NFL Best Bets & Odds: Week 15 Thursday Night Football

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Date: Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021
Time: 8:20 p.m. EST
Venue: SoFi Stadium — Inglewood, Calif.
Coverage: FOX/NFL Network

The Chiefs are firing on all cylinders, and they are coming off a statement win against the Raiders last week. While the offense still has a couple of moments where they look a little shaky, the defense has come to play. Kansas City has given up single-digit point totals in four of the last five weeks, which is impressive regardless of the opponent. However, they must come to play tonight, facing a team that has played them tougher than anyone over the past few years.

For whatever reason, the Chargers have the Chiefs’ number. In six career games, Patrick Mahomes is averaging only 236.2 yards passing against them. On the Los Angeles side, this was the team that Justin Herbert made his impromptu first start against. He has been solid against the Chiefs, averaging 298 yards passing while throwing eight touchdowns to one interception in his three games. Herbert has also been strong in prime time, leading his team to a 3-1 record, posting 295.5 yards per game, a 116.5 passer rating and totaling 12 touchdowns against one interception in four night games.
