#1 Patrick Mahomes passing yards? Passing touchdowns?

< 225, 225-259, 260-299, 300-349, 350-399, 400+

0-1, 2, 3, 4, 5+

Mahomes threw for 340 and two scores in the last meeting and it's not like the Vegas pass defense has gotten any better in a month. Knowing Andy Reid is 18-and-3 off the bye, I imagine the Chiefs get ahead early and run the ball late. That probably affects Mahomes' yardage. I'll say 315 yards and three passing touchdowns.

#2 Derek Carr passing yards? Passing touchdowns?

< 200, 220-229, 230-259, 260-289, 290-324, 325+

0, 1, 2, 3, 4+

I love when one quarterback has an option for five touchdowns and the other one doesn't. It cracks me up. Carr has every chance to throw as many touchdowns as Mahomes. After all, he torched Kansas City for 347 yards and three scores through the air in the last meeting. If the Raiders are trailing late, those numbers could be even bigger. I'll definitely take 325+ and two scores. Josh Jacobs will steal a score on the ground.

#3 First touchdown scorer of the game?

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Josh Jacobs, Tyreek Hill, Darren Waller, Travis Kelce, Nelson Agholor, Any other Chiefs player, Any other Raiders player

#4 Travis Kelce receptions? Receiving yards?

0-4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9+

< 50, 50-69, 70-89, 90-109, 110-129, 130+

Kelce is averaging 6.5 receptions a game this season. I feel like seven is a pretty solid number for catches against the Raiders. Guessing the yardage is super tough. He's gone over 100 receiving yards in his last two games and posted 108 yards against Vegas in the last meeting. Let's dip a little bit lower and say 95.

#5 Longest pass completion in third quarter?

< 20 yards, 20-25, 26-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-59, 60+

A 33-yard pass from Carr to Agholor off play-action. Kansas City is beatable down the field.

#6 Total points in the game?

<46, 46-50, 51-54, 55-57, 58-60, 61-64, 65-68, 69-74, 75+

There should be at least seven touchdowns in this game. These offensive are explosive and they have quick strike capability. Give me a couple field goals for good measure and we're at 55 points. Plus, "I Can't Drive 55" is one of my favorite songs of all-time. It makes too much sense.

#7 Winner? Margin of victory?

Kansas City Chiefs or Las Vegas Raiders?

1-2, 3, 4-5, 6, 7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20, 21+

The Chiefs are just too dangerous in this spot. I talked earlier about Andy Reid's incredible numbers off the bye. You can't ignore an 18-and-3 all-time record with extra time to prepare. Vegas has a very good offense, but I'll go with Kansas City looking for in-season revenge. Chiefs by 7, 31-24.
