In Week 14, the Kansas City Chiefs will play an AFC West division rival for the second week in a row — as the Las Vegas Raiders are scheduled to visit Arrowhead Stadium. Also for the second week in a row, the Chiefs have opened as 9.5-point favorites for the game, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Chiefs were favored against the Denver Broncos by the same margin on Sunday night, and they covered the spread by winning 22-9. The Raiders are coming off a tough 17-15 loss to the Washington Football Team, in which WFT kicker Brian Johnson nailed a 48-yarder to seal the game in the final minute.

The Chiefs had their best offensive game of the season against the Raiders in Week 10, as Kansas City’s offense scored five touchdowns en route to a 41-14 victory. The Raiders have gone 1-2 in the three games since, losing to Washington and the Cincinnati Bengals while managing a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
