Chiefs vs Raiders Free Pick

Alex Smith opposing Derek Carr on Thursday Night FootballWeek 7 of the NFL regular season kicks off with Thursday Night Football when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Oakland Raiders in an AFC West showdown. The current line on top sportsbooks has Kansas City favored by 3 points with the over/under point total on 47.

Entering this game, Kansas City on the season is 5-1 straight up and against the spread. On the road, the Chiefs are 3-0 SU and ATS. Oakland on the season is 2-4 SU and ATS. At home, the Raiders are 1-2 SU and ATS.

Kansas City lost for the first time last weekend, when Pittsburgh exposed a defensive weakness and downed the Chiefs 19-13. Oakland after winning its first two games of the season has now lost four in a row losing last week to the Los Angeles Chargers 17-16.

The Chiefs opened the season 5-0 due to a rushing attack led by rookie running back Kareem Hunt and big play wide receiver Tyreek Hill. However, last week against the Steelers, Hill was injured and could have a concussion.

Defensively, the Chiefs were dominated by the Steelers offensive line as Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell carried the ball 32 times for 179 yards.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 223 yards, but the running game for Chiefs was almost non-existent with just 28 yards on the ground, and Hunt held to just 21 yards.

Oakland has averaged just 13.2 points a game during its current losing streak of four straight. Derek Carr returned to quarterback the Raiders after missing the Raiders loss to Baltimore with an injured back, but it was obvious Carr is still not 100%. Carr threw for just 171 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions.

The Raiders running attack has not been very good through six games, with offseason acquisition Marshawn Lynch not living up to lofty expectations after returning from one year of retirement.

The Raiders defense let them down as well, as the Chargers drove down the field on the final drive to kick a field goal as time ran out giving them the 1-point victory.

Offensively, the Raiders are No. 30 in the league in total yards per game and No. 26 in passing yards.

Kansas City is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games versus opponents from the AFC West.

Oakland is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games against opponents from the AFC West.

With this free pick, we like Kansas City to cover.

Steelers vs Chiefs Free Pick

Le'Veon Bell's rushing will be key in game versus ChiefsWeek 6 of the NFL regular season features a big AFC showdown when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Kansas City Chiefs. The current line on top sportsbooks has Kansas City favored by 4 points with the over/under point total on 47.

Entering this game, Pittsburgh on the season is 3-2 straight up and 2-3 against the spread. On the road, the Steelers are 2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS. Kansas City on the season is 5-0 SU and ATS. At home, the Chiefs are 2-0 SU and ATS.

The last time Kansas City lost a game was to Pittsburgh, when the Steelers ousted the Chiefs from the playoffs last season 18-16 at Arrowhead in Kansas City. The Chiefs are the only team that remains unbeaten in the NFL this season after five weeks.

Pittsburgh beat Kansas City twice last season – a rout of 43-14 during the regular season and the 2-point victory in the playoffs. In the playoff loss the offense for Kansas City could only generate 227 total yards.

However, this season the offense for the Chiefs is No. 2 in the NFL in total offense and No. 1 in scoring. At the same time, the Steelers are 1-2 over their last three games played, including an embarrassing 30-9 loss last weekend to Jacksonville in a game that saw veteran Ben Roethlisberger toss five interceptions.

The Steelers have struggled on offense despite having stars such as running back Le’Veon Bell and the league’s top receiver in Antonio Brown, who already has three games with 100 or more yards receiving. A big key in Sunday’s game will be Brown’s matchup against Marcus Peters the top cornerback for the Chiefs.

Pittsburgh’s pass defense is the best in the NFL, but the defense against the rush is nearly the opposite at No. 28.

Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith has a number of offensive weapons at his disposal. Rookie Kareem Hunt is leading the NFL in rushing with 609 yards as well as yards from scrimmage with 775. Tyreek Hill is a depth threat at receiver.

Defensively, the Chiefs have not played as well as in previous seasons ranking No. 27 in total defense.

Pittsburgh is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games versus opponents with a record above .500.

Kansas City is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games against opponents from the AFC.

With this free pick, we like Pittsburgh to cover.

Chiefs vs Texans Free Pick

Week 5 ends its Sunday schedule with a Sunday Night Football showdown between the visiting Kansas City Chiefs and the host Houston Texans. The current line on top sportsbooks has the game as a PICK, with the over/under point total sitting on 45.

Entering this game, Kansas City is 4-0 straight up and against the spread. On the road, the Chiefs are 2-0 SU and ATS. Houston on the season is 2-2 SU and 3-1 ATS. At home, the Texans are 1-1 SU and ATS.

Kansas City enters this game as the only unbeaten team in the NFL after four weeks but will have a stiff test against Houston and the Texans’ rookie sensation at quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The Chiefs will be coming in off a late game field that beat the Washington Redskins Monday night. Kansas City has its own flashy rookie in running back Kareem Bell who leads the NFL in rushing with 502 yards and has 659 yards from scrimmage.

Houston has been a different team since Watson took over at quarterback. The rookie out of Clemson either passed or rushed for five touchdowns in Houston’s 57-14 rout of Tennessee. But All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt has cautioned his Texans’ teammates not to get carried away over the win last week.

Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith is playing superb under center. Smith knows how tough it can be playing on the road and knows limiting turnovers is the key to his team’s success. He leads the NFL in passer rating at 124 and completion percentage at 76%.

Watson passed for 283 yards and four TDs last week while rushing for another. DeAndre Hopkins with 31 receptions is Watson’s favorite target, but Will Fuller another wide receiver caught two touchdowns passes last week against the Titans.

Kansas City’s Hunt can become just the second rookie in NFL history with 100 yards from scrimmage or more in each of his first five NFL games.

Houston’s Watson is the only rookie quarterback in NFL history to throw seven or more touchdowns passes and rush for two more in his first four games of his rookie season.

Houston beat Kansas City last season 19-12, but Kansas City had won three straight against Houston prior to that loss.

Kansas City is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 games on the road.

Houston is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games after a win straight up.

With this free pick, we like Houston to win.

Redskins vs Chiefs Free Pick

Redskings defense must shut Kareem Hunt downWeek 4 of the NFL regular season concludes with Monday Night Football when the Washington Redskins visit the Kansas City Chiefs in an inter-conference showdown. The current line on top sportsbooks has Kansas City favored by 7 points with the over/under point total on 49.5.

Entering this game, Washington on the season is 2-1 straight up and against the spread. On the road, the Redskins are 1-0 SU and ATS. Kansas City on the season is 3-0 SU and ATS. At home, the Chiefs are 1-0 SU and ATS.

This is the second straight game the Redskins will play an AFC West team in primetime, after beating the Oakland Raiders last week on Sunday Night Football 27-10 limiting star quarterback Derek Carr and his Raiders’ teammates to just 128 yards of total offense.

The Redskins defense held the Raiders to just 32 yards on the ground and did not allow Oakland to convert on third down as the Raiders were 0-for-11. However, on Monday the Redskins defense must try to stop rookie sensation Kareem Hunt.

Hunt took over at the start of the season for Spencer Ware who was injured and leads the NFL in rushing yards with 401.

Last week Hunt rushed for 172 yards against the Chargers in the Chiefs 24-10 victory. He is just the first rookie in 36 seasons to score six touchdowns in the first three games of his career.

The Chiefs offense leads the league with an average of 162 yards per game on the ground, while its total offense is No. 3 averaging 397.2 yards per game.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins passed for 365 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Raiders last week. Cousins could have two important offensive skills players back from injury this week. Tight end Jordan Reed and tailback Rob Kelley are likely to return after missing last week’s game.

If the Chiefs have shown a weakness this season it is against the run. The Kansas City defense is No. 19 against the run allowing 111.8 yards per game and No. 21 in yards allowed per rush at 4.3.

Chiefs’ linebacker Justin Houston is No. 3 in the AFC with four quarterback sacks.

Washington is 10-2 ATS in its last 12 games on the road.

Kansas City is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games played.

With this free pick, we like Washington to cover.

Chiefs vs Patriots Free Pick

The NFL kicks off the 2017 regular season on Thursday Night Football when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the New England Patriots. The current line on top sportsbooks has New England favored by 8 points with the over/under point total on 48.

New England finished last season 14-2 and went on to win Super Bowl LI, while Kansas City was 12-4 and won the AFC West. The last time the two teams played head to head was during the playoffs in January 2016 with New England coming out on top 27-20.

Both teams will be missing key offensive weapons opening the season. New England lost wide receiver Julian Edelman, who caught 96 passes last season, with an ACL tear. Kansas City lost its top running back Spencer Ware with a knee injury. Both players will miss the entire season.

Kansas City traded up in the draft to take Patrick Mahones their future quarterback. This preseason he played well, but veteran Alex Smith will start under center for the Chiefs.

Filling in for Ware at running back will likely be Charcandrick West. There is also rookie Kareem Hunt and free agent signing C.J. Spiller, who will see time in the backfield.

Smith is coming off a season where he threw for 3,500 yards, 15 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Tight end Travis Kelce with 85 receptions was his favorite target.

Defensively, Kansas City must replace the departed Donatri Poe a nose tackle. They did not fare well against the run last season.

New England traded in the offseason for Brandin Cooks a talented wide receiver and his presence will make the loss of Edelman slightly easier to handle. Cooks has more than 2,300 yards receiving over the last two seasons and 17 touchdowns receptions during that same period.

Tom Brady the veteran and future Hall of Famer returns for another season at 39. Last season he threw for 28 touchdowns with only 2 interceptions. Rob Gronkowski is once again healthy and will be one of Brady’s favorite targets at tight end.

Defensively, New England was strong last season finishing No. 6 overall allowing only 326 yards per game. The Pats defense against the run was No. 3 overall at 88.5 yards per game allowed.

New England is favored to win Super Bowl LII opening the season.

Kansas City is 6-0 against the spread in its last 6 games on the road.

New England is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games played on fieldturf.

With this free pick, we like New England to cover.

Kansas City Chiefs 2017 Outlook

The defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs fired their general manager this summer despite reaching the postseason in three of the four years John Dorsey was the GM.

The Chiefs did confirm their confidence in head coach Andy Reid by giving him a contract extension in June.

The Chiefs draft picks this year may need some time to show any dividends. The team traded next year’s first round draft pick so they could move up to draft Patrick Mahomes the strong arm quarterback from Texas Tech. For many, Mahomes was the most physically gifted quarterback in the draft.

He will sit behind veteran starter Alex Smith, which will give him time to learn and adjust to the NFL intricacies and work on his mechanics. › Continue reading

Steelers vs Chiefs Free Pick

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs concludes Sunday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Kansas City Chiefs. The current line on top sportsbooks has Pittsburgh favored by 1.5 points with the over/under point total on 44.5.

During the season, Pittsburgh on the road is 5-3 straight up and against the spread. At home, Kansas City this season is 6-2 SU and 3-5 ATS. In their past 10 games played, the Steelers are 8-2 SU and 6-3-1 ATS, while the Chiefs are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS.

Pittsburgh showed the NFL how strong its offense is with a rout of Miami in the wildcard round last weekend. However, the Steelers best performance on offense all season was its 29-point rout in Week 4 of Kansas City.

Kansas City will be looking to exact revenge in the Sunday night game that was pushed back from its original 1:00 pm start to 8:20 pm due to the possibility of freezing rain.   › Continue reading

Chiefs vs Chargers Free Pick

Another AFC West matchup has playoff implications in Week 17 when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the San Diego Chargers on New Year’s Day. The current line on top sportsbooks has Kansas City favored by 4.5 points with the over/under point total on 44.5.

Entering this game, Kansas City has an overall record this season of 11-4 straight up and 8-7 against the spread. On the road, the Chiefs are 5-2 SU and ATS. San Diego on the season has an overall record of 5-10 SU and 7-8 ATS. At home, the Chargers are 3-4 SU and ATS.

Kansas City needs to win for the sixth straight time over San Diego to keep its hopes alive of winning the AFC West and a bye in the first round of the postseason. The Chiefs need to win and have Oakland lose to win the AFC West and move from the No. 5 seed in the AFC to No. 2.

Last week, Kansas City routed Denver 33-10. On the other hand, San Diego will help archrival Oakland if they can beat the Chiefs on Sunday. The Chargers have nothing more to play for than another divisional win and pride.  › Continue reading

Following a loss last week against New England, Denver needs to win its final two games to have any hope of defending its Super Bowl title. Kansas City lost last week as well falling at the hands of Tennessee 19-17 on a field goal as time ran out.

Denver opened the season with four straight wins but has lost 6 of its past 10 and is 1-3 since having a 7-3 record. Denver has a slight chance to reach the playoffs by winning just one game and could actually miss the postseason even by winning its final two.   › Continue reading
