Vegas odds can teach us a lot of things. If there's inside information about a player's availability, for example, sportsbooks are often the first to know.
Isiah Pacheco surprisingly popped up on the injury report this week, and current betting odds seem to indicate he won't play.
At the least, it seems he'll be limited. Here's why:
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Anytime TD Odds Indicate Isiah Pacheco Will Miss Week 14
Edwards-Helaire is listed at -115 to score a TD vs. the Bills at FanDuel Sportsbook. Those odds are in the neighborhood of what Pacheco typically is.
Jerick McKinnon logged a full practice yesterday. If he's a full go and Edwards-Helaire is -115 to score, what does that say about Pacheco?
It says he won't play. Otherwise, how will Edwards-Helaire find the end zone? He only has one score on the season, and I'd expect his odds to be MUCH higher in ordinary circumstances. If Edwards-Helaire stays around -115 as we approach the game, the likelihood Pacheco plays decreases even more.
We can learn a lot by looking at the odds. Unfortunately, what we're learning now is bad news for the Chiefs.
