Chargers in Rare Territory in Week 14

Chargers Rivers

Just how rough are things for the San Diego Chargers right now? The Bolts, who travel to Kansas City for a date with the Chiefs in Week 14, opened as 10-point underdogs for the tilt—just the third time since 2004 they’ve been tabbed as double-digit dogs. San Diego covered the spread on both of those occasions (Oct. 18, 2015 at Green Bay and Dec. 12, 2013 at Denver).

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Chiefs' last four games as favorites.
  • The Chargers are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Chiefs in December.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Chargers' last eight games as underdogs.

As bad as the Chargers have been, it’s been a much different story for K.C. The Chiefs have won six straight games after starting the season 1-5, becoming a sizzling bet during that span in the form of six covers in a row.

San Diego doesn’t have the best track record versus the Chiefs, as Philip Rivers and company have gone 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings with Kansas City.
