The 12-1 Chiefs have won eight consecutive games and have the inside track on home-field advantage throughout the AFC postseason. But they’ll face a significant test this weekend against a 10-3 Saints team that might have quarterback Drew Brees back in the lineup.

NFL Week 15 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Given the Saints’ sustained success over the years, it won’t surprise many to know that New Orleans has been a home underdog just seven times since November 2012. And the Saints have been a bettor’s dream over that span, going an incredible 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS when receiving points at the Superdome. That hasn’t resonated with Sports Interaction bettors, who are siding with the Chiefs at a whopping 86 percent clip.

The disparity is just as large on Sunday’s total, with 87 percent of respondents taking the O51.5. The Chiefs are riding a 6-3 O/U trend in its previous nine games against NFC opponents, but fell short of the number in its last matchup with an NFC foe (beating Tampa Bay 27-24 to cash the U56). The Saints, on the other hand, have made good on the Under in five of their previous six games overall, with none of those games producing more than 45 points.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City is on a history-making trajectory – and one player could find himself in the record books in impressive fashion. Travis Kelce comes into Week 15 as the NFL leader in receiving yards with 1,250, 80 more than runner-up D.K. Metcalf; if he hangs on, he’ll be the first tight end in history to pace the league in yards. And while the Saints have been one of the top defensive units in football, they rank in the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.

New Orleans Saints

Will Drew Brees be back in action Sunday? That question is everything to fans and bettors, with the future Hall of Famer officially returning practice after missing the previous four games with a punctured lung and 11 broken ribs. His return would invigorate a New Orleans passing game that stalled under backup Taysom Hill, who threw just four touchdown passes in his four starts. Brees has completed 73.5 percent of his pass attempts with 18 TDs and three INTs.
