Chargers vs. Chiefs Free Pick
The Chiefs will look to win their seventh consecutive game today when they host the Chargers at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Chiefs are a 10.5-point home favorite versus the Chargers, who are just 3-9 on the season and 4-8 against the spread. During its six-game winning streak, Kansas City is also 6-0 against the spread and is now 7-5 ATS on the season.
This is a lot of points to lay on a team that is bound to have a dud performance at some point, but the Chargers are banged up and bad. They've recorded just four turnovers since Week 5 and 29th among NFL defenses in turnovers forced this season. They've also haven't held an opponent to under 100 yards rushing in 10 of their 12 games this season and have struggled all year on that side of the ball.
On offense, quarterback Philip Rivers had his worst game of the season the last time he faced the Chiefs andw ill be without receivers Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman. With rookie runner Melvin Gordon heading for a lost season, the Chargers will find it difficult to move the ball against a Kansas City defense that has recorded nine interceptions over the last five weeks. The Chiefs are also allowing just 14.5 points per game the past five weeks.
