Week 15 NFL picks: Chiefs vs. Raiders

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

In a battle of two struggling AFC West foes, most experts favor the home team.

The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs enter Week 15 jockeying for position -- not for a playoff spot, but rather for a higher pick at the 2013 NFL Draft. Neither team has played well this season, and they've really hit the skids the past month. The Raiders are 3-10 and have dropped 10 games in a row. The Chiefs are 2-11 and have won one game since late September.

Many experts around the country have filed their picks for Week 15. As for ESPN, nine of their 12 pundits think the Raiders will come out victorious at home. Their computer simulation for the game also likes Oakland to come out on top.

CBS Sports' guys made their picks against the spread. With the Raiders favored by 3½ points, five of their eight experts like them to win and cover the spread.

Three of FOX Sports' experts believe the Raiders will win, while Mike Harmon thinks Kansas City will pull the road upset.

Kickoff between Oakland and Kansas City is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 16.
