Tonight we have possibly one of the best Thursday Night Football games of the season in a matchup between the Chargers and Chiefs. Both teams are coming off impressive wins in week 1. Patrick Mahomes looked absolutely dominant, throwing 5 TD passes against the lowly Arizona Defense. Herbert looked strong as well, even after losing top target Keenan Allen to injury early in the game. The Chargers front seven on Defense looked impressive against an abysmal Raiders Offensive line.
As I was pouring over the books looking for potential bets to take in this game, I found one edge that I think I like. On Fanduel, the Chargers are sitting at +3.5 for the First Half. I love this. Other books still have this spread at 2.5 or 3. If you see this, hammer this bet. I think this game stays close early on and throughout the first half, before the Chiefs take over and pull away in the Second Half of the game.
As for a prop, I love Mike Williams Anytime TD here. I think he bounces back with a huge game here tonight for the Chargers. I drafted him early in fantasy, so he needs to for the sake of my fake team.
I'm really looking forward to this game, it should be a great one.
