The game has lost a lot of its glitz because Packers quarterback and reigning league MVP Aaron Rodgers will sit this game out after testing positive for COVID-19. Second-year quarterback will lead the Green Bay offense at Arrowhead and guide his team to an 8-1 record.
The Chiefs have been uncharacteristically poor this season. They are currently 4-4 and both their offense and defense have played terribly this season. Patrick Mahomes leads the league in interceptions and has also fumbled the ball multiple times. The Chiefs will be relieved about the fact that Rodgers has been forced to sit the game out. But if they perform as they have this season, Love could get his first win as a starter in the NFL.

Chiefs vs. Packers betting picks
The Kansas City Chiefs are fifth in the league in passing yards per game but are also 25th in passing yards allowed per game. Irrespective of the fact that Jordan Love, and not Aaron Rodgers, will be playing this game, expect both quarterbacks and their favorite targets to chew up plenty of yards on Sunday.
A parlay of Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill for 80+ yards is as safe a pick as they come. A second parlay of Love and Mahomes throwing for 275+ yards has a lower probability of paying off, but it's worth having a look at.

Chiefs vs. Packers Prediction
The Chiefs are favorites heading into this game, primarily due to Aaron Rodgers' absence. But the script seems to have been written for Jordan Love to go to Arrowhead and take down the reigning AFC champions to prove that he is the long-term solution at quarterback for his team.
Prediction: Green Bay wins a close game.
