The AFC West is one of the most difficult divisions in the NFL to bet on, considering their teams are really unstable. Well, two of those teams meet this Thursday night as the Kansas City Chiefs meet the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium.
San Diego is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games when playing at home against Kansas City, but they didn’t look good against the Browns last week.
“You saw it. I saw it,” Norv Turner said. “We go out and trust each other and this loss is on all of us. When you have opportunities to make plays, you’ve got to do it”.
“He got away from us,” Turner said about Trent Richarson, who ran for 122 yards on Sunday. “He’s an outstanding young player, but on his touchdown run, we had a number of guys who didn’t make a play”.
The Chiefs will try to run the ball with Jamaal Charles, who had an off day against the Raiders last week.
“It’s unfortunate because I think the guys put a lot into it during the week,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “You just have to go forward and do the best you can”.
The Chiefs are 25-16 ATS as a road underdog since 2007, and 12-5 ATS as a double-digit underdog since 2006.
The line has the Chargers as 10 point favorites, and the home team has won 16 of the last 22 meetings.
Also, keep in mind the total has gone UNDER in 6 of San Diego’s last 8 games when playing at home against Kansas City
