Raiders vs. Chiefs odds: Kansas City slight favorites over Oakland

The Kansas City Chiefs are just one-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders, as the two teams clash in battle of struggling offenses on Sunday.


The Kansas City Chiefs (1-5) take on the Oakland Raiders (2-4) in a game that is expected to be extremely close on Sunday, with the Chiefs expected to be favorites by just one point.

The Chiefs, coming off a bye week, have lost three straight games with the offense producing just 16 points total in losses to the Baltimore Ravens and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coach Romeo Crennel announced that Brady Quinn would be the starting quarterback for the Chiefs moving forward in an attempt to create a different dynamic on the team, although Quinn struggled in his first start in three years against Tampa Bay.

Oakland, meanwhile, won just their second game of the season on Sunday, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars in overtime, 26-23. It was just the second game this season in which the Raiders have produced more than 21 points in a game, with both instances resulting in wins. The Raiders, six-point favorites in the game, failed to cover.

According to, expect the Chiefs to go after the Raiders defense on the ground as Oakland has struggled this season against the run on the road while Kansas City has the No. 4 rushing offense when at home.

Considering the offensive state of both teams, the line for the game is unsurprisingly low at 41 1/2.

The Chiefs take on the Raiders on Sunday at 3:05 p.m. CT, with coverage on CBS.
