Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Chiefs are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Chargers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 53 points. As of this writing, 69% of the public betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the point spread.

Los Angeles Chargers

Melvin Gordon (knee) remained sidelined at Monday's practice. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said on Sunday that Gordon "could play" Thursday night in Week 15 against the Chiefs. One of us "could" also win the lottery. Gordon hasn't seemed particularly close to a return and is now on a short week. With Austin Ekeler (neck) also sidelined Monday, rookies Justin Jackson and Detrez Newsome are the Chargers' current healthy running backs.

Kansas City Chiefs

Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) did not practice Monday. Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) also was sidelined Monday after both players were hurt Sunday against the Ravens. Ultimately, both are expected to play Thursday night against the Chargers, though Hill is less than 100 percent.
