Kansas City Chiefs vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Sunday, November 22, 2020, 8:20 PM EST
Line: Raiders +8, O/U 57
Handicapper: David Luang
Pick: OVER 56.5
Sunday Night Football from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada will be the site of an AFC West rivalry when the Las Vegas Raiders (6-3) host the Kansas City Chiefs (8-1). These teams last met in Week 5 with the Raiders knocking off the defending champs, 40-32 as +11 point road underdogs. Early odds list the Chiefs as -8 point road chalk and the total is 56.5.
While the defending Super Bowl Champions were humbled in their lone loss to the Raiders it may have been a positive turning point for this team. The offense for Kansas City has been nearly unstoppable as they have posted 30 points or more in six of their nine contests this season. Mahomes is averaging 298.6 passing yards per game with 25 touchdowns and only one interception to lead this offense that ranks near the top of the NFL in most statistical catagories. Mahomes and the passing attack were able to record 340 yards in the air versus the Raiders in their last matchup with the QB passing for two touchdowns which is how the Chiefs will try to attack the Raiders on Sunday.
Las Vegas will ride a three game win streak entering this weekend’s matchup and look to gain ground in the AFC West race to prevent the Chiefs from running away with the division. Jon Gruden’s game plan for the Raiders vs the Chiefs in Week 5 was brilliant and the Raiders gained 480 total yards with big plays down field to complement Josh Jacobs 77 yards and two scores. The Chiefs defense has been riddled with injuries and a depleted secondary may open up the passing lanes for QB Derek Carr. Additionally, the Raiders may indeed find some opportunities on the ground throughout this contest as Kansas City is ranked 29th in stopping the run in allowing 138 yards per game.
This will be an exciting game between two head coaches that are very familiar with each other, in Reid and Gruden, and come from the same coaching tree. Look back to their first matchup for a blueprint of this second matchup with a similar outcome as I expect both teams to score points and push this total over 56.5 points.
