Chiefs vs. Jaguars Betting Prediction
The Kansas City Chiefs struggled in Week 1 as the absence of Travis Kelce and Chris Jones, who sat out due to injury and holdout, respectively, clearly affected them. While both players will be back in Week 2, it is unclear how close to 100% either player is. Meanwhile, they will face a tough test in the Jacksonville Jaguars. Look for Jacksonville to keep things close, as they lose by no more than three points.
