Week 11 of the 2023 NFL season wraps up Monday night with a huge matchup as the Kansas City Chiefs (7-2) host the Philadelphia Eagles (8-1).
What can we expect from a betting standpoint?
Betting analysts Eric Moody,Seth Walder, Tyler Fulghum and Aaron Schatz are here to provide their thoughts.

Schatz: Both teams are coming off a bye week, so I don't think that factors into handicapping this game. What matters is that the Chiefs have been the better team this year with underlying stats even if Philadelphia has more wins because of some close wins over below-average opponents. DVOA currently puts the Chiefs third and the Eagles ninth, while ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) has the Chiefs second and the Eagles seventh. Either way, advantage Chiefs, plus home-field advantage, soI'm going with Chiefs -2.5.
Fulghum: I think this is a good spot for the Chiefs -2.5. With both teams coming off a bye, that's a wash. Kansas City, though, owns the home field advantage and the superior defensive unit. I trust Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes to perform well against an Eagles defense that sets up as a pass funnel. More Rashee Rice, please.
Schatz: I would expect offense to dominate over defense because of the problems the Eagles' pass defense and the Chiefs' run defense have had this season. In addition, both the Eagles and the Chiefs play faster in situation-neutral pace than in total pace. Their total paces are slower because they often have late leads, but this game should be close, and so both teams will want to snap the ball more and run more plays. I like this game to go over 45.5.
Fulghum: It's hard to bet against these quarterbacks. The two teams combined for 73 points when we last saw them in Super Bowl
