NFL Week 9 Thursday Night Football Chiefs vs Chargers Odds

San Diego Chargers: Lightning Bolts firing blanks

Frustrating! That one word sums up how fans of the San Diego Chargers have been feeling over the past three weeks. The Lightning Bolts gave up a 10-point lead late in a 31-24 road loss at New Orleans in Week 5 before topping that by blowing a 24-0 half time in Week 6 as they lost 35-24 at home to Denver. San Diego came out of their bye week and dropped a  7-6 snoozefest to the lowly Browns during Week 8 action.

Kansas City Chiefs: Bringing up the rear at 1-6 in the AFC West Division

Huge issues at the quarterback position, questionable coaching, and a defense that is giving up an average of 29.8 points per game adds up to 1-6 record for Kansas City Chiefs as they reach the halfway point of their NFL 2012 season. The Chiefs looked like they were turning the corner with a 27-24 overtime win on the road over New Orleans back in Week 3 but they have now lost four straight by a 110-52 final count.

Chargers vs. Chiefs Online Sports Betting Game Night Prediction

Surfing over to the online sports wagering website, we find the Chargers as gaudy -8 point chalk and -340 on the money line. Kansas City gets a +270 ML while the O/U is posted at 42 points. As much as we don’t trust San Diego, we trust the the Chiefs even less in this AFC West showdown. The Chargers are at home and will field the better QB in this contest. Our November bankroll opens with a $10K balance. We’ll double our normal 10% wager and back the Bolts with the -340 ML at the Bovada sportsbook.
