AFC West rivals clash when the defending division champion Kansas City Chiefs visit the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs, who won the division last year with a 12-4 record, opened the season with a 40-26 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, while the Raiders, who finished fourth at 4-12, held off the Denver Broncos 24-16 last Monday night. Sunday’s kickoff from RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland is set for 4:05 p.m. ET. The Chiefs have won four of the last six games played at Oakland, including last season’s 40-33 victory. Kansas City is a seven-point favorite in the latest Chiefs vs. Raiders odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 53.5. Before making any Chiefs vs. Raiders picks of your own, listen to the NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception four years ago. It has nailed its recent top-rated NFL picks, entering Week 2 of the 2019 NFL season on a sizzling 17-6 run that dates back to last season. It’s also on a strong 79-49 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model ranked inside the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch for the third straight year on straight-up NFL picks and beat over 96 percent of CBS Sports office pool players. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, the model has dialed in on Chiefs vs. Raiders. We can tell you it is leaning over, and it’s also locked in a strong against-the-spread pick that cashes in well over 50 percent of simulations. That one is only available at SportsLine.

The model knows the Chiefs entered the season as one of the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl in large part because of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who hasn’t missed a beat from his breakout season from a year ago. Against Jacksonville, Mahomes came out on fire, completing 25-of-33 passes for 378 yards and three touchdowns. In two career games against the Raiders, Mahomes has combined for 576 passing yards and six touchdowns.

Sixth-year veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins had a career game against the Jaguars. Watkins recorded nine catches on 11 targets for 198 yards and three scores, including one for 68 yards and another for 49. For his career, Watkins has been a steady force with 241 receptions for 3,769 yards and 31 touchdowns.

But just because the Chiefs are among the AFC’s elite does not guarantee they will cover the Chiefs vs. Raiders spread on Sunday.

That’s because Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has started the season red-hot. Against Denver, Carr completed 84.6 percent of his passes for 259 yards and one touchdown. He had just four incomplete passes and scored a quarterback rating of 121.0. In his six-year NFL career, Carr has thrown for 2,313 yards and 13 touchdowns against the Chiefs.

Wide receiver Tyrell Williams and tight end Darren Waller were Carr’s favorite targets on Monday. Williams caught six passes for 105 yards and one touchdown in his Raiders debut, while Waller had seven receptions for 70 yards. Both stepped in admirably for the now-departed Antonio Brown.

So who wins Raiders vs. Chiefs? And which side of the spread can you bank on in well over 50 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Raiders vs. Chiefs spread to jump on Sunday, all from the advanced model that is up more than $7,000 on its top-rated NFL picks, and find out.
