On Christmas Day, the (9-5) Kansas City Chiefs will play the (6-8) Las Vegas Raiders on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. This Week 16 matchup opens the NFL’s holiday tripleheader. Kickoff is scheduled for Noon Arrowhead Time on CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

In Week 14, the Chiefs opened as 2.5-point home favorites against the Buffalo Bills. By kickoff, the spread had narrowed to 1.5 points before Buffalo defeated Kansas City 20-17. A week later, the Chiefs opened as 10-point road favorites over the New England Patriots. The spread narrowed to eight points before the game began — and Kansas City won 27-17.

The Raiders went into their Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings as 2.5-point home underdogs. The spread opened to three points before kickoff — and Minnesota actually won 3-0. For the following week’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Raiders were listed as three-point home underdogs. The spread held through kickoff — and the Raiders went on a rampage, defeating the Chargers 63-21.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Kansas City has opened as a 10-point favorite in the game.
