The Kansas City Chiefs gained an unexpected bonus this past week. Can they finish off the San Diego Chargers in the AFC West race? We’ll find the answer on Sunday.

Why To Bet On The Chiefs

The Chiefs have to be full of confidence and optimism as they head into San Diego. For one thing, they’ve won their last three games and have abruptly changed the trajectory of their season. Coach Todd Haley is doing a marvelous job in his second season with the franchise. A renewed commitment to running the ball has enabled Kansas City to lead the league in rushing with a whopping 175 yards per game. Running back Jamaal Charles has been sensational this season, and the effective running game – combined with a breakthrough year for previously inconsistent receiver Dwayne Bowe – has made life very manageable for quarterback Matt Cassel. All the pieces of the puzzle have come together for the Chiefs, who have found different ways to win. On Nov. 28, they crushed Seattle by a 42-24 score. This past Sunday, they edged Denver in a 10-6 defensive battle. Teams that can win in all kinds of situations are the teams that win divisions and go to the playoffs.

Speaking of that, the AFC West hopes for the Chiefs received a boost when San Diego lost to Oakland last week, the first December loss for the Chargers since the 2006 season. Kansas City now has a two-game lead over San Diego, which means that the Chargers can’t even tie the Chiefs in the standings with this win. Kansas City is playing with house money, and that should reduce the amount of pressure the Chiefs might feel.

Why To Bet On The Chargers

The Chargers have obviously not inspired much of any confidence this year, but after crushing Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts on the road, San Diego stood at 6-5 and was the owner of a four-game winning streak. Moreover, the Chargers – as mentioned above – had not lost a December game in four years. People were not expecting last week’s face-plant against the Oakland Raiders, so you might wonder why San Diego should be favored by a touchdown in this game.

Well, the reasoning is rather simple. San Diego must win this game. There’s no debate or discussion. The Chargers’ season will be over if they lose to Kansas City. Therefore, oddsmakers are thinking that San Diego will play with great desperation, focus and passion in a do-or-die duel. This team has too much talent to not at least push the AFC West race to its final stage. Kansas City is now the definite favorite to win the division, but the Chargers have a very good chance of winning this game against the spread.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Chargers will indeed play with desperation and vigor, and that’s precisely what’s going to carry them past the Chiefs by roughly two touchdowns. Kansas City will be relaxed entering this game because of its unexpected two-game lead in the standings. That will actually hurt the Chiefs against the angry and wounded Chargers.
