The Kansas City Chiefs look for another victory after beating the Jacksonville Jaguars opening week. The Kansas City Chiefs have split their last six road games. Patrick Mahomes is completing 75.8 percent of his passes for 378 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Mahomes has two or more touchdown passes in each of his last 12 games. Sam Watkins and Travis Kelce have combined for 186 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Damien Williams has six receptions. The Kansas City Chiefs ground game is averaging 113 yards per contest, and LeSean McCoy leads the way with 81 yards on 10 carries. Defensively, Kansas City is allowing 26 points and 428 yards per game. Juan Thornhill leads the Kansas City Chiefs with eight tackles, Emmanuel Ogbah has one sack and Frank Clark has one interception.
The Oakland Raiders look for another upset win after beating the Denver Broncos last Monday night. The Oakland Raiders have won their last three home games. Derek Carr is completing 84.6 percent of his passes for 259 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions. Carr has one or less touchdown passes in five of his last seven games. Tyrell Williams and Darren Waller have combined for 175 receiving yards and one touchdown while Josh Jacobs has one reception. The Oakland Raiders ground game is averaging 98 yards per contest, and Jacobs leads the way with 85 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 16 points and 344 yards per game.

The Chiefs are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 road games, 13-4 ATS in their last 17 vs. AFC West and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 vs. AFC. The Raiders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games in September and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass. The Chiefs are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 meetings in Oakland and the favorite is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings. The under is 4-0-1 in Raiders last 5 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Chiefs last 9 games overall.
The Kansas City Chiefs have split their last 10 games ATS as a road favorite. The Oakland Raiders are 6-6-1 ATS in their last 13 games as a home underdog. The Chiefs have won eight of the last nine meetings against the Raiders and seven of those eight wins were decided by at least seven points. The Raiders looked good in their season opener against the Broncos, but it's a completely different ballgame when going up against this KC offense and a Joe Flacco led offense. The Raiders also lose some of that magic in the air they had on a late Monday night with this being a Sunday afternoon game. If the Kansas City Chiefs offense gets going, I'm not confident the Raiders have the horses to hang around. I'll lay the touchdown.
