The Chiefs lead the all-time series 69-54-2 after beating the Raiders 41-14 in Las Vegas on Nov. 14. Kansas City has dominated the series lately, winning 12 of the last 14 meetings.

The Raiders come into this game having lost four of their past five games, with issues on offense being a factor. Las Vegas has been held to 16 points or fewer in four of their past five games.

The Raiders are 0-6 this season when quarterback Derek Carr is held below 300 yards passing, 6-0 when he throws for more than 300 yards.

On the year, Carr is 306-for-451 passing (67.8 percent) for 3,663 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

"The Raiders are uneven," FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd said. "They have an interim coach (Rich Bisaccia) and had tragedy, so of course they are uneven. But they've got firepower."

On the other hand, the Chiefs are hot. Kansas City is on a five-game winning streak after starting the season 3-4. This is the team's ninth consecutive season (an NFL record) with a winning streak of at least five games.

The Chiefs have allowed only 11.2 points per game during their current streak, holding all five opponents to 17 points or fewer.

Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes has cooled after a hot start.

Mahomes, the NFL MVP for the 2018 season, has failed to throw a touchdown pass in back-to-back games for the first time in his NFL or college career (Texas Tech). Mahomes has thrown 12 interceptions this season, matching the highest single-season total of his career (2018).

Overall, Mahomes is 309-for-478 passing (64.6 percent) for 3,384 yards and 25 touchdowns this season.

With his next victory, Chiefs coach Andy Reid will become the first head coach in NFL history to win at least 100 regular-season games with two franchises. Reid is 99-41 in the regular season with Kansas City after going 130-93-1 with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999 to 2012.

FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd: "I would take the Raiders here. They went to Dallas and won two weeks ago. This is a potent offense. … This is also a divisional game, and those are always closer. It's very difficult to trounce a division rival two times in a year. You are going to get a super-charged Raiders team with a little chip on their shoulder.

"This is one of my stronger plays. I love the Raiders."

PICK: Raiders (+9.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 9.5 points (or win outright)
