NFL Free Pick: KC/OAK
AFC West rivals meet in the black hole on Sunday when the Oakland Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs. Oakland is coming off a victory over the Broncos, while the Chiefs fell to the Bills at home.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Raiders -3 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 41.5 total points.
Key Trend: The Chiefs are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games on the road, but 5-0 againt the spread in their last five games when playing on the road in Oakland. The total has also gone under in five of Kansas City’s last six games when playing on the road against Oakland.
Key Stat: Both teams can run the ball – Kansas City averages 115.4 yards a game, while Oakland averages 122.5 yards per game – but neither can pass (the Chiefs are averaging 192.7 yards per game, while the Raiders are averaging 139.9). These stats scream to take the under.
Game Outlook: Flip a coin in this game because neither team has been consistent this year. One week the Raiders are getting shredded, the next they’re beating the Broncos 31-10. Same with the Chiefs, who hung with the Saints but got hammered last week at home against the Bills. We’ll stick with the trends in this matchup though, which has KC at 5-0 against the spread the last five games against Oakland. We like the under play better, however.
