Beware the wounded heavyweights. 

The 1-1 Kansas City Chiefs are out to respond to a gut-wrenching 36-35 defeat to the Ravens in Week 2 – Patrick Mahomes’ maiden September loss. The QB gun threw for 343 yard, 3 TDs and an INT in the loss.

LA Chargers edged Washington 20-16 in Week 1 but fell 20-17 to the Cowboys last week. A slew of penalties – including two that negated touchdowns – brought the Chargers undone. Though he finished with just one touchdown pass and two interceptions, young QB Justin Herbert again showed his mouth-watering potential.

The Chiefs have won 12 of their last 14 against the Chargers. After jagging an early-season 23-20 overtime win in Los Angeles, the Chiefs rested Mahomes against the Chargers in their last regular-season fixture in Kansas City and went down 38-21.

Verdict

A boilover win may be a bridge too far for the Chargers, but there’s some value in backing the $3.10 underdogs to keep it close.

Best Bet: Chargers +8.5/-56.5 Line/Total Double @188 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
