The Chiefs face the Chargers at home on Monday Night Football this week. Take a closer look at the odds tonight, as well as some of the more attractive prop bets on the board. All content comes courtesy of SB Nation's odds partners at

We had three best bets during Week 8 of the NFL betting season and all were small road favorites. Two of them already came around with ease (Detroit 45-10 at Denver as a three point chalk and Cincinnati 34-12 at Seattle as one point chalk) and the third one should be cashed by midnight on Monday Night Football.

San Diego comes off a loss at the Jets and gets a game it can easily here against a division foe. The Chargers opened as 3.5-point chalk and the number has stayed around -3 all week. One shop is daring you to pick the Chiefs by offering +3.5 as of Monday afternoon. [ Full Chargers vs Chiefs matchup report ]

The Chiefs come off an impressive 28-0 win over Oakland last week and barely lost to San Diego in Week (20-17) as huge 14-point road dogs. Has enough changed to make KC a legitimate threat to cover the spread here in Week 8?

Well, they have lost 7 of 8 to the Chargers, but at home, they have been moneymakers against their AFC West foes. In 14 home games, the Chiefs are 9-4-1 ATS past 14 vs the Chargers. KC has also been tough as a small underdog, going 7-1 ATS past 8 as a pup of 4 points or less.

And while there is no discernible trend on the total (which sat at 44.5 midday Monday) in these meetings, San Diego has been a reliable OVER bet recently on the road (OVER is 8-1-1 past 10 SD road games).

As always, Monday Night props are a big part of the NFL odds menu with dozens of fantasy football style lines for your amusement (and profit potential). MNF Pick: Chargers -3
