The Las Vegas Raiders are currently 2-2 after a 2-0 start, and are looking to get a huge bounce back win against one of the best teams in the league in the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have looked unstoppable so far, becoming the first team in NFL history to start 4-0 in four consecutive seasons. Can the Raiders make this a contest or will the Chiefs roll?

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The under is 4-0 in the Raiders past four games when coming in as the road underdog and 5-0 in their last five road games. To make the under even more enticing, it is also 6-1 in their last seven games overall. However, they are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall and only 7-15-1 ATS in their past 23 road games. Las Vegas is also 0-4 ATS in their last four matchups in Kansas City.

Meanwhile, the under is 6-1 in their past seven games against divisional opponents and 4-1 in their last five games in Week 5. Kansas City has been 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight games when coming in as the favorite in the matchup and 9-1-1 in their last 11 games overall. The home team has been 6-1 ATS in these teams last seven matchups against each other as well.

Las Vegas Raiders

Even though the Raiders weren’t able to win their Week 4 matchup against the Buffalo Bills, they showed heart and toughness and stayed close throughout the game. Quarterback Derek Carr played fairly well, as he threw for 311 yards and two touchdowns without an interception but had a very costly fumble. If the Raiders want to bounce back and beat this talented Chiefs team, they will need to dominate with ball control, which includes limiting turnovers. They had two fumbles in their last game, and it has seemingly been an issue all season long, as they fumbled three times in their Week 3 matchup against the New England Patriots. The Raiders defense won’t be able to stop Patrick Mahomes and company, but the last thing they want to do is give them short fields and optimal situations.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have picked up impressive wins in each of the last two weeks, topping the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. Beating the Pats was a bit easier than expected since there was no Cam Newton and the Patriots had to fly on gameday. Even so, the Chiefs were tested and they did enough.

While the Chiefs last two opponents offered a lot of resistance, the Raiders probably won’t. Las Vegas looks eerily similar to last year’s version, which started well but then hit a wall. This team is limited by their passing game and Carr, and they probably won’t be able to keep up. The Raiders will try to run the ball, move the chains and keep possession of the football but they weren’t able to do that last year. This year’s team isn’t any better. The Raiders defense is giving up 30.0 points per game. The Chiefs shouldn’t really sweat too hard to get to that number.
