and keep their season on track without the services of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
If you are looking for a hot betting team in the AFC, the New York Jets might just fit the bill. They fell to 3-3 SU on the year with last week’s 24-17 loss to New England, but after covering as nine-point home favorites, the Jets moved to 4-2 ATS with their fourth-straight cover on BetAnySports’ closing spread.
