The Chiefs are 6-5 & winning 5 in a row, while Raiders are 5-6 & winning just once in their last four. This could be a de factor eliminator in the playoff race as AFC West rivals clash in Cali.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -3 -105 at Pinnacle
The Chiefs opened up favored by a field goal on the road and while the NFL odds  went to -3.5 briefly, they went back to -3. Kansas City is rolling as they beat Buffalo 30-22, their fourth game in a row scoring 29 points or more. Alex Smith has now gone 283 pass attempts without a pick, and Spencer Ware continues to impress as the Chiefs churn out running backs. The Raiders stopped their losing skid at three games with a 24-21 win at Tennessee and that loss would have ended a season that started so promisingly. These two are bitter rivals to begin with, but this is the first of two meetings between now and the end of the season. The Raiders go to Kansas City in Week 17, so both the Chiefs and the Raiders want to set the tone starting with this week.

Injuries
For the Chiefs, LB Justin Houston has a knee sprain and didn't practice on Wednesday. The Chiefs hope he can play on Sunday, but it doesn't look good for one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. G Ben Grubbs is out for the season with a neck injury, while T Eric Fisher left the Buffalo game with a neck injury as well. Kansas City is looking a little beat up as they look to continue their run.

The Raiders don't have any new injuries to report as of Wednesday, but they're hoping C Rodney Hudson can come back from an ankle injury. But the Raiders look healthy coming down the stretch.

 

Trends
The Chiefs are 6-5 ATS this season, going 3-3 ATS on the road, while the Raiders are also 6-5 ATS, but 2-3 ATS at home. The total is set for 44, and both teams have gone over six times this season. However, the Raiders have two pushes to one for the Chiefs.

Kansas City is 4-6 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Raiders, who are 3-7 SU and ATS in their last 10 home games against the Chiefs.
