The chargers are looking to win the AFC West title while the Chiefs would love to finish the season .500. The Chargers are coming off two tough losses at the hands of the Steelers and Denver. Their defense has struggled hard and look to avoid a new low by losing to the Chiefs who are coming off their first victory of the season. The Chargers will need to find answers fast as Denver is 6-0. The chargers beat the Chiefs twice last year by one point which is not impressive considering the Chiefs went 2-14 last seasons. This could be a dangerous game for the Chargers as Matt Cassel is playing well and coach Haley trying to instill confidence in his team. To make matters worse, the Chargers defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to compete 74.6 percent of their passes for 568 yards and five touchdowns with one intercept in the last two games. Cassel is on a bit of a roll and hasn’t been picked off in his last four games while throwing for six touchdowns. Something can be said for the weak play in the Chargers o-line which has allowed 15 sacks this season, including a career high five against the Broncos. The Chiefs’ will look to avoiding a third consecutive home loss to the Chargers. Below are your betting lines, trends and predictions for this Chargers vs Chiefs match up.

Chargers vs Chiefs Predictions:
Spread – This is my upset pick of the week. Arrowhead stadium and the sea of Read is one of the hardest places to play in the NFL. Matt Cassel has finally been healthy for an extended period of time this year and he has shown why the Chiefs have designated him the franchise quarterback. The Chargers defense is too suspect and I think that the Chiefs offense will abuse them this weekend. With the monkey off his back, Coach Todd Haley will finally coach with less weight on his shoulders and lead the Chiefs to victory at home. Chiefs beat the spread and take this one 28-24. Throw down on the CHIEFS to beat the spread at -110 or even on the money line at +200 at Bodog.com.
Over/Under – Take the over in this one. Both teams are offense based teams with two arguable probowl quarterbacks and two pro bowl running backs. Helping the cause to take the over is the fact that both team’s defense have struggled and are among the worst in the NFL. Lay it down on the OVER 44 total points at Bodog.com.
