Well, for those fans who have been saying all season they prefer when the Raiders are underdogs, you get your wish this week. Despite sitting in the number one seed at 10-2, the Raiders will head to Kansas City Thursday with the 9-3 Chiefs pretty heavily favored. Here are the odds courtesy of OddsShark.
As you can see, the Chiefs are 3-point favorites which is the same margin the Raiders were favored over the 4-7 Panthers two weeks ago.
There is no question that this is a clash of titans. The Chiefs are likely favored for two reasons: It's in Kansas City, and the Chiefs already beat the Raiders this season.
So, it appears the Raiders still have this hurdle to clear before they get the respect of their conference leading record.
