The Las Vegas Raiders look to close out a disappointing 2022 season on a high note, as they play host to division rival Kansas City in Week 18.
On Saturday, the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs will kick off the NFL’s Week 18 slate, as they will battle it out inside Allegiant Stadium at 1:30PM PT. These are two AFC West teams that are having completely different seasons, as the Raiders failed to make a playoff run in 2022, and the Chiefs are once again one of the best teams in the NFL.
This past weekend, the Raiders were actually still alive in the playoff race as they went to overtime with the San Francisco 49ers, as the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets lost earlier in the day. However, as has been the case all season long, the Silver and Black suffered another close loss, falling to 6-10 on the season.
Raiders vs Chiefs Odds Week 18
According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Raiders are underdogs at home in this one, getting 7.5 points from the Kansas City Chiefs. The over/under is currently set at 52.5, so there should be some offense on display Sunday. A money line bet on the Silver and Black would come in at +310, while a pick on the Chiefs would not net you much money, as they are currently -390.
Raiders vs Chiefs Prediction Week 18
Las Vegas one of the worst teams in the NFL this season, and are on pace to be picking in the top-10 after making the playoffs last year. In Week 17, we did get a great preview of what could be with Jarrett Stidham at quarterback, as he hung in the pocket all game, made plays with his feet, and also threw for over 350 yards and three touchdowns.
Stidham was able to accomplish this despite playing against one of the best defenses in the NFL.
The Las Vegas Raiders have one more game to go in their 2022 regular season, giving Jarrett Stidham another chance to put some good play on tape.
Kansas City is not as talented as San Francisco is on defense, but they have incredible weapons on offense, and are looking to nail down the No. 1 seed in the AFC in Week 18. They will be ready to play, and when all is said and done, we should be looking at a ten-point victory for the Chiefs in this one.
Final Score: Chiefs 34, Raiders 24
