Kansas City Chiefs must win if they hope to secure the AFC West title and a first week bye. Can the Chargers put a damper on those hopes? Find out in this mini-NFL betting preview.

Kansas City Chiefs vs San Diego Chargers

Point Spread Value

The Chiefs improve to 11-4-0 SU and 8-5-1 ATS on the season with a huge 33-10 win over the defending Super Bowl Champions at Arrowhead in week 16. The AFC West title is still up for grabs and a win over the Chargers might just do the trick. In any event, they must win out. Earlier this season, the pair collided in a right cracker and the Chiefs managed to come from behind to win. With the Chargers having no incentive to win, the Chiefs really should come through on the NFL odds.

The Survivor

The Chiefs must win if they hope to clinch the AFC West and a first-round bye. The Chargers have lost four in a row and look there for the taking. Also adding incentive is the recent injury to Derek Carr that only improves Kanas City's chances to bid for the divisional title.

Game Total

The Chiefs are coming off a statement win over the Denver Broncos in week 16, a 33-10 win that produced some of the best offensive play from Alex Smith and Company in a long time. The Chargers offense behind Philip Rivers is renowned and can light up on any given Sunday. If this clash lives up to it's billing it should be a right cracker.

Free NFL Pick: Over 44.5 (-110)
