2. Clyde Edwards-Helaire– Rushing Yards (55.5)
The Chargers are very soft against the run when teams have a solid front and that’s exactly what the Chiefs have, especially along the interior with Joe Thuney, Creed Humphrey, and Trey Smith across the middle at guard and center. Orlando Brown Jr. certainly knows how to maul as well. That means good things for both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams.
The tandem approach could scare away bettors here, but here’s the deal: the Chiefs had 186 rushing yards in the first game, and given the injury status of Denzel Perryman (out), it makes sense to maintain that approach in Week 15 for the Chiefs offense. That should mean plenty of carries and yards on the ground for both backs and simply not a high threshold at all.
And in case you think that was an anomaly, it wasn’t. The Cowboys had 198 yards on the ground against the Bolts. The Browns had 230 and the Ravens had 187. The Eagles had 173 as well. Good teams know how to take advantage of weakness and that’s what has happened to the Chargers this year.
Pick: Over (-110)
