Chargers vs Chiefs Game Odds & Betting Preview

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have now lost two out of their last three games after falling 35-32 on the road against Tennessee to drop to 6-4 on the season overall. Kansas City was up by two points heading into the fourth quarter but couldn’t hang on down the stretch, getting outscored 15-10 over the final 15 minutes of the game. QB Patrick Mahomes looked solid in his first game back in the lineup after suffering a dislocated knee cap, going 36/50 for 446 passing yards and three touchdowns through the air. RB Damien Williams led the way on the ground, rushing for 77 yards on a team-high 19 carries. Tyreek Hill torched the Titans secondary, hauling in 11 receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown. As a whole, the Chiefs generated almost 550 total yards and found the end zone three times on offense despite coming up just short on the scoreboard.

Kansas City really struggled defensively against the Titans, surrendering over 400 total yards of offense and four touchdowns. The Chiefs had no answer for Tennessee RB Derrick Henry, as he exploded for 188 rushing yards and two touchdowns on a game-high 23 carries.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers weren’t at their best on Thursday Night Football in Week 10, losing 26-24 on the road against Oakland despite being slightly favored before the kickoff. Los Angeles had been riding a two-game winning streak but couldn’t find a way to get the job done against a gritty Raiders squad after falling behind 10-0 early. QB Philip Rivers went 17/31 for 207 passing yards and two touchdowns through the air but also got picked off three times as well. RB Melvin Gordon was a beast on the ground, rushing for 108 yards and a touchdown on a season-high 22 carries. Keenan Allen also chipped in, making eight catches for 68 yards. Overall, the Chargers gained over 350 total yards of offense in the loss.

Los Angeles had a fairly average outing on the other side of the ball in Week 10, giving up almost 300 total yards of offense and two touchdowns. The Chargers secondary really played well, as no Oakland receiver managed to gain more than 45 total yards.

Free NFL Betting Predictions and Pick: Chiefs -4

Even though Kansas City couldn’t find a way to get past the Titans on the road last weekend, I think they should find a way to bounce back in primetime here in Week 11. The Chargers have been remarkably inconsistent through their first nine games and have really struggled against the spread so far this year, going just 3-6-1 overall. Los Angeles has also really under-performed at home, covering the number in just one of their last five games at Dignity Health Sports Park. While the Chiefs will be forced to go without the services of injured RB Damien Williams on the ground, Patrick Mahomes looked great in his return to action and should be ready to rock on Monday Night Football.

Kansas City has absolutely dominated this AFC West rivalry as of late, going a very impressive 7-3 against the spread over their last ten meetings with the Chargers. They have also scored an average of over eight more points per game than Los Angeles over that time span, which certainly bodes well for their chances of covering this very reasonable spread. Playing on the road in this matchup hasn’t hurt the Chiefs either, as they are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six battles with the Chargers in Los Angeles. On the other side, Rivers and Co. are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six meetings with an AFC West opponent. I’ll lay the four points and roll with the slight road underdog in what should be a pretty entertaining, fast-paced game – give me Kansas City to cover!
