Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster have combined for 1,355 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while Marquez Valdes-Scantling has 26 receptions.

The Chiefs are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Chargers are 21-44-1 ATS in their last 66 home games and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games in November. The over is 7-1 in Chiefs last 8 road games. The over is 6-2 in Chargers last 8 home games. The Chiefs are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

The Los Angeles Chargers better get healthy on offense and get some key guys back, or they’re going to have trouble keeping up in this game. I’d check the status of Gerald Everett and Keenan Allen before betting this game. With that said, this is a big division game and there’s a history here of competitive meetings. When they clashed in September, the Chiefs won by 3 points. Six of the last 8 meetings between the Chiefs and Chargers have been decided by 7 or fewer points. I’ll take a shot with the home dog.
