NFL Week 17 Predictions: Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Diego Chargers 1/1/17

Will the Chargers play spoiler today when they host the Chiefs at 4:25PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Chiefs are 4.5-point road favorites versus the Chargers while the over/under currently sits at 44.5 points. While the spread also opened at 4.5 for this game, the total hit the board at 45 before being bet down a half-point.

KANSAS CITY KEY TRENDS: The Chiefs are 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games, are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus AFC West and have covered in four of their last five games overall. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven conference games and 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous contest.

SAN DIEGO KEY TRENDS: The Chargers are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games versus AFC West opponents, are 4-0-1 against the number in their last five games in January and have covered in 10 of their last 14 games coming off a loss. That said, they're winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall and are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games when facing an opponent with a winning road record.

OUR PREDICTION: The Chargers had the Chiefs on the ropes in Week 1 before Kansas City mounted a comeback and handed San Diego its first loss of the season. The Chargers have nothing to play for while the Chiefs have an opportunity to secure the No. 2 seed in the AFC with a win over San Diego and a Raiders' loss in Denver. That same scenario would also make the Chiefs AFC West champions. San Diego isn't going to just hand one of its division rivals a victory, so I like take the points with the home dog in a matchup that should once again come down to the wire between these two teams.
