Raiders vs. Chiefs 2013 odds: Kansas City heavily favored at home against Oakland

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The undefeated Chiefs will host the Raiders in Week 6.

The Oakland Raiders will be on the road in Week 6 against their division rivals in Kansas City. The unbeaten Chiefs have become the league's most unlikely success story, but has shown great balance on offense and defense. The Raiders have also impressed at times with quarterback Terrelle Pryor as well. Still, the Chiefs' season record has Las Vegas strongly favoring the home team by 10 points, according to OddsShark.

The Chiefs will look to move the ball with short-yardage passing against the Raiders. The time of possession will be Andy Reid's game on Sunday and Alex Smith is the perfect quarterback to control the clock. With a stellar defense, scoring a ton of points will not be necessary against the Raiders. The Kansas City defense will likely blitz Pryor consistently on Sunday in order to throw off his passing game, but will need to contain his ability to run.

The Raiders will need to get the ball out quick to avoid the Kansas City pass rush that has been disheveling opposing quarterbacks in recent weeks. Oakland is coming off an impressive victory over the Chargers and will attempt to repeat their defensive performance against the Chiefs. Pryor will have to find a way to get the ball to the ball to Denarius Moore and Rod Streater against the strong Chiefs' secondary.
