NFL Week 1 Predictions - Chargers vs. Chiefs Odds: In 2010 NFL week 1 predictions action, two AFC West foes clash in an exciting Monday Night Football NFL picks match-up as the San Diego Chargers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City. Vegas odds have placed the Chargers as 4 1/2-point NFL predicitons road favorites. The Chargers were 5-3 against the spread (ATS) on the road in the 2009 NFL picks season and the Seahawks were 2-6 at home ATS as the underdog. The Chargers have won five straight NFL predictions contests in this series going back to 2007 and won in blow-outs 43-14 and 37-7 last season.
The Chargers come into this MNF NFL picks contest with some question marks on an offense that was prolific as any team in the NFL in 2009. Gone, though, are LaDanian Tomlinson, the future-HOF running back, and Vincent Jackson, a disgruntled but talented wide receiver. In their stead is rookie first round draft pick Ryan Mathews at running back and 4th-year receiver Legedu Naanee. Both have a world of potential but little experience. Naanee presents NFL picks match-up problems for defenses with his height and speed so the Chargers are hoping he will find a home in San Diego’s offense right away.
San Diego is still dangerous on offense, though, with quarterback Phillip Rivers, tight end Antonio Gates, wide receiver Malcolm Floyd, and a veteran offensive line. Last year, Rivers dominated the Chiefs, putting-up 317 and 268 yards through the air. It is reasonable to expect more of the same for the 2010 NFL picks season but, under defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, the Chiefs have a confident, attacking style. They also have some talented players such as DEs Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey and linebacker Tamba Hali who have potential that has yet to be tapped.
Predicting the Chiefs to stop Rivers and company is asking a lot, though, so anticipate a close NFL predictions match-up but probably not enough to cover the NFL point spread, even at home, even on Monday Night Football.
