Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Chiefs are 14.5-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The total, meanwhile, sits at 52.5 points. As of this writing, 53% of the public betting tickets are on the Raiders to cover the point spread.

Oakland Raiders

Jared Cook (ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice. The injury sidelined Cook briefly in Monday night's win over Denver. His presence at practice, albeit on a limited basis, suggests he'll be fine for Sunday's finale at Kansas City. Cook leads the Raiders with 868 receiving yards this year, which ranks fourth among tight ends.

Kansas City Chiefs

Eric Berry (heel) is questionable for Week 17 against the Raiders. Berry didn't practice Friday, creating some concern over his status. It's possible the Chiefs rest him to make sure he's fully healthy for the postseason, though they're playing for home-field advantage in Week 17.

NFL Betting Trends

Oakland

The Raiders are 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games and are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games coming off a win.

Kansas City

The Chiefs are 0-4 against the number in their last four home games and are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games overall.

Prediction

The Raiders gave the Chiefs a game a few weeks ago in Oakland and are coming off a victory over the Broncos on Monday night. This is a lot of points to lay in a divisional game and with everything on the line for Kansas City, Andy Reid’s team may come out tight. Backing the Raiders following a win has not been a profitable strategy but I’ll make the exception today, especially with the hook on that 14.
