Taylor Swift Ratings Boom
According to Front Office Sports, Taylor Swift has been a ratings boom for the NFL, particularly within the female audience. Here are some of the highlights following her initial appearance at a KC game:
- 400% spike in Travis Kelce jersey sales
- Kelce’s podcast ranks No. 1 overall on Apple
- Kelce adds 383K Instagram followers
- 24.3M viewers watched the Bears at Chiefs, No. 1 game of the week
- 63% jump in female viewers aged 18-49
- 3x increase in ‘Chiefs’ searches on the web
- 3x increase in Chiefs sales on StubHub
- Chiefs sold more tickets in a single day since the start of the season
It sounds like Swift will sit out this week as Kelce hits the road once again. Maybe Minneapolis/St. Paul doesn’t have the same allure as NYC for the pop superstar.
Here are all the ways people can bet on Travis Kelce at regulated sportsbooks in the United States.
Travis Kelce’s Matchup With The Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota has done a solid job in terms of defending opposing tight ends, but this represents a very inviting matchup overall for the Chiefs passing offense. Minnesota entered the season with major questions at cornerback, and they’ve yet to really demonstrate any answers. While the team’s 20th ranking in EPA/play allowed passing doesn’t scream “big Travis Kelce game,” the Eagles and the Chargers completely shredded this defense.
Furthermore, the Vikings have blitzed at a comically high rate. That comes as little surprise since coordinator Brian Flores is known for his aggression.
However, that may work against them in a major way here. Patrick Mahomes can pretty much reduce any scheme to dust, but he has always shown an extra affinity for attacking the blitz.
Kelce often curls out in the flat or in the middle of the field to serve as a release valve against blitzes. Should he find some space against this Minnesota defense, he could rack up some yardage after the catch.
