Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs failed to cover the spread in a road win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 14 of the 2020 season.

It dropped Mahomes to 1-4-1 against the spread (ATS) in his career against good teams — teams that entered the game with a winning percentage of at least .600 — in games played in Week 10 or later.

One week later, Mahomes started a four-game ATS winning streak in those games and enters a matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles this Monday at 5-6-1. Including the postseason, he’s 13-10-1 (.565) in those games.

That ranks fifth among active quarterbacks (minimum of 10 games). Here's a look at the list:

Jimmy Garoppolo (.778)
Joe Burrow (.700)
Russell Wilson (.583)
Jared Goff (.580)
Patrick Mahomes (.565)

Jalen Hurts is 4-3 (.571) in those games, including 3-1 in the regular season.

As of the NFL lines at BetMGM on Tuesday, the Chiefs were a 3-point favorite. It’s the most common spread in NFL betting; approximately 15% of all games over the last 20 years had a 3-point spread.
