The Chargers are laying 13.5 points in pro football betting with a total of 45. NFL betting has San Diego rolling over Denver last week to take a one game lead in the AFC West. The Chargers have won five in a row overall but they could be tested by a Kansas City team that is suddenly playing well. The Chiefs will try and win three straight on Sunday for the first time in three years. The Chiefs shocked the Pittsburgh Steelers last week and will try and carry that NFL betting momentum into this week’s game.
The Chargers were very impressive in pro football betting last week as they routed Denver by a score of 32-3. They were also great the last time they faced the Chiefs as they pummeled them last month in Kansas City by a score of 37-7 in NFL betting. The Chargers are not overlooking Kansas City though after what happened last week. "For Pittsburgh to go in there and lose to Kansas City, that's a real eye opener to everybody in the NFL," offensive tackle Marcus McNeill said.
One of the players that San Diego will recognize is wide receiver Chris Chambers who they cu just a few weeks ago. Chambers signed with Kansas City and has been superb. He caught four passes for a season-high 119 yards last week. Kansas City has been very good in NFL betting recently as an underdog. They are 5-1 vs. the NFL betting odds in their last 6 games as an underdog. They have also been good in pro football betting within the division as they are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. the AFC West. Kansas City has been good on the road in NFL betting as they are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 road games. The underdog in this series is 11-5-1 vs. the NFL betting lines in their last 17 meetings.
The NFL betting numbers for San Diego are also good. The Chargers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Chargers are 23-10-4 in pro football betting in their last 37 vs. the AFC West.
Looking at the NFL betting total we see that five of the last seven Kansas City games within their division have gone under. San Diego is the opposite as 7 of their last 12 in the division have gone over in NFL betting.
