The Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs meet Sunday in week 5 NFL action at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Las Vegas Raiders look for their second road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Las Vegas Raiders have lost six of their last eight road games. Derek Carr is completing 73.6 percent of his passes for 1,095 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. Carr has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last eight games. Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow have combined for 446 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Nelson Agholor has eight receptions. The Las Vegas Raiders ground game is averaging 115.3 yards per contest, and Josh Jacobs leads the way with 300 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Las Vegas is allowing 30 points and 388.5 yards per game. Johnathan Abram leads the Las Vegas Raiders with 23 tackles, Maxx Crosby has three sacks and Nicholas Morrow has one interception.
The Kansas City Chiefs look for another win to start a NFL season 5-0 for the third time in the last four years. The Kansas City Chiefs have won six straight home games. Patrick Mahomes is completing 67.3 percent of his passes for 1,134 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Mahomes has two or more touchdown passes in six of his last seven games. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill have combined for 583 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Sammy Watkins has 19 receptions. The Kansas City Chiefs ground game is averaging 129.3 yards per contest, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire leads the way with 304 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Kansas City is allowing 17.5 points and 356 yards per game. Anthony Hitchens leads the Kansas City Chiefs with 28 tackles, Chris Jones has 3.5 sacks and L'Jarius Sneed has two interceptions.
The Raiders are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games in October, 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Chiefs are 8-0-1 ATS in their last 9 home games, 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Raiders last 4 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Chiefs last 5 games overall. The Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Kansas City and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 22-8 in the last 30 meetings.
The Las Vegas Raiders have not looked good defensively this season and that secondary is likely going to get picked to shreds by this Kansas City passing attack. The Chiefs played well below their standards against the Patriots on Monday night and still managed to cover a double-digit spread. The Chiefs have won each of the last five games against the Raiders, and the last three meetings were decided by an average of 27 points. Ten of the last 13 times the Chiefs have beaten the Raiders, it was decided by double-digit points. Mahomes is going to put up crazy fantasy numbers against this Raiders secondary.
I'll lay the big number with the Chiefs at home.
