The Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs meet head-to-head in NFL preseason action on Thursday night. The Packers righted the ship with a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend. Quarterback Jordan Love was 12-of-24 for 113 yards and one touchdown in the game.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs took care of business against the Washington Commanders to earn their first win of the preseason. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes tossed two touchdowns and Jody Fortson was on the receiving end of both of them. Tayon Fleet-Davis posted a rushing touchdown as well.

The Chiefs enter this contest as a small favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This 8 p.m. ET clash also features the same total as Thursday's only other preseason game.

Packers vs Chiefs Prediction & Pick

The Packers may have snapped a four-game preseason losing streak their last time out, but they are still 0-6-1 straight up in its last seven preseason games as underdogs. Having to play in front of the crowd at Arrowhead Stadium does not bode well for Green Bay's chances of ending that streak.

Keep in mind Mahomes has played in three drives this preseason and each one has resulted in a touchdown. The starters have looked unstoppable for Kansas City and could certainly exit with another two-touchdown lead here. The Chiefs are a clear favorite for a reason.

Final Score Prediction: Packers: 17 | Chiefs: 24

Many bettors stayed away from betting preseason winners over the first two weeks given how unpredictable playing time was for starters. This is the final look coaching staff will have before the regular season, though, which means extended snaps for some of those star players is expected.

The Chiefs have a clear edge in that aspect of the game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers did not suit up for the Packers last week and hasn't played in the preseason since 2018. It's hard to see Jordan Love being able to go toe for toe with Mahomes early on, so back the Chiefs to win with confidence.
