Raiders vs. Chiefs: Spread Info, Line and Predictions

Though the stakes aren't as high as either team would like, the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs will rekindle their storied rivalry at Arrowhead on Sunday.

Oakland comes into the contest fresh off a 26-23 overtime victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and still has slim postseason hopes at 2-4.

We'll get to my final score prediction later. 


Over/Under: 42 (Bovada)

I'm not exactly sure how low the line would have to go for me to take the over, but 42 certainly isn't that figure.

Both Oakland and Kansas ...
