Kansas City Chiefs vs Las Vegas Raiders Betting Odds & Line Movement
In this AFC West rivalry, the Chiefs opened as 3-point road underdogs and have subsequently drifted down to Kansas City -2.5. The UNDER has received a lot of action, pushing the line from its opening mark of 53.5 points all the way to 51.5 points at MyBookie.ag.
Notes On The Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs did not have the high-scoring offense that we are accustomed to seeing from them in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers. Patrick Mahomes had only 166 passing yards and one passing touchdown, while the team scored just 13 points. Kansas City, however, earned a 13-7 triumph with an outstanding defensive showing and no turnovers.
We would not have lost if we faced Jordan Love in his first career start instead of Aaron Rodgers. The Giants and Packers are injured, so it is difficult for them to play too. But even when the Chiefs played the Giants and Packers, they allowed fewer points than when they started out with 3-4 wins.
Notes On The Las Vegas Raiders
In last Sunday’s game, Derek Carr threw 46 passes. He had 3 turnovers in the game – 2 interceptions and a fumble. The team missed Henry Ruggs III who is a receiver for the Raiders because Kenyan Drake was their second-leading receiver with 6 catches and 70 yards behind Darren Waller who had 7 catches for ninety-two yards.
The Raiders signed DeSean Jackson on Monday to try to fill the deep threat void that Ruggs left behind. It will be interesting to see if Las Vegas makes an attempt to claim or sign the recently waived Odell Beckham Jr. as well. Las Vegas has averaged 31.4 points per game in its five wins this season and only 13 points per game in its three losses.
Will The Kansas City Chiefs Cover The Pointspread?
Kansas City’s defense will have a hard time with this offense. They have a better defense than the last two games. If they can do what they did on their last game, then they should win this game.
Will The Las Vegas Raiders Cover The Pointspread?
The Raiders have allowed 35 points per game in their last six games against the Chiefs. They allow less than 28 points in any of those six games. One way to win is to have a good day on offense and win in a shootout.
