NFL bet numbers have the Chiefs as about a field goal favorite in this game. The Raiders are coming off a tough loss on Monday to the San Diego Chargers as they gave up a late TD to lose 24-20. It was just another frustrating loss for the Raiders but bettors were happy as Oakland did cover the football betting pointspread.
