The Kansas City Chiefs head into Week 18 battling it out for the AFC's No. 1 seed in the playoffs. They go on the road to take on the Raiders in Las Vegas. While Vegas will be without its starting quarterback Derek Carr, as he's been shut down for the season while they determine his future with the team, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will all be suited up ready to go.
Patrick Mahomes Betting Trend
Up to this point his career, Patrick Mahomes has made 15 starts against AFC West divisional opponents on the road. He has won every single one of them. Now, as the Saturday matchup approaches, Mahomes ins in a great spot to continue this streak.
The Raiders will be depleted on both sides of the ball and the Chiefs have something to play for. I would expect a big win from the Chiefs, and for them to have their foot on the gas from the first kick, all led my Mahomes.
Mahomes also needs 430 passing yards to break Peyton Manning's single-season passing record, which isn't a priority but is certainly something to watch out for that might give him a little more incentive to sling the ball.
The Chiefs are currently 8.5-point road favorites in Week 18 against the Raiders, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
Mahomes' passing yardage prop is also set at 331.5 yards, with even -110 odds on both the over and the under.
