Sports Prediction
The lines opened the Chiefs as a favorite going into Thursday Night’s game with a -7 spread. Considering the circumstance, the Chiefs should have no problem leaving Oakland with a win. Though, this is going to be a very defensive game. Our team believes that the Chiefs will not be able to cover the spread. Therefore, our sports prediction would have to be Oakland Raiders +7 ½ provided by Bovada.
