Chiefs vs Packers Prediction: Spread
This spread is ridiculous. Yes Aaron Rodgers is out of the game but the Chiefs have one of the worst overall defenses in the league and Jordan Love has been developing for 2 years behind an all-time great quarterback.

Patrick Mahomes has struggled this season. Leading the league in interceptions is certainly not how people thought this year would be going for him. The Packers are currently 5th in the league in forcing turnovers while the Chiefs lead the league in giveaways so far.

Chiefs vs Packers Prediction: MoneyLine
Aaron Rodgers being out does not necessarily spell doom for the Packers this week. Yes, it is a huge loss but Green Bay is also getting back three top receivers and their star Left Tackle in David Bakhtiari.
Jordan Love has had ample time to develop behind Rodgers and with how poorly Mahomes has played as of late, Love has a chance to outplay him. Kansas City has a terrible defense that should allow Love to work his way into a good rhythm.
- Free Prediction: GNB +250
Chiefs vs Packers Prediction: Total
This is where it gets hard to predict what might happen in the game. The Chiefs’ defense has been terrible all year and normally Aaron Rodgers would carve them up to set himself firmly into the MVP conversation. Love should be able to take the offense down the field without too much issue while Mahomes will likely run into some issues against the Packers’ rejuvenated defense this season.
The over-under is likely going to be determined by if Love can lead the team down the field. If Love is able to control the offense then this game should hit the over largely on the back of the Packers. If Love struggles then this will be a low-scoring game way under the total.
