PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 54% of the betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the spread but 75% of the money is on the Chargers, which could help explain the line movement.

INJURY REPORT: For the Chargers, offensive tackle Russell Okung is questionable with a knee injury but Nick Novak (back), Matt Slauson (biceps) and Jason Verrett (knee) are out for the year.

On the other side, Marcus Peters is questionable to return from suspension while Dee Ford (back) is out. Mitch Morse (foot) is also questionable, while Chris COnley (Achilles) and Spencer Ware (knee) are both out for KC.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in five of the last seven meetings between these two teams and is 4-1 in the Chiefs' last five games overall. The under is also 42-19 in Kansas City's last 61 home games and has cashed in 14 of its last 20 home games versus a team with a winning road record.

On the other side, the under is 4-0 in the Chargers' last four road games, is 7-1 in their last eight games overall, and is 7-1 in their last eight conference games. The under is also 19-7-1 in the Bolts' last 27 games in December, is 5-0 in its last five games coming off a straight up win of more than 14 points and 4-0 in their last four games after allowing 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
