Raiders vs. Chiefs Prediction
Will the Raiders get their revenge on their AFC West rivals the Chiefs tonight on Thursday Night Football?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Chiefs are 3-point home favorites versus the Raiders while the over/under currently sits at 46 points. While the point spread hasn't moved off that original number of three, the total opened at 47.5 and has been bet down to 46.
RAIDERS KEY TRENDS: The Raiders are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a winning record, 5-1 against the number in their last six games overall, and are 10-1 at the betting window in their last 11 road games. They're also 5-0 against the spread in their last five games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
CHEIFS KEY TRENDS: The Chiefs have struggled to cover the spread at home, going just 1-7 against the number in their last eight games at Arrowhead Stadium. They're also winless at 0-6 against the spread in their last six games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game and are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games coming off an ATS win.
OUR PREDICTION: The road team has dominated in this series, covering in 21 of the last 27 meetings between the two teams. The Raiders have also fared well in Kansas City, covering in eight of their last 10 games against the Chiefs on the road. This is also a revenge spot for the Raiders after the Chiefs beat them earlier this season in Oakland. Kansas City is now healthier on defense than it was just a few weeks ago but Oakland's offensive line is one of the best in football. The Raiders have proven that they can score on anyone and I like them to pull off the small upset on the road tonight.
