Your Kansas City Chiefs can take a commanding lead in the AFC West with a win in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Chiefs have three straight wins over their division rival, but each game was decided by one score. Los Angeles always plays Kansas City tough and Justin Herbert is one of the few quarterbacks in the league who can stand toe-to-toe with Patrick Mahomes as of late.

Despite the recent close contests, oddsmakers expect a convincing home win for the Chiefs.

Let's look at the opening odds below and how you can claim an instant $200 bonus from DraftKings for the game.

Chargers vs. Chiefs Week 7 Opening Odds

Kansas City opened as 5.5-point favorites against the Chargers with the total points set at 50.5. Propelled by one of the league's best defenses, the Chiefs bring a five-game winning streak into Week 7, covering the spread in four of those wins.

Los Angeles is 2-2 against the spread (ATS) heading into a Monday Night Football matchup with the Cowboys. Dallas's physicality will provide an extra challenge for the Chargers on short rest next week, so I expect a punishing game plan from Andy Reid.

Playing at home is a boost for the Chiefs, as they're 5-2 ATS in their last seven games at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chargers are shaky on the road, having won just three of their previous seven, and an electric Kansas City crowd certainly provides an edge.

The Chiefs' defense hasn't allowed more than 21 points yet this season and is typically stout at home. As a result, the under is 7-2 in Kansas City's last nine home games.
