Prediction

Chiefs 27, Chargers 17

Moneyline ( ?)

The Chiefs have plenty to play for, with a first-round bye in the playoffs still within reach. They won’t be resting starters, and should put the pedal down in Week 17.

Take the CHIEFS (-385) to win outright on Sunday, especially with the moneyline being a reasonable price.

Against the Spread ( ?)

The Chiefs are only 8.5-point favorites over the Chargers, who have lost five of their last six. The last time they met, the Chiefs won by seven points, but this game is at home and Los Angeles is playing poorly as of late.

Kansas City will win this game comfortably. The only concern is Andy Reid pulling starters in a blowout. Still, take the CHIEFS -8.5 (-110) to cover and win.

Over/Under ( ?)

The over/under is 46.5 points. The Chiefs haven’t allowed more than 17 points in any of their last five games and the Chargers have only scored more than 20 once in their last five.

Bet the UNDER 46.5 (-134), partly because the Chiefs defense is playing extremely well right now.
