NFL picks, Week 15: Chiefs over Raiders? Probably not

The KC Chiefs are an underdog for a reason.

Peter Aiken

The Kansas City Chiefs are 3-point underdogs against the Oakland Raiders which makes it little surprise that most people are picking the bad guys to win this game. Among those picking Oakland to win is yours truly.

I won't ever actively root against the Chiefs but in a situation like this, with draft pick position on the line, I certainly wouldn't be as upset if the Chiefs lost.

More: Odds for all games

I have the Raiders beating the Chiefs, 16-3. Here's what I wrote in my blurb for

A meaningless game as far as the playoff picture is concerned. A very meaningful game as far as the No. 1 pick is concerned. The Chiefs are leading the way right now, tied with the Jaguars. But the Raiders are just a game behind. Oakland has lost six in a row and its last win came against ... Kansas City. Oakland will win the game but lose a valuable spot in the draft order.

All my picks can be seen here. Who doesn't want to take advice from someone who gets less than 50 percent of his picks right?!?

Other picks...

ESPN: Of the picks that are in right now, just one -- Seth Wickersham -- is picking the Chiefs to win. The rest are rolling on the dark side.

CBS Sports: Jason La Canfora and Pete Prisco are the only two taking the Chiefs.

Yahoo! Sports: Ouch. No one is picking the Chiefs from this group.
