Bet NFL Week 14 Games

PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 54% of betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the spread while 51% of the money is also on Kansas City.

INJURY REPORT: For the Raiders, Amari Cooper (concussion) remains doubtful after missing last week's game in East Rutherford. Michael Crabtree will be back, while receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is questionable.

On the other side, Andy Reid suspended cornerback Marcus Peters for his antics last week against the Jets. Dee Ford (back), Tamba Hali (knee) and Mitch Morse (foot) are all questionable. Any one of those players missing this game would be crucial to the Chiefs.

OUR PREDICTION: In the last nine meetings between these two teams in Kansas City, the under is 8-1. In the last 25 meetings between theset wo teams overall, the under is also 18-7.

The under is 6-1 in the Raiders' last seven games versus AFC West opponents, is 4-1 in their last five games in Week 14 and is 5-2 in Oakland's last seven games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in its previous game.

On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Chiefs' last five games in Week 14, is 25-7 in their last 32 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game, and is 41-19 in their last 60 home games.
