Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs Same Game Parlay Picks and Predictions

NFL betting expert Michael Crosson gives his same game parlay selection for Monday night's primetime matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. Odds provided by DraftKings.

Raiders vs. Chiefs SGP Picks

  • Las Vegas Raiders Over 22.5 Points Scored (+105)
  • Davante Adams (LVR) Over 74.5 Receiving Yards (-125)
  • Travis Kelce (KC) Over 64.5 Receiving Yards (-145)

Payout: +380

Raiders’ fans entered Week 1 with sky high expectations, as Vegas earned the top Wild Card spot in the AFC with a record of 10-7 last year, and this past offseason, they brought in All-Pro WR Davante Adams and head coach Josh McDaniels to help steer the ship. However, things haven’t exactly gone as planned, as the Raiders opened the season with consecutive losses to the Chargers, Cardinals, and Titans, with all three of those losses coming by less than a touchdown, before finally getting over the hump with a win over the Broncos in Week 4.

However, the Raiders’ underwhelming start certainly isn’t due to a lack of offensive production, as Derek Carr and co. scored 22+ PTS on 324+ YDS in three-of-four matchups to open the season, and their defense simply hasn’t pulled its weight in return, as the Raiders also surrendered 23+ PTS in all four of those contests (25 PPG). So, I’ll back that trend to continue against a Chiefs squad that’s allowed 20+ PTS in all four of their contests this season (24 PPG).

Davante Adams has been on quite the rollercoaster to begin his Raiders’ tenure, as Adams hauled in 19-of-30 targets for 242 receiving yards against the Chargers and Broncos in Weeks 1 and 4. However, Adams was very quiet in Weeks 2 and 3, as he caught just 7-of-17 targets for 48 yards in matchups against the Cardinals and Titans.

I’ll back him to have another solid night here, as Adams leads the team in target share by a distant margin at 32%, with Mack Hollins and Darren Waller standing next in line at roughly 17% apiece; and if the Raiders plan on keeping things competitive in Monday’s contest, they’re going to need some big plays from Adams.

Travis Kelce has been Mr. Everything for Kansas City’s offense early in the season, as Kelce reeled in 26-of-34 targets for 322 receiving yards and three touchdowns across the Chiefs’ first four matchups, which leads Kansas City’s pass-catchers by a pretty wide margin with JuJu Smith-Schuster next in the pecking order with 19 receptions for 224 yards.

Kelce averaged 80.5 receiving yards across the Chiefs’ first four matchups of the season, however, he still posted two performances in the 50-yard-range during that span, which is pretty uncommon for him, considering he registered 65+ receiving yards in 12 of the 19 contests he participated in last year. So, I’ll back Kelce to start building some momentum here.
