Raiders Trying to Sweep Chiefs, Stay Perfect in AFC West as Home Underdogs

Arden Key (99) of the Las Vegas Raiders celebrates a hit on Drew Lock of the Denver Broncos during an NFL football game at Allegiant Stadium on November 15, 2020, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Following back-to-back wins over divisional opponents, the Las Vegas Raiders (6-3) will try to make it three in a row when they host the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (8-1) as solid home underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. The Raiders handed the Chiefs their lone loss of the season back in Week 5, stunning K.C. 40-32 as 10.5-point road underdogs, and Las Vegas is the only team that is 3-0 in the division.

Opening Odds Analysis

There has been some early line movement in favor of the home underdog and the OVER, moving Kansas City down to -6 and the total up as high as 57. Whether those betting trends continue remains to be seen, but the total might be the more likely of the two to move based on the result of the previous meeting. Both of these teams can score almost at will on their opponents, so the better defensive team will likely win this one.

Kansas City News & Notes

It is safe to say the Chiefs overlooked the Raiders the first time around, and that was even the case within the game when they were leading 21-10 in the second quarter.

Las Vegas battled back and was more than happy to go into halftime tied 24-24 before scoring 16 straight points after the intermission, with all of them coming in the fourth quarter. Kansas City was able to score one more touchdown with a two-point conversion, but it was too little, too late for the defending Super Bowl champions.

Bettors should expect a fired-up Chiefs team here seeking revenge for their only setback this year, and head coach Andy Reid even said he was upset that the Raiders took a victory lap around Arrowhead Stadium in their buses following their win, adding even more fuel to the fire. 

Las Vegas News & Notes

The Las Vegas defense has come through big-time in helping the team win its last three games, holding the opposition to an average of less than 15 points since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left Allegiant Stadium with a 45-20 victory in Week 7.

Last Sunday in a 37-12 rout of the Denver Broncos, the Raiders forced five turnovers, including four interceptions by quarterback Drew Lock. Las Vegas also used a strong rushing attack to overpower Denver, led by running back Josh Jacobs, who had 21 carries for 112 yards and two touchdowns.

Backup Devontae Booker added 16 carries for 81 yards and also scored twice while kicker Daniel Carlson rounded out the scoring with three field goals. With that kind of offense and defense, the Raiders will be tough for anyone to beat.

Betting Pick: Chiefs -6

You have to go back to 2012 to find the last time Kansas City lost two straight games in this series, according to the Odds Shark NFL Database. In fact, that is also the last time the Chiefs failed to cover the spread in consecutive meetings as well. Las Vegas is 3-12 straight up and 5-10 against the spread in 15 meetings since then, so take Kansas City.
