Chargers vs. Chiefs Monday Night Point Spread Preview, Expert Picks, Score Prediction

The San Diego Chargers disappointed coming off a bye last week, as they blew a 21-10 halftime lead and lost 27-21 to the New York Jets.

The Kansas City Chiefs, meanwhile, have now won three straight games after an 0-3 start and suddenly find themselves just one game behind San Diego in the AFC West, making this a big game for both teams.




The Chargers are (-3) road favorites at odds of (-130), with the total set at 44.




ODDS: OPEN: CHARGERS -3.5 | CURRENT: CHARGERS -3 | O/U: 44


1. Why San Diego will cover the spread: The Chargers look like the superior team on paper, and they now have Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson and Ryan Matthews all back and healthy at the same time. Thus, they should cover this spread if they merely play to their full capabilities for an entire game. The Chargers looked like the best team in football in the first half last week, and they then got shut out in the second half with Philip Rivers uncharacteristically throwing two late interceptions.

Well, Rivers is not facing Darrell Revis here and San Diego knows the importance of this divisional battle, so look for a focused effort from start to finish.

2. Why Kansas City will cover the spread: The Chiefs will cover this spread if their defense plays as well as it did while shutting out the Raiders last week and if it continues to run the ball effectively. Kansas City has actually assembled a pretty good defense and this unit returned two interceptions for touchdowns last week. The Chiefs can be run on, but truth be told, they would rather allow a few yards on the ground than commit to stopping it and allow Rivers to hit Gates and Jackson all game long.

Also, the Chiefs looked done once running back Jamaal Charles was lost for the season, but they may have found a suitable replacement in Jackie Battle, who has rushed for 195 yards on 35 carries (5.6 YPC) the last two games, and the Chargers just allowed a season best 112 rushing yards to Shonn Greene while coming off the bench.




3. Total Talk: While we have no doubt the Chargers will be much more focused this week, that does not mean the Kansas City defense will give them anything, at least not through the air. Thus, look for a heavier reliance than usual on Matthews and on Michael Tolbert between the 20s before Rivers starts looking for his favorite big target in Gates, Jackson and Floyd in the red zone.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs saw what Greene just did despite getting benched in favor of LaDainian Tomlinson, so look for Battle to continue to see lots of work on the ground. With that in mind, the ‘under’ seems like the play here, despite the threat of the Chargers being aggressive with the pass from the start.



4. Betting Trends for the game: The Chiefs are 23-11 ATS in October since 2002, but on the flip side they are also 12-22 ATS at home since 2007. The ‘under’ is 5-0 in the last five Kansas City divisional games. The Chargers are just 2-7-1 in their last 10 games as a road favorite, but the Chiefs are 1-4 ATS following a win of more than 14 points.



5. Chargers-Chiefs MNF Prediction: Chargers 24 – Chiefs 17

Wisconsin vs. Ohio State Point Spread Preview, Expert Picks, Score Prediction

It was a bit surprising that the Wisconsin Badgers were ranked sixth in the BCS Standings before last week considering they were ranked fourth in the human polls and were considered legitimate national title contenders, but apparently the computers knew best in light of their 37-31 loss at Michigan State on a game ending Hail Mary.

Ohio State is just 4-3 SU, but the defense seems as strong as ever and the Buckeyes are coming off of a bye week after a dominating defensive performance at Illinois.

Oddsmakers have installed Wisconsin as a (-7) road favorite here with the total posted at 50½.



BETTING ODDS: OPEN: WISC -7.5 | CURRENT: WISC -7 | O/U: 51


1. Why Ohio State will cover the spread: The Buckeyes will cover this spread if their defense plays as well as it has at home all year and the offense does not turn the ball over. Ohio State is allowing just 12.2 points and 265.5 yards per game at home this year, and the Buckeyes even took that defense on the road with them two weeks ago in a 17-7 win in Champaign where they held the Illini to 285 total yards and forced three turnovers. They were also ultra conservative on offense as quarterback Braxton Miller threw just four passes the entire game and completed one, although it was a 17-yard touchdown toss.


That approach might work here again as it would keep the Wisconsin offense off the field, but we do think Ohio State has to have at least some minimal success through the air to make covering the spread easier.



2. Why Wisconsin will cover the spread: First and foremost, the Badgers have to shake off last week’s loss and play the same offense they have played all year, which may be easier said than done after a crushing defeat that dashed their title hopes. If they do come to play, the Badgers are much more balanced offensively this season thanks to the passing of Russell Wilson, and as a result, they are averaging a whopping 47.4 points on 511.7 total yards per game.




3. Total Talk: Now this posted total looks low at first glance given those Wisconsin offensive numbers, but we actually feel that this game screams ‘under’. The Badgers are facing easily the best defense they have faced all season, and try as they might, we just do not think they will shake off that Spartans’ loss so easily, so we are looking for the most sluggish offensive performance from them all year.


And when the Buckeyes have the ball, while they may throw a few more than four passes this week, we still expect them to stay conservative for the most part, especially if the running game that produced 211 rushing yards vs. Illinois clicks once again.



4. Betting Trends for the game: Wisconsin is 13-3-1 ATS in its last 17 games overall, but Ohio State is 17-4 ATS in its last 21 home games. The ‘under’ is 8-1 in Ohio State’s last nine games as an underdog, as well as 6-2-1 in the last nine head-to-head meetings.

Speaking of head-to-head, the underdog has howled eight of the L/11 times these division rivals butted heads on the gridiron.




5. Ohio State-Wisconsin Prediction: Wisconsin 23 – Ohio State 21





Upset Alert: Kansas State To Hand Oklahoma Second Straight Upset Loss

The Oklahoma Sooners saw their dreams for a national title most likely slashed by Texas Tech last week, and teams that had a realistic chance of winning it all almost always come out flat the following week after getting those chances crushed. Meanwhile, it is the Kansas State Wildcats that enter this game undefeated at 7-0.

The oddsmakers do not seem to care, as they have installed the Sooners as double-digit (-13½) favorites in this game despite it being on the road in Manhattan vs. an unbeaten team. The posted total sits at 58½.



ODDS: OPEN: OKL -13.5 | CURRENT: OKL -14.5 | O/U: 58.5


Oklahoma-Kansas State Offenses: Now we get that Oklahoma is capable of lighting up the scoreboard if it brings it best effort, as the Sooners are averaging 44.3 points and 545.6 total yards per game and have one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Landry Jones. That said, they may be going up against the second best defense they have faced all year here, and remember that they scored a season low 23 points vs. the best defense they faced at Florida State.


Also, you cannot discount the expected malaise that the Sooners are expected to display early on after getting basically eliminated from title contention with so many teams still undefeated, so the offense may take longer than usual to get on track.

Kansas State has not put up Oklahoma numbers offensively and the Wildcats have a one dimensional running attack, but that has obviously served them well to this point. They have gone 7-0 by rushing for 213.5 yards per game, and they are extremely capable of shortening this game by consistently moving the chains with that running game and keeping the potent Oklahoma offense on the sideline.

Also, it is not as if K-State cannot score if they have to, as they scored 36 points to beat Baylor, 41 to beat the same Texas Tech team that toppled Oklahoma and 28 to beat the Miami Hurricanes. The Cats scored a season high 59 points last week, although that was vs. a dreadful Kansas club.





Oklahoma-Kansas State Defenses: Kansas State does have the defense to at least keep Oklahoma in check, especially if the Sooners come out as lethargic as we expect. The Wildcats are allowing just 19.7 points and 337.1 total yards per game, and those averages drop to a more minute 14.8 points and 270.8 yards here at home, where they are allowing just 2.6 yards per rush and 6.6 yards per pass attempt. Keep in mind that this includes games vs. the high-octane Baylor and Texas Tech offenses.


We have felt all year that the Oklahoma defense would hold them back from winning the national championship, and that came to fruition much earlier than expected when the Sooners allowed 572 total yards to Texas Tech with that outing at home in Norman no less. They now must prepare for a completely different style of offense and this game is in hostile territory.



Oklahoma-Kansas State Prediction: The crowd should be raucous in Manhattan for this game, as a win by Kansas State would allow them to overtake Oklahoma in the polls and probably the BCS Standings, which nobody would have predicted before the year. Look for the Wildcats to do just that in another upset.



Kansas State 38 – Oklahoma 34




Updated 2011 BCS Rankings & Our Best College Football Handicappers Past 30 Days

I think it is safe to say that the 2011 BCS Rankings are going to become one hell of a crazy ride after LSU and Alabama square off on November 4th.



Will the loser of Alabama-LSU fall to #3 in the BCS rankings behind Oklahoma State? OSU still has to run through the remaining BIG 12 gauntlet that concludes December 3rd against Oklahoma.

Boise State may finally get their opportunity at the BCS National Title game this season if the winner of LSU/Bama loses in the SEC Championship game or if Oklahoma State falls to the Sooners in December.
