Betting Preview for the Kansas City Chiefs vs Las Vegas Raiders Regular Season Week 10 Game on November 14, 2021
Where: Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas
When: Sunday, November 14, 2021, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-4
The Chiefs are back to over .500 again after back-to-back wins over the New York Giants (20-17) in Week 8 and against the Green Bay Packers in Week 9 (13-7) both at home. Patrick Mahomes passed for just 166 yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions on 20/37 completions against the Packers, while the backfield garnered 77 rushing yards on 25 carries. Kansas City can do better on offense, and there’s an opportunity for them to accomplish that, at least on the ground, against the Raiders’ stop unit that had just allowed 149 rushing yards to the Giants in Week 9. On the season, the Raiders are just 28th in the NFL with 4.6 rushing yards allowed per carry. Although the Chiefs faced an Aaron Rodgers-less Packers team in Week 9. they still should have gotten momentum from it defensively heading into the Raiders game on the road.
The Chiefs are 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games against the Raiders, dating back to 2016.
Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders (+2.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-3
The Raiders are coming off a 23-16 road loss to the Giants in Week 9, but they could be given a pass, considering all the off-the-field issues that have engulfed the team of late. Nevertheless, the loss to the Giants could be another galvanizing point for Las Vegas, which is still a potent team, offensively. The Raiders are sixth in the NFL with 394.5 total yards per game and 16th with 24.5 points per contest. Derek Carr has been a decent quarterback for the Raiders, with the former Fresno State Bulldogs star ranking third overall in the NFL with 2,565 passing yards this season. Kansas City’s porous defense will be a great backdrop for the Raiders’ passing attack, second in the league with 305.1 passing yards per game. The Chiefs are also one of the worst in the NFL in sack rate, and that’s music to the ears of Carr, who only got sacked once in the loss to the Giants.
The Raiders are 5-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog.
The Raiders win, 30-27.
