NFL Betting Preview: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Las Vegas Raiders – Sunday, Dec. 12, 2021

by Spooky Express | December 7, 2021 |

Another week of the NFL regular season closes its doors, paving the way for us to check out and look forward to Week 14. A divisional matchup in the AFC West will be in the early Sunday slate of games when the Las Vegas Raiders go on the road to take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

This game is huge for both of these teams, as the Chiefs are looking to continue their winning streak to move up in the AFC standings after a slow start to the year. Las Vegas needs to win a game to survive to give themselves any kind of chance as we head into the final couple weeks of the season.

For the history of this matchup, the Chiefs have owned the Raiders since Andy Reid has been the head coach and Patrick Mahomes has only lost once in his career. We have all of your coverage here to break down this matchup and help you determine your best bets.

Las Vegas Raiders Betting Preview: No more pieces left to pick up

After their most recent loss to the Washington Football Team, the Raiders have now dropped four of their last five games. Granted, as far as off-the-field issues go, their team has certainly experienced the most difficulties throughout this season.

How that will reflect in this divisional matchup remains to be seen, and Derek Carr has seen his fair share of struggles against the Chiefs in his career. This could be the game for him to get the monkey off his back, but he is going to have to find a way to put some consistent offense up with his team.

Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview: A dwindling offense in 2021

After Mahomes first couple of seasons at the helm of the Chiefs, the team’s offense has slowly regressed and they have found themselves struggling to put up points. Miraculously, their defense has found its footing and is coming off another impressive performance against Denver where they held them to just nine points.

A 70+ yard pick-six also helped propel them to victory on Sunday Night Football, but the Chiefs will have to do better than that the rest of the way to have a chance.

A win here could move them into a strong position for the postseason, but we will see what Mahomes has up his sleeves.
