Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders:
Line: Chiefs by 8.0
Analysis: Division match-ups are the standard Thursday night fare for the NFL. Division opponents are easier to prepare for as the teams are familiar with each other due to their home and home annual meetings. In the case of the 0-10 Raiders, a their divisional opponents all have winning records and are in playoff contention while Oakland is a a virtual lock for the first overall pick in the April 2015 draft. The Raiders remain competitive, and could keep this one close, but Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis will pound them into submission and break off a late touchdown to make the spread. In a three game run against teams with struggling offenses, the Rams, Jets, and Bills, Kansas City gave up 7, 10, and 13 points, respectively. The Raiders won’t score more than 14. Take the under.
Straight pick: Chiefs
Spread Pick: Chiefs – 8.0
OU Pick: Under 42.5
Pick Confidence: High on all three picks.
