But, the best way to cash in on the biggest game of the week might be on the alternate spreads. Online sportsbooks like Bovada feature dozens of these alternate betting opportunities.
Alternate Sunday Night Football Spread – Kansas City
- Chiefs -10 (+125)
- Raiders +10 (-165)
The last time these two teams faced off the Raiders pulled off the upset with a final score of 40-32. That game took place in Arrowhead, but even with the Chiefs traveling this time around many are expecting the Chiefs to get their revenge.
Part of that reason is Kansas City comes into this matchup 9-1 against the spread versus a team with a winning record.
Their last game may have some worried that they could cover because NFL bettors saw them narrowly escape against the Carolina Panthers and fail to cover the spread. But, one trend on their side is that the Chiefs are also 5-0 ATS in their last five games following an ATS defeat.
The Chiefs are coming into this game rested and fairly healthy coming off of a bye week so there is a chance they could win by more than 10 points.
If betting on the Chiefs spread, this alternate line provides some more lucrative odds than the standard 7.5 points line with -115 odds.
