The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a bye week. Their last outing was an embarrassing 43-14 loss at the hands of the Steelers. They are 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS this season. The Chiefs average 20.8 points per game (20th) and allow 23.0 points each week (17th).
QB Alex Smith (1073 yards, 5 TD s& 2 INTs) has been his impressive self this season which is what Andy Reid loves in his starting QB. Kansas City averages 248.3 passing yards per game (15th).
WR Jeremy Maclin (20 rec, 244 yards, 1 TD) has three straight games without a touchdown catch. TE Travis Kelce (22 rec, 220 yards, 2 TDs), on the contrary, has found the end zone in the las two games.
The Chiefs average 90.3 rushing yards per game (21st). RB Spencer Ware (54 car, 284 yards, 1 TD) averages 5.3 yards per carry. RB Jamaal Charles (2 car, 7 yards, 0 TDs) played his first game of the season after almost a year on the sideline. His play count was managed two weeks ago. I expect Ried to let Charles loose this week
Kansas City has the 7th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 241.0 passing yards per game (13th) and 129.5 rushing yards per game (29th).

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Raiders are playing fundamental football and are winning. At this pace a playoff run is in the cards.Kansas City on the other hand just took a beating at the hands of the Steelers and even though they’ve had a week to rest up, traveling to Oakland with how the Raiders have been playing as of late is not a spot you want to be in.
My final score prediction is Kansas City 27, Oakland 30.
