3 units on Kansas City PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Kansas City Chiefs did not give themselves a chance to win or cover many games through mid-season. Up until that point, they were -20 in turnovers, and virtually eliminated any possibility of winning, despite out-gaining many of their opponents from the line of scrimmage. Things have changed, and although they have just two wins, this has become a competitive team. The Chiefs have turned the ball over just four times in their last five games, resulting in three ATS wins, more than they had in their first eight games. The Raiders are a different story. This team has either quit, or they are just that bad. In the end, it doesn't matter as either are good fade reasons. They are yielding just shy of 36 points per game in their last six games, and scoring just 14.3 points per game in their last four. That is a three touchdown gap, and one that is likely not going to get fixed anytime soon. To be favored here is a real stretch. In his coaching career, Romeo Crennel is 9-1 ATS on the road following a road loss and 17-4 ATS after allowing 30+ points in his previous game. Play on Kansas City.
