Chiefs Chargers TNF Picks

The Kansas City Chiefs have won 12 straight games in December and look to continue their current hot streak in Week 15. The Chiefs have won six in a row, and visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football as small road favorites. 

Even though the Chiefs are 34-5 SU in their last 39 divisional games, the ATS mark is underwhelming at 14-18 ATS in their last 32 games. Meanwhile the Chargers are 5-1 ATS in their last six divisional games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games when playing as the underdog.

The Chiefs may win this game, but the Chargers will cover the current 3-point spread at FanDuel.

Why the Chiefs will cover the spread

The Chiefs’ defense has been the story of the last month. After being on pace to give up the most rushing yards in NFL history through the first month, they rank third in DVOA since Week 6, only behind the Cowboys and Patriots. 

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense seems to be getting back on track. They are 3rd in EPA per play since Week 12, and more importantly, the run game has caught fire. They are 5th in EPA per rush since Week 10 and rushed for 132 yards last week against the Raiders. 

Why the Chargers will cover the spread

Justin Herbert’s throw to Jaylen Guyton last week was insane. We have all watched it multiple times and still don’t know how he did it. Herbert is second in EPA per play out of all quarterbacks since Week 9 and has the Chargers offense sitting at 3rd in offensive DVOA. 

The Chargers’ defense had the formula to slow down the Chiefs offense back in Week 3, holding the Chiefs to 24 points and forcing two interceptions from Mahomes. If I had to pick one coach in the NFL to shut him down for one game, it would be Brandon Staley. 

Chiefs Chargers Prediction

This should be closer to a pick ’em spread. This has all the makings of a one or two-point Chiefs victory.
