Chargers visit Chiefs in massive Thursday Night Football NFL betting matchup | News Article by

Thursday Night Football NFL betting has a huge divisional matchup on tap in Week 15 when the Los Angeles Chargers visit the Kansas City Chiefs. Here’s a look at the odds and nfl betting lines for this AFC West war:

Kansas City opened as a 3.5-point home favorite and early money from sharp players forced books to rapidly adjust the juice on the home side with action coming in on the visiting Chargers.

Some books held on as long as they could to the 3.5-point spread but were eventually forced to drop to a field goal, which was instantly snapped up at Chiefs -3. That was enough money to push the line back to its original spot but there could be another move back to three once the public gets involved Thursday night.

Kansas City hasn’t been impressive in recent games and has failed to cover the spread in four straight contests – depending on which line you bet KC at for its memorable Monday nighter with the L.A. Rams. The Chiefs struggled with a run-heavy Baltimore attack last Sunday and continue to be one of the softer defensive teams in the NFL.

They may catch a break against the Bolts Thursday night. Los Angeles is expected to be without running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, taking some punch out of the 12th-ranked rushing offense in the league. On the other hand, Kansas City got some good news around the foot injury to WR Tyreek Hill, who is probable for Thursday night. However, RB Spencer Ware is a question mark for a thinning KC ground game due to a nagging hamstring.

Kansas City has covered the pointspread in four straight meetings with the Chargers and is 8-2 against the spread in the past 10 meetings between these divisional foes, going back to 2013.

The Over/Under for this primetime matchup opened at 56.5 and has dropped as low as 52.5 at some books. Despite being a battle between offenses ranked No. 1 and No. 5 in points per game, early money has steamed this number down as many as four points.

The Chiefs have played Over in three straight games heading into Thursday, mainly due to their porous defense which is allowing an average of 37 points on 406 yards against per game during that three-game stretch. The Bolts run a much more methodical pace than their AFC West rivals. Los Angeles is among the top teams in time of possession at 30:52 per game and have a much stingier defense, giving up just under 21 points per outing. Though, with the injuries to the rushing attack, L.A. may be forced to pass much more – especially if they fall behind early - and that could help boost the value with the Over.

Kansas City won a 38-28 shootout in L.A. way back in Week 1, covering as a 3.5-point underdog and blowing away the 48-point betting total. The weather for Thursday night is calling for temperatures hovering around freezing with a chance of rain later in the game and winds blowing between 15-20 mph.
