Best bet for NFL Week 15
The Kansas City Chiefs head to Los Angeles to face the chargers. This divisional rivalry could even be the match of the week for Thursday night football.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Los Angeles Chargers
NFL Betting Odds: Chiefs $1.57 (-3.0) / Chargers $2.40 (+3.0)
After a slow start to the year the Chiefs are airborne. Mahomes looks back to his MVP best and teams are struggling to contain his passing once more.
A major factor of this is due to him once again relighting his connection with star wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
The Chargers defence is weak particularly around the safety area with a few rookies rotating those positions at the current time.
Look for Mahomes to try exploit this. If this means the defence stays deep, look for the run game of Kansas City to go big as well.
The Chargers on the other hand are a hot and cold team. Their offense is electric led by Justin Herbert however their defence is allowing way too many points at the moment.
If they are to have a chance this Thursday night they need to contain Mahomes like they did earlier in the season when they got a shock upset victory.

Free NFL Expert Pick: Chiefs -3 @ 1.94
I can not put my faith in the chargers as much as I would like to.
Their defence just has way too many holes to cover and I expect the lethal KC offence to take advantage of this.
Look for the Chiefs to springboard off this game into playoff talks.
