This is the first of two NFL games being held in Frankfurt, Germany. Indianapolis meets New England next weekend for the final installment of this series, but this Sunday’s matchup should be a good one.
Miami enters Sunday’s meeting with Kansas City off a solid home victory over New England. Meanwhile, Kansas City suffered a 24-9 away loss to Denver during Week 8 and would like to earn a victory over their AFC rival in Frankfurt.
Please join me as I break down the odds and share my best bet for Sunday’s NFL Frankfurt Games matchup between Miami and Kansas City on Sunday, November 5.
Miami vs Kansas City Odds Analysis
Caesars Illinois opened with Kansas City at -140, but that number has dropped to -130, which is much more manageable. The public’s confidence in Kansas City seemed to wane as money came in on Miami.
Kansas City opened as a -4.5 (-110) favorite at Caesars, but that number has shifted to -1.5 (-110) as money came pouring in on the underdog Dolphins.
The total at Caesars opened at 51.5 (-110) and now resides at 51 (-110) at Caesars Illinois. Strange that the total didn’t shift lower than it did, but the public loves high-scoring affairs, and this contest between Miami and Kansas City may indeed be a high-scoring contest.

Miami vs. Kansas City Best Bet
This should be a great way to begin what will be nearly 15 hours of NFL football on Sunday. Miami and Kansas City are the two favorites to represent the AFC in Super Bowl LVIII, and these teams will be getting after it.
Miami has dropped their last two away games to Buffalo and Philadelphia, and in both games, the offense failed to score more than 20 points in either contest. The defense allowed a combined 79 points against their two opponents, and as a result, Miami is 2-2-0 ATS and 2-2-0 as the away team.
Kansas City is the home team in name only, but they are the defending Super Bowl Champs and know something about playing on neutral fields. They are 3-1-0 ATS as the home team but 3-2 as the away side with a 1-2-0 ATS record wearing their road jerseys.
I believe the best way to use your initial wager would be to bet on Miami ML +110 at Caesars. Kansas City allows the second-fewest points per game, but they’ve surrendered 18.3 points per game away from Arrowhead Stadium, facing a Dolphins offense with many weapons and scoring the most points per game this season.
That number dips from 40.1 per game to 24.5 points per game on the road. The Dolphins’ defense hasn’t been great, but they can stop Kansas City enough times defensively for the Miami offense to outscore them.
My Best Bet: Miami ML +115 Caesars Sportsbook
