This AFC divisional showdown features the best and the worst of the AFC West as the first-place 3-1 Kansas City Chiefs face the basement-dwelling 1-3 Las Vegas Raiders, two pass-heavy teams that have begun to fall back on their rushing attacks for success as opposing defenses get better at neutralizing their air attacks.

Vegas RB Josh Jacobs is coming off a career game in Week 4 (28 cars, 144 yds, 5.1 YPC, 2 TDs) and is fast becoming an important part of the Raiders’ offense as they reset their game plan after their 0-3 start to the season, except the KC Chiefs are the number one team in the NFL against the rush after keeping opponents to just 65.8 yards on the ground per game.

It is typically tough to stop the Chiefs’ future Hall of Fame QB Patrick Mahomes as he begins to adjust to life without Tyreek ‘Cheetah’ Hill (now in Miami) but watch for his favorite target TE m to get lots of attention in this one as well as playmaking WR JuJu Smith-Schuster who will most likely be facing Raiders CBs Amik Robertson who has an interception this year.

On average, the Chiefs score the 2nd most points per game in the league (32.3) while the Raiders score the 10th most every game (24) which makes over 56 points total, plenty to win this bet if you take the over, but that is assuming that both of these offenses will be effective, with Raiders’ new HC Josh McDaniels facing KC guru HC Andy Reid.

Probably a good idea to measure up these defenses just to be sure, with the 13th ranked Chiefs defense allowing opponents to score an average of 24 points every outing while the 22nd ranked Raiders defense gives up 25 points per game, or 49 total which is two points under what the odds makers are predicting, so if you think this will be a defensive struggle bet the under here.

Las Vegas might be without some key players due to injury, with TE Foster Moreau and WR Hunter Renfrow (concussion) listed as questionable to play, and on the other side of the field the Kansas City roster is also banged up, listing as questionable OG Trey Smith (pectoral), CB L’Jarius Sneed (ankle) and K Harrison Butker (ankle), so be sure to check back in at game time.

To bet on the Kansas City Chiefs to win straight up will cost you $350 to win that back plus $100, and if you think that the Raiders will pull an upset and outright beat KC, a $100 bet will win you $275 plus your bet, this battle of AFC playmakers most likely going to come down to whether Las Vegas has an answer for Chiefs QB Mahomes.

Watch for Raiders star DE Maxx Crosby and his defense that has allowed opposing rush offenses just 3.9 yards per carry, but Las Vegas is struggling to take down QBs with just 5 team sacks this season – second least out of 32 teams – and Crosby himself has four of those sacks, so expect his teammates DE Chandler Jones and NT Andrew Billings to begin to step up here.

With Chiefs CB Rock Ya-Sin (knee) questionable to play, Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo will most likely assign CBs L’Jarius Sneed and Rashad Fenton to cover Vegas deep threat WR Davante Adams who has been hit or miss with his QB Carr, the two former Fresno State teammates connecting for 26 receptions for 290 yards and 3 TDs, with big games in Week 1 and Week 4.
