KANSAS CITY CHIEFS BETTING TRENDS
The Chiefs are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven road games, a re 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games versus AFC opponents. They're also 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
LOS ANGELES CHARGERS BETTING TRENDS
The Chargers are winless at 0-6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 0-4-1 against the number in their last five conference matchups. They're also 0-3-1 at the betting window in their last four AFC West games and are just 5-17 against the spread in their last 22 home games.
OUR PREDICTION: The Chiefs aren't just 2-0, they've been one of the most impressive teams in the NFL through two weeks. Division rivalries are difficult to predict, but Kansas City has had the upper hand at the betting window in this series and the Chiefs are flat out the better team. The Chargers have suffered two close losses and could easily be 2-0 with two clean kicks in the final minutes of regulation, so perhaps they're due. Still, I'll lay the points with a sound Kansas City team that is playing with a ton of confidence at the moment.
