TNF Free Pick | Chargers at Chiefs

When: 8:20PM ET, Thursday, December 13th, 2018
Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
TV Coverage: FOX, NFL Network
Current Line: KC -3.5 Total: 53
Two divisional rivals that are on their way to the playoffs kickoff Week 15 in the NFL when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead.
The Chiefs clinched a playoff spot after their come-from-behind win over the Ravens, but can secure both the AFC West title and home field advantage in the AFC with a win over the Chargers on Thursday Night.
A win for the Chargers tonight will clinch them at least the 5th seed in the AFC, guaranteeing them at least one playoff game. Even still, the Chargers have a 3-game lead in the Wild Card race after their win over the Bengals last week.
These two played Week 1 in LA, with the Chiefs coming out on top 38-28, aided by Patrick Mahomes’ 4 passing TDs and 256 passing yards. Philip Rivers threw for a whopping 424 yards, 3 TDs and an INT.
Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill had a large day in this one, catching 7 receptions for 169 yards and 2 touchdowns, adding another TD on a 91-yard punt return. Hill was a non-participant in practice early in the week due to a foot injury he suffered last week. Watch the news report on Hill leading up to game time, as he is a huge piece of the Chiefs offense.
KC has owned the Chargers of late, going 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 games between the two. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of those 10. The Chiefs are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing the Chargers, however, the Chargers are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games at Arrowhead.
One thing these two teams don’t have trouble doing is scoring points. If Hill plays, I am very confident this one will go OVER, however, if he is not, there is still a good chance of the OVER paying off.
