A key battle in the AFC West will occur in Week 14 when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Las Vegas Raiders.

Raiders vs Chiefs Prediction

After starting the season poorly, the Chiefs have rattled off five straight wins. They beat a couple of tough opponents along the way, knocking off the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys. Their defense has actually stood out during that stretch, allowing 17 points or fewer in each game.

Another aspect working in the Chiefs’ favor is their improved health. Clyde Edwards-Helaire has played in the last two games after missing four straight contests due to injury. Across those two contests, he has 158 total yards and a touchdown.

During their five-game winning streak, the Chiefs also played the Raiders, beating them 41-14 in Las Vegas. Patrick Mahomes was the driving force in that matchup, throwing 406 yards and five touchdowns.

Already without Darren Waller (knee) last week, the Raiders then lost Kenyan Drake to a broken ankle against Washington that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.

Even if Waller returns, it’s difficult to envision the Chiefs losing this game at home, especially considering they are 5-2 at home this season.

Prediction: Chiefs 31, Raiders 24

It’s encouraging that these two teams combined for 55 points the last time around, even with the Raiders struggling to score. While an injury to Drake is noteworthy, the Raiders still have Josh Jacobs in their backfield.

Last week, Jacobs finished with 90 total yards and a touchdown, marking the third time he has registered at least 90 total yards over the previous five games.

The Raiders defense is the reason why the over is appealing in this matchup. They have allowed at least 32 points in three of their last four games, including that 41-point outburst by the Chiefs.

With the assumption that the Chiefs can at least score 30 points in this game, the Raiders won’t need to do a ton on offense to help push the total past the over, making this our NFL pick of the day.

The lopsided score the last time these two teams met is a bit worrisome. However, the Chiefs are only 2-5 against the spread at home this season.

When these two teams met in Kansas City last year, the Raiders pulled off a 40-32 win. They lost when these two teams played in Las Vegas, but barely, with the final scoring being 35-31 in favor of the Chiefs.

If the Raiders could get Waller back from injury, that would provide a huge boost for their chances of keeping this game close. But, even if he can’t play, look for the Raiders to keep things fairly close against their divisional foe.

Mike Barner’s season record: 15-23-1 (-10.25 units)

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
