The Raiders are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Chiefs are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 vs. AFC West, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win. The Raiders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Kansas City and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The over is 13-6 in Chiefs last 19 games overall. The under is 8-2-1 in Raiders last 11 vs. AFC.
The Oakland Raiders are 3-5 ATS in their last eight games as a double-digit underdog. The Kansas City Chiefs are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games as a double-digit favorite. Just when it looked like the Oakland Raiders were a team to keep an eye on, they lose by 31 points to the garbage New York Jets. The Kansas City Chiefs have had an extra week to prepare for this game and kind of get things back on track after some shaky recent play on both sides of the ball. AFC West games can be weird and tight, but I'll take a rest Chiefs team and Andy Reid over what the Raiders showed last week. The Kansas City Chiefs could look like last years club in this game and produce a beatdown victory.
