Oakland Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs Odds

7-7TEAM RECORD6-8

Two heated AFC West rivals have produced one consistent betting result over the years, and that is an UNDER play.

In the past 13 meetings of the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, the UNDER prevailed 11 times. Point spread bettors have pocketed great profits betting the Raiders at KC, as it's a 9-2-1 ATS run the past 12 visits from the Raiders.

The Chiefs of course come off that crazy upset of the 13-0 Packers last week and this is a perfect letdown spot for them against the Raiders (who choked away a win against Detroit in Week 15). Within the division, Oakland has been on fire against the spread with a 9-2 ATS run. Kansas City has played 7 straight UNDERs within the AFC West.
