Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas Chiefs picks, predictions, and player prop bets for this NFL Week 2 Thursday Night Football game.
Charges vs Chiefs Odds
This Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs NFL Week 2 Thursday Night Football game is set to kickoff on September 15, 2022 at 8:15 PM ET at Arrowhead Stadium.
The latest NFL odds have the Chiefs as a -4 point favorite against the spread with the over/under at 54 total points.
The NFL betting public is loving Kansas City in this game and they currently have 67% of their money behind them as the home favorite. These two teams faced each other last season in a very entertaining matchup, where the Chiefs ended up with the 34-28 overtime win.
In that matchup, Kansas City’s Tight End Travis Kelce had 10 receptions for 191 total yards, which included a game tying touchdown which was then followed up with a winning overtime touchdown.
My 1-Unit player prop bet is actually on Travis Kelce. I’m taking Kelce to go over the 6.5 total receptions at the -115 price.
Then my second player prop bet in this matchup is going on Patrick Mahomes. This is the prop bet that I personally tripled down on and I’m giving you free access to it. All you have to do is text the letters “KC” to 702-234-0597.
Chargers vs Chiefs Betting Preview
The Chargers come into this Week 2 after getting the 24-19 week 1 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders. Quarterback Justin Herbert completed 26 of 34 passes for 279 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The star in that matchup was actually on defense with Khalil Mack. Mack produced 6 total tackles including three sacks against the Raiders. Kansas City didn’t do a great job last week protecting Mahomes, so all eyes will be on Mack to see if he’s able to duplicate that great performance.
LA will be without their starting wideout Keenan Allen. He was ruled out due to his hamstring injury. In Allen’s 13 career games against the Chiefs, he’s had 82 catches for 934 yards and has scored 5 touchdowns, so it’s a significant blow to the office without his presence on the field.
Last season when playing on the road, the Chargers scored an average of 24.8 points per game, but had the sixth worst defense in the league that gave up an average of 28 points per game.
Los Angeles is 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Kansas City. The total has gone over in 5 of the Chargers’ last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC.
The Kansas City Chiefs come into this Week 2 game after their blowout week one road win 44-21 against the Arizona Cardinals. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes had a monster game, throwing for 360 yards and five touchdowns.
Kansas City’s kicker Harrison Butker and offensive guard Trey Smith will miss this matchup. Last season when playing at home,
Kansas City had the fifth best offense in the league that put up an average of 28.6 points per game while giving up an average of 20.2 points per game on defense. The Chiefs are 8-1 straight up in their last 9 games at home.
The total has gone over in 4 of Kansas City’s last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC.
