Lamar Jackson continues to look like an insane pick for DFS leagues but could run into trouble against the one team that has escaped his talents, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jackson is 21-3 as a starter in the NFL during the regular season but has gone 0-2 against the Chiefs so far in his short career.

This will be the first game in NFL history featuring two MVPs under the age of 26, with Mahomes winning the MVP in 2018 before Jackson won his last year.

In terms of DFS, both QB’s are clearly suburb picks on any given Sunday, but in a one-off match against each other, the margin for error is far slimmer.

While Mahomes has stronger overall career stats, Jackson makes up for the gap thanks to his abilities on the ground.

Additionally, Mahomes has more weapons at his disposal, with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce posing a formidable threat against the Ravens defense.

The Ravens defense has shown they are one of the more elite units in the NFL so far, only allowing 305 yards per game, good for second in the league.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs defense has not impressed, giving up 20 points to the Los Angeles Chargers last week and needing overtime to close out the game.

The Chiefs have looked a bit slow on offense so far this season, possibly due to the Super Bowl hangover that has plagued so many teams over the years.

With that in mind, the best betting choice for tonight’s matchup goes to Lamar Jackson, by the slimmest of margins.
