Los Angeles Charger +3
Chiefs opened as a three-point favorite and this spread has grown as high as Chiefs -4 launched from Week 14, but since then it has stabilized again at the opening numbers Wednesday afternoon.
Selection: Chief -3. Kansas City has pretty much cleaned up its act since these clubs faced off against each other in Week 3. The first leg completely killed the Captains in that competition as they gave LA the ball four times. and they can turn that into a total of 20 points. . Since Week 8, KC has flipped the ball six times (third least in the NFL). Meanwhile, their defense has played much better. Since this winning streak began, the Chiefs are allowing 10.8 points per game (second least in the NFL). Justin Herbert has been playing at a very high level, so this is arguably Kansas City’s biggest challenge to date, but it’s hard to fade the Chiefs right now.
Main trend: Chargers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against AFC.
Over / Below total
The total for this game has increased quite a bit compared to last week. It opened at 49.5 but quickly climbed above the 50 mark after Week 14. Tuesday was where it was most volatile, up a point and a half from 50.5 to 52, taking the lead on Thursday.
Selection: Under 52 years old. These are two of the most talented defenders in the game at the moment, but don’t fall asleep with these defences. Kansas City’s defense has grown into an elite unit through this winning streak, allowing for the second-lowest point in the NFL since Week 8. Meanwhile, the Chargers edged past the ninth-ranked defense in the NFL. NFL in DVOA in season and going head to head Patrick Mahomes, who has two touches in the last three games combined. Under is also 4-1 in the last 5 home games and 6-2 for the Main Team in the last 8 games overall.

Mahomes has only come across this passing prop four times this season and only once in the Captain’s six-game winning streak (406 yards, Week 10 at Raiders). During the season, he’s averaged around 280 yards per game and 258.2 yards of passes per game since Week 8. Meanwhile, the Chargers are one of the better second-placers in the league and allow the Opposing midfielders are averaging 207.3 passes per game this season (198.7 yards per game over the past three weeks). While Mahomes certainly has the talent to push through this number, these trends have me leaning towards the -105 bottom.
Justin Herbert props
- Passing to the ground: 1.5 (Over -210, Below +170)
- Passing the pitch: 289.5 (Above -115, Under -115)
- Interceptor: 0.5 (Above -110, Under -120)

- Quick plunge: 16.5 (Over -120, Under -110)
Herbert threw multiple touchdowns in four straight games coming up on Thursday, but didn’t have a ton of value in his Over at -210. I’ll be looking at Over on his dash to assist 16.5. Recently, Herbert has been flocking to the field and has surpassed this number in four of the last five games. During that period, he averaged 34.6 yards of javelin per game.
The props players need to consider
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Total number of prisons: Over 52.5 (-130). Edwards-Helaire had one of his best games of the season against the Chargers in Week 3, where he dashed 100 yards with 17 carry. With the Chargers still grappling with the run (32nd in the NFL in DVOA), he should be prepared for another strong day on the ground. For the past three weeks, LA is dropping 126 yards of javelin per game.
Travis Kelce Total yards received: Over 64.5 (-115). Going to buy at low price on Kelce here. He had three of the season’s lowest catches in 27 yards in each of his previous games. That said, this game could be a nice comeback opportunity for Kelce as the Chargers are allowing 11.6 meters per reception towards tight finishes this season (fifth best in the NFL). ) and 6.1 meters after catch per reception (third in the NFL). Kelce also has 104 yards gain on this unit in Week 3.
