The Kansas City Chiefs are a single point favorite over the Oakland Raiders.
The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Oakland Raiders and are in need of a win to inch closer to the top of the AFC West and to possibly earn a playoff spot. The oddsmakers think the Chiefs will win as Odds Shark have the Chiefs listed as a one-point favorite over the Raiders.
The Raiders come into this game limping on a three-game losing streak and are in danger of not making the playoffs if they keep losing. As for the Chiefs, they have won two of their last three which include an upset last week over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers.
The Raiders are going to have a tough time running the ball against the Chiefs as starting running back Darren McFadden has not played since Oct. 23 with a foot injury and will not suit up against the Chiefs. Also, the Raiders could be without backup running back Michael Bush who is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.
Those injuries to the Raiders are one reason why the Chiefs are a slight favorite to win this game another is that quarterback Kyle Orton is getting used to the playbook and is now playing well for the Chiefs.
