Kansas City Chiefs at Washington Football Team odds, picks and prediction
The Kansas City Chiefs (2-3) will be on the road this weekend, visiting the Washington Football Team (2-3) Sunday. Both teams have underachieved this season, and another loss will push one of these teams even further below .500. Kickoff from FedExField will be at 1 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Chiefs vs. Washington odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.
One of the biggest surprises of the season thus far has been the Chiefs' 2-3 start. Two of their losses were by fewer than 5 points, but their performance in a 38-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills Monday night was disappointing. The Chiefs still rank fifth in points and yards, but they've also given up more points than any other team in the league.
Washington's defense hasn't been much better. It ranks 31st in points allowed and 20th in yards per game allowed, struggling to slow any of its opponents down. Washington has allowed at least 30 points in each of its last four games, most recently losing 33-22 to the New Orleans Saints.

Chiefs at Washington odds, lines, predictions and picks
Chiefs 34, Washington 24
BET CHIEFS (-280) to win outright over Washington, getting back on track after a slow start to the year.
Despite their equal records, the Chiefs and Washington are different teams. Kansas City is led by an MVP quarterback and has arguably the most dangerous receiver in football. Washington has gotten decent play out of QB Taylor Heinicke, but this is a matchup that favors the Chiefs.
BET CHIEFS -6.5 (-112) to win and cover.
Both of these teams are just 1-4 ATS through five weeks. Washington has been favored three times, covering once, but failed to cover in the two games where it was an underdog.
The Chiefs have been favored each week and the only time they covered the spread was in a 42-30 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.
OVER 54.5 (- 115) is the play as this should be a high-scoring game.
What happens when two of the worst defenses in football meet? The O/U gets set at 54.5 points. Washington's offense isn't on the level of the Chiefs', but with WR Terry McLaurin and RB Gibson, it is still capable of putting up points.
