Kansas City Chiefs -6.5
Los Angeles Chargers +6.5
The line on this game opened with the Chiefs listed as a 7-point favorite and the wise guys have grabbed the points. Whether that is a smart move or not is debatable, as the Chargers have major injury problems and it figures to be hard for the Chargers defense to contain Kansas City’s offense.
Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers NFL Free Pick
The Chiefs have the superior offense, while neither defense is anything special. The Chargers simply couldn’t make enough plays last week to stop San Francisco’s offense and Kansas City’s offense is even better. The difference this week is that Kansas City’s defense isn’t any good. The Chiefs have not been a good team to be on this season even though they have won seven games. I don’t know that I want to lay a TD on the road, but I don’t trust the Chargers enough to take them because of all of their injuries. One thing that should happen in this game is a lot of scoring. Neither of these defenses figures to contain the opposing offense, so I will go over the total.
The Pick: Over 50
