How to bet the Week 2 Thursday Night Football game

NFC West football promises to be a whole lot of fun this season and we get a primetime game to kick off Week 2 featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the game. Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert regularly hit “wow” throws that would land on most quarterback career highlights. This will be a matchup with implications in the AFC West divisional race but also for the watercooler on the “he did what?!” moments that make this game so special.

The over/under is set appropriately high for a contest between these two gunslingers. When you have two offenses that have the capability of putting up 40+ points regularly squaring off on a short week, I like the hitting the over. The Chargers get 3.5 points as the away team, giving a slight nod to the Chiefs advantage at home. Because it’s a divisional game that could go either way, and the book is giving the half point on the Chargers side of 3 points, I like the Chargers to keep it within 3. Furthermore, because I do think this is a last possession type of game, I’ll take my chances with the Chargers' moneyline.
