  • Early AFC West Supremacy Is At Stake For The Winner

The 1-0 Los Angeles Chargers will face the 1-0 Kansas City Chiefs in tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football, where the winner will be granted sole possession of the AFC West Division lead.

During Week 1, the Chargers narrowly escaped the Las Vegas Raiders while the Chiefs were able to beat the talented Arizona Cardinals by 23 points.

NFL point spreads across the board are favoring KC to win by 4, but there are some variances that can be taken advantage of by looking around to see all the moneyline odds that online sportsbooks have posted.

In the below Thursday Night Football betting line, we’ve compared all of the lines at our top sportsbook sites for betting on the Kansas City Chiefs and LA Chargers and have presented them in the order of Bovada, BetOnline, MyBookie, and BetUS.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs

  • Chargers Point Spread: +4.0 | +4.0 | -4.0
  • Chargers Moneyline: +175 | +175 | +151 | +175
  • Chiefs Point Spread: -4.0 | -4.0 | -4.0
  • Chiefs Moneyline: -210 | -205 | -215 | -210
  • Over/Under: 54.0 | 54.0 | 54.0 | 54.0

The top four NFL sportsbooks that we frequent the most have posted identical TNF point spreads and over/under totals. Straight-up winner bets can be shopped across the four books, however.

Bets on the Chargers winning the game should be placed at either Bovada, BetOnline, or BetUS, and the +175 odds they’re offering where a $1 wager will result in a $2.75 payout if Los Angeles is victorious tonight.

BetOnline is currently holding the Chiefs odds that are closest to even at -205, requiring a bet of $2.05 to net $1 on the prospect of KC winning the game.

All books predict a final combined point total from both teams to equal 54, which, when combined with the spreads, suggests a final score of KC 29, LA 25.

The following NFL prop bets implies a lot of passing tonight, which should come as no surprise as both teams sport healthy aerial attacks.

Patrick Mahomes II (KC) Total Touchdowns Passing

  • Over 2.5 -106
  • Under 2.5 -124

Justin Herbert (LAC) Total Touchdowns Passing

  • Over 2.5 +177
  • Under 2.5  -239

Mahomes has the better shot at tossing three TDs among the two starting quarterbacks, but both are favored to finish with at least two passing touchdowns.  There are also NFL props for the most likely players to receive these TD passes.

Odds For Scoring A Touchdown

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster KC +150
  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling KC +220
  • Mecole Hardman KC +260
  • Travis Kelce KC -167
  • Gerald Everett LAC +250
  • Joshua Palmer LAC +270
  • Mike Williams LAC +160

The above TD prop actually places Kansas City’s star tight end, Travis Kelce, with a negative moneyline for catching a touchdown tonight. The Chargers will be without Keenan Allen this evening, their #1 receiver, and his absence from the above proposition is conspicuous.

With Allen out, Justin Herbert will need to spread the ball around to his other options, and the best one for tonight appears to be WR Mike Williams with a +160 moneyline.

Be sure to place your TNF bets right now if you are certain of where you want to lay your action. Uncertain gamblers can opt for NFL live betting lines that begin taking wagers as soon as the kickoff happens.  Good luck!
