NFL Football Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers rush into this Thursday Night matchup sporting a 10-3 record that ranks them 2nd in the AFC West. Considering that the Chiefs own a 1-game lead over Los Angeles, this is without a doubt the single most important game of the season for the Chargers. Furthermore, Los Angeles opened up the season with a 38-28 loss to Kansas City. Now they look to avenge that loss and secure an AFC West title all in a single go. So how do the Chargers measure up to the dominant Chiefs? Currently the Chargers are averaging 28.2 per game, which is quite a bit less than the 36.2 that Kansas City delivers. Defensively the Chargers have the edge as they only give up 20.8 per game while the Chiefs give up 27.0. Ultimately it will be up to the Chargers offense to get the job done this upcoming Thursday night.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (3,638 passing yards, 29 TD, 6 INT), Melvin Gordon (802 rushing yards, 9 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (1,074 receiving yards, 6 TD, 1 F).
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs enter this Week 15 contest flashing a brilliant 11-2 record. With Kansas City’s two losses of the season coming against the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams – two of the best teams in the league, there’s no questioning Kansas City’s prowess. Now the Chiefs look to put the final nail in the coffin of the AFC West by taking care of the Chargers at home. All in all Kansas City is 9-1 in their last 10 meetings versus the Chargers, so they should have no problems taking care of this. Granted the Chiefs will now have to step onto the field without Kareem Hunt, who was one of the most dynamic backs in the league. There’s no question this will impact their team but ultimately they should have enough options to rebound just fine.
Players to Watch: Patrick Mahomes (4,300 passing yards, 43 TD, 11 INT), Spencer Ware (246 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Tyreek Hill (1,258 receiving yards, 11 TD, 0 F).
