BEST BET KANSAS CITY over LA Charg­ers by 11

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Not only are the ‘crazy lit­tle women’ meet­ing in Kansas City on Satur­day night but so are the AFC West lead­ers. And with the divi­sion ti­tle likely on the line as both the Chiefs and Charg­ers fin­ish with fa­vor­able sched­ules: KC at home ver­sus Mi­ami and at Den­ver; Los Angeles at the Jets and home against Oak­land. The visi­tors have our ma­chine in a bit of a tizzy as the Charg­ers are 6-1-1 ATS away in this se­ries when en­ter­ing with a win per­cent­age of less than .600 and the Chiefs ar­riv­ing off a SU win, but only 1-8 ATS as road fa­vorites off a win of more than 10 points. In ad­di­tion, our NFL Quar­ter­back Club re­minds us that Charg­ers QB Philip Rivers is a mon­ey­mak­ing 13-3-2 ATS as a divi­sion road dog, but a pedes­trian 10-8 ATS as a divi­sion road fa­vorite. Lucky for us the Chiefs are 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS in this se­ries (dogs only once) since 2014 and that HC Andy Reid is the an­swer to this week’s TRIVIA TEASER on page 2. Yes, th­ese two were headed in op­po­site di­rec­tions be­fore KC’s win against Oak­land on Sun­day but the bot­tom line is the price is right. And if our ‘Reid’ is cor­rect, we don’t even need THE CLINCHER: Kansas City is 18-5 ATS as a home dog fol­low­ing a win, in­clud­ing 13-2 SUATS from Game 6 out and 9-0 ATS against foes com­ing off a win.
