NFL Odds at BetAnySports -- Chargers Laying a Field Goal to Chiefs

The San Diego Chargers have once again been enjoying a banner season from their quarterback. But they are used to getting a hard time from the Kansas City Chiefs, who may have three defeats on their record (compared to none at this point last season) but still have that substantial running game. These clubs will get together in their attempt to beat the NFL odds, beginning at 4:05 PM ET at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

The last time these teams met, there were rather strange circumstances. It was the 2013 season finale, and San Diego needed to win in order to sneak into the last playoff spot. But Kansas City had already clinched its spot in the post-season. So the Chiefs felt compelled to rest a load of players, including starting quarterback Alex Smith. Even then, San Diego had a hell of a time sealing the game away, forced to go into overtime for a 27-24 win. Of course, they went from there to win a road playoff game at Cincinnati,

In the NFL odds that have been posted at BetAnySports, the Chargers are favored by a field goal:

San Diego Chargers -3
Kansas City Chiefs +3

Over 45.5 Points -110
Under 45.5 Points -110

What is interesting when you take a look at this game is that the Chargers have really been an efficient ballclub, if you like to follow what are known as “drive stats.” They lead the league in points per drive, least turnovers per drive and time of possession per drive on offense, and at the same time they are also second in the league in points allowed per game on defense, not to mention third in the average starting point for the opponent on change of possession.

The Chiefs were very good in terms of taking care of the ball last season, ranking second in the NFL, but this year they are in the middle of the pack. BetAnySports customers know that Alex Smith hasn’t been sensational, given the current standards in the NFL, but he has been efficient enough to complete 63.5% of his passes. And there are now a couple of guys who can run the ball for the Chiefs, as Knile Davis was given some added responsibility with Jamaal Charles’ injuries this year, and he has responded with 4.5 yards per carry.

Let’s talk about some technical trends for a moment, because people interested in the NFL football betting odds may want to examine these. San Diego has not only won nine of its last ten regular season games, but they have also covered every game but last week’s straight-up win against Oakland. Kansas City has covered ten of its eleven regular season road games since Andy Reid was named head coach. Reid has also been known as a coach who knows how to take a team out of a bye week, as he has had a 13-2 straight-up record in that situation.
