Division rivals, Chiefs and Raiders, to play Thursday night

October 19, 2017 8:30 AM


This Thursday night the Kansas City Chiefs head to Oakland to take on the Raiders. Currently the Chiefs are a 3-point favorite with the total at 46.5.

The Chiefs have scored at least 24 in their last six games, and it’s not unlikely that they will score that many this coming Thursday night.  Another interesting fact, the OVER has hit in all but one of the KC games. Only the Raiders have been under-performing and when division rivals face off, anything can happen.

Kansas City is coming off a short week and will be looking to rebound after their first loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Look for Kansas City to win this game, but covering the 3 is the issue.

The Chiefs have won seven of the last eight games against Oakland, and the Raiders are struggling mightily. The Raiders have lost four in a row. Last season they were ranked No. 7 in yards and now they are No. 30. 

This game may be close, but given the way the Raiders have been playing, I’m going to put my money on the visitors. Take KANSAS CITY.
