A pair of AFC West rivals will face each other in week 7 of the NFL season when the Los Angeles Chargers travel to Kansas City, Missouri to face the Kansas City Chiefs with the game airing nationally at 4:25 PM ET on CBS on Sunday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Chargers enter this game with a record of 2-3 following a 17-20 loss at home against the Dallas Cowboys while failing to cover the 1.5-point spread as a home underdog in week 6 of the NFL season. Los Angeles scored 17 points while compiling a total of 272 yards offensively which included 227 passing yards and 53 rushing yards while allowing 20 points and 342 total yards defensively which included 272 passing yards and 96 rushing yards.

Austin Ekeler led the team in rushing with 14 carries for 27 yards while adding four receptions for 35 yards. Keenan Allen led the team in receiving, catching seven of 11 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown.
Kansas City enters this game with a record of 5-1 following a 19-8 win at home against the Denver Broncos while covering the 10.5-point spread as a home favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. The Chiefs scored 19 points while compiling a total of 389 yards offensively which included 306 passing yards and 96 rushing yards while allowing 8 points and 197 total yards defensively which included 95 passing yards and 115 rushing yards.

Isiah Pacheco led the team in rushing with 16 carries for 62 yards while adding six receptions for 36 yards. Travis Kelce led the team in receiving, catching all nine targets for 124 yards.
BookMaker has the Kansas City Chiefs listed as 5-point favorites at home against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon in week 7 of the NFL season. Kansas City has won seven of the last ten including the previous three matchups in a row while the Chargers are 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series. Los Angeles is 2-3 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 0-1 ATS as an underdog, and 1-0 ATS in division games this season while the Kansas City Chiefs are 4-2 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, 4-2 ATS as a favorite, and 1-0 ATS in division games on the year.
The Los Angeles Chargers have had a disappointing start to the season with a record of 2-3 and have struggled to cover the spread going 2-3 ATS overall while the Kansas City Chiefs remain the kings of the AFC West with a record of 5-1 and have been the best team in the division at covering the spread going 4-2 ATS overall. I look for that to continue on Sunday afternoon which is why I am laying the 5 points and taking the Kansas City Chiefs at home.
