The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a heartbreaking loss on Monday Night Football, but are in a great spot to bounce back against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 12.

Sure, the Chiefs will likely beat the Raiders on Sunday, but can they cover the sizable spread? That's what I'm going to write about in this betting preview for the AFC West showdown.

Chiefs vs. Raiders key players to watch

Kansas City Chiefs

Rashee Rice: Can I just put the entire Chiefs' receiving core under "key players to watch"? They are the only position group that's holding this team back, basically being the main cause for two of their three losses this season. Rashee Rice, or someone else, needs to step up in a big way if they want to defend their Super Bowl title.

Las Vegas Raiders

Josh Jacobs: It's not so much Josh Jacobs himself, it's more the entire running game of the Raiders that is key for them in this game, including the offensive line. The key to beating the Chiefs is running the ball and attacking them where they're the weakest on defense. Unfortunately, so far this season they've been one of the worst running teams in the NFL.

Chiefs vs. Raiders prediction and pick

The Chiefs offense has struggled this season, there's no doubt about that. Despite posting good metrics, ill-timed turnovers and drops have kept them from living up to their potential. Now is the time for a bounce-back spot against their divisional rivals.

The Raiders defense has been a decent unit this season, but their offense leaves a lot to be desired. I have no faith in an offense that's 28th in EPA per Play and 27th in yards per play to be able to move the ball against this stout Chiefs defense.

The only way to move the ball against the Chiefs' defense is by running it and the Raiders are dead last in Rush EPA and 31st in yards per carry.

Chiefs win big.
