There is no real home field advantage for either of these teams, with the game being played in Mexico City. The Chiefs are 4-1 ATS away from Kansas City, where as the Chargers are 2-3 away from Los Angeles. The Chargers defense has gone under the radar in allowing the 5th fewest passing yds per game. Their rushing defense isn't great but then the Chiefs haven't rushed the ball that well either. The Chiefs rush defense has been pitiful, allowing almost 150 yds on the ground. This could be key for Melvin Gordon and the Chargers offense. I really want to pick the Chiefs here, but I think the Chargers have the edge offensively and defensively. I think the Chargers will win, but I will play it safe and take the points. Final score prediction, Chiefs win and Chargers cover, 27-26.
