Taylor Swift, known as the queen of Swifties, is sparking speculation about her attendance at tonight’s Kansas City Chiefs game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football. While fans eagerly anticipate her presence, sports bettors are focused on the playing status of Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who is rumored to be Swift’s boyfriend, after suffering an ankle injury.
Kelce is currently listed as questionable on the injury report with a sprained right ankle. His availability for the game will be determined just before kickoff. Kelce missed the season opener due to a knee injury, resulting in a loss for the Chiefs against the Detroit Lions. However, since his return in Week 2, the Chiefs have won four consecutive games and currently hold the top spot in the AFC West with a 4-1 record.
The Broncos, on the other hand, have struggled this season and are tied with the New England Patriots for the worst record in the AFC at 1-4. Additionally, they have lost 15 consecutive games against the Chiefs, a losing streak shared with the New York Jets in their AFC East divisional matchups against the Patriots.
In their Week 5 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, Kelce sustained a non-contact ankle injury in the second quarter, which was later diagnosed as a sprained ankle. Despite the injury, Kelce returned to the game and delivered an impressive performance, catching ten passes for 67 yards and a touchdown.
If Kelce is unable to play against the Broncos, backup tight end Noah Gray has proven to be a reliable replacement, with ten receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown this season. Swift, who has attended two of Kelce’s games in person, is expected to travel to Missouri to support him against the Broncos.
On a related note, Philadelphia Eagles’ center Jason Kelce recently shared his strong opinions about artificial turf fields on his podcast. He argued for the removal of turf, citing studies that indicate a higher rate of injuries on artificial surfaces compared to natural grass.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Kelce’s injury, sports bettors remain undeterred and have placed their wagers on the Chiefs as the favorite to win with a point spread of -11. Kelce’s presence has been a key factor in the team’s victories this season, both outright and against the spread.
The Broncos, with a 1-4 record, have struggled both on the field and against the spread. Their only win came against the Chicago Bears, and they currently have odds of +4500 to win the AFC West.
Looking ahead, the undefeated San Francisco 49ers are the frontrunners to win Super Bowl LVIII, while the Chiefs rank second on DraftKings’ futures board.
As the anticipation builds for tonight’s game, fans of both Taylor Swift and sports betting eagerly await the outcome on the field.
