Why bet on Las Vegas versus Kansas City?
Las Vegas went through more changes than most teams this offseason. Not only did the Raiders hire a new head coach in Josh McDaniels, but Las Vegas also traded for one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, Davante Adams. When a pro team goes through as many changes as Vegas did, it takes time for all of the new pieces to gel. Versus rival Denver in their last, Vegas finally put it all together. There’s no reason to believe they won’t keep it going on Monday night.

Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs Final Betting Prediction
The line undervalues the Kansas City Chiefs by at least 3 points. KC dominates at home, the Chiefs destroy opponents on Monday night, and the Raiders are terrible not only on the road, but also versus KC at Arrowhead.
The Raiders aren’t just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. They’re also 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 versus the Chiefs in Kansas City.
But the trends aren’t the only reason to believe Kansas City wins this by 14 or more points. The Chiefs rank first against the rush and second in points scored per game. Kansas City is excellent at forcing teams to throw the football.
Las Vegas’ offensive line is a mess. Carr has suffered 9 sacks in 4 games. He’s on pace for 36 sacks this season. That’s not as bad the 40 he suffered last season, but it’s not good, either.
There’s nothing that happened over the weekend to make us go Vegas’ way. Kansas City should put another beating onto the rival Raiders. Expect at least a 10-point victory and don’t be surprised if KC wins this by 14 or more.
