Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs Odds, Analysis, NFL Betting Pick”

After scuffling their way through the first three months of the season as one of the NFL's bigger disappointments, the Oakland Raiders have managed to claw their way back into contention in the mediocre AFC West. It also doesn't help they have the hardest schedule left in the division - two divisional games and showdowns with the NFC East's Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. Kansas City just came from a 38-31 loss to the New York Jets in which Alex Smith completed 19 of 33 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns, and ran for 70 yards.

Kansas City opened as a four-point favorite against the Oakland Raiders for Week 14, and most sportsbooks have maintained that spread.

As for the Chiefs, they'll have a chance to redeem themselves and put some distance back between themselves and the rest of the division when they host the Raiders and Chargers in back-to-back weeks. They can win here too with another good effort.

"We were able to do enough to do enough to get a win that night", Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. Kansas City is also 8-2 straight up in its last 10 December games. And the Chiefs, who started 5-0, have lost six of their last seven. Teams hate dealing with the twin enforcers at defensive end, Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, nearly as much as they hate dealing with Rivers.

That outcome ended the Chiefs' 11-game winning streak against AFC West opponents. That will not happen, as Kansas City has owned Oakland recently.

Look for Kansas City to win its fifth in a row over Oakland at home and improve to 4-1 ATS during that stretch. "This is it. We're in the fourth quarter of the season and three of the (remaining) four are division games".

The favored team is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games in this matchup. Smith has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last eight games.
