NFL Betting Lines for Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs MatchPosted by: Mariela Miranda
Before the 2017 online NFL betting season kicked off, online sportsbooks were harping that the AFC West would be one of the toughest divisions in pro football. As we draw nearer to the conclusion of the 2017 regular season, it’s clear that NFL sportsbooks knew what they were talking about.
The West currently looks like this; the 6-6 Kansas City Chiefs, the 6-6 Los Angeles Chargers, and the 6-6 Oakland Raiders are tied at the top followed by the 3-9 Denver Broncos. While the Chiefs, Chargers and Raiders might all have .500 records, there isn’t an NFL bettor on the planet that would consider either one of those teams an easy draw. This Sunday’s Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs matchup should help thrust some clarity into the division. Let’s mulch over some parlay betting tips for this divisional matchup.
Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs – Sunday, December 10th
When: 1:00 pm ET
Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
Stream: CBS Sports, NFL Game Pass
Online NFL Betting Lines:
Oakland Raiders +4 (-115) 47 (-105) +166
Kansas City Chiefs -4 (-105) 47 (-115) -195
The Raiders enter this Sunday’s pairing with a 6-6 record and an opportunity to take the lead in the division. This weekend’s Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs matchup marks the second time these two teams have crossed paths, with the Raiders coming out on top the first time around 31-30. However, considering how close that matchup ended up being, there’s no guarantee that the Raiders will triumph this Sunday. Nevertheless, the Raiders were pegged as underdogs in the first round as well, so maybe it’s not that bad of an idea to back them this Sunday.
Additionally, NFL fans betting on this matchup should avoid wagering on the spread. Neither team has a great ATS record since Oakland is 4-7-1 against the spread this season while the Chiefs are a mediocre 6-6. Furthermore, the fact that the first matchup between these two was decided by 1-point lets you know that this matchup will come down to the wire as well. Considering that the spread is set at 4 points, there’s no question that NFL bettors will be better off picking making their bet on the money line.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs may have lost their last 4 games consecutively, but that isn’t stopping the online NFL betting lines from favoring them this Sunday. Oddly enough, the Chiefs were pegged as the online sportsbook favorite in each of those matchups. This would certainly lead most people to start pegging Kansas City as an underdog each Sunday. Notwithstanding logic, it seems that NFL bookmakers don’t share this sentiment. Instead we’re seeing that bookmakers are returning the Chiefs to return to their former ways. However, with the end of the regular season in sight, sportsbook players should avoid making such ill decisions.
