Football betting on Sunday includes an AFC West rivalry game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.
Both teams will be wearing their old uniforms in this game so it should be colorful. The Raiders are 2-point NFL betting favorites against the Chiefs with a total of 36.5.
Football betting has not been very popular on either team this season but that doesn’t mean they can’t cover the spread. Last week the Chiefs lost at Jacksonville 24-21 but covered the NFL betting pointspread. Kansas City has been a good fourth quarter team so they can get those backdoor covers. The Chiefs have scored 67 points in the final quarter of games this season.
Oakland is coming off a bye week after losing against San Diego 24-16. The Raiders covered the big football betting number in that game. Kansas City has won their last six trips to Oakland and is trying to become the first team in NFL history to win seven consecutive road games against the Raiders. The Chiefs are 10-4 at Oakland since 1995. In the six-game winning football betting streak, five of the games have been decided by just seven points or less.
The teams met earlier this season in football betting at Kansas City and the Raiders won an ugly 13-10 game. The Chiefs defense has held the Raiders to 20 points or less in six of the last seven football betting meetings between the two teams.
Even though Kansas City is a weak team in football betting they do have some positive trends:
The Chiefs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. the AFC West.
The Chiefs are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games as a road underdog.
The Chiefs are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Oakland.
Oakland has simply been horrible all the way around in NFL betting. They are simply a disgrace at home laying football betting points.
The Raiders are 15-36-1 in their last 52 home games.
The Raiders are 0-9 ATS in their last 9 games as a home football betting favorite.
As you look at the football betting total you want to remember that four of the last six Kansas City games within the division have gone under. Five of the last seven Oakland NFL betting games in the AFC West have gone under. Seven of the last ten Oakland home games have gone under. The last four meetings between the teams in Oakland have gone under the football betting total.
