NFL Betting Predictions: San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs
Monday Night at 8:30pm Eastern, the San Diego Chargers (4-2) travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (3-3). BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines show the Chargers as -160 favorite over the Chiefs, giving up -3 points via the spread.
Last week the Kansas City Chiefs shut out the Oakland Raiders 28-0. The KC offense didn’t exactly play great in this win, which was gift wrapped in a basket by their defense. QB Matt Cassel went 15/30 for 161 yards and 2 interceptions. The running game didn’t exactly get it going either with RB Jackie Battle leading the way 16 attempts 76 yards.
The KC offense didn’t play great however their defense dominated, by not just shutting the Raiders out, but putting up 14 points via interceptions in the process. The KC secondary had 113 total yards of interceptions returns. CB Brandon Flowers had 2 interceptions, and Derrick Johnson had 12 tackles, in the one sided victory.
The Chargers lost a heartbreaker to the Jets last week 27-21, they were leading until a pass from QB Phillip Rivers bounced off the hand of WR Vincent Jackson into Jets CB Darrelle Revis hand and was returned 64 yards, and later brought in for the touchdown. The interception Rivers through later sealed the deal, and this time was definitely on the QB. Rivers went 16/32 for 179 yards 1 TD and 2 INT, he currently has the most interceptions out of any AFC quarterback at 9.
San Diego’s defense didn’t play as bad as the scoreboard would indicate, safety Eric Weddle had a huge interception in the Chargers endzone taking points away from the Jets. LB Sean Phillips had 2 sacks, the defense in all gave up 268 total yards, 96 rushing, 172 passing.
My Prediction: The Chiefs coming off of three huge wins in a row, while the Chargers coming off such a demoralizing loss, I just don’t see how KC doesn’t pull off a win here in Arrowhead. I got the Chiefs winning the game, take the moneyline for some added value.
